Re: Reloading

I have noticed that when targets are hit with jacketted bullets you can see nothing but powder when hit and no damage. When shot with plated or cast a dipple is left and a small flat disk can sometimes be found. Tim Lee once said it is about energy transfer. Plated or cast bullets hit like a spit ba...

Re: Henry finally did it - well sort of

It's true just checked the website. They are offering it in 3 different calibers with brass finish. It will be in 3030 ,35 rem and 3855. Suggest retail about 1000 dollars. If they made it in steel I would jump on it and buy one.

Re: Rifle for big bore lever gun

Berry. From committs from spotter they don't powder like full metal jacket or hollowpoint. Acts like a spitt ball putting energy into the target. More like a cast bullet without the leading. The 170 are serrias but am changing to speer due to cost. Oops forgot 180 are serrias changing to hornady.

Re: Rifle for big bore lever gun

The choice of 3030 is the favorite of most cla shooters. I have used a 357 mag with good results. Rams have been rung but it depends on the range you shoot at. Good rails and targets and you will knock them over. I use a 158 plated with 6 grs of titegroup on the first three. Try 180 gr with 14 grs h...

Re: Target Rules

I have found that if the pig has a solid foot all the across you will have a better chance of turning it. If the rails or pads are not level. With two pads on the feet the chances are less for turning the target. Way make the target heavier with a solid pad ? The pig could be the second heaviest tar...

I use 158 berry with 6 grs titegroup for cpt on cla and 180 Serria jsp with 14 grs h110 for rams. Depending on your...
