Re: Question for those who roll their own. Raptortrapper 05/16/2022 11:25 PM
Thanks guys. Okay- from the top...

Ernie- Man, I'd love to come do Wyshot again, but I doubt it will be this year. I need to get your address though as I would like to donate some stuff from the store for the prizes you give out.

Reflex- I was one of those that didn't even know there was an issue with the website. I logged back in and thought, "Well this looks different." Did a little reading on the threads and figured out what happened. Glad it's back up and running. Thanks for the link, I will give them a call and get this rolling. I don't think I'm going to pursue the "not using a gas check" option. Was just curious, but sounds like it is more trouble than it's worth. Was just thinking that if I ever ran out of gas checks, is shooting without them an option. I'll stock up, and shouldn't have to worry about it. I know each gun is different, and I am really hoping that this one likes the 335gr bullets that I have on hand. Won't be the end of the world if it doesn't. Just means more "testing", and I'm okay with that! :-)

Mup- Thanks for the link. I will check it out for sure. Always enjoy the history of bullets, handguns, etc.

Re: Parts for a Competitor Franchise 05/14/2022 11:06 PM
Unfortunately, I don't think that you'll find one unless someone who has a Competitor, just has an extra extractor. I know that Al's son, Ritchard Staitiff is still alive. Find him, and he may have a line on extra parts. I know that he still lives around Jaffrey, NH

Re: Bullet for Brown Bear wvhitman 05/14/2022 3:44 PM
Tom, I did a 8' brown bear several years ago with my Taurus Raging Bull .500 S&W at 129 yds. with a 375 br. Barnes X. He dropped and was dead. My guide insisted I put another one in him, but it wasn't needed. The X is a fantastic bullet for heavy game. Getting ready for this hunt I took several deer with this combo out to 150 yds. All were 1 shot.
Not handloading makes it a little more difficult. 350 XTPs are definitely NOT good bullets for much of anything.
email me at wvhitman@frontiernet.net and we can "talk" a little more.
