    Hornady Bullets

    So I purchased a box of Hornady 200 grain Interlocks for the 35 Whelen while in Colorado a few years back. Yesterday I opened the box to load some up. I noticed all the bullets have this tacky grease all over them! Ran some through the media vibrator for 5-minutes and that cleaned them pretty...

    30-06 130 TTSX LOADS

    I bought some Barnes 130 TTSX Bullets to tinker with then realized I'm very limited with the powders listed in the loading data and obviously none to be found to purchased. I do have IMR 4350, Hunter, RL22, and IMR 7828 SC powders on hand. Would any of these powders work? Anyone have load data...

    Action screw torque settings

    Need some input here. I had my Rem 700 30-06 glass bedded, barrel free floated and pillars installed the other year. Gun has a Factory wood stock. The Smith had them torqued to 30"lbs. The POI was not so great. I then re-torqued them to 35" lbs, seemed to shoot better. When I referenced my notes...

    Lube case necks before bullet seating?

    I apply imperial dry neck lube to the cases prior to FL resizing, place them in the media vibrator, then wipe them clean. Is it necessary to apply the dry neck lube again prior to bullet seating? Its something I've never done before. Thanks, Don

    Removing live primers

    What is the best method to remove unwanted live primers? I recently pulled some 300 RUM loads apart. I want to reuse the casings but not the primers. I could fire them using the gun but thought I saw some past postings about using the resizing die to remove them. Thanks in advance for your...

    300 RUM Loads

    Can anyone share their experience and load data using the Nosler 190 ABLR bullet? My Nephew uses this bullet in his 300 Win Mag and swears by it. My rifle is a 700 BDL with a 26" barrel that is ported. I will add this, I'm intending to go for Elk in Colorado this year and just wanted a higher...

    Shooting in 35 Whelen with new scope

    Red Laser Bore Sighter

    I cannot find one of these specific to the 35 Whelen. So, I'm posing maybe a dumb question to the Nosler Forum Members. Can I use a 30-06 Laser Bore Sighter in the 35 Whelen possibly? Thanks, Don

    Burris scope

    Just bought a Burris Fullfield E1 3 X 9 X 50 scope for the 35 Whelen. We'll see how it works out soon. It's replacing an older Bushnell that isn't so good in dim light conditions. Don

Considering the choices of other brass manufacturers which one did you go with and what are some of your opinions and experiences? I've always used Remington brass but see the pricing is up and availability is...

    Not happy with 2018 Deer Season

    This particular Deer Season has been very different for me. To start off 2018 here in Tennessee had done nothing but RAIN it seems at least 4-days per week, continuing that pattern into the hunting season with windy conditions. Secondly I'm a member of a 1400 acre hunting lease that has NO...

    My season starts tomorrow. 8) I haven't seen the quality buck on my cams, as in years past, this year. Also noticed there are not any acorns this year either for some reason. We normally have a bumper crop in our area. The rut seems to be running late here as well. Just starting to see scrapes...

    My 30-06 at the Smith

    My 30-06 is a Rem 700 BDL, I've had for a long time. About 6-yrs. ago I had it re-blued in a flat black no glare type bluing as it was showing its age. I was able to get a take off REM 700 BDL 7MM stock off the classifieds on this site about 4-yrs ago. I just swapped out the stocks and made due...
