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: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Scan.BMP.jpg For years I had been wondering just where this was. There was no indication in the road map. One day I looked in the rear view mirror and there it was – just down the road a piece. I had been ‘coming’ from that direction all of the time. We would be leaving Phoenix in the morning in co...

I like this------Someone told him that he needed a drop tube...he will make a long ‘drop tube’...the longer one should make things more better than a shorter drop tube. Now he has a sense of humor.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

In passing, I just came across this. I don’t know how it was decided as 9th. But our property borders the National Forest just 100 yards behind our house. It isn’t everyone that has a 500,000 acre back yard. https://www.outsideonline.com/2006426/a ... towns-2015

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

DSC_0023.JPG This is strictly for what it’s worth...for those that may like to make some ‘good’ black powder. As far as I am concerned most do not. They are making it without forethought in what they are trying to do. They usually just follow someone’s instruction of someone that is acting also wit...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I have had ‘Zero’ military marksmanship training, but I have my ideas of marksmanship, based on my country kid shooting experience. I would like to talk to a real military sniper that has gone through the military modern sniper training. I did have some what may be called ‘military shooting training...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

https://www.quora.com/Why-do-snipers-use-fixed-instead-of-variable-zoom-scopes This is why I always thought that fixed power scopes were better. You practice with one power and can more quickly make that better shot, I think. And, there can be eight or more pieces of glass in a variable power scope ...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I just saw on another forum where a guy claimed to have shot a .1212 inch 5 shot 100 yard group. I would say that he has gotten his reloading repeatability routine down pretty well. I would just like to watch him do some reloading.

SPELL-CHECK ???

I have ‘clicked’ every icon and possible place that I can...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

COLD SHOT - Here is something that I have always thought of but have never really been at one place long enough to get into, and that is when having a club shoot, start out with ‘A cold shot’ contest – the first shot.... Maybe with each that desired to, put so much in a pot, and the closest to the ’...

Under OTHER'S..... The other day during a rain squall my wife said, “Oh good, now I don’t have to water my plants.” This reminded me of a time when we lived outside of Honolulu and I saw in the local newspaper in an article by the editor...”We have gotten tired of answering this question so we will ...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I can tell you why there can be so much discrepancy and miss information on the purchase prices that are paid for military equipment. After I got out of the Air Force, I went to work for Douglas Aircraft at their El Segundo plant just south of the Los Angeles airport and they were making AD’s, A3D’s...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Not worth all that much......Some where along the line or maybe every where along the line, one has to just accept what others may have to say about certain things such as rifle powders. It is usually hard to pin down a manufacture of their products with particular aspects. So...what is one to do......

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

These are just some of my thoughts on accuracy. I have over the years thought of doing something like this – just thought of. It is now too late for me to even consider doing anything like this. Buy 500 cases of something with a low shoulder angle of the same lot. Buy enough powder of the same lot t...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Here I am 84 and have been seriously reloading since I was about 27 and just this morning I realized where one of the areas that I have been going wrong in and overlooking is in the holding pressure of the case neck on the bullet. During this time I knew that this should be something to be aware of,...
