I'm sitting in the big John Deere, following the combine around the field. Saw a nice buck and a coyote today.

Well, I'm lurking around here, looking one direction at my '76 on the wall, then turning the other way at the rain hitting the window.   :'(

In the meantime, I'm hoping someone will write about their adventures here so that I can live vicariously.

"Lubers"?  No, but I do use their sizing dies if I need to size bullets.  Since I pan-lube my bullets and I'm generally not in a hurry, they work fine for me.

Been watching hunters shoot deer turkey and hog the last couple wks. Have not pulled a trigger on animals myself yet. Sat down at the pasture bench yesterday and pulled the trigger on four different 76 caliber rifles. Shot all four 10 shots each at 100yd. The 40/60 with the 22" oct. barrel. is a tack driver , and mild . The 28" round barrel 45/60 shoots really good and is one of my earliest 76 rifles. The 28" 45/75 oct. barrel is a blast to shoot and is a tack driver. I have taken game with it at just under 200 yds. Kills like a sledge hammer . The 24" Half round Express rifle in 50/95  , truley  a BLAST , great hunting rifle . Will test its killing ability very soon. Like em all , but must say Winchester got it right the first time with the 45/75wcf . Its the King in my book. The one i grab if i'm serious about getting it done .,,,DT
