  1. Mississippi Gun Laws
    Are there any MS statues that define when a gun is loaded? Is it only 'loaded' when there is a round in the chamber? Or is it 'loaded' if you just have ammo in the mag? How does it apply to revolvers?
  2. Reloading/Ammunition
    I've always been reluctant to leave a lever gun tube loaded for very long, since it tends to deform the tip on various bullet designs within a day or 2 - JHP, LRN, etc. But I have deliberately left my Henry fully loaded for the past 10 days with Hornady LeveRevolution as a experiment. Dumped...
  3. General Firearms Discussion
    Maybe a silly question, but I’m pretty sure most people carry some form of hollow-point in their carry guns. The question is this: is your primary mag and backup mag loaded with the same? Or do you mix your loads with fmj and hollow-point in the same mag? Is mixing loads asking for a failure if...

  6. Reloading/Ammunition
    Just curious if anybody else cleans their loaded ammo in the tumbler? Getting ready to load some, and noticed that the brass is a little discolored (it's "pre" walnut-mineral spirit-wax media). Planning on cleaning it in again after I load it.
  7. Reloading/Ammunition
    This morning while watching Trump become the 45th President, I trimmed and primed 100 hulls. This is 50 slugs (green) and 50 buckshot (red). The buckshot shells are 9 00 Buck. I picked these hulls today because of the patina on the heads. The green shells are Remington Gun Club hulls...
  8. Reloading/Ammunition
    After I got home from doing the Thanksgiving thing last night, I experimented with more buckshot shells. The 3 sizes of buckshot that I cast. #1 buck is 30cal, 00 buck is 33cal and 000 buck is 36cal. After I cut the pellets from the sprue I tumble them in water (no SS pins) for about an...
  9. Reloading/Ammunition
    While doing a little cleaning (looking for stuff that needs to be thrown away) this morning, I came across a string of shotgun shell Christmas lights. Those little white Christmas lights that are stuck into empty shotgun shells. At first I threw them in the trash, then got to thinking...
  10. Reloading/Ammunition
    Yesterday i loaded up some 178s to try out of the Garand with IMR4895 in 1964 Match LC brass. Was hoping they shoot well enough for some deer hunting. Got out to the farm and it started flooding so i set out a 1 gallon water jug at backed up about 100 yards. Water jug is in peices, Primer...
