    smoked turkey replied to a thread sump pump advise in Our Town
    This may seem like a stupid thing to say, and it does say something about my intellect I suppose, but what ever pump you choose, make sure you keep it plugged in. It is a piece of equipment that is out of sight, and out of mind for most of us who...

    Thank you. The SAAMI drawings and an old Hornady manual seemed to say it too. Now to see if anyone wants to part with a set of RCBS dies for the 308 Marlin Express. Thanks.

    I would like to purchase either 308 Marlin Express dies or 307 Winchester dies. I prefer the dies to be RCBS. I am open to acquiring either set of dies and will chamber a new single shot barrel either way depending on what is offered. If you have a...

    smoked turkey replied to a thread Coffee in Our Town
    A few months back I accepted a challenge at church to 'fast' something one day a week I really like and use the time to pray for our upcoming revival. Up until that time I didn't realize how addicted I am to caffeine. Well I made it and we had a...

    smoked turkey replied to a thread Dream... in Our Town
    Pat this thread is FANTASTIC! God gives us a little glimpse of heaven by pulling the curtain back just so we can peek in. Like one of the earlier posts, my dad has been gone a long time (since 1996). I think about him and still miss him. I hope to...

    That is how it is supposed to be done. I say bravo to you for adding your bit of reactionary targets. Merle's mom and dad have done it right in the way they introduced their son to the great fun of shooting. I know it takes patience and effort to...

    Southern Shooter I'm envious of your selection. Wish I had that option. My light carry is a Chief Special 38. I also do the first round as a shot load for poisonous snakes, followed up with four "solids" which for me are full wad cutters. I am...

    Charlie, That is a very cool video on ole "Granny". I think RCBS wants to hire you to promote their products. The Green Machine appears to work pretty well under your watchful eye. Nice music IMHO. Keep up the good work.

    smoked turkey replied to a thread cement mixer in Our Town
    A lot of the "trick" to a good mixer is in the pulley ratio between the pulley on the motor and the pulley on the drum. I can't tell you what drum speed you need. As I recall mine had a large pulley on the drum and a smallish pulley on the motor. My...

    I think if you only shoot sensible cast boolit loads that it will be a long time before your new barrel is "broken in". That is because cast boolits are very easy on barrels. I know you will get a variety of opinions on when to clean the barrel on...
