Jim R: It looks like a piece of railroad track. I had one and it does make a good anvil.
Mike Robertson: Hi Hickok45 intend using hard cast Copper Hawke projectiles on my 308 at approx 2400fps would i have to use Gas checks when reloading ? Cheers
Michael Arnett: You probably already know that your red hunk of steel is a piece of railroad track. People actually use them as anvils as the high content of manganese and carbon actually cause the surface of the rail to become stronger the more it is used. Perfect for pounding!
Mark fivetwentyfive: that's a rail road track
Mark fivetwentyfive: you guys make the best videos
4998826p: When you say you don't know what that is, you're kidding, right? - It's train track.
Phill Huddleston: They also greatly reduce barrel leading especially with loads that are supersonic.
Logan Hartleib: It is a railroad track
Ronald Gutierrez: Railroad track
Matt Lord: Stop! hammer time
Floyd Miller: old train track
Kpex2016: Looks like a railroad track ..
Doug Covert: Hickok45, you're truly the best I really enjoy your videos, I am an enthusiast and wish I had the $$$ to shoot like nuts. What area of the country is that? You shoot at that back woods range and I really really love that, reminds me of my childhood where I used to shoot too. Of course not the same place, but we had woods like it...
wlentz1: standard train rail
albertapeet: I like that Anvil . I see that around here on occasion as well , maybe I will harvest a chunk for myself
Michael A1: Hickok, Another reason to use hard lead is so the lead doesn't lead up the barrel. soft lead will sort of strip in the barrel depositing lead in the rifling.
darktrooper4: looks like you got a pieced of rail! those make great targets especially if you put a clay disk or full water bottle behind the hole.
Scott McCandless: that makeshift anvil reminds me of a bit of i-beam but i not sure if that is what it truely is
.357Addict: I come back to this video every few months to see how many people actually think our friend Hickok did not know he had a hunk of railroad track. I sometimes wonder if he chuckled to himself after making the comment about not knowing the source of his anvil.
