  1. +1 on Rocket Steelheads, at least the old ones. I printed a long article on penetration testing (independent, not a rep. or mfg.) from a few years ago, and these were rated the best of both fixed and mechanicals - at least for that round of testing. No experience with them on bigger animals, but hopefully anyone who has used them on elk will weigh in and tell us how they performed.

    What's the difference between the LEO/Govt stamped mags and civilian mags of the same cap.

    Look for advice on boots

    Hanwag Alaska GTX w/ custom footbed from Lathop & Sons Boot Co. Will cost plenty. Plan on Dahlgren socks, or any similar premium sock. Only 1 pr. needed with these boots. forepaw

    Can anyone drill and tap a couple casings for me?

    Any reason the Hornady modified case won't serve? Just curious.

    Where am I?

    Pretty neat right there, thanks for posting! Looks like an artifact right out of the post - WWII building boom.

    Memorial to Tom Mix? 15 - 18 miles south of Florence?

    Ruger .357 magnum $450

    Back in the late '70s Ruger chambered that same gun for 9mm. It was called the Speed Six, and the adjustable sight version was the Security Six. I think the 9mm was in Speed Six only. It didn't use full or 1/2 moon clips as I recall, it headspaced on the case mouth. I really wanted one, unfortunately, I delayed and screwed around and I think most of them got shipped to Israel. Anyway they disappeared from the shelves and dealer displays, and I don't think I have seen one since.

    Ruger .357 magnum $450

    These are very good revolvers. They are built like a bank vault and will provide a lifetime of service. They also lend themselves to disassembly and smoothing of the action by just about anyone with decent mechanical ability. Try that with a S&W or Colt.
