Re: Vintage Barrel relining deux...

Not for relining, but perhaps a 2nd choice is reboring - http://www.35caliber.com/8.html.

Re: SK Flatnose ammo

Ken:
I believe you are correct. They shot much better from a 24" barrel - not good enough to cover their cost, but better than a 5" barrel.

Re: Marlin 39A w/scope

Before I put this on Gun Broker I wanted to give the silhouette shooters a chance at it. This weekend, 9/9, I will be shooting the monthly match in Austin and I will attend the Regional Matches in Edmond OK on 9/14,15 & 16. After Oklahoma it goes on Gun Broker and will have shipping charges. For sa...

Re: SK Flatnose ammo

Revisited SK Flatnose this weekend with a handgun. The Nelson .22 conversion for 1911 has a match chamber, red-dot optics and the Kimber has an excellent trigger. Unfortunately the Flatnose ammo didn't perform as well as Norma Tac22 . Indoor range, 25 yards, offhand. Flatnose groups were apx 3" wide...

3031 or Varget

Time to buy powder. My 30-30 has been fed 3031 most of its life. But the LGS has Varget in stock.
I understand they are similar, but it there an advantage to Varget?

25-20 and the 60gr bullet

Time to develop a load for the 60gr bullet. I was happy with 7.2 of LilGun and the 75gr Speer bullet. But I can see the end of my bullet supply and want to develop a new load.
