Re: Maine loves subgauges

Glad they legalized sub-gauges, but that is the most poorly thought out/written regulation I have ever read. So you are only allowed to use 20 gauge and larger using single-size pellets no smaller than SIXES, and nothing smaller than 7s even in a blend. But you can use “gauges 10 through 28, includ...

Re: Rib Mount Reflex sight mounts

I personally like the reflex mounted as close to the eye as possible, the O/U doesn't allow that so the rib mount is about the only option a person has. I really like the SpeedBead mount simply for the fact if your battery would happen to crap itself you can sight right down the rib and use your be...

Re: North Woods Law

Can't get over the show where the Maine GW explained to the hunter who lost his deer how an arrow keeps accelerating after leaving the bow, and since the deer was so close it didn't get good enough penetration.

Maybe the tiny jet engine in the arrow didn't ignite properly...who knows :)

Re: A PSA

I don't open links in emails. If you send me a link to something you BETTER include a personal note explaining what it is or it will be deleted asap...and I still may not open it even with the note included. :)

Simple rule of thumb is: If it makes you go HUH? delete it.

Re: Caldwell Lead Sled concerns?

I split a pool noodle in half and put that behind the butt to simulate the "give" that my shoulder would have, and put a 25lb bag of shot on the sled. Poi and poa stay the same as shoulder shots...no scope damage in the many years I've been doing this.

Re: Thin wall Tru-Choke and TSS?

Thanks all. I've got both the 1-1/8 and the 1-5/16 recipes from Hal. Gonna load 9 or 9.5 in them and try both to see if the choke handles them and which patterns best for me. Neither patterned as well as I wanted with the factory mod choke. William, I was gonna ask you about this at Unicoi but you d...

Thin wall Tru-Choke and TSS?

I have an old wingmaster 28 that I would like to turn into my go-to turkey killer. It had a fixed modified barrel and didn't pattern TSS 9 as good as I would like so after making several calls to different gunsmiths, I had Mike Orlean thread it for Tru-Choke. I ordered an extended extra full from Tr...

Lignum Vitae shipped

Finished this call up this week for a member here and shipped it yesterday. This Lignum Vitae is one of my favorite woods to work with and makes a great sounding call. Hope he enjoys using it as much as I enjoyed turning it.

Re: TriStar O\U .410

Best I recall, the bottom barrel shot about 4" lower than the top one. Never had to shoot the bottom one at a turkey because they have always dropped with the first shot. I'll try to get the time to shoot it again before long and get a pattern and regulation.

2 Briley XF chokes and a FF2 mounted on the rib. 40 yd gun with Hal's 13/16 load of 9.5.

I'll see if I can find a pic of the pattern, but it's been a while since I did that so I'm not sure I can.
