Re: How do you take decent pictures?

OTH,

Just a small tip for close up shots that most digital cameras have. Somewhere there is a button to push that when pushed a Cauliflower looking thing comes on in the screen meaning better clarity "UP Close" I am sure your camera has that button somewhere. Hope it helps.

You can get a firing pin at Numrichs or Gunbroker has used ones listed under Marlin 336 in the small parts section. If your Gun has a crossbolt safety that could be another "problem" spot.

It is a tougher bullet than the Hornady, but as you mentioned it also has a better BC, and I believe you can get it to 2200 FPS + which would be a tough combination.
