    Jon Boat motor

    Got an old 12-32 Aluminum jon boat, 12 ft long x 32 inch at bottom, that I picked up for free. Turns out getting title is more money and effort then it's worth, so rather then throw good money after bad, I'm considering picking up a 1436 or possible 1542 Aluminum jon boat. My plan for the...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    This evening, I ordered a Faxon 16" 300 Blk "Gunner profile" carbine gas barrel. Last week, I picked up a set of Hornady Custom grade 300 blk dies; got 1 pound of SW Blackout, primers, and a couple hundred 160gr/180gr/200gr cast lead powder coated bullets. Just got get brass; or a bunch of 223...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    I can help him with process, and my personal thoughts on equipment (other then a press that does 50bmg), but I think he would be best with a progressive for normal/small rounds, and a simple single stage on 50bmg. Not judging anyone, but, if I'm pulling the trigger on a 50; I want to be 100%...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    Got a question for reloaders, not for me, more for a friend who wants to get started; If you wanted to primarily reload 223/40s&w AND 50 BMG; what press options would you have? I know Redding and maybe a couple others have a 50BMG length press, but the dies are a large (1-1/4"?) diameter; do...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    Couple weeks ago, I loaded up a mid range load of IMR4895 and 150gr Hornady Interloks, in 308, 43.5grs. Got 1.607" at 100 yards. Normally, I would be slightly annoyed, or atleast not too happy, but being that I bought this bullet for no other reason then white tail deer, at max of 150 yards, and...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    Speaking of big bore levers, last Sunday, I went to Rural King, and stopped at gun counter. They had a Henry 45-70, 16" barrel, very nice looking gun, but... I think it was $1049, the barrel was scratched up in several areas, down to bare steel, from the metal racks they keep guns in. I did...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    Anyone have thoughts on Faxon 300 Blk barrel, 16", for Ar15? I've heard ok to good things about Faxon, but never specifically in 300 Blk. It's specifically the "Gunner Profile" with Carbine gas.

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    What's everyone's preferred 308 Win projectile for white tails? My Ruger doesn't seem to shoot great with 168/180s; so I've got some 150 Hornday Interlocks. Haven't seen much for hunting projectiles in the 150ish grain range in stock when I've made any orders. Wouldn't mind maybe some GMXs or...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    On the subject of today's trigger time; I've been messing around with 60gr Hornady Vmax in 223; and tried 24.3grs at 2.305" oal, with CCI450s; got 1.06" and 0.983" @ 100 yards. Not for anything in specific; but a fairly affordable projectile, with affordable powder; general purpose round for...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    For the guy looking for a new scope on a 22LR, Cabelas/Bass Pro has their line of scopes on sale till like June 20th. I dont need it, but I might get a 1-8x24 Cabelas Covenant AR SFP for $199. If I do, it would probably live on a lever action 22

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    I would look for an adjustable side parallax. I was surprised how bright the Vortex Vanquish 3-9×40 is, but it doesn't have the adjustable parallax. Athlon has an excellent warranty, and gives Vortex a run for the money. Not cheap crap. Take a look at Athlon Talos 3-12×40. I believe all the...

    Coil Roofing Nailers

    After action report; finished the roof. Nail gun did good, roughly 10k nails driven; did have a problem with fairly often (1 in 20ish) double firing, which was annoying. I'm happy with the Wen, and would buy it again. I used 7200 1-3/4" coil nails (Metabo) and maybe 2000-3000 1-1/4" nails...

    TODAY'S GUN TIME

    Finally saw primers back on Midway, $99/1000 for SRMPs. Ended up ordering them with some misc other small stuff. Its funny, they went away, back when the craziness started, then seemed to come back for a month or two, then went away again. Not thrilled with the price, but happy to seem them in...
