Re: EDC knife

Whatever works. I know the Buck Bantam 286 might sound too good to believe. ... on sale at Midway for $21.99 https://www.midwayusa.com/product/2163128778 Rather than look at one of their premium blades I should probably buy several at that price! ;-) I had one of those a few years back, and I agree...

Re: EDC knife

I've started carrying something silly - a Gerber EAB, which uses a utility blade. I need to replace my lost Benchmade, but I'll keep carrying that silly Gerber. It's kind of liberating to know you can scrape gum off sidewalks without goofing up something expensive to replace. It's a little finicky,...

Re: Western Powders Handloading Guide Edition 1

Hmm... odd numbering, but also an interesting distinction in their titling... - the #7 Hand loading guide i I have is the complete manual (about 115 pages worth) and the #6 re loading guide is mostly powder and load data (about 85 pages) Either way, I agree with you that Western puts out very good ...

Re: Western Powders Handloading Guide Edition 1

K-Tex, Is your edition number wrong by chance? (did you leave off a digit?) I have .pdf versions Western Powders reloading guide 6.0 and also the Western Powders handloading guide web REV 7.0 so I was thinking that something might be amiss. No, Sir. I'm talking about the complete reloading manual. ...

Western Powders Handloading Guide Edition 1

Before it was released, the author, Rob Behr, sent me a copy in PDF to review. He did not develop the data, but his printed instructions are among the best I've seen in any load manual, while the number of cartridges in the data is quite extensive, including some of the smaller caliber data for 5.7 ...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

Yes, the Ruger SP101 is a fine little magnum in both .357 and .327. 8F758BE7-5504-4307-91B0-EEAF640A1E63.jpeg Glad that came up! The .327 Mag is a very interesting cartridge and it increases the capacity of the SP101. There are more similarities with the .357 Mag than some may be aware of. The sect...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

I confess that I am at a loss regarding lawn care issues ever since we moved back in 2017, and I could sure use some suggestions. When we first moved to this house, our front lawn wasn’t perfect , but it was respectably good. Today, 2 years later, it is shot through with all manner of weeds; the St...

Re: EDC knife

Ontario is a brand I have considered, and will again. I can't help but wonder if their name confuses folks, so I thought I'd copy and paste the first paragraph concerning their history. "The beginnings of the Ontario Knife Company are shrouded in the mystery of a fading past. It seems certain that t...

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

One easy test you can do with a volt meter is to check the voltage at various outlets. Compare those that are showing proper voltage against those that are problematic. The circuits that are working properly should show the same voltage at all outlets. That can vary a bit with different energy provi...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

The Ruger SP101 .357 with a 4.2 inch barrel is a good revolver Ive shot 38s and .357 rounds through it and is very accurate. Haven't fired a 4.2" SP101 yet, but I've fired plenty of magnums from the 3" model. The SP101 is surprisingly robust. A good many of the rounds were .357 Mag Defense handload...

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

Had a similar experience in 1989 after a thunderstorm and close lightning strikes. Afterward I found that some circuits were not completely grounded, but had not been thrown.

If in doubt, call an electrician to check it out to make sure you have proper grounding of the breaker box. ;-)

Re: Zombie Killer

I didn't get into AR 15s until after the development of the Mk262 Mod 0 load that Chris Kyle developed for and tested with US Spec Ops. That load used the Sierra 77 gr. HPBT MatchKing w/cannelure on the bullet. The purpose of the load is reliable tumbling out to 300 yards, so there is a velocity man...
