    This Hart/40x thing has been chewed over like a $2 steak for quite some time. I just Googled "hart 40x barrel mike walker" and got quite a few posts from several forums and time frames.

    Clean, crisp with no creep or overtravel is certainly my ideal, but if I can't get that, I at least want consistent and controllable. I have an ancient Stevens Favorite with a good bore that I shoot...

    There has been plenty of discussion of the Teslong on this and other forums.

    I think Al should write a Erskine Caldwell style novel on the order of "Tobacco Road" or "God's Little Acre".

    Makes me wonder, would the mash run faster if you threw in a hundred CCI BR-4's?

    I like Remington 700 actions a lot, although for some reason all mine have been short actions. I like the model 7 as well. It's probably more of a style thing than a function thing.

    The .308 is the most numerous chambering in my collection. I like it for many reasons. I have shot more deer with it than anything else, with the .30-06 probably being second.

    So, can you use the collet and then the body die? If you use the collet first, it will eject the spent primer, which may be a bit proud of the case, otherwise affecting the shoulder bump. Or, do you...
