re: I'm building a bolt action rifle ** New range report good grouping - TigerOnThe Hill
I always like it when I have to do some math (measure outside to outside and subtract bullet diameter) to get the group size as it means it's a small group! :bow: Tha's some good shooting. I've never used RL 16, but from looking at the load data, it looks like you should still have some room before...

re: College Football Live analyst says LSU will fall out of the top 25 - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]That was Acho. Forgot his last name, but his takes have been pretty dumb and contradictory from what I've seen so far. [/quote] I didn't see the show, but I've seen him before. Yeah, he's not really not that knowledgable across CFB. For the most part, he's like Stephen A. Smith: cover up you...

re: Revolvers with 6" barrels, are they easier to shoot accurately than the shorter barrels?? - TigerOnThe Hill
Generally speaking, most shooters can more accurately shoot a longer barreled handgun than a shorter barreled handgun, but there are always exceptions. How a gun balances and handles is another story. Keep us updated w/ how things turn out for you. :cool:...

re: reloading question.....fire forming brass - TigerOnThe Hill
I've fire formed a lot of brass through the years, mostly for the T/C Contender platform. Nothing against fire forming, but I think I've probably done enough for my lifetime. :lol: I've generally used the traditional "bullet" method. 1. Use virgin brass. 2. Full length resize brass. 3. Use a nea...

re: started reloading...could go one of two ways - TigerOnThe Hill
Duckhammer, Glad to hear your going to start reloading! Handloading has been an ejoyable and satisfying hobby for me for >35 years. Like guns, you'll find all handloaders are partial to their own particular equipment and that's understandable; heck, I'm the same way. Some will say Lee tools ...

re: Concealed carry question when pulled over by cop. - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]What do you say?[/quote] I don't say anything. I hand him my driver's license and cc license at the same time. I then answer any questions he may ask and follow his directions. The last time I got pulled over the trooper asked me to get out of the vehicle. As he approached me I gave him both...

re: Concealed carry question when pulled over by cop. - TigerOnThe Hill
I'm surprised this thread has gone on this long. Lots of different opinions here, and and that's what the vast majority of the info is .....opinions. One thing that should not be subject to opinion: do whatever is legal and required by the laws of the state you're traveling in. Having said that, her...

Interesting article on this author's [link=(https://www.wideopenspaces.com/6-superior-left-handed-rifles-deer-season-pics/)]top six left handed bolt action rifles[/link]. One should also add Savage to the list. I didn't realize that many companies made left handed bolt actions. It's outside your que...

re: .300 Whisper - TigerOnThe Hill
JD is a very interesting character. I've got 4 of his barrels (257 JDJ, 6.5 JDJ, 338 JDJ#2 and 375 JDJ) for T/C Contenders. All are surprisingly accurate. I don't have a 300 Whisper, but I do have a 300/221 and it's basically the same caliber but from a different gunsmith. It even uses 300 Whisper d...

I'm glad you survived and recovered from your snakebite. Nevertheless, some of your comments need to be corrected. [quote]The type of venomous snake is irrelevant in regards to severity. It’s how much venom is planted in you that makes the difference. [/quote] For sure, there are a number of fac...

re: Friend got bit by a copperhead - TigerOnThe Hill
The Coral Snake has a different kind of venom (it's a toxin on the nervous system) so requires a different antivenin than pit vipers. Given the rarity of Coral Snake envenomations (<100/yr US), [link=(http://www.poisoncentertampa.org/poison-topics/coral-snake-antivenom/antivenom-faq/#treatment)]ther...

re: Friend got bit by a copperhead - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I understood both of these before I asked the question, I still don’t understand why. Country Labor is cheap, someone can’t open up a snake venom place in the middle of New Mexico or Mississippi? If it’s expensive and in high demand and perishable seems like a business opportunity.

[quote]Did you see op's feet? One little bite and each foot looked seriously fricked up.[/quote] Yes, I saw the picture. Yes, it's a nasty bite. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to get bit by any kind of snake, even a non-venomous one. Having said that, copperhead bites are not normally as severe as...
