Bergara B-14 HMR
When it comes to top quality hunting rifles, Bergara is known for their unique design that maximizes comfort while also providing an element of style. The bolt-action B-14 HMR is a beautifully crafted hunting rifle that’s designed for stability and accuracy.
One of the most interesting features of this gun is its aluminum chassis built into the stock for better weight distribution and accuracy.
One of the nicest features about the B-14 is its curved trigger design, which is optimized for an easy pull with every fire. Another perk to this gun is the adjustable cheekpiece, an addition that does wonders increasing accuracy while making the gun more comfortable when lining up a target.
Want to see the Bergara HMR in action and learn a little bit more about what it’s capable of? Have a look at this short video clip from SHOT Show 2017:

Sabot Overhaul - Part 1
Before the actual test shooting begins ... to see what it is going to take to produce a tougher, yet still easy loading sabot ... let's take one more look at why the need exists. If you are absolutely content with being able to shoot with the accuracy and the knockdown power to take big game at 200 yards, then the following probably will not be of any interest to you. However, if you have aspirations of being able to take big game at 300 yards, or a bit farther, with a modern muzzleloading big game rifle ... the following shares a bit more about what we're embarking to prove ... or disprove.
In April 1986, I met William “Tony” Knight for the very first time. I had driven from my home in West Central Illinois to Northern Missouri to hunt wild turkeys with him – on the Knight family farm. And to do some shooting with him with his somewhat innovative MK-85 in-line rifle. Tony had sent me one of the .50 caliber rifles in early January … and I had taken it to the mountains of East Tennessee and had taken a near 300-pound wild boar with the rifle … shooting 90-grains of Pyrodex “RS” and a 385-grain bore-sized soft lead Buffalo Bullet. The week before that hunt, I had tried shooting Del Ramsey’s equally new .50x.44 Muzzleload Magnum Products sabots and Hornady 300-grain .429/.430” jacketed XTP hollow-point bullets out of that early MK-85 (Serial No. 37) - and it shot horribly. That was due to those very first Knight in-line rifles being built with a Numrich Arms 1-turn-in 48 inches rate of twist barrel.
On that first get together with Tony Knight … I had also taken along a custom half stock rifle I had built … as a traditional long-range bullet rifle. The old H&H Barrel Works, of Ocala, Florida, had custom cut a 1 –in-24 twist .50 caliber barrel for that rifle … and it shot Ramsey’s MMP sabots and the Hornady jacketed bullet with exceptional accuracy. Tony shot his first ever 1 ½-inch muzzleloader group with that rifle (shown directly above) … and those saboted bullets during that get together … and by early fall 1986 … he had made the move to a 1-in-32 twist barrel. Then, in 1987, we had convinced Green Mountain Rifle Barrel Co. to begin turning out 1-in-28 twist barrels … and that was the start of what became the in-line rifle industry's standard rate of rifling twist.
Tips for Better Muzzleloader Hunting
Many muzzleloader seasons open during the best days of the year, and they can be your best chance at bagging a big buck. States like Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia and Oklahoma open during the heat of the rut. Midwest powerhouses like Iowa, Illinois, Ohio and Missouri have late-season opportunities in December and January. But just because there’s a gun in your hand doesn’t mean you’re carrying a modern firearm. Follow these 12 tips to become a better muzzleloader hunter.
(2.) Pick a Powder
Once you have the right gun, it’s time to purchase propellent to fuel it. True black powder comes in four consistencies (Fg, FFg, FFFg and FFFFg), but FFg is used in most modern muzzleloaders (the finer powders are sometimes used in smallbore guns and pistols, or for priming powder in flintlocks). But few hunters use true black powder these days because it’s highly corrosive and prone to fouling, compared to more modern alternatives like Pyrodex, Triple Seven and Blackhorn 209. Many black-powder substitutes are available in loose or pellet form.
Though pellets are popular with hunters, Realtree pro-staffer Tony Smotherman, a muzzleloading expert who also works for CVA, prefers loose powder.
“When you pour loose powder down the barrel, it settles in the bottom next to the breech plug in what we call the powder column,” he said. “It fills the rifling completely (and evenly) every time. This makes it super consistent by nature. When you drop pellets down the barrel, you can’t see how they stack, making them a bit more inconsistent due to not filling the rifling completely. This can leave you with air pockets around the pellets, causing an inconsistency that you can’t control.” Smotherman’s favorite powder is Blackhorn 209. “It’s super clean, and consistent chamber pressures make it an excellent choice,” he said.

Gold Mine Massacre
by William W. Johnstone (Author)
...the natural enemy of every free man is his government
For generations, the Jensens have struggled to build their home, their land, and their dreams. But now the family is forced to fight fire with fire, bullet by bullet, blood for blood...
For Smoke and his daughter Denny, life on the Sugarloaf Ranch is more valuable than all the gold in the world. Which works out fine, since all the gold mines in Big Rock were squeezed dry years ago. Even so, that won't stop a pair of smooth-talking businessmen from trying to squeeze out a little more. One of them has developed a newfangled method for extracting gold--something called hydraulics--and he's bought up all the old mines to do it. His partner is the son of legendary gunfighter Frank Morgan, and Denny thinks he's awful handsome. Smoke isn't sure what to think of these would-be gold-diggers. Especially when the handsome one triggers a rivalry with Denny's off-and-on beau, a U.S. Deputy. And then the smart one hires a small army of gunfighter to protect his mines from sabotage...
The Jensons can smell trouble brewing from a mile away. And when it involves gold, guns, and good love gone bad, it's more than just trouble. It's a massacre waiting to happen...

"Hickory Glazed Salmon".
Colonial Food during the 17th century was quite different than what we eat today. Religious beliefs, location, and harvest played a role in what was available and how much they ate.
In some cases, food was scarce and many early colonists endured possible starvation and malnutrition. As the population increased and colonies became more developed food became less of an issue and each region began to develop their own unique flavors.

Sellers Beware of Payment Dispute Scam!
This comment was made by an eBay seller, and if you read the new greed rules by eBay, they win...YOU LOSE!
10-15-2020 12:45 PM
Beware of following scenario.
Buyer claims item not received, though tracking shows it was. Claim immediately ruled in seller favor. Next day buyer supposedly files dispute with financial institution. Ebay asks that you provide tracking, even though you already have. Since the process seemed a bit different than before Managed Payments, I spoke to Ebay CS rep. She told me they forward tracking to the financial institution, but result is out of their hands. What? You follow the stringent Ebay rules so that you think you are protected and this is what you are told? Ebay CS being what it is, I iniiated another phone call, thinking the previous person was typical of the uninformed service in general. This time I was told same thing, and furthermore, if found in buyer's favor, a $20.00 fee is assessed to seller. Again, I say, WHAT? You follow the rules, and they hang you out to dry?
1. Prior to MP this would not happen. When Paypal managed payments and this happened, they covered you with their Seller Protection. Ebay is not.
2. Not only is ebay not protecting you here, they are actually charging you $20.00 if the case goes buyer's way!!! Let that sink in. Buyer gets item and money returned. Ebay collects fees plus $20.00 for their involvement. You, seller, get screwed. This is simply legalized theft!
NOTE FROM MG: I read the eBay new rules, and you the seller are going to get nailed for everything, especially if you sell or buy outside of eBay, or you don't meet their performance standard, one of many other ways they can take your money.....YOU LOSE. I also quit selling on eBay!!!
