Looks you got a good setup going. just watch out for stuck media in the flash hole. Definitely a digital scale makes the world of a difference. Glad your getting good results. Like you said, your first load for a wheel gun is much safe for learning. As long as its not a double charge, thats all that matters.

Trying to figure out all the little things you need is time consuming for reloading. Now I am trying to figure out what I need for resizing/honing/ etc. I have one piece, but then you need this and this....etc.

I managed to reload 100 .38SPL yesterday with two different grain loads and 148g wad cutters. Also managed to reload 100 .357 MAG rounds - again with two different grain loads and copper jacketed 158g bullets. Looking forward to starting the testing to see what works best.

welp. prognosis of my scans didn't turn out as i hoped. Minor disc degeneration from L1-L5 vertabrate, moderate from L5 down. Also causing spinal stenosis. Instead of the disc bulging to the sides, mind is going straight into the spine which is causing it to put pressure on my nerve which explains why my legs will get tingly and numb when i stand. So off to the specialis referal now and the waiting game beings. I had a 66% chance of being able to be easily operated on but just my luck i fell into the 33% that is not so easy. FML

Stay positive man.
At least you're past this stage and moving on to the next one with the specialist. Modern back surgery is a lot less invasive, and a lot more successful today. Plus you're in good hands in BC. There are a lot of good surgeons who work in our region.

There is truth to staying positive though. While your case may be difficult, it's not impossible and that is a hope to hang on to. Think about going to your first IPSC match after all this is said and done. It's going to be all the sweeter when you get there


Also, guns.
I'm still waiting on my 45/70 sights.

And also those Remington 870 parts from Int'l.
Any word on those, incubus?

Thanks for the words of encouragment. Was pretty depressed all weekend but trying to stay positive. Already going through enough as is don't need to add depression to that list. lol.

Gun related:
You guys hear about canadammo and their BOGO 1/2 off shotguns? Was so depressed on the weekend and almost did some retail therapy and was just about to order all the stuff to build an SBR AR, but decided against it.. or at least till i'm done doing my taxes

Sorry to hear about the diagnosis - I always say you're only as old as your spine.

If you ever want to come up to the range here sometime, even if it's for the drive and some lighter recoil shooting, lemme know. Can also go out and blow some Tannerite - that's a good anti-depressant.

thanks for the offer. Definatly keep that in mind. I still have 6 lbs of tannerite i need to shoot. I can always run my sub sonic rounds through my 308. its almost like shooting a supressed 223.

You guys hear about the new indoor range opening up in langley. Calibre up to 7.62x39.

That range was a pipe dream that turned into a reality. It's crazy that it all went through, especially with the anti gun crowd still being so vocal.

therangelangley.com

The best part is, it's just down the street from my work!!!

Nice, thats awsome for you. I'm only about 25 min drive, so not horrible. Should do a meet there one day. I talked to the people there, range should be ready for live fire in another month or so. They are open for open house and membership. I just love not having to go out to mission to shoot the T97/AR

I just renewed my membership at my range. It's reasonable at $150/yr. I use it quite often, and even more often when I'm injured and can't play hockey.



Anyway, I'm hoping the prices won't be out to lunch like DVC. I'm actually going to head over to the Langley range in a bit to check it out. I didn't know they had people working there already. Maybe with a range so close to work, I can justify an AR now. hmmmmm.........

I want to give a shout out to Ed at International Shooting Supplies in Surrey. That guy always takes the time to discuss with me in-depth about whatever subject I have on the go. I just spent another hour there yesterday going over reloading information with him and I think he appreciates people that are right into the hobby. Walked out with a few small items (and a new Chrony) that will really take my reloading in the direction I want it to. Still smiling.

Basically, I say 'hi' to incubus and then chew off Ed's ear cuz I'm more of a rifle guy and incubus prefers his 9mm's blazing.

They have some Mini Mags in stock, I took 10 boxes home. Took them to the range later and they are just in the plastic holder the cardboard box - they aren't in their usual plastic cases anymore. Thumbsdown on that if you want to take them anywhere except the range.

Zedbra, ISS is my go to place as well, despite not being the closest one, i've always had top notch service there. Always end up walking out with wayy more than expected. You can never have too much ammo either. I usually keep at least 4k factory ammo at home. Need to stockpile some more now, at one point i think i had over 10k misc rounds.

Oh, I think I am around 10k rounds about now. I spread my buying over several local shops and do not buy online stores except Budget and Stoeger (for some mags I needed). Generally, I buy a lot of my basics from Italian because it is close to me and their prices are the same as others but they offer the BCWF discount on ammo and accessories, saving a lot of money over time; they just don't have the best stock I find.

A good friend finally lent me his early model Ruger .44 MAG Deerfield Carbine to try out for a while. This things is getting rare and is the predecessor to the 10/22 but with a lot more dropping power. I can't wait to put some through it tomorrow.

^ you had a few beautiful rifles in your inventory. That used custom 7mm MAG is still on my mind. If you want one rifle that will last your lifetime and then some, I'd add that one to your steed.

Today I deprimed, trimmed, chaffed, measured, washed, then tumbled (still tumbling the last 75) 150 7mm MAG cartridges - ready to load. I learned a few things: reloading rifles rounds is tedious, large primer pockets are not fun to clean, you can always tell good brass when you first pick it up, and don't wait to prep 150 hunting rounds - that took hours.

I also stripped the stock of my friend's 44 carbine, it has a large 4" crack that I am going to repair, though I did tell him to order another stock while they are still available. Should be a fun little side project.

stopped by the new langley range going up. Still a long ways for opening but the owner is an awsome guy. Military police. Opening date has been delayed as they scrapped the origional 7.62 limit and redisgned the backstop to handle 50BMG. Went over the plans and layout with the owner and place should be pretty damn slick when its done. They are going to be able to do IPSC, 3 gun and what not. super excited

I have a Bushnell TRS-25 on my 870 shotty. I didn't like it for any of my other rifles, as I prefer to shoot further than I can see. But it's been solid, and it's a lot of fun with slugs.

Anyone know anywhere locally that carries this ISSC MK22 ?



I probably should have bought it at the gun show but I wanted to read reviews on it first. Seems to have a few issues with easy fixes. And a lot of people seem to complain about the build quality but I played around with it a bit and it felt fine to me. I just wanted somthig thay looks like the SCAR lol..

I was toying with that gun on Sunday.
It is a really nice gun to shoot. One of my shooting buddies has one. I mocked him for spending so much on a rimfire SCAR wannabe, until I emptied a couple of mags through it. It cycled beautifully, and worked flawlessly throughout the day. It was really consistent in the way it shot too. The MK22 is a nice gun, albeit pricey. It's heads and tails better than my dad's Mossberg 715T. At least the MK22 has some nice build features.

So many SKS and 12 guage shotguns at the show over the weekend. I bought a nice Sun Optics green LED with laser that I mounted on my 1911. I should take a pic of that. Bought some cheap precision tools from the tool guy for $6, along with some smoked salmon. I was going to buy a "Surrey Strong" shirt too, until I came to my senses

if you still have that 22 optic, we could work out a trade for my TRS-25. It's just sitting on my 870, and honestly I would prefer some sick battle sights on that anyway.

Gonna be in Langley in the near future? Come by!
Or Whistler? I'm heading up to Alta sometime in the next few weeks too. Especially with the hill opening up on May 2.

that gun show was kind of a joke, but i guess there arent too many here that are much good, $250 for an SKS? no thanks.

Also the guy selling the top rail for the SKS for $125, claiming he designed and has one of the only ones, guy kinda got moody when we said it was too much then we found basically the exact same thing on sale online for $30 :/
