    Yellowstone!

    I bought a bottle of it a couple of weeks ago and I've got to say it's the smoothest whiskey I've ever drank. It's Supposedly Bourbon but I'd say it's as smooth as the best Scotch I ever had.

    There are a number of sellers

    McMaster-Carr has them I just noticed. I was lucky enough to be able to buy a few from a used tool place near where I live summers. They had no idea how to price them so it was my gain, for once. I...

    A friend

    went to the Eley center a few years ago now, tested and bought a good quantity of what shot well in his rifle. When He got back to New England, the rifle didn't shoot the ammo well. As I recall, he...

    Guess I'll make my own then!

    Should be simple enough to make the brush holders but the jags are a different kettle of fish !

    The V thread

    I remember working on was likely made in the 30's. The owner was likely in his 60's when he had me fix it and his father had won the rifle from a lottery ticket on the rifle.

    Perhaps:

    One of the cures has been to wrap string and the like around the male thread but it shoots loose quite readily. The most recent one I did I peened the threads back toward their original shape. and...

    Bore Rider Jags

    Does anyone make Bore Rider type Jags and Brush holders currently? I heard the original maker has retired.

    Takedown?

    Old Takedown 99's can get worn and this could contribute to excess headspace. I have tightened a couple of them up, over the years. The last one had flat threads that were stretched quite badly.

    In My opinion

    It is important to have the muzzle running dead straight when cutting the crown and the most important thing is to cut a small radius inside the crown. The radius will deter a lot of potential damage...

    I agree,

    What kids experience in the first three years of their life sets them up for what will come later, particularly being raised by mentally ill, violently inclined parent or parents. I've been told that...

    My advice:

    Don't stand if you can sit and don't sit if you can lie down.

    Yes, I've experienced the same

    generally, if a rifle breaks in a match someone offers one to finish with. I know of at least one shooter who generally has two competitive extra rifles ready to shoot and when I was shooting a lot,...

    Did you try

    the New barreled action in the Black stock? That would be the only to find out if it is, in fact the action, wouldn't it? Have you tried the Blue Light Special barreled action in another stock?

    I have often wondered

    how much a stock and bedding play into how accurate rifles are. Will a Hummer barreled action, bedded into another stock still be a hummer? I've never believed actions were the critical link. Once...

    Thanks for the reply

    This process, more or less is what I see folks doing at the range. Most people I know buy a barrel, get it chambered and find something that will shoot in it and shoot it until it quits. None of the...

    I, on the other hand

    believe we have the equipment today to make nearly perfect ammunition and the ammo is what really puts the icing on the cake if all else goes well. One can't have ammo that is too good and ammo with...

    I've owned a lot of Benchrest rifles

    over the years, built for me, traded for, bought outright and of all of them only one of them would throw shots. All the rest of them were and are capable of winning matches. From my experience,...

    I've been through

    quit a few 30 barrels over the years and while one of the best barrels I ever had was an 18 in a 308 Obermeyer, I pretty much settled on 17's a long time ago. I use to shoot 110gn bullets through it...

    Buying your way in

    Great reply

    Thank you for this. Real world information. Having said that, are you a "gadget guy" or an old school simple equipment guy?

    Thanks,
