    I researched this subject once

    and what I read said it's the dissolved Aluminum in water that is harmful and there was no danger from particles such as those from aluminum pots, etc.

    My first custom RF rifle

    Came to me with a Fudd tuner on it. It worked the same way most tuners work. The thing I liked about it was the hole on it was the size of the OD of the barrel. I use to use it so that the face of...
  3. Personally

    I'd rather be Hoss Whipped than shoot 300 yards. Guess there are a number of others who feel the way I do. I have a few 300 yd Agg patches but never liked it.

    Some of the things

    I found interesting were the lapping of spacers for alignment and the air seal. Back when we were rebuilding a lot of spindles for shops grinding carbide there were no air seals nor were surgical...

    My former gunsmith

    used a 7MM HBR rifle for a few years. Made his own bullets and said it shot great. Problem was getting jackets. He gave up but I think he still has the rifle and dies but doubt he's sell them. I've...
  8. Exactly

    If I hadn't begun watching YouTubes a couple of years ago, I would have died never knowing some of these things exist. Living pretty far back from the "Main Stream" of America, likely I never would...

    This promises to be

    about as enduring as the AR class was I'd say. To old farts like me, a total waste of band width.

  11. I have been watching

    A couple of Youtube creators who go to the junk yards and by LS engines trying to pick the aluminum blocks and heads, adding turbos to them and make them run. The LS engines seem to be very robust....

    In the Smallbore Silhouette world

    I have not seen anyone using multiple lots of ammo. Those stinkin Rams @ 107 yards have to have a pretty small grouping to be able to hit them and I've never seen anyone using two or more lots of...

    I have one

    that was built by a "Gunsmith". When I sent it to a second Gunsmith for a re-barrel it was discovered that the "Gunsmith" hadn't done much good for the action when he thought he had trued it.

    It seems to me

    that we are making things a lot more difficult than they have to be by not recognizing a good thing when we see it. Foolish to stay entrenched in the 64 ths system regardless of the Moon.

    How come the US hasn't embraced the metric system?

    It seems to make more sense and a whole lot easier. The Auto industry has done it to some extent so why not just do it. 10's are a heck of a lot easier than 64 ths! Even England seems to have gone...
  16. Well deserved

    Gary has put more into the sport than most. He is a great tuner and shooter. I hope his new endeavor goes well for him and Cooper. I can think of several Coopers he has helped shoot as well as any...

    The maker of Falcons

    I agree Bill

    4 WD trucks get stuck too. I've had both and much prefer a 2 WD. I have been out of the snow winters for 12 years so 2 WD is fine for me. I recently bought a nice 85 S 10 Chevy I am in the process of...

    Ya

    What I figured, we ain't talkin the same language. A zero group is a zero group any way one looks at it but I can see it's pointless to continue with this.
