re: I'm amazed at how far flashlight technology has come in my lifetime - TigerOnThe Hill
Loup, You're so right about the advances in flashlight/battery technology. :bow: And yes, I DO remember using various Maglite flashlights. There's no telling how many deer I skinned at night using a Mini Maglite. One year, my cousin and I BOTH bout each small Maglites w/o either of us realizing it....

re: Favorite exotic boots - TigerOnThe Hill
I've got only four pair of western boots so I'm not an expert by any means. My only exotic is a pair of caiman from Tecova's. OTOH, I've got a number of handgun holsters that use exotic leather, including shark, elephant and ostrich. These exotics are commonly used in handgun holsters and are not v...

The Frustrating USPS - TigerOnThe Hill
Hey guys, I realize I'm just ranting, but I've hit the end of the line on my frustrations w/ USPS and its inability to reliably make timely deliveries. It all started in June when I ordered a 22 Nosler case trimmer. After 3 weeks, it still had not been delivered. It was a hybrid shipping using UPS ...

re: Need some reloading help with weird velocities - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]The most consistent brass will be the expensive ones. Norma, Lapua, Nosler. [/quote] I really like Lapua and some of it is not really that expensive, especially given it's history of longevity. Instead of weighing brass, I measure case neck concentricity. For deer hunting brass, I cull any c...
