    Bore scope

    " Not for Colonoscopy " . Lol There is nothing wrong with knowing what the barrel looks like but if it ain't broke don't fix it . My barrels shoot better when they are not clean . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    Barrel cleaning, carbon and copper

    I seldom clean a rifle barrel until groups start to open up which takes a lot of shooting . I do run a bore snake through it every now and again . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    Minimum safe loads- which data do I use

    What is the shoulder length from base on full sized or new factory brass and brass fired in the gun . If the difference is enough to cause problems the fix would be to fire form brass to your chamber with powder puff loads . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    30-06 & 180...

    I have tried all of the bullets mentioned over the past 40+ years and all put down game as expected with only a few exceptions . Lately I have been using what is as close to the " majic bullet " as there is . Cavity back bullets . The 168 grain in 30/06 is super accurate handles wind like a...

    30-06 & 180...

    Are you sure it was partitions? 1 the front portion doesn't separate it expands vilontly and fragments leaving the back portion to continue on and exit . You must be shooting them really slow to be recovering them as they almost always exit . Back in the late 80s or early 90s ballistic tips...

    Load problems- Feel like starting over....Where do I start?

    Bullets touching the lands doesn't give any room for change in pressure because of powder variation from lot to lot or temperature change . I would carefully recheck all measurements and back bullets up a few thousands and powder down a couple of grains and start over . Different bullets...

    Best 243 bullet for deer?

    90 grain accubond is a great bullet . The accubond has a flat face when expanded which leaves a bigger hole and displaces more tissue than bullets that mushrooms with round faces . Probably the best . 243 bullet ever designed is the 92 grain cavity back maximum kill zone ...

    Bullet jump?

    Why would you think you would not be able to with some bullets ? People confuse OAL with CBTO length . The OAL determines if it will fit in the magazine the base to oglive length determines how much if any bullet jump . It is possible for one bullet of a certain weight to be crammed into the...

    Bullet jump?

    You have to check the bullet jump for each bullet you load . One brand 180 grain bullet may have a . 020 jump at a given OAL and a 180 grain bullet of a different brand may be crammed tight or . 040 out at the same OAl .That is because different shaped bullets of the same weight have the ogive...

    Deer running after being hit?

    Kinda hard for the heart to pump blood to follow when shredded . Always best to get above the heart and take out both lungs if you need a blood trail . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk

    Deer running after being hit?

    Dead deer do not run , if your deer ran over 100 yards it was because you didn't kill it quickly , period . If you take out the cns they are down right there ( spine included) . If you take out both lungs they have 3 to 10 seconds before going down depending on whether...

    Polar Bear, 1920

    From the angle of arrows I would say the bear was facing him and standing on hind legs or less likely asleep . Unless the rear shaft is a tranquilizer delivery system . Sent from my LM-K920 using Tapatalk
