    Delta Update

    Ok, so I just looked and it shows it as available when i look at going from Billings to JNB. It has changed to flight 204, but it shows the same flight number for the return trip. I thought I saw somewhere that is was going to be 204 and 205 for the return but that could be just bad memory...

    US Passport Update

    It amazes me how they have nobody to process these, but evidently have no problem finding someone to process the payments they are recieving

    US Passport Update

    It was for a new passport, but it is still "in process" now. I got mine about 30 days before this and had it in about 4 or 5 weeks

    Pig Hunt

    I know you have stated that it is tough to find ammo for 45-70 at a reasonable price, but it you reload it does not take a premium bullet to do in a pig. Here is what happens to a pig head when you hit it with a 350gr round nose bullet out of a 45-70.

    One year from now, what will things look like

    This morning marks 365 days until I leave for my first African hunt. I am very excited yet a bit anxious because of all that is going on in the world today. I am not afraid of the Coronavirus itself, more anxious about what it will take to be able to get on an international flight and be able...

    Reloading Room

    Ok, lots of really neat ideas here, this is my bench. I made it clear span so i could roll end to end with the chairs and it has been modified a couple times to fit different rooms in different houses. I had to put the end table in the middle to get my powder measure/scale off the bench as any...

    Nosler Ballistic Silver Tips, anyone use these on a regular basis?? 308w etc

    I have used the 140gr in 7MM Rem Mag and 7MM WSM for whitetail, mule deer and pronghorn with excellent results. One shot kills in their tracks and one of the shots on the pronghorn was far from well placed. Have never recovered a bullet all pass through from close range to 300yds+
