    Too old.

    Good stuff above on the 30-06. Here's another one that has been easy going with whatever I try with it. Just goes along with the program and makes life easy. It's a peep sighted 7600 so I don't expect scoped results, but it does well. First target is at 100 trying a load that shot well in a...

    Too old.

    My story is pretty much the same. Growing up I never liked the 30-06 mostly because a whole lot of people older than me had one. Seemed like everybody had one. Then later on in life I started loading for it and realized why so many people had one. It's just a great cartridge and works. I...

    Alliant Powder Availability

    Yep. And where did that come from? The U.S. advertised on a giant billboard in full display for the world to see it's weakness, ineptness, fecklessness, and inability to cope in any meaningful way under the current leadership, when we withdrew in the manner we did from Afghanistan. That set...

    Alliant Powder Availability

    Not me. I'm not going to shoot it all up because that would be both wasteful and dumb, but I got enough to keep shooting reasonable and have plenty to last so I am when I want to, or have something I feel I ought to work on. Don't want to waste it, but I'm gonna use enough of it to stay on top...

    Too old.

    (y) For providing, or defending, either one, lots of options that will work. I've done my best to be prepared for both. No reason to live in fear but it's not silly to be prepared. Like the people playing shuffle board on the deck of the Titanic, you can ignore it and pretend it isn't...

    Noem killing her dog...

    People most upset by this have never grew up on a farm. Part of life. Should a highly public figure put the story in a public book? No. I don't understand the point of it at all. I like dogs a lot. Had them all my life, one is sleeping at my wife's feet as I speak. That said I wont tolerate...

    Alliant Powder Availability

    Not good. That info about nitrocellulose has been in the industry circle for some time now. Local game stores were saying a couple months back that this was the chatter coming down the line from their suppliers. Guess it wasn't all talk. One thing about Democrats especially in the modern era...

    Too old.

    Had this rifle for months before I realized it was a M51. Thought it was a 50, told people it was a 50, had some early targets I had marked M50, then later on when having it apart and doing final work on it with the bedding and barrel channel I happened to actually read what's on the barrel and...

    Too old.

    I have a small family of 30-06's, didn't really set out in any way to end up like that, but in today's environment I'm very content being in that place. Lots of brass, lots of components for them. Easy to make work. And not just for me. If needed, chances of neighbors having at least one 30-06...

    Too old.

    Doesn't work. Good ole 30-06. Works across such a broad selection of bullets and powders which makes it even more valuable today IMO with prices and availability what they are. Gives you lots of options. In my opinion the following is a good example of such. Some testing I done couple weeks...

    Cheap .30cal Heavyweights

    That's a good buy on those bullets! I've gotten some things off of them. If you watch you can get some really good deals.

    Really???

    If there's gouging going on it's not the retailer in most cases. New lots of IMR powders that came in are running $65-low $70's about anywhere you look including local shops. It obviously took a big jump across the board. Why that is.........who knows the full answer. But where the retailers are...

    Enough is Enough?

    I've been keeping tabs on prices like the rest of you I imagine. Prices certainly have taken another big jump. Locally things like Varget, H4350, etc are running $50-$52. The IMR powders went crazy. $65 seems to be the norm for most of them. I haven't been buying, been using what I got. I did...

    Factory Ammo primers?

    Interesting. Certainly looks like a CCI primer to me. So either Federal is using CCI primers in their factory ammo, or else they use a different run or identifier for primers in their factory ammo than what they do as a stand alone reloading component.

    Ramshot Hunter

    Another powder that took a big jump in price, although still cheaper than others. It and BG were around $28 a lb when available here locally just fall of last yr, now it's $39. $10-$11 per lb jump.

    Enough is Enough?

    Jim, I've used a pill bottle for carrying 22 shells when using them for hunting since about as long as I can remember. Even when packed in packs like you're showing. They inevitably ended up opening up sometime during my walking for sq's or whatever, and I'd have a vest pocket full of loose...

    Enough is Enough?

    I'm still shooting using up my current supplies, but powder prices currently after another big jump are absolutely disgusting. Guess when the time comes I'll have to sell off some things I'm not using to buy more powder and keep shooting. I'm not laying out $400-$500 of my spending money for a...

    Anybody in the far North

    Glad they arrived safe and sound Lefty. I just checked the tracking # today and seen it said customer picked up package from the post office so I knew it was delivered. Hope they are a part of some successful hunts and memories in the future. (y)

    Anybody in the far North

    Yes sir. Was looking for somebody that used the 348 for hunting, and preferably for big game. You fit the bill and need bullets. Perfect fit.
