    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Got the last of my 250g Barnes TTSX bullets loaded up after load development the other day. Now going to move on to 180g Barnes TTSX in .308 with a load I have already developed.

    Range visit- I couldn’t resist

    I had one of my no 1’s out doing some load development a few days ago, but in .375 H&H. We settled on 76.5g of Reloader 15 using a 250g Barnes TTSX, averaging around 2950fps. Should be good in case I want to take it out for elk this year.

    A Little Warm?

    75 here in NE Oregon where I am today, 66 in the central air in the house. Perfection.

    Facebook Censorship Alive and well.....

    Yeah, the weird thing is that they removed the ad from the market place but it was left up in the Facebook classified groups I posted in and I sold it to a user there. It was probably someone that reported it and a commie admin agreed.

    Of course they flagged that, it goes against the narrative. I got a 30 day ban recently for selling a gun cabinet on the marketplace. Now I have several troll accounts just in case, but it’s annoying.

    I got that found box of 235s loaded up with my old recipe using 80g of R15. I had my package show up with my big Barnes bullet order, so I got several test loads loaded up to start load development for the 250g TTSX bullets. Hopefully I can go out and give those a shot in the next couple of days.

    I love finding stuff I forgot about. Was going through my stash of bullets and I found a box of 235 grain Barnes TSX bullets, so I guess I am loading even more .375 H&H. Good thing I found that Folgers can of brass the other day. I already got a recipe for this bullet using 80g of RL15, so it’s time to get to work. Should make a good squirrel round at least.

    So I took advantage of the Barnes bullet sale at midway yesterday and got a bunch of x bullets in various calibers coming. Going to try out the 250g TTSX for the .375 H&H, and while going through stuff I found a bunch of brass, which was a nice find considering what it costs new. It came out of the tumbler looking nice. now I need to find some RL15 before the bullets arrive so I can work up some test loads for my ruger no 1

    Black widows are tough.

    Don’t even have to bother with spider killer, just hit her with WD-40 and it’s instantly over. Works on wasps too in a pinch.

    What you did for the 4th?

    Stayed home, didn’t do much.

    New hunting rifle for my (adult) son...

    Take a look at the kimber bolt action hunter. One of the lightest factory rifles I have ever picked up, and the price is not too bad either. Put a vortex viper HS 2.5-10 and for me that would be about perfect.
  13. These out to be a hit here in Eastern Oregon

    2019 Oregon draw results are in

    Thats why you do what I do and shoot them in closed roads so you can get them out whole. Packing out is never fun though. Those are just rocks on the uphill side though. Last season when we got my big bull into the truck we passed a guy on the road packing out a quarter, and we stopped to offer him a ride. He had shot a 5x6 2 days prior and had been packing out all the pieces alone for two days. He was not having a fun time.
