Re: Leather Vest

It was tabled but since there is no definitive rule in the book that says they are not allowed then they will be allowed. I disagree that there is no definitive rule in the rule book that disallows leather vests in Lever action: The general rule in all silhouette is Rule 3.12 which says no shooting...

Re: Future of the Nationals?

Not likely to have more than one Nationals for any one discipline. There's only one Nation. Would that be first come first serve or apply years ahead like the Olympics?

Re: Which Smallbore Hunter Pistol?

The CP33 has a nice long sight radius for a semi-auto pistol. However, I did better with a red dot. The pistol likes Lapua Center-X. The groups below are with a bag rest. The pistol is fun to shoot but loading 33 rounds in the magazine is tedious. I'm selling it for $435 if you're interested. Only p...

Re: Eley CMP - any recent experiences with it

I purchased a couple cases of Eley CMP and wouldn't buy anymore. Half of mine were sold to others so they can try it out. None of them purchased more. In fact, they sold their remaining bricks. The rim thickness varied greatly. The bullets on some rounds were not cast well. The bricks each consist o...

Re: Henry Rifles, 24" 357....

My same suggestions were posted to their "suggestion box" a year ago for a .357 Magnum & .30-30. Hunters want the shorter barrels and Henry caters to hunters.

Re: Bergara B-14R 22LR

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Isn't that magazine off limits with the support hand for silhouette since it's not flush?

Re: Henry accuracy

For what it's worth, the Henry Originals are way too expensive for me. if Henry had a Big Boy 24" PC rifle I would have purchased it instead of a Winchester. I prefer a 31" sight radius.

Re: Reloading 357/38 SPL.... WTH?

I got four squibs with factory .38 Specials when fired in my .357 Magnum lever action. No separation though. In addition to the squibs and the increased leade (freebore) I'll only shoot .357 Magnums from now on. I have hundreds of 5.0 grains of Titegroup in .357 Magnum cases with Hornady 158 grain X...
