Re: A Transition to Handloading and Costs

I read until you got to numbers. I don't want to know. Winchester sells lead loads in both 12 and 20 gauge that work to forty with cheap chokes. That's not the longbeards, neither, though I hear those work, too. These TSS loads are luxury items. Handloading is just another hobby. The only loading I ...

Re: Browning bps or mossberg 500?

Henry makes a nice lever action .410. I saw a story on someone using it successfully on turkeys. If you're looking at heavier guns, I wonder why not a 28 or 20 gauge.

Re: 20ga O/U POA / POI

If you're going to buy a new Browning, you might want to ask Browning how far off it'd have to be for them to correct it.

Which one comes threaded? If the BPS is the only one that comes threaded, then they're about the same price.

Re: The outlawing of male turkey decoys

There is no identifying a target by sound, because you can't aim a gun with your ears. The distinction is clear and easy. The natural reason the distinction exists is that if it didn't you'd be open to being shot in self defense by anyone you approached too closely. We don't do that anywhere at any ...

Re: Percent pellets do you lose every ten yards?

At the end of its range, a pattern can fall to pieces in five yards. Estimates are nice for planning. Shooting it is the only way to know.

That's just the usual wanting to throw someone in a cage because they don't conform to your personal view.

The difference there is I suggested a law preserving freedom, while outlawing reaping suppresses freedom.

Re: Yildiz 410 side by side

They've about stopped selling sxs altogether according the counter dude I asked. I would bet Yildiz still makes their full line. They sell to other markets than just Academy. Can you get a Yildiz in the US that was not imported through Academy?

Re: 20 gauge brass shells

The brass 3" is a bit long to carry any usual way, so I got a choke tube box. Next installment should be pattern of light load. Standard load might happen if I get my hands on the powder for it.

To hell with any more laws limiting freedom. If a grown man wants to play with dolls, that's his business. The only victim is the one who cheated himself of a fuller experience.

It was just too far. Lead #8s at 40+ with mod choke. I was breaking some, but not all. That's the trouble with tough, or long shots sometimes. You are not missing entirely.

Re: Shotgun sights

The bead shouldn't be a blur. The turkey should be the blur. Of course, that does you no good if you can't focus on the front bead. These things can change with prescriptions, but that's off topic.
