    Hi Timbo, we’ll probably agree to disagree which is fine. We’re both entitled to our own opinion. However, if we accept the vote counts from the 2020 Presidential election, which I don’t at this point but just assuming they are correct and legitimate, vs the 2016 election totals the U.S...

    Twitter, Youtube, etc are out of control. A glimpse of what is to come if this election ultimately gets stolen. The MSM and social media are in full court press mode to suppress and silence anyone who does not submit and comply.

    Evidence was in the form of testimony from eye witnesses - elections canvassers, forensic computer experts, military intelligence officers, attorneys who worked as canvassers, etc. Most of the individuals who provided testimony were very good and highly credentialed. They didn’t get too deep...

    Agreed. Bush and Romney are as bad, if not worse, than the libs. Traitors. I don’t see Trump conceding anything. Period.

    Giuliani and Ellis presented some of their case, including witness testimony, to the legislature in PA today. And as much as the MSM will deny it and hide it, they actually presented evidence! Numerous rounds of applause from the gallery. I believe it was one of the last zoom participants (a...

    And even with the cheating, fraud, media manipulation, etc Trump still received seventy-something million votes? More than have been cast for any presidential candidate prior I believe. So, a bit of a stretch to say Trump beat himself because of his abrasive personality and general dislike...

    Scirocco

    SST is definitely not similar to the Scirocco. The SST is much more lightly constructed. If you look at a section view of each the difference is quite evident. May not be a great comparative example, but not terrible either, SST would be more comparable to a Nosler Ballistic Tip and the...

    Chamber issue on my 450/400 3” Verney Carron double

    Hi Doug, I think it is likely there is nothing wrong with the chambers of your VC. Probably just the shoulder location on the factory cartridges are a bit short. Obviously being a rimmed cartridge it headspaces on the rim, so shoulder location is less critical than a cartridge that headspaces...

    Which is the signature animal for each Hunting country?

    When I think of Zimbabwe I think of elephant. Yes, there are other countries that offer elephant hunting, but do any have the amount of opportunity Zim does and especially at price points that are in reach for many traveling sportsmen?

    416 Rigby bent brass

    Extraction/ejection. The harder you run the bolt, the worse it’s going to get. The mouth of the case hits the inside of the receiver as it gets extracted and ejected. Hornady brass doesn’t hold up as well as Norma, but even Norma brass in my RSM .416 Rigby takes a beating.

    Rusty Stainless Montana Rifle

    Generally speaking, the type of stainless steel used in rifle barrels and receivers is 416. In some instances 17-4 is used for receivers. 416 (which can be 410 or 421) is used because it is heat-treatable and easily machined. In order to be heat-treatable it must contain carbon, meaning it is...

    Sight, sound or smell, which evokes African Safari the most?

    All three for sure, but sight may be the least likely to “take me back”. The doves, baboons, guinea... those sounds take me there in a relaxed sort of way. The sawing of a leopard, or a lion complaining about his problems, well that takes me there in a different way :) But smell may be the...
