Re: Jack Hinson's One Man War

I bought this based on the mention here. I need to say that it is among the most boring and poorly written books I have ever read. And, i am a southerner through and through, but the author was so southern biased as to make me embarrassed.

Re: Powder-coating...

Moly coating is not what we are talking about. The advantages of the paint is the bullets are not covered in bullet lube, so they are not messy, they don't smoke, and they store a long time without contaminating the powder (like lubed bullets do in the heat). Also, it allows me to increase the o.d. ...

Re: Hold over/under question

It may make more sense to you if you consider the extremes. Assume the rifle is adjusted to hit point of aim at 100 yards. This will be at 90 degrees (horizontal). Now aim the rifle straight up, or straight down. In both cases, the shot will be high from the point of aim (the bullet will never cross...

Re: Wet tumbling without pins

I have been cleaning without pins for a couple of years now. I do not have a tumbler. I have a Dillon media separator, and the plastic tube that comes with it. CM-500. I fill the basket with brass, and the bucket with water. Add a little car soap and a little citric acid. Spin the handle a few times...

Re: Iran: Ayatollah demands Americas disarm.

I don't know if you meant it that way, but those words were supposedly attributed to the Spartans defending Sparta from the Persians, who are the modern day Iranians.

Kind of ironic.

Re: Target size to distance formula?

If you want to pull out your slide rule, the tangent of the angle is the ratio of the target height to distance.
