The 38-55 is probably the most ideal round. But finding one under $1500 is impossible.
You might be able to make one for less. Maybe. Reboring a .30-30 for $250.

I prefer heavier, bullets than the .30-30. Less recoil when slowed down. .38-55 can't be beat, if you ask me. .30-30s are too much recoil.

Re: Spirit level front sights for lever actions

there is only one way to settle this in your mind. Take your rifle and temporarily rig up some sort of level system for it or mount a scope with crosshairs that can be precisely canted relative to the target frame. Then shoot a few groups with the rifle as near perfectly vertical as possible and the...

Re: Spirit level front sights for lever actions

The level will not obscure the target. That wouldn't make any sense for any shooting game. It might be a bit of a distraction however. I use a level on my BPCR, as to 95% of all BPCR shooters. But when it come to shooting chickens offhand at 200 meters, I ignore it. My offhand "natural position" is ...

Re: BPTR NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP !!CANCELLED!!

Fifteen. Yes, it was immediately prior to BPCR Iron, hoping to get some crossover. Historically there were less than a dozen cross over from silhouette to creedmoor. What may have generated more cross over in the severely shortened format of this "bptr nationals" would of been a midrange prone matc...

Re: The Near Impossible has been done.

Here I thought it this was going to be a thread about how someone found the link to the registration for this year's Nationals and posted it.

Instead it is about something "easy" like shooting a clean card...


Congratulations, John! That is impressive.

28 gr. of IMR 4895 with a Hunters Supply 260 gr. flat point. Big Medicine. :-bd
Do you have any idea of what your velocity is with that load? Just curious how it compares to my load of 19.2 gr of 4198, which I don't really have velocity for anyway but could find one.

Re: 38-55 loads

19.2 gr 4198 and 250 gr Lyman FN. Takes down everything every time (including pronghorns), but a pretty mild load.

Marbles Tang sight
Lyman Tang sight

Do all of you shoot the same sights on all of your rifles? I don't so I didn't bother to complete the poll.
