    Ducks! Free Ducks!

    I went a few times couldn't really call myself a duck hunter, but one of my Buds loves it, him and one of his buds went up north to one of the lakes at zero dark thirty, threw their deks out and the lake was iced up. He said after waiting for awhile in the bitter cold, his dog jumped up and started fetching the deks and gave them a look like let's get out of here!

    Barrel vs velocity?

    For whatever it's worth, some long forgotten gun writer claimed that with a .308, velocitys didn't change given different barrel lengths. At that time I had a Remington 700V with a 24 inch barrel and a Remington 788 with I think it was a 20 inch barrel. With the same load they did chronograph the same velocity.

    Barrel vs velocity?

    My guess would be closer to 50 fps per inch. How much weight do you want to lose? There are other options. Fluting the barrel, hogging out the stock, lighter bases and rings, aluminum bolt shroud

    SOLD Kimber HS .22LR Bolt Action Rifle

    Not my gun but the barrel on the first pic states Yonkers, NY USA. These are no longer made. Kimber came out with these rifles to try and grab some sales from Anschutz. When the first guns came on the market they had a premium barrel on them. Shilen from what I understand, later they made their own barrels and put on them. Lones Wigger told me that he helped design that stock for Kimber.

    Cowboy games

    My bud told me he roped a Javelina one time, he said it ran under his horse and started snapping his teeth. He said the rodeo was on. I never ask him if he did it again.

    Truck Tool Box: North Valley

    Does the weather stripping actually work or does everything get covered with dust?

    Nikons scope deals

    I have a Nikon Monarch 5, I think it's a 3-15 with a Nikoplex reticle, the glass is as good as my 2 Leupold VX-3i 4.5x14 scopes and it tracks also.

    Having a Blast with the Past

    Looks like and old leather punch, a slide caliper, a hatchet, and two pistols. The bottom one kinda looks like a Colt auto, but couldn't make out a horse on the grips.
  12. Never used it and I don't know anyone that has. By the timeline it was discontinued I would say it was before Winchester Powders was swallowed up by Hodgdon. I read something that said Winchester discontinued it because they were using all the powder in the WSM cartridges, but I don't know.
  13. The Nosler number 4 had data for the .300 Win Mag.
  14. If powder is stored properly it will last a long time. When you take the cap off and if it still has an either smell and the powder doesn't have a brown rust type dust to it, it will still be usable. I have some that I bought before 1978 and I dip into it occasionally.
  15. From what I gather Winchester discontinued it, for some reason they had trouble with their slow burning ball powders. Supposed to burn between RL-19 and RL-22, and there is supposed to be some load data for it in Nosler number 4 manual, which I have at the house and I'm at work right now. What caliber were you looking for data for?
