    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I am a new hunter this year and I've got a compact 7mm-08 Savage Axis. My rifle was sighted in with the Super X Winchester power point in 140 grain. I cant find them anywhere so I ended up buying the Hornady Whitetail in 139 grain. I noticed that the bullet was just a tad bit taller than my...
  2. the Lone Airgunner EP137 Winchester 1894 butt plate

    Airguns
    I found a NOS Winchester/Daisy 1894 saddle gun on the auctions and won it. it has wood stocks, unlike the Daisy versions. It struck me as very odd that a Winchester lever gun would come sans butt plate? I bought an old Remington butt plate that wouldn't fit the Crosman 160 Pellgun I was...

    Gunsmithing
    Hello, I have a model 270 Winchester .22 cal pump and it fails to eject fired rounds. I have replaced the firing pin, firing spring and ejector and still no luck.

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    link deleted After posting this video, I've been wanting to give the Winchester XPR a try. I've usually been a Browning, Remington, and Ruger guy, but for under $550, I may have to give the XPR a shot. Let me know what y'all think.

    Gunsmithing
    Hi! I bought this rifle new, and love the heck out of it, but the BOSS took a lot of getting used to, and it's still a PIA work doubler when I want to work up a new load. So I finally decided to take it off and try something else. The problem is, I have no idea what the thread size and pitch...
