    This will be more true as time goes by with the BHO administration.

    Then the standard frame version could be a better fit

    It's pretty nice
    I did have the $ and want the ammo. Kind of pissed I'm supposed to go on FB which I can't for lack of account to find out! I must be able to get on an e-mail list? It's good ammo and hotter I'm willing to load myself even in new cases. I trust my rolled ammo but he's got insurance, I don't.

    Ammo reloading is a fine hobby. I've been doing it since 1978.

    Shot 50 rounds of Underwood 180 grain full power this afternoon. Amazing stuff! At just under 800lb.ft.f its a big step up from from the warm loads that Remington and Federal make (570-600ft.lb.f). Shoots really flat and I got a 1" group of three all on the bullseye from a string of 5, at 17yds off hand - we will ignore the two outliers that were 3" off the bull ha ha.

    The recoil is a solid thump to the palm but muzzle flip was minimal and I could have double tapped on target - if the range allowed it.

    Loud too - I made the guy shooting a .44Mag next to me flinch a couple of times ha ha. :tongueout:

    You got that right - empty shelves = higher prices. :cool:
