    Roll Crimpers..

    I dont use any lube. Was never told to use it. I think my main problem after further review, is the depth of the center boss is to high, not allowing the tool to do its job fully. IMO simple overlooked step. I have a drill press, as well as hand drill. Using the hand drill currently.

    Roll Crimpers..

    Hey All, As some of you know I Handload my own turkey shells with Tungsten shot for my 20ga. Long story short In the move to the new house I lost my BP roll crimp tool. So yesterday I went online and found some pics of some that are produced and used across the world.. But with the pictures, there wasnt any rhyme or reason for the design etc... So On my couple breaks I made 2 of my own Crimp tools based off pics and combining ideas.... both are different styles, I was just curious if anyone here could enlighten me on what one looks for when using or picking out a roll crimp tool. The one tool i made with a nice radius in the bottom began to work, but the 4 pins I pressed in across the bottom interfered, since I believe I didnt give enough "lead in" to start pushing the hull in the right direction.. before it engaged with the pins.. Tested them both out last night and they failed.. The simpler looking tool has an adjustable center boss for depth of hull to the overshot card.. Today I made one more tool identical as the one with the 4 pins except i pushed the pins in deeper into the bottom so they engage more of the radius first, to start pushing the hull the direction it needs to go... I had read that the pins(more the better) help form a better crimp easier/quicker.. Also, The original 4 pin tool, I removed the pins, deburred and will test it without the pins in to see if its not a complete waste, since the radius should have engaged earlier.. And the original simpler looking tool, I gave a radius instead of an angle back.. Since theyboth failed.. Sorry if this doesnt make sense,.. lol Kind of hard to explain. Just looking for some insight. If anyone here know and could chime in? Thanks In Advance

    Indian Creek Tubes?

    I have one on my 870, it shot good last year. Bought a youth model 870 recently and just put a a fast fire 3, and shurshot stock on it.. Hoping to find a few minutes today to put one or 2 thru it.. I shoot handloads of Tungsten through it and it holds up just fine so far..

    New property/ First food plot ever

    Congrats to you sir, Your hard work will truly pay off. Give them food, water and cover and theyll love you for it. Looks good, but for a 1/4 plot.. your brassicas may get wiped out fast.. Keep the stories and pics coming!

    2019 Lawn Thread

    Cant wait to get on the zero turn and cut it up.. Since i taught my step son how to operate it, and actually cut a lawn to make it look good. Its a fight for who cuts the lawn. Lol.
  7. The only time i go cheap on a decoy is if its a feeding style. But even then, after owning some more expensive and realistic high quality decoys. They just do not compare. I dont really use a decoy or decoys much anymore unless im hunting a field or as mentioned earlier on a rainy day. And then ill throw 3 or 4 or more deeks up. Im not a big fan of deeks, Birds are so unpredictable Id hate to hunt my pressured birds with fakes, and gamble that much on the only few days i have to pursue them. I just try to get where birds like to be, and make them come looking, Literally. Position myself to where they have to look. Make minimal calls, and scratch some leaves.. Works better than decoys do IMO I do have one of the strutter ambush style fans id like to try when i know, nobody is around.

    Check the sights on your turkey slayer

    Patterned my 535 with TSS 7s .. not too bad. If i put a bit tighter constriction tube on the end it'd do much better I think. 200+ in 10" @ 40 yrds. Thats 50% of the shot .. I have to finish putting my fast fire 3 on the youth 870 and pattern that, along with my 500 youth as well .. shooting TSS 8 handloads..

    Antler King Products

    Im not impressed with their products at all. I tried them a few years in a row.. years ago, with crap results. The brassica blends went to bolt in 4 weeks, and the clovers never did well, if they grew at all. It may have been partially my fault for not reading seed labels then, and buying them from a dept store that sold old seed. IMO its my poor choice, but thats as much of the seed companies fault as it is the Stores fault as well.. I will not support business that sells old seed, whether its been re tested or not.. Its bad business. Buy it fresh from the people who care about their product and customers. And will give you real advise, if you ever need it.. Ordering online?

    Do You Like To Team Up Or Spring Turkey Hunt Alone?

    Hunt mostly Solo now since my hunting partner is in the next life. On occasion I get a partner to hunt with. Those do make for more fun hunts, Had great success both ways. I could just call for someone from hear on out and be just as happpy if not happier.
