Re: Larger bore Wheelgun

The 44mag is a great round and plenty for deer. It is about as much gun as I car to shoot without a ported barrel or muzzle break. Unless you are going to bear or elk hunt more gun is just a waste. If you are going big to just have a big gun then it's pretty much the 460 or 500 for double action. If...

Re: AR builders, chime in please

I wuldn't bother with an adjustable GB for 300BO. You could try an Gemtec BCG with the switch. But even these are not needed for 300BO. It will be a little over gassed with super sonic loads but not much. I like the Gemtec BCG for 223. That gets pretty gassy without it. Also you get what you pay for...

Re: Tracer rounds...

I would personally not recommend tracers. You don't want to be that guy that starts a forest fire because you saved a few bucks on ammo. Ammo is so cheap right now it is crazy.

Re: Do you compensate for bullet setback in your reloads?

You do not want a heavy crimp on a rimless cartridge. I check chimp by pushing on a loaded round. If I can lean on it and it does not set back I call it good. I have found lead vs plated vs copper jacketed vs brass jacketed all require slightly different crimp settings. You may also be seated too lo...

Re: 6.8 Spc

Watch those prices, even at the deep discounts you can get stuff cheaper online. I don't follow 6.8 prices though. They had a similar deal on 17HMR. I think it was $14 a box and after the discount it was around $10 a box. I just bought 2,000 online for $8.50 a box with free shipping. Most anything ...

Re: OK, time to get one

Lots of good advise above.

I would also add. Do a lot of research before you buy. A lot of the big name companies turn out some pretty lame suppressors. If you are spending the money get one you will enjoy.

Re: Scope for Ruger Precision Rifle? (Not my Nikon?)

Have a brand spankin' new RPR in 6.5 and am thinking about what it deserves for glass. I have a Nikon Monarch 4-16, but am thinking it should have something that goes out to take full advantage of this caliber. The Nikon has the BDC circles, which I'm not fond of. Should I just be content with the ...

Re: shells for a benelli m1

My M1 will reliably cycle 2 3/4 DrEq 1 1/8 oz loads. I don't think it will cycle low recoil buck shot but will cycle standard buck shot for sure. I shoot Rio buck shot.

Re: Is .357 Magnum the most versatile modern caliber?

Coonan, Desert Eagle, LAR Grizzly. Two 357 mag pistols are still in current production, both MN companies. Just saying there was more than 1 pistol designed for 357mag. I'm probably missing a couple too. But yeah the rim does limit it. Also in response to the BFR post. Yest they will do bottle neck,...

Re: Is .357 Magnum the most versatile modern caliber?

If you include hunting I would say the 44mag is more versatile. I have deer hunted with a 357 and 44. The 44 is much better suited for hunting. If I were to have just one revolver it would be a 44. You can load them down so they don't kick at all or load them up for deer, bear or larger game.
