Re: How does Australia look to you from the USA?

I took a trip to Australia for diving a few years ago (spent 7 days on the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea). Then after diving spent several days touring Queensland (based out of Cairns). My impressions were that I really enjoyed the Aussie people I met, they're like a bunch of good 'ole boys with ...

Re: Defender of the Does

No, he eluded me that season (2009). I got him on a trail cam and I had him in front of me for about 45 minutes one evening just out of bow range and he never came close enough. This past season (2010) I didn't see him, I hope he survived but I didn't get a chance to get cameras out this past season...

Re: What causes binding/jamming in the PS90 Mag?

If they are reloads, the problem is likely your resizing die. Most dies do not resize the brass to factory brass dimensions. As such there is generally a little taper to the brass, that allows the brass to stack up differently than if they were at factory dimensions. Usually not a problem for the pi...

Re: Bad day at the range.

True Blue is also very susceptible to the effects of static electricity. I ground my Dillon powder measure because I've seen huge variations in powder (doesn't necessarily have to be a double charge) throws prior to grounding my powder measure.

Re: Waste not want not?

I personally have no qualms about throwing away excess food. I don't subscribe to the idea that eating everything on my plate will somehow prevent someone from going hungry. It'll just make me fat, and they'd still be hungry. If we give our excess food to farmers, it will reduce their production cos...

Re: Gun Safe

What kind of safe you get should be determined by what you want the safe to do. If you just want a place to store your guns and keep the kids out of your stuff, then any gun safe would do. However, if security and fire protection are important, then you need to consider how much security and fire pr...

Re: Bison Bull

They had one on display that was beautifully engraved and cased, a presentation model. Very impressive gun. The manufacturer there said the recoil was surprisingly not as bad as say the S&W 500, but of course its about twice the size.

Re: High power bolt modification

Well done gentlemen, I have learned a lot from your contribution to this discussion. I had a chance to shoot a hunting round in my PS90 with the lead tape that weighs 42 grams on the bolt . Grantness suggested a round like this to clone the 197 factory round. This round is an excellent choice for h...

Just loaned my copy of "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougal (sp?) to my office manager. A good read and got me excited enough about running to have done my first half marathon (13.1 miles) this past spring

I'm glad I stayed at the Hilton for the convention. I did not see any anti gun postings at the Hilton in Charlotte.

Re: High power bolt modification

Just measured my rate reducer I get a length of 1.0", diameter of 0.552". I didn't disassemble the bolt assembly, but I get a wall thickness of close to 0.1" thick. Don't know how deep this recess is that holds back the spring since I didn't remove it. But just calculating the volume based upon a ho...

Re: High power bolt modification

This is a great topic! If you are going to increase the mass of the bolt by drilling/adding I would recommend replacement with tungsten slugs and sealing them in with JBweld or other tough machinable epoxy. Drill the holes perpendicular to the barrel axes so that it isn't subject to recoil loads st...

Re: High power bolt modification

The scale I have been using is giving inaccurate weight and the reported 0.8 ounces is probably in error. I plan to weigh the bolt on a good scale as soon as possible. Thank you for your calculation and I would be grateful if you would do it again when I get a correct weight for the lead. :facepalm...
