    General Discussion
    HI, second time to try this. I have been lurking this site now about 3-5 months, and really enjoy reading about everyone's adventures (mostly ballistics and reloading). I tried to sign up here via the ole pocket computer (smart phone) but that got me banned FOREVER because somehow I messed...

    General Discussion
    Hey everybody. I'm the new guy. Just recently got into using my 2nd amendment rights by way of survivalist and camping/hiking hobbies. I own a Springfield .45ACP "Micro-Compact" and just purchased a Marlin 336 in .35. I've never killed anything bigger than a bug in my life, but as I would like...
  7. Newbie exposed

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    OK I am new to reloading and this post will make that very clear. As I was accumulating my gear and reading all that I can I saw one post where they improved their accuracy with some powder by switching from a large rifle primer to a large rifle magnum primer. So when I went out looking at...
