Interesting! Crimping the round changed the pressure, thus changing the accuracy. But now I know how they will act.

That's pretty good shootin for an old geezer.
Are the bullets staying in pace during recoil that you didn't crimp? The ones in the magazine that is. If they are you've got yourself a good load worked up.

The ones that I crimped were crimped because the bullets were "loose" in the neck after full-length sizing. I don't understand why? The bullets that were NOT crimped were run through a neck-sizing die AFTER full-length sizing. They were nice and snug. The Barnes rep said NOT to crimp.

You ever had the loose like that before. Mine have always went in pretty tight. Sometimes on a rifle that has a good bit or recoil you have to crimp becuase the rounds that are in the magazine will get pushed further into the cases with the recoil.

Regardless that's a very good group. Says something for the load, the rifle and the shooter.

You're such a nice guy! The loads are not my own... they are from the Barnes rep. The only credit I can claim is not DOUBLE loading any of the cases! I don't know why they were loose after FL sizing... I don't think they should have been.

In the dog house, that doesn't sound good.

Out of the Doghouse this weekend!!



Man, I have been up all night. Went to bed at 11:30, laid there for an hour and a half... so I got up and went to the shop! I couldn't get the visions of sugar-plumbs dancing out of my head. It's raining right now so maybe the deer will be moving in a couple of hours... going to find out. In the meantime, I just finished working on fenders. 4:30 AM and I have glass and Bondo dust all over me. Oh Joy!!

Question: I found a couple of nicks, very small but a little on the deep side, on each fender. This is AFTER we completed our Bondo work, and we missed them. Can I build up the glazing compound on them or do I have to break the Bondo back out? Diameter-wise, they are very small. I just don't know how deep you can use glazing compound to fill a hole.

Thanks

Sleepless out of the doghouse.

Scott. How deep are the scratches? I do a lot of minor glass repair on my boat and the glazing material I use is only good for about 1/16 deep.

If you haven't already, use a bright light held against the panel and look across the panel. You'll be better able to see any high spots, ridges, sanding marks, pinholes, etc that may be left over.

Good luck hunting this morning. Let us know the outcome.

Thanks, Jody. The nicks are more like areas where the gelcoat blistered off the glass. There might have been an air bubble under the gelcoat. It's definitely more than a 1/16. I have already smeared a layer of glaze over the area. I figured to let it dry, buff it some, and do another layer. That will fill it. I just wasn't sure if it would stay there for the rest of my life!

Went to the shooting house at 6:30. It's been drizzling all morning. The food plot is misty and the kind of morning when you KNOW Mac Daddy is going to walk out! At 7:10 I heard the first shots... and they were very close! Turns out a bunch of guys are shooting dove in the pea field across the road. BANG BANG! I'm trying to stay alert, the dove are flying and they're banging away... I figured I'd just go home. Saw nothing but a covey of quail feeding on the rye grass. But it was cool to watch them.

Glad to hear that you're out of trouble Scott. I guess I get in the doghouse too but am too dumb to know it.

I bet you're tired by the end of the day. Hey you ought to head back out hunting this afternoon and just relax and go to sleep, won't be anybody to bother you out there. Trust me it works great.

Sounds like you're getting close on the fenders. It also sounds like they're turning out great too.

I'm too tired to go to sleep!! Ever been that way?? I'm debating shooting primer on the fenders today, but I'd have to do it inside the shop, and there's a lot of stuff in there that I don't want covered with overspray. But since I'm stubborn and hard-headed, I may do it anyway! I'll post up some progress pics later on today.

I'll definitely be back in the woods this afternoon. We have a tower with a high-back office chair that is very comfortable! But I'd rather shoot something!

Yes, go hunting!!!

I went this morning, peeked out the back window and saw two *fat* Fox Squirrels on my bird feeder. One down and another to go...I love CB Shorts for backyard pest control. Suckers are mowing down a pound of black sunflower every two days so thinning the herd is necessary and tasty.
