Re: Double wad loads and choke type

In using the Kyle Smith 1 oz. 20 ga. load, the pattern was far better with a ported than with a non-ported choke in one of my guns. The non-ported choke worked very well with single wad loads and is my preferred choke in all my 20's. The KS outer wad would be stripped quickly by the ported choke as ...

Re: Yildiz410

Rem has taught us all something: If the barrel is removed, the hinge pin must go in the same side or there is hell to pay. I have no idea why this is so, but having heard others correct the ftf by re-positioning the pin seems to me that it does make a difference. Has anyone measured the OD the lengt...

There was someone with an FFL on here who could legally buy one and transfer to a buyer through another ffl and be legal and it wouldn't constitute an illegal straw purchase.

Re: Gobbler Responses versus distance

The farthest I've had a bird respond was over 800 yards as measured by google earth. He shock gobbled to me and I coursed him trying to get close. It was probably the best decision I made by not calling until I was assured of the set up. When I got within 200 yards, there was knee deep water between...

Re: Yildiz410

Rem, that may explain why some folks cured ftf by slamming the barrels shut. Good to know. What we were diagnosing as weak hammer spring could have been what you report, especially if barrel was removed and reassembled. It's no easy task to take the center pin out. How do you do it? Gil

Interesting mount for the FF. Did you make it? How does the tight barrel mess with the breech opening trigger (which also cocks the hammer)? Is the metal warping? Gil

About the cheapest is the Spot; the $450 is the most highly recommended Garmin In Reach+, but the old DeLorme model has many of the same features at almost half price. If future lack of someone to repair the DeLorme is a concern, be aware that Garmin discontinues servicing some of its older products...

Ride by a street corner or a bus stop. Most of the folks will be looking down at a phone. If you let them, they can be millstones around your neck.

Re: Roll crimp Vs. Fold/star crimp? TSS

Well, this season I won't roll or press handloads. It'll be all brass in .410 and 20. I started out with a press, but it was a pia to set up for different hull lengths. Roll crimping was far easier to get right with less effort, and using a hand cranked vintage crimper yielded better results than wh...

Re: A Transition to Handloading and Costs

Your costs of set up were reasonable but you could have done without the trickler and shot dipper. A kitchen tablespoon works just fine and you can creep up on the weights easily. The funnel is a good idea. Plastic works, but in your dry climate with static electricity, the powders stick to it. Meta...

I have not been to Nashville for the show in 6 years, but went this week because I had to pick up a mount from Cally.

Re: The outlawing of male turkey decoys

I haven't relied on a decoy in decades. As much as I don't like their usage, they seem to be the entry tools of new and young hunters into the sport. New blood into the sport gives a voice to those who will stand up against the anti-hunting segment of our society. While I would hope that the new blo...

Re: Yildiz .410 pattern

Clay, didn't you have your Yildiz dipped? One of the features of these guns that I like, other than great looking walnut, is the corrosion resistant finish. Satin chrome on the barrel's outside and anodized alloy on the action. Your Bobwhite's barrel has a chrome finish as well. Gil

Re: Anyone ever experimented with leaving the csd100 wad unslit?

In reloading the 10 ga. years ago, we tried a split that divided the cup into two petals. Most of the time, it would flip and punch a hole through the patterning board as it became a lead weighted badminton shuttlecock as the payload stayed in the wad and led with the gas seal. Stick with four petal...
