1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

  2. Attention: We have put together a thread with tips and a tutorial video to help with using the new software. Please take a moment to check out the thread here: Trapshooters.com Tutorial & Help Video.

    Not sure what caliber you are looking at. If it is a 22 K-Hornet the K stands for Kilborn who was the person credited for creating an "improved" 22 Hornet. This was normally done by reducing the taper of the case and sharpening the angle of the case shoulder and/or moving it forward. This allowed the round to hold more powder and made it more efficient with the newer smokeless powders. So the velocity was more than the original round was capable of (thus improved)
