  1. Working up a load for a rifle is a hobby, making a couple boxes of perfect hunting ammo is a hobby. Sitting at a bench pulling a lever down and pushing it back up and filling a tube with brass and/or bullets once in a while and making 400 of the same round is the most boring mind numbing “hobby” on planet earth.

  2. Not if my time is worth anything. If you don’t have a life or consider reloading a hobby then yes. I have a Dillon 550 and can load 400rds in an hour last time I loaded 40 plinking ammo it cost me .08$ a round..08X400=32$ for 8$ an hour I’m not getting out of bed let alone “working.” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Walmart is getting rid of all of their handgun ammo. All practice aluminum and brass 9,40 and 45 are on sale for 5$ or7$ a box of 50. Just spent 900$ between 3 Walmart’s. I don’t know if I’ve ever bought 40 for 10 cents a round. I k or I can’t reload it for that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It will work fine until it doesn’t and I’ve played around with them side by side and you get much less consistency with the factory breech plug when shooting through a crono. If I remember correctly it was over 300fps difference over a 5 shot test. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Jesus jay you’re talking in circles, I just did that geometry equation you gave me and it ain’t the shoulder but you said you shoot em in the shoulder. Other than a few of us here we’ve all killed our share of deer with guns. I’ve never kept track but I’ve shot a lot of deer with a rifle and I’ve hit them from every angle and in about every spot imaginable and I’ve recovered all but 1. Not one of those deer have I ever thought of fractions or anything else just aim center mass or “the middle” and the deer will die. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Some of you guys put way more thought into shooting deer than I do. I aim for the middle, don’t worry about angle or any of that. Just aim for the middle of the biggest part and keep shooting until I can’t see them or they die. He’ll die and I’ll trim a little bloody meat off not the end of the world. If I’m shooting a rifle at a deer these days it’s my ADK buck and he’s gonna be sausage anyways. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Every bullet is devastating on shoulders, my point is he will get an exit hole with an SST. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The funny thing is you use SST’s and they are well know for being a very had bullet with limited expansion. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. The problem is when they don’t drop in sight. Guns do kill with trauma but if the deer gets out of sight and the “trauma” causes internal bleeding and it only has a .25-.30 inch entry hole to bleed from even if the deer doesn’t make it 100yds it can be very had to find. Especially if the lungs aren’t hit! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m with you 100% on the 2 holes being a necessity. For me I went to copper bullets for a few reasons but weight retention was the main one. If I did more sitting and could wait for the perfect shot I would probably have a different opinion but for my style of hunting I want to know my bullet will go end for end at any angle and the best bet for this is weight retention and controlled expansion. I use Barnes bullets but have some new copper bullets for offseason testing. I love 35 caliber bullets for the added weight and size but if I was a one gun for all my hunting guy it would be a 308 or 30-06. Shooting 150-168gn copper bullet. The 7mm-08 would be a close 2nd but It doesn’t have the end for end performance that the heavier bigger bullets do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’m guessing there’s not a lot of 230lb whitetail capes on the cape market. I really wasn’t that upset because I was on the fence about getting him mounted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. They could be the same bullet, a few years ago I couldn’t find any and called Winchester and was told they didn’t make the bullet it was made by a separate company and they were having contract issues. I’ve never shot a Nosler bullet but I’ve looked at the BY’s and they look to be the same bullet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. My 2016 230lb adk bucks cape got ruined by the Taxidermist. He was very sorry and got a new cape and did mounted it for free and I have since disassembled the mount and just have his horns. The rack wasn’t what made that buck it was his size. Those horns on a 150lb cape looked huge but that’s not why I wanted him mounted. Extreme case but I agree with Biz on this one.

  14. Before I switched to copper that was my favorite bullet, shot well in every gun I tried them in and killed critters very dead! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That looks like a winner! Even tho it has a steering wheel [emoji2961]. For a smaller boat that has plenty of dance floor for 2 guys and it will be easy to mount downriggers when you get sick of catching those lazy eyes. I’ve owned Starcrafts all my life and they’re great boats! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
