    He actually asked to have the .38 instead of the 45! He said he never could master the 45 and could not hit "the broad side of a barn" with the 1911, even though he qualified expert with the rifle.

    Well, a good friend has a serious coyote problem, and I made the mistake of telling him how good of a coyote whacker my Mini-30 is. So he borrowed it for a bit.

    Nope, no problems at all with this box. 100%. The last box of Kings Mill (different lot number) had about 20% dead primers. I have to say the Kings Mill had noticeably more snap than the reloads...

    I am a fan of the 7.62x39 round, even though I am not a fan of the AK platform (even though I have had a bunch of them through the years) To me the Mini-30 is the perfect platform for the 7.62x39. ...

    I also like the Rainier plated bullets, just a s cheap. 14.6 grains of WW296, and they print the same POA/POI as the 110 Remingtons.

    It is tight on one end, and the big gap on the other. If I center it, it doesn't look bad at all. I like the fact that it was a leather handled Camillus, rebuilt. The flipped recasso actually...
