Take a head shot ...

Just take a head shot if you think it necessary. Any caliber should work just fine.

WD-40 on the outside of guns...

I do not remember when WD-40 first came out. I have sprayed down the outside of my rifles and shotguns with it for years and never had a problem with it. I very seldom will take a gun apart and the...

A very high pressure cartridge.

This is a very high pressure cartridge. About 50,000 which puts it into a rifle cartridge category. You will not be able to make very small handguns for it like the Kel-Tec P-32 as you will need...

Here is how you can convert the temperature readings

(32F − 32) 5/9 = 0C
(0C 9/5) + 32 = 32F

For me, and everyone I grew up with, we only know Fahrenheit. And 36-24-36 seems attractive but not so much in metrics.

New or used Leupold...

Get a good new or used Leupold. American made with a life time warranty to anyone , no need to be the original buyer. Something around a 4-14 x A.O. should serve you very well. I like mil dots.

Why not try this at home ?

Difficult to compare subjective feelings

It is difficult to compare the two guns as to how you feel about them. After comparing the physical aspects, like weight, length of pull, drop etc., you are left with only the subjective feeling...

Good to have multiple guns to take available ammo.

It is good to have a gun in every gauge and caliber so that what ever is available you can still be shooting. I certainly don't have that, but do recognize the value in it.

Market demand matters a lot. Take the time to let them know you do not want cross bolt safeties in the rifles. I would not buy one and will pay the premium price for an older one without the...

Some steels differ in resistance to rusting. I have an old pizza pan that we use a lot for things in the oven. If it isn't dried and wiped down with oil right away, it rusts. Bad enough I...

Leave one with the long barrel.

I suggest you leave the one with a long barrel alone. It gives you the opportunity to share a duck blind with friends without making too much noise in the blind. And later in your life, you might...

I was bothered by the name calling also. It seems to me that if you have an issue with someone here on RFC you should send that person a message or an email and not air it out for the public.

I guess you should shoot what ever rifle it is that you want to shoot. If you have a 50 yard indoor range, that is terrific. But what ever range you have, make use of it. Many of our indoor ranges...

Hi All,

I am doing just fine thank you. I think I have been posting but I guess maybe like ships passing in the night, on different pages.

Best wishes for a happy and safe 2022.

Barrel harmonics exist.

Barrel harmonics exist. It does not go away with a solid rest. All the best benchrest shooters in IR 50/50 and the like are using tuners to minimize it.

Lead going down a barrel will not "bump up" if there is an area of larger diameter and if the muzzle end is of a tight constriction, it should shoot well. The problems arise when the muzzle end has...
