    A good day grouse hunting.

    We call them mountain chickens, they taste so much better than chicken though. Their best attribute is to nearly give ya a heart attack when they finally spook and fly away to a tree. You need to damn near step on them out here in my area.

    A good day grouse hunting.

    Why pluck, cut or clean? Immediately after dispatching the bird, lay it on its back, spread the wings out to the ground and put your left/right foot on top of corresponding wings, grab the feet of the bird and pull everything you want to eat! Grouse, dove quaill, works perfect. No fuss no muss

    Poured some lead today.

    It helps draw out the impurity, it will bring it to the top of the melt and you remove it from the lead.

    Poured some lead today.

    I do, I smelt all my lead in a larger set up, I add saw dust for flux to help clean the impurity’s then pour ingots for later use. When I cast, I use a bottom pour pot, I add a kidney bean sized bit of wax to the pot and stir it in.

I am a craftsman, 3rd generation, I greatly admire the rifle building skill and want to learn. I’m thinking I had just better jump...

    Beer Can Busters of the World Unite

    unfortunately I don’t have beer cans to target anymore, I have been reduced to whitclaws, my awesome wife of 23 years said that beer makes my farts stink! So no more beer. The whiteclaw cans are taller and narrower, still a fine target.

    Getting ripped off by a forum member?

    It’s personal when a person gets ripped off, if there is a scammer or unscrupulous seller I feel it should be well known on this forum or any forum. Cast boolits has thread to identify such, it has to be approved by a moderator to post. It is an effective tool.

    Lousy shooting!

    The pigeons we eat out here are very good, like dove meat. We wrap a slice of bacon around the breast, a slice of fresh jalapeño and bbq.

    Forgot to mention I’m using fffg, for most 45 shooting. My cva Mountain rifle shoots a little better with ffg. Goex and Schuetzen are the powders I have on hand.

    I like to start at a given weight charge, say 45gr by volume, do 5 shots, put up a new target, increase by 5gr by volume do 5 more shots. I’ll usually go up to 70 gr or so. I measure the groups to see what charge my gun likes, that’s the weight I focus on, try different patch thickness, pre...
