Western those German Shedders have a bad habbit of doing that. I have had dogs all my 70 plus years and had bonded with a lot of them but when we lost Ranger a year and a half ago it left a hole that has not healed [Linked Image]

Here is hoping Bella is around for a long time!

Re: 1 TEXAS Rifle Caliber? tgltexas 12 minutes ago
308 Win is my favorite, but I also like the 7mm-08, .243, and .223 (with a 75-grain bullet). I guess I like the short actions because they're easier to mount scopes on (with the proper eye relief) and you can make quick follow-up shots with a bolt action.

But ultimately it comes down to whatever you're the most comfortable and capable with. And it also helps when it's easier to find ammo.

It helps us too as we have freerange red deer and like to hunt their rut pretty hard specifically in October. If I whitetail shows up in that timeframe we can take it out too vs waiting til November.

You are absolutely right.
When you can start culling that early before there is any chance of them breeding it HELPS.

Also, in years like this one where we haven't yet come close to killing what we need to kill we still have 1 month left to do it.

There are no disadvantages to it that I can see at all and is yet another great tool for ranches that want to serious manage their herd for the betterment of it.

I love sitting around enjoying a cold one wild tending a fire all day just as much as anyone but that’s not always feasible.

99% is also subjective. I don`t believe that 1% of the smokers can disagree and argue this much every time this subject comes up. LOL chicken

Re: Walmart Hunting Clearance tgltexas 21 minutes ago
Although I love the store, I never seem to find anything decent in my size at Academy. It seems like unless you're super small or super huge, they never have anything in stock. I'll have to swing by the local Walmart to see if I can find any good deals.

Re: Primer ?? ChadTRG42 24 minutes ago

Yes. You will need to back the load down some to accommodate the hotter magnum primer. Also, some pistols can have difficulty igniting the magnum primers. My Taurus 357 revolver needs a standard primer since it does not ignite 100% on the magnum primers.

Curiosity question... What are the differences between Sm pistol vs Sm rifle and Lg pistol vs Lg rifle primers? Although they shouldn't be interchanged, can they safely?

Small pistol and small rifle are identical in size and shape. The small rifle primers are hotter and generally have a thicker cup. In theory, yes, you can interchange them. But it depends on what powders you are running. I would not use a small pistol primer when trying to ignite a slower burning powder. You can easily induce hang fires. And vice versa, if using a small rifle in small pistol application, you will need to back the load down and you can have issues with ignition with the thicker cup.

Large Pistol and Large Rifle have the same diameter, but large pistol primers are .120" tall and large rifle are .128" tall. You can NOT interchange these, and large rifle can not be used in large pistol and vice versa.

I have virtually the same suppressed setup with thermal on a Ruger Ranch rifle in 300 BLK. I haven't used it very long, and only shot a few hogs with it so far. I've been shooting the subsonic Nosler 220 grain Custom Competition HPBTs, and they sure seem to thump 'em hard.

New Tools BoomStick 42 minutes ago
I have been reloading for a while, I use a single stage press and typically make small batches of ammo. As I have gotten older, I have noticed my hands don't like certain task anymore, lol.

I recently purchased a Lyman Case prep center. Man does this thing make a difference. Saves so much time prepping cases. I think its freaking sweet

[Linked Image]

Probably the worse now is priming my cases. I was using the older Lee autoprime hand primer. Overtime its has gotten where it won't completely set the primers and was a pain in the arse. I purchased this Lee Auto Bench priming tool. Got it yesterday and set it up on my bench. It works great. hardly any pressure needed to prime the casing. I primed 400 cases in less than 20mins. I will say that the primers can be finicky feeding but not hard to fix as you go. It has been great thus far. Safety concern according to the documents though, is to do a single primer at a time when using Federal primers due the potential of setting one off and detonating the entire tray of primers.

Re: Flooded field project CSD 49 minutes ago
I've looked at renting a dozer but just can't justify it yet. Mainly due to frequency of working on it. When it's wet I would probably bury a dozer. Maybe this summer when its drier but in mean time I'm pretty proficient with tractor. I would really like to find a small case dozer to buy, but in today's market you can't find them and when you do they want a mint.

Once I get it setup i will see about the need for a well. I'm sure there will be years that it would be useful but it is amazing the amount of water that runs through that ditch to the creek. Everything of the east side of the hill my barndo is on goes through that ditch.

Yep. I use Hornady in my kids 6.5Grendel and I have 5-6 loads on some of them. Semi-autos may be harder on brass but I don't think the neck is affected any different, maybe I'm wrong. Regardless, anneal and go back to whatever you were before.

Re: Pistol Brace Ban BoomStick 1 hour ago
Without getting into the NFA rules and all the other malarkey going on in this thread.......
here is my concern, referencing a bloggers post from the ShotShow when the ATF drafted this new rule and the exceptions given.
1) the ATF stated they will essentially give everyone a free tax stamp for the SBR, okay cool!
However, according to this blogger, the FBI told the ATF to stick it and will no longer perform the back ground checks. So no the ATF will have to do said back ground checks.
Apparently, they have 88days to complete background check or the application gets automatically denied. So no SBR Tax Stamp.
2) with millions of tax stamp apps being submitted, this seems like many will get denied due to background checks not being performed in less than 88days.
So you gave your information, address, gun serial number and pictures proving you have a brace to the ATF. Now they deny your tax stamp.
So do they enforce on you for an illegal NFA item? Why would they not. You just proved everything they need to create a case against you!

I will not be submitting for a free tax stamp. I will reconfigure my guns until the dust settles from this.
