    Master Bedroom Woodchucks!

    We live in the city, and the administration prohibits firearm discharge in the city.... lots of critters go around the house, including deer. I get to watch them go by.... and grind my teeth

    Cost of Reloading - Pre-Covid Vs Post Covid

    The cost of many things we purchase has gone up significantly. Reloading components have gotten much more expensive since I started reloading in the early 1970's (yes I am gray haired now and a bit older. The automobile picture to the left is one I recall new 1968 Plymouth Barracuda, and...

    Field shooting in hot, dry weather

    Having fought over 50 forest fires while going to college (put myself through that way), I am at best very cautious of anything that might cause ignition. Especially with the dry year we are having makes me more cautious. We live in Northern Utah, not far from Idaho and Bear Lake

    Remington Model Seven Custom Build

    As a former 257 Improved 40 degree shooter I am partial to that cartridge. The 7mm you are considering would be great, just my preferences showing through. Have fun, sounds like a great setup.

    Darn Non-Resident Hunters?!?

    Odd issue while loading today

    I have been reloading since 1970. I have never used the cannelure as a loading depth tool unless it just happened to coincide with what the targets and rifle told me (that is accuracy or game performance results).

    Recoil management-poor shooting

    I would suggest putting lead or similar heavy weight as part of the stock to make the rifle "heavier" assuming that is the direction you desire to go. If you do not want the rifle heavier then shoot it more with weight (aka "ballast") and bags until you master it and then start working on...
