  1. Ammunition and Reloading
    I currently use for my Nosler 200 Grain JHP's (I drop them over 28.0 grains of H110). They sure pack a punch and are very fast moving, but very accurate out of a 20" lever action rossi 92 round barrel. They tend to keep a nice group of around 1-1.5" at 50 YD with the iron sights and my terrible...

    I've been squirrel hunting in Stewart State Forest the last two morning. Stewart doesn't allow non-rimfire handguns, rimfire rifles or centerfire rifles. So, I've been using my day's vintage 1940 Savage .410 hinged action single shot shotgun. I loaded these Remington #6 2 1/2 inch game loads...
  4. Ammunition and Reloading
    I have a can of Winchester 785. Powder is in perfect condition but I don't have a manual with loads for it. Anybody have an old manual with loads for 785? I'd like to use it in 303 British, 45-70, or 30-06.....
  5. Ammunition and Reloading
    I picked up a PPS a few weeks ago and am in the process of working up a target load. I was curious to know if anyone else has worked up a good medium velocity load for this specific weapon. So far the XTP's seem to feed & shoot best (O.A.L. of 1.14) , so I'm planning on using this bullet in...

  7. Ammunition and Reloading
    So how do you guys go about testing your loads? It doesn't seem logical that you would make a small batch, drive to the range, fire them, if they are not satisfactory drive back and repeat...but how do you guys do it? Luckily my first ever reloads in .308 were spot on from the Lyman recipie. No...
  8. Ammunition and Reloading
    Just recently bought two boxes of .38 special at my local walmart as they did not have any .357 there, so instead of waiting as I have no idea hows long it'll be untill they come in, and not wanting to pass up on opportunity on being able to shoot my dads .357 Marlin, I jumped on it. I've been...

    I've searched around a bit and can't find much. I'm planning on turkey hunting for the first time next month and I'm wondering what turkey loads you guys usually use? I have an 11-87 Sportsman so I'm limited to 3" rounds. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Any info about the type and how much of a certain powder anybody uses and O.AL. Or what ever...
  18. Ammunition and Reloading
    This is the first time I have loaded lead and the smoke was pretty thick inside when I ran them through the gun. I realize the lube/lead loads are going to generate more smoke than jacketed stuff. Any tips to minimize it? I am loading 200gr LSWC. I had some WST so I used it. I also have some...
  19. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    Just purchased a Taurus .44 Magnum with 6.5 inch barrel and Leupold 2X scope, I am looking for some feedback on quality hunting loads for it. The locations I intend to use it are short range option, no further than around 30 yards and largely from ground blinds. To keep the recoil down I was...
