  1. I finally found a new hunting load for my trusty. 30-06 using 168gr TTSX. I have two unopened boxes of 30 cal (.308) 165 TSX-BT (50/box) that I won't be using. Would like to trade for two boxes of unopened 30 cal168gr TTSX, but would sell them for $30/box +shipping. In Flagstaff.

    Thank you, sir! Greatly appreciated and I will pass it along!

    30-30 NonLead Loads

    My friend is far from a leftist. He's quite the opposite, actually. He simply believes in the performance of Barnes bullets based on other rifles he has, understands the conservation benefit, and wants to load his rifle with them. I have no desire to turn this political, so lets all just keep this about the requested information, please.

    30-30 NonLead Loads

    Thanks! To be clear to pass on to my friend, that's the Barnes 150 gr TSX FN, correct?

    Veteran POW

    My great uncle was a bomber pilot in WWII. He was shot down and spent nine months in a German POW camp in Holland. He was fed a tulip bulb every day for food and given a cup of tea with it. He went home after his release, but answered the call again in Korea. I didn't learn the whe story until after he passed. If all my grandma's brothers and sisters (12 total), he was my favorite. So dang funny and humble.

    Electrician in Munds Park?

    If you don't think you can do it yourself, try Goodman Electric in Flagstaff. Our TKD Master's son works there and he's a stand up guy with a great work ethic.

    FS: 25-06 Reloading Setup

    Updated. I had a moment of weakness after a jerk at my house followed by a compelling, friendly pm from a guy here. I sold the unfired Winchester brass separately. Die, Hornady modified case, 1x-4-5x fired Win & Rem brass, bullets, and VOR-TX ammo still available. Price drop = $60 for package deal + shipping.

    You should pay me $20 since this is the only way I ever hear from you!

    FS: 25-06 Reloading Setup

    I finally figured out I'm not going to be loading for my BIL in Texas anymore, so I'm clearing out all of my .25-06 stuff. Not looking to recoup much of my investment and want to help someone out. I don't want to split it up because that's too much math for me. I'll ship it, but buyer pays shipping. In Flagstaff and not sure when I'll be in the valley. Asking $60 for everything, but will consider fair offers. Also cross posted and going in tomorrow's (8/10) yard sale. If you're in Flag and interested, stop by (Univ Hts). One bag of 20 pcs of Winchester brass is a mixed bag of 4-5x fired that has some decapped, fully prepped, and some annealed, and some that need annealed and prepped. One bag of Win brass is 1x fired and needs decapped, resized, and prepped. Three boxes of Rem brass (found 3rd box after pic taken) are 2x fired and missing ~5 total pcs. Need resized and prepped. Box of Hornady 100 gr BTSP bullets is about 3/4 full. Barnes 100gr TTSX is about 1/2 full. Barnes 100 gr TSX has 5 bullets. RCBS die just came back from factory after having a stuck case. Hornady modified case in die box. Barnes VOR-TX 100 gr has three fired rounds and 17 unfired rds.

    I had to read that twice. ON...get you ON!! My bad.
  11. A hometown friend called me yesterday asking about load data for either Barnes TSX-FN or Hornady MonoFlex bullets in his Marlin 336. He's going to be hunting the thick brush of northern Minnesota, so he wants to find a good load for either of these bullets. He told me he's had poor luck with 175 gr bullets of other manufacturers, but he really wants to use non-lead. I don't load for the 30-30, and I've given him all of the advice I can, with regards to looking in Barnes' manual and online data. Hornady doesn't have online data for any of their loads and my manual at home doesn't include data for the 140gr MonoFlex bullet. I've also given him the information on Hornady's two lines of loaded ammunition that has the 140gr MonoFlex and Barnes' VOR-TX with the 150 gr TSX-FN. I figured someone here has worked up loads for either of these two bullets (all he is interested in) and can offer some insight that I can pass along. Thanks!

    Museum Fire

    The southwest winds have been pushing most of the smoke away from town proper. The Doney Park/Timberline area has been getting hit pretty hard with smoke. It laid down nicely over the northern part of town overnight, last night. There was a cool inversion layer as I was driving to work this morning.

  15. Just now seeing this. Talk to Randy Lawson over at Harry Lawson Custom Rifles. When I lived in Tucson, he did quite a bit of work for me. I didn't have any repairs, but I can't think why he couldn't do it. Randy is a great guy and does great work.
