  1. Ah, for the bullets yeah, flat rate USPS boxes... but I have 2() 1 gallon bags of brass - mostly spent but about 100 cases are new mfr and pre-primed. End result is too much for a USPS flat rate box, and then the primed casings are in that grey area between whether they still need hazmat fees or are considered "loaded" and not supposed to be shipped USPS.....and UPS is more than USPS.... Its all headache inducing..... Right now I'm seeing prices are around $20 per hundred for decent quality brands from midway... not that anything is in stock...
  2. I havea co-worker who is reloading and saying he wants them, which is why I am trying to price it out. If he backs out I'll let you know but shipping would be a bit pricey lol
  3. Hey fellas, Cleaning out some stuff and happened upon my .45 LC reloading stuff. Was wondering if you guys might be able to give me a rough idea of value. 2 boxes of this old Hornady stuff - first is HP, second is flat nose. flat nose rounds 3 boxes speer 2 boxes Midway I forget this brand.. I'll have to pull it back out... And some newer Hornady Some of the boxes are sealed, some are open and incomplete. Honestly have no idea on value, any ideas?
  4. OK, just pulled up the stock from my order history at midway. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1006762226?pid=761001
  5. Hmmm.... I may have posted the wrong link.... Mine has the factory drop mag.... hold on...
  6. I have a choate tactical - https://www.midwayusa.com/product/2171128686 Also have the original accustock around somewhere I think.... Let me know if your interested.
  7. mostly shooting from a bench. One of those home-made range specials that have a bench on each side and narrow area in the middle for the rifle... I'll try and shift the gun a little more or start shooting from prone instead of the bench. Thanks for the tips!!!!
  8. Fair questions mike. I actually don't know the answer either. On 22s I've seen the inserts/sleeves get shot out and its one shot to the next accuracy is done..... In any case, I came here to update. I took the rifle home and cleaned it up good. Lots of scrubbing. Removed and tightened all the screws on the scope, rings, and base. Got my match grade ammo back and took it back to the range. Holy crap.... Average group size at 100 yards: 0.7 moa. best group : 0.4 moa That PPU ammo must just not like my gun, or I had a loose screw or something... Definately not changing the barrel, but I may find somewhere I can ship it out to get the barrel threaded so I can get a break on it to eat up some if that jump to the right when fired.
  9. That is an option.... I do have the original stock...
  10. They look nice but dang if they aren't pricey... I spec-ed them out to about $600. I think I can do the Shaw I am looking at for around $400 with them re-barreling my action for me.. Also, doesn't look like Cal-X does rebarreling services and I'd rather have someone do the work than buy the wrench and guages... Yeah I think i'm asking for too much. I was looking for something both LR capable (1K max) and on par weight wise with a scout rifle.... Not sure such a thing really exists....
  11. Yes I'm still kicking around I don't get here nearly as often as I should, I know... but I have a question for the LR/precision shooters here. Ive never been completely happy with my Savage 10 Precision Carbine - so i keep chaning things about it and I'm at a point where I am trying to decide between changing it more or trading it in.... So from the factory it came with a 20in unthreaded heavy contour barrel. Ive since replaced the stock with an MDT chassis (freakin awesome!) but the weight is still a monster. Last time I hit the range I was having strange flyers at short ranges. I was using cheaper ammo (Privi) but have never seen such crazy innaccuarcy before. Wondering if the barrel is shot out... I think Im around 2K but thats still pretty low.... I gave it a good cleaning and am going to be going back with fed 168 bthp that I know it likes, but I was thinking today... is it worth rebarreling. I could go with a lightweight contour, fluted, 22 or 24in barrel to eak a little more power/accuracy - get it threaded as well... I dunno if the slightly longer barrel but lighter contour would save me any weight or not... Maybe change out to a lighter scope... And then I was thinking if I'm re-barreling should I change out to 6.5..... I won't be doing anything till I get it out to test again and figure if the barrel is shot out or not.... who knows, maybe the scope is defective.... But I was curious on how much weight I could save while improving the accuracy.... Maybe fluting the bolt as well... Any thoughts/input/suggestions?
  12. NY passed a law blocking recall voting. But the city controlls the whole state and the city would vote for a fresh turd in a paper bag if it ran o the democrat line.... thts assuming there is no voter fraud which I doubt....
  13. Oh man, just found a few links I had saved for Toms I had been thinking about checking out... Yeah, I love a good Hawk! lol Going through the budget ones, the M48 - https://www.amazon.com/United-Cutlery-UC2836-Ranger-Compass/dp/B0061G5BRY/?tag=wild-tacttomah-20 and the Estwing - https://www.amazon.com/Estwing-Tomahawk-Axe-Lightweight-Construction/dp/B00AYLJE8E/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2WNY3ESC9K6WQ&dchild=1&keywords=estwing+tomahawk&qid=1596557524&s=hi&sprefix=estwing+%2Ctools%2C230&sr=1-2 both were on my short list for replacing the Sogs and kershaw that I have, but I never wore out any of them to justify trying a new one. I like the M48 looks, but the Estwing looks and should feel like a hammer, so very familiar and comfortable.... and a full tang. I'll stop spamming you, but just one last thing I do recommend watching a few vids on survival knives on youtube. While I love the Toms, a good full size knife like an Onion Rat 7 can be used as effectively if not more effectively than most of the cheaper axes for log splitting, carving, gutting, etc....The Esee/rat series go everywhere with me.
  14. It does not. At least not the ones I have. There is another SOG tomohawk that I think does. its the survival hawk. supposed to be more robust, but I think around $70 or so.
