  1. HD, Lowe's etc all carry a cleaner for granite counter tops . I imagine it is the safest cleaner to use since it's made for granite. I cant vouch for what the chemicals will to the the grass.
  2. This ammo is available at .38cpr at numerous places. If you will match that price, a fair market value of $152.00for the lot, we can make a deal. .65cpr is just too high.
  3. If the load is producing repeatable accuracy that you are okay with, then leave it be. If you think you can do better, then push the envelope. Was the highest load you worked up at max according to the reloading manual you are using?
  4. What will be the rifle's purpose in life? If you just want something basic, look at the SA Saint, or even more basic, some of the PSA offerings.
  5. the load makes all the difference in recoil. It determines how much energy is needed to push the shot at a certain velocity. A 3", 1 7/8 oz, #6 ,12GA 1200 fps turkey load kicks a helluva lot more than a 2 3/4" 1oz 1100 fps trap load. But, a speedy 1300 fps 2 3/4, 1oz, #7.5 handicap trap load will kick about the same as the turkey load
  6. Pretty much all of the women at my trap club are shooting ported single and over/under 12GA. Usually Browning or Beretta. A light gun is great for minimizing fatigue, but it comes at the cost of felt recoil. The barrel on the 870, I'm guessing, is the standard 28" parked thick wall. You can shave off some weight by swapping out to a lighter profile barrel and a synthetic furniture set. The fit is very important to the shooter's ability to hit stuff, but also influences felt recoil.
  7. Yes, the public must be protected from truths. Researchable facts based on empirical data that plainly spell out how we got to where we are at now. The truth is icky, uncomfortable. Let's not upset anyone with facts relevant to the conversation..
  8. Most clay target loads are lead. A few states demand non-lead for shooting clays but even NJ does not restrict lead 100% at every WMA. Profit margins are higher on buck shot, so, all the lead is probably going to buck shot. Most lead shot is made in the USA or Peru. Lead supply may be a different story. Get the equipment. Buy it as it becomes available. It may take some time to acquire everything you need, but you will eventually get it. The fist thing you need to buy is a couple reloading manuals. Lymann, Hornady and The ABCs of reloading are a good start. The books will give you something very important to do before you start reloading.
  9. If one is reasonably confident in their storage and overall home security, then they have the luxury of making themselves a target for a firearms burglary. It doesn't mean someone won't try, it's just they are less likely to get away with it. Make no mistake, moving or not, leaving guns or ammo out in plain view can only invite problems. Sometimes people you know and think you can trust, simply cannot resist temptation. I'm not talking about your best buddy, though you can't entirely rule out close friends. But, the less you know someone, the more likely they are to steal something from you, and the more tempting it is, the more likely they are to do it.
  10. For some reason, 12 ga trap loads are still way up there. Lead shot for reloading is very difficult to find. This is unique, in that this is the first I've seen where 12ga was impacted this hard. In previous panics, 7.5 and 8 was minimally touched price wise and there was never an issue with availability.
