  1. I reload primarily for WWII military rifles of various nations, so I eat up large rifle primers. Pistol rimers haven't been an issue to get for some reason and I've seen small rifle primers available but 223 isn't tough to come by. 209 primers come and go but my only use is muzzleloading. But Large rifle primers are in the ether so I would feel more comfort if I knew they exist. My go to powders: IMR 4064, 4895 and 3031 but I have dabbled in others.
  2. My kingdom for LR primers
  3. From a design aspect I see a lot of faults and compromises. The center hub puts a lot of strain on the plastic spokes. Chair isn't designed for human anatomy. It would need to more "S" shaped for back comfort. There's little or no adjustability. Entire system lacks any ergonomics which if you do plan to sit for hours becomes very important.
  4. As a young teen my dad would volunteer me at times out to a good friend of his that had a dairy farm. It was very hard work as the farm was understaffed and my main working partner was his son "Tool". (Never was there a better nickname) So after a hard day's work there was absolutely nothing to do. At night the only TV was occupied with Heehaw and such and I wasn't a fan. My dad was a WWII vet and a Battle of the Bulge participant. He didn't want guns in the house even though his father provided food with them. The one thing Tool was good at was shooting and he taught me to shoot a 22. Our nightly ritual was to go down to the corn crib and shoot rats. I likely owe all my shooting ability to this practice.
  5. How about the breakfast at all the diners that would open early. And the stories at night and many of the same home cooked diners for dinner. Zero ATVs used but an orange army (Sometimes Red mixed in)
  6. Knehrke, thx That does look to be a good resource. Recently the electric company had the tree service clear cut anything even remotely near the utility poles on my property. I've done a lot of DEC trees in past but do now plan to do more for my Ruffle Grouse and such in these barren areas. Daughter is to inherit property so my management of it will be part of legacy. I'm already one freaking expert on land clearing as far as saplings and things getting rid of evasive species. I rebuilt and slightly modified an antique Jari sickle bar cutter that I was also able to find all new cutter for. It's my "Path of Mass Destruction" Anything two inches or smaller disappears. It's downright fun and makes me feel like I should put fuzzy dice on it. I also have a commercial weed whacker with a carbide saw head that is dangerous but helpful. Ever see Fargo?
  7. I have 30 acres on a mountain top that adjoins my buddy's 20 acres. His includes about 4 acres (being his share) of abandoned farmland that mixed grasses. The soil is all rock and clay. Absolute crap. Digging a foot requires dynamite Granger, NY near Swain One thing that concerns me is the use of Glyphosate. I know they all say it's safe and breaks down into inert materials. I also had for 36 years in my job title Environmental Engineer. I can't tell you how many times I've heard "It's Safe". And years later........maybe not So whenever possible I try to follow "Living better without chemistry in my food chain". And when I do use chemicals for anything, they are the safest for the purpose that work. I always read the SDS as a matter of professional training. Would a large tarp, (and I mean really large) be a good way to clear an experimental plot to see what we can grow? I'm not talking acres but more a large garden plot. I do have a 35 HP tractor and access to a drag as well as brush mower.
  8. I guess the real answer is what is the expected range of shot. It would be a miracle to get a shot over a hundred yards on my property. I zero at 60 yards.
  9. I get grouse on my property. Pretty sure it would be impossible to hunt them without a dog. They pretty much wait for you to step on them and then pop up. Half the time they fly right at you. The DEC nursery program has a "Grouse Packet" of various trees and shrubs you can plant to attract grouse.
  10. I have them a have nothing bad to say about them. I'm betting you'll be happy
  11. I wouldn't do it. One of deer's best senses is smell. Even the most efficient propane heater will give off combustion byproducts. You might be a dead giveaway on ground. Handwarmers in socks, gloves and even hat. Layer up but don't sweat when walking in.
  12. First hunting in the 70's for the first days of SZ crossbow. Then it was days of only seeing doe and few of them as it be. Finally, today I see a lot more movement. Around 10:30 this guy comes trotting by at 35 yards. Double lung shot. He only went 30 yards.
  13. Buddy got one in mail for 9P. He had one last year and was only going for preference point. Crap, the year they didn't require preference points for 9P, I had three of them. What a money scam preference points are.
  14. Ever bother to take a read of the Safe Act? It has to be one of the poorest written documents ever. It is loaded with ambiguity and can be vague. For instance, what's your definition of ammo feeding device? Does a stripper clip qualify or is this only intended to apply to a magazine? Where does a Garand clip fit in, and show be how to load only five. Keep in mind that the Safe Act was largely a cut and paste of other States' laws that was edited into a document by people unfamiliar with firearms.
  15. My stand is six miles from Swain ski mountain. This area has been in the drought zone forever, yet their corn is still fabulous as it is year after year. I know exactly where the field is, and I know it is not irrigated so I'm not sure how they are pulling it off. And it makes no difference on time of season as far as taste for the local corn as far as I can see. Only exception is late in season the worms start getting to it. I've got many ways to cook corn. Nothing wrong with doing them on the grill. Some soak before, some don't. Some snip silk end before. Wrapped in foil with husk and buried in coals is camping favorite My "never fail" for stovetop is add three TBSP of lemon juice and three sugar to a pot of water. When the water is a rolling boil then add skinned corn for three minutes. I'm at a high attitude so YMMV for time. Never a tough skin
