    The Rokon seems expensive but neat. I would think about a used UTV for about the same investment. It would be safer and more versatile but need a trailer to haul it. BTW recently I sold both my UTV's and got a used Jeep Wrangle 2 DR. It will...

    I had some 35 year old .38 WC loads lubed with 50/50. Many failed to fire. I would be more concerned with traditional lubes causing an issue over time than PC. BTW, I still do not PC so I am not a fan of the process....as it is slower and I would...

    If I could shoot lube free bullets I would. I like the concept of PC bullets but I like the speed of using a Star a lot more, so I live with a bit of smoke. Big Deal! As to "dirty" powder, I don't see many issues with what I shoot. Anyway,...

    I struggle with things like this. It is too easy to rationalize and try to make things "fit". God cannot know all things and how things will happen and then be guilty of "changing his mind". The more plausible answer is that God is not...

    I must be weird as I see two extremes quite a bit. Many think they need a 7mm Mag for deer and the opposite....even a .22 will kill a moose if you can place the shot. One of my neighbors wants to hunt elk with his .243 and has been told by a...

    I use both. ANY load someone posts is ALWAYS checked against manufacturers data. Some loads I never verify before a loading session. 2.8 gr of HP for the .38, 42 gr of Varget with the 165 GameKing in the hunting .308, 17 gr of Promo in the 12...

    I fear ridicule, so refrain from mentioning God to people I do not know well. And I know that is wrong and not what a Christian should do.

    Good news. I found a well rated firm that charges $200/hr and they estimate the cost will be closer to $1000 than $2000. They have a prenuptial specialist. Timing is less than two months and totally dependent on how quickly we can pull together...

    I am surprised the 336 is not sold. Seems like a fair price on a great cast caliber.

    It must be a Michigan thing but I am with Lloyd. I applaud the amazing skill needed to accomplish this but see little value in it. If I want strengthin a single stage press I use the RC....and if I want accuracy, I use the Co-Ax. For me it...

    Called a local attorney to get a prenuptial agreement drawn up. He asked some questions about my net worth and told me that I could expect the process to take 3-12 months and the cost is a flat rate of $5000. There are two firms that do this...

    You do not sound like you will be shooting many cast bullets. For lube, you can pan lube or even finger lube if doing a few dozen at a time. (Cannot see shooting many more than ten at a sitting with that thing) The Lee sizer is cheap. Gas...
