      Yep, we were hunting feral pigs near Macon. The butcher who processed the pig told us the story how he caught Brucellosis when cut himself several years ago. His experience was really unpleasant. Please wear gloves and don't cut yourself gutting pigs.

      Ar15 upper

      You need to be able to take off the handguard first. Sometimes it is problematic. Then you need to take off the gas block. Depending on your muzzle device you may need to take it off too. Once it is done the .223 barrel is free can be pulled from upper. What length is your existing as tube on...

      What did you do at your reloading bench today?

      I after I tested my .350 legend reloads found a problem. First try was with Hornady 170gr SP and Lil'gun, it was pretty successful. Next try was with Barnes TSX FB 170gr and I did it without actual comparison of the bullet length. I sit the bulets to the same COAL of 2.260 The accuracy was so-so...

      Yesterday afternoon was on a public land. Didn't see any deer but saw one hunter with no stand. Today went from 10 till 3, also public land. No deer seeing but saw four hunters in the forest. It is tough. Also seems it is pretty common to see people stalk hunting during firearm season on public...

      What did you do at your reloading bench today?

      Indeed it is Bosnian ammo "Igman Konjic". The Lee die was able to semi-deprime it, I mean the spent primer was pushed out. But depriming pin is too thick and was left inside the flash hole. Thinner pin will probably work better.

      What did you do at your reloading bench today?

      Be careful with some brass you pick at the range! These 5.56 have too narrow flash hole so the decapping pin stucks and gets pulled from the decapping stem. The diameter of Lee's decapping pin is .06" and it is too large.

      Harbor Freight rock Tumbler vs Frankford Arsenal Lite

      So my 11 years old Frankford Arsenal Quick-N-EZ tumbler started to break - the plastic inside the bowl around embedded nut started to chip out. I went to Harbor Freight in Gaithersburg to check their tumbler. Failed to find it myself and asked a worker. And was told one intersting story. The...

      What cartridge do you use for deer?

      Not much firearm hunter just because the hunting season for deer is so short in MD. Majority of the hunts are with crossbow. But for firearms I use Rem 700 in 30-06 in PA where semiauto is still(!) banned. In MD for deer it is almost always AR15 in 6.8SPC. Also use it for pigs in GA and SC...

      Wow, awesome, congrats! Went hunting today at unusual time, was sitting on a public land in MoCo from 10am till 3pm. Had a chance but didn't take it - saw a doe at 1:40pm at about 60yds, she was always behind some branches. Had her for good 1 sec in my sight but decided to wait a little because...

      New camo - Need Suggestions

      One of the biggest problem with kuiu/kryptec hunting pants is the pockets design. They are not functional - for hunting I prefer pockets which can be fastened with some silent methods, not with zipper or velcro. And there should be side pockets and they should be big to fit water bottle.
