    35 Whelen project about to kick off......finally

    Had Shilen barrel a 700 Classic short action with #3 barrel in 358 win, love it. It was squared up and glass bedded free floated. Missed what rifle you started with so here is an option if it applies. I put a B&C medalist composite stock on a 700 SPS pulled the group in about 0.5" five shots...

    Meat friendly .270 Winchester "woods load"?

    Do not over look the Remington 150 grain round nose for close in woods work. Just do not load to max velocities. The 140-150 grain PT's are perfect for modest velocities with their soft noses.

    Enduron Powder in the .270WIn.

    Remember the temps, 22 is normal for a lot of hunting but I be thoughtful and test around 70 for max pressure. I have never had any pressure signs with max listed loads at 60 and above and you have at 22 degrees. I am waiting on warm temps to shake out some 270 win loads using 140 PT's with...

    Over & Under

    Clay games are first supposed to be FUN, next they are PRACTICE for wing shooting, the last is COMPETITION, but that must be fun, since so many do that. I hunt, there fore I shoot clay games. I started skeet last December I have learn a bit and know what to expect so I am not as rushed. But its...

    Wowed by a 28 gauge.

    On a Sporting Clay's coarse I can tell no difference between my 28 and 20 gauges except the weight of the shells in my vest. Both SP3's with 26.5" barrels. Unless I need #6 shot of larger I take my 28 gauge most of the time.

    Shotshell Reloading...worth it?

    Reloading target shells for 28 gauge and the 410 is at least half price. Not so for 20 & 12 gauges. If you buy on sale and with free shipping and not just by the flat when there is a deal buy at lest ten flats.Two to five thousand shells per year is nothing if you shot clay games. if you look at...

    Over & Under

    Nothing better than two barrels and two chokes on a field or sporting gun. Than there is the cool factor and great feel of a broke open gun saddled on your shoulder (barrels forward). No brass pick up ether you will get the mechanics and the hulls will just pop into your hand. Look for free...

    Bullet Wish List 2018

    Nosler makes a lot of great bullets. The only cartridges I would like bullets for is the 35REM and 358WIN. For the 358WIN a Solid base Bonded 200 to 215 grain that will fit the SAMMI OCL. This is mainly for deer sized game because I would use the 225gr PT for any thing else. The faithful 35REM...

    What I want for 2017...........

    Any thing from 200-215 grs that will work in any standard 358 Win magazine, in a cheaper Bonded Solid Base, My main concern is performance on deer sized game with less cost. This would bump the B.C. a tad over the 200 gr bullets. The 225 grain PT will work on any thing but with a premium cost...

    Lee Collet Neck Sizer

    I use the Lee collect Neck die to load my 22 Hornet ammo. They are the thinnest brass i know of and it works great. Supper accurate less then .5" groups and brass last a long time! On my 221 & 223 rem I use Reddington type S match neck dies.

    270 WIN OCL with 140 Partitions

    I loaded some 140 BT's at 3.340" with V100 and the 140 PT's at 3.320" with H4830sc. Nosler does not state what OCL they tested at while other Manuels do. Same rifle a REM 700 270 WIN Classic Glass bedded and free floated, trigger set to 3.5 lbs. Wears a VX3 2.5-8 scope. Most accurate load was...

    270 WIN OCL with 140 Partitions

    What OCL have you had accuracy with using 140 grain PT,s with H4891sc? 3.340" is way out there and most of the OEM I have ammo is around 3.280". What is Nosler's ammo 140 OCL at? I was thinking of 3.300" and shorten them to tune for where my gun likes them. Is 2900 fps realistic in a 22"...

    I think the worst is over

    Looking forward to shooting sporting clay's when the temp is 60 F or darn near to it. My yard is starting to green up and the next week is mid to upper 50's. We will see a lot of frosty mornings but I think winter is over here in the upper mit. NO ice on the lakes, sandhills, robins, and...
