Light Varmint Loads For A Featherweight Rifle They are even smaller at a distance...

06/07/2020   Audio Prologue: Apparently, there are places within these United States where large expanses of rolling plains, clumsy herd animals and hole creating prairie dogs intersect to wipe out a rancher’s only source of income; the herd. Surely you have seen splinted cattle, gimping along on a cattle drive with marked down price tags…

Winchester’s Model 1885 Traditional Hunter Deluxe and the 38-55 WCF Part I I can see for miles and miles and... well, at least 100 yards

Winchester 1873 and the 44-40 WCF Part I Project Status: 80% time spent, 20% done

Most load data I’ve put together, and most I’ve seen, is based on relatively fast powder and short barrel carbines or handguns.
