Re: smallbore lever action and smallbore silhouette at the same time?

I'm from Missoula and there are a few grumbles about the louder report, but not major. We only call one fire! command. I never come close to the limit so I don't see it as an issue. I suppose you could argue there is a benefit, but the lever guns are always done long before cease fire is called.

Re: .22LR Standard or Highspeed?

I use SK high velocity stuff. Unfortunately they don't make it anymore. It was the best of both worlds, accurate and a bit more power.

Re: spotter plate

Cathy Winstead-Severin was selling them last year at Iron Man. She has a website called https://goodshootinginc.com/ so if they aren't there, maybe contact someone there and see if they have any.

I had to miss this year too Jerry. Oh well, maybe next year! Steve runs a great show, and you can't beat the South Bend Oysters..

Re: What do you typically do, when

Hey Dave, just scoop the case into your powder, push the extra off the top with your finger (leaving it heaped would be too much!) then seat the bullet carefully. Max load my ass! ;)

i'm going to say it just so someone doesn't blow a gasket, of course I'm kidding....

Re: Another reloading question.

I use Varget powder, so the hodgdon site has an online book that has starting load data for just about everything I do.

http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/rifle

You might try there for one opinion, but you'll have to work up loads on your own anyways....

Have any of you used the V-Brite reticle in your Vortex scopes? It is a 0.4 moa dot from the factory.
Yes, that is the reticle that was in my vortex. Just never put a battery in it or turned it on, the dot was black when it was off and did just fine.

Re: What is your favorite metal polish to polish cases with?

When I tumble my brass wet with steel pins I put in a couple drops of dawn, and a squirt of lemi-shine. They come out clean and fairly shiny.

Hand polishing....geeze dave I think you may have too much time on your hands!
