Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Gun show yesterday.

Yep. That was the one.

That is a neat show. Truth be told, I like all gunshows as it gets me around guns, but the MVC show is probably the best.

Re: Gun show yesterday.

Went to a gun show here in Kansas City yesterday. it was great to finally see a gun show with a LOT of guns. Hector If you were at the Expocenter near the airport, it was the Missouri Valley Collectors annual show. It's different from other shows because it's a club event. I did not go as I was out...

Nice rifle!

I've often thought of landing a T-53. Fireballs make for shooting fun.

Re: Gun Shows: When Did Our World Go Nuts?

FamilyFirearms, what's the future for gunshows? My own experience from the couple I've been to recently: some good deals and some bad. The days of crates of $100 surplus long gone, and that's probably the biggest difference in the shows today than a few years ago for me. Milsurps tend to "here and t...

Re: Whoops shot the wrong thing lol

I my experience about 95% of hunters are very careful but that 5% are dangerous I hunt 20 feet up in a tree lol This is my experience. Hunters have to have a hunter safety course, but other shooters do not. Also, hunters wear blaze orange in many instances, often by law. In my experience, the sorts...

Re: So far good! This newbie still has his fingers

The bedding required on a Model 111 is illustrated on youtube somewhere and it is shown that it is important to bend the rear action screw as well as the forward receiver/barrel. If yours has the cheaply made synthetic stock, as does mine, it is a bit tricky but it can be done and is effective. Goo...

Re: So far good! This newbie still has his fingers

Vertical stringing is almost always action screws too tight,or wood touching the barrel. It's a Savage 111 and read a while back on savageshooters that they can be particularly picky about the action screws. I I did a free float a while back as the very front of the stock was touching, but it did n...

So far good! This newbie still has his fingers

I tried my hand loads for the first time yesterday afternoon and am still intact. I'm new to reloading and am using the classic Lee Loaders. I had a solid group with my 22-250 and, although my 30-06 is stringing vertically, (a preexistent issue I have to correct) the round column wasn't much more th...

Re: IMR-7383...don't overlook this powder

Thanks for the insight on this, Rapidrob. As I progress in reloading, I'll be trying some different powders. I shoot all the calibers you list, so this one sounds like it would be versatile.

Edt: I should rephrase this to say that all of the calibers I shoot are on the list.

Re: Got a nice model 94 (post 64) at the show and making plans

Update: I ran out of daylight before I could complete my zeroing, but the gun appears to shoot well, at least with Remington Core Lokts. I'll complete the zero, and try some other ammo. Hornday Leverevolution also showed promise. I can see why people love their winchesters. This gun handles like a d...

Re: Got a nice model 94 (post 64) at the show and making plans

Do give the scope to your friend --the Marlin wears a scope better than a M94. I agree, and I have a scoped 30-06 as well, so I'm good for that. Definitely a Lyman or Marbles-type aperture sight! These certainly have their appeal. People sometime caution you away from them because they got whacked....

Got a nice model 94 (post 64) at the show and making plans

Hit a gun show Saturday and spotted a winchester model 94 (made in 1969) in excellent exterior condition, a mint bore, and a 1960s Bushnell scope and Weaver side mount and rings for $325 plus tax. The guys behind the tables thought I'd scored very well on this one. My research of auctions showed peo...

Re: new surplus and ammo .

I see a coming decline,maybe even a collapse in prices. Tastes are changing and old milsurps are not as "in" for the younger crowd. That means less buyers and less demand and lowered prices.
