    Welcome, desertdweller!

    Hey, while I got you here, maybe you can answer a question for me. Is it true you can't / shouldn't shoot lead projectiles in a microgroove barrel? Your interest in 30-30 and 45-70 along with the Marlin rifle had me wondering if you knew.
    Apology for the temporary derail of your welcome post!

    Thanks!

    I actually do not know the answer. I wouldn’t see any issue with it seeing how they make lead ammo in the calibers. However I believe it all comes down to the exact material of the inside of the barrel and what the manufacturer says is ok to shot and what is not

    What was this "back page" thing? I had never heard of it until I joined this site. Was it some sort of a Penny Saver type of publication that had small ads for things to sell and to buy? Why was it shut down?

    Backpage was a classified advertising website launched in 2004. Up until its seizure by U.S. authorities in April 2018, it offered classified listings for a wide variety of products and services including automotive, jobs listings, and real estate. In 2011, Backpage was the second largest classified ad listing service on the Internet in the United States after Craigslist.

    As of 6 April 2018 backpage.com and affiliated websites have been seized as part of an enforcement action by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the United States Department of Justice, the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigator Division, with analytical assistance from the Joint Regional Intelligence Center.

    The site's offering of adult services sections has been highly controversial, due to allegations that Backpage knowingly allowed and encouraged users to post ads related to prostitution and human trafficking, particularly involving minors, and took steps to intentionally obfuscate the activities. After a series of court cases and the arrest of the company's CEO and other officials, Backpage removed the adult services subsection in the United States in 2017.

    Per current internet attribution etiquette , thanks wiki, Backpage - Wikipedia
