    Howdy Boys!!!

    Found your site today @ 9:45 pm today.

    A little background:
    'Nam vet, shooting, reloading, casting since '58 under my Pa's tutalege. Love levers & hunting in the high timber. I shoot a 336 30-30 AI CAR scout for most of my field work. Love the 444 Outfitter & am a fan of Robert K. Sherwood & Sam Fadala. Hope you are too!

    I live 18 miles east of Carson City, NV. Hope I qualify!

    Howdy MarkAD!

    I use only handloads & mostly cast bullets in mine. I do like the Speer fp's loaded hot for goats & deer. 190 gr. cast (RCBS 180 Gr,) WW's, heat treated, at about 1950 fps for any bigger stuff.

    Small game load: 170 gr. LEE GC, 10 grs. Unique with a tp wad & one grain moly chassis lube. Goes about 1200 fps. Great for small game & pests!

    Bob, I sure can't throw a rock into Nevada from where I stand, but I always loved the ladies in that state, my 30-30, and high altitude hunting. Welcome aboard... Glad to have ya!!

    If'n you could, I'd find a deep hole to dive in. Thanks for the welcome, this is just terrific! What a welcome:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: I would just love to hunt eastern Washington.

    I guess people just don't know how versatile the lever 30WCF is. What a super gun, Marlin or Winny. The high timber...what can I say? Like the breath of life it is. The ladies...well...I'll leave that to you Pard.:D:D:D

    Glad to be part of the family! :thumbup:
