    I did not reload today but i did some unloading. found some 45/70 blanks in my grandfathers stuff, so i went over to mom and dad's house and ran them in the 1873 trapdoor and the 1886 trapdoor as well. Just making shure that they both fired as i am buying the 1873. Now i just have to sit down and reload a few full load's to let my mother have some pride in shooting my grandfathers guns. She did have fun shooting the blanks today.

    Ah what the heck, late PM loaded up another fifty .45-70. I'll be going through them quickly enough between tomorrow and next weekend.

    no kiddn. I only shoot crap like that when i have it here to work on. I had a guy send me a mod 70 in .300 Winmag to lap and develop a load for. Fired a total of about 70 rounds over the last week. Thats quite enough of thet beast.

    Ill stay to my .308s and .30-06s.

    Theres no need for anything bigger than the oughtsix on this continent. Its more than capable of 1000 yds and the Targets wont know the difference and a 150 gr pill will just about pass clean thru most big game. Only place I can think of that would require a bigger gun is the Alsaskan wilderness where there are 2000 pound grizzlies ready to eat you. Then id consider a .458 mag or something brutal.

    I love my .06. I have never tried to shoot 1000 yards but maybe I should give it a try.

    Just need a good bullet and a steady hand Jim. The hornady Amaxes are good choices.
