Great fit and plenty of eye relief too.  Sighted gun  in using 300 gr JHP and 3031 for an estimated 1800fps (not chronoed) Un…[Read more]

    I am at the age I need to scope my new Remlin 1895. The gun looks pretty good but still setting things up for deer season. My thought is to put a small scope like the VX 2 Leupold 1x4x20 using a Talley lo mount I have on hand. Don’t find much info on scoping the 4570. Anyone know if this setup will give me enough room for decent eyfish4570e relief. a

    Add enough of whatever tin you can get to make it equal to the antimony content.
    Cast your bullets slightly frosty and water drop them.

    Crocs I too have had a few puncture wounds while wearing them. Had a piece of wire from a 4″ mini grinder cup type brush poke thru mine….wondering what the soreness in my foot was and it turned out to be a single bristle poking a nice hole. Just enough to tick me off and no infection. My most recent was a sharp stick stabbing me….a…[Read more]

  • Yesterday I smelted two 20# propane pots full to the top of range (pistol) bullets. My yield was way down since my last time doing this. The quantity of jacketed and plated bullets has cut the yield down alot (maybe 40%). Have lots of jackets to clean and sort out from the dross and skimmings and see if scrapping is worth time and bother. I will…[Read more]

    Dad’s old rifle ‘neith my arm still looked the same old way.

    Reminded me of when I was young, and the fun that we once had,

    walking through the woods together, the “old man” and this lad.
