    km101 replied to a thread Missing: Cardinals in Our Town
    We even have a few cardinals here in the Lone Star State. Last spring a pair nested in our plum tree. They ran our young cat back into the house from the back yard. Now he sits on the patio and looks carefully to be sure they’re not around before...

    Yes, I own ten Star sizers, but three of them are on "lifetime loan" to really, really good friends. I have one sitting idle at the moment, but as soon as I finish rebuilding the heater base that had been in a bucket of water for who knows how...

    I buy them all the time at gun shows and off the auction sites. I just throw them in the tumbler and let them run until they're clean. If they're heavily encrusted, I hit them with a wire toothbrush prior to tumbling. It saves on a lot of extra...

    They had the new design at the SHOT Show this past January, and I asked the rep if this one would resist melting and becoming discolored. He said it would and to call their service department for a replacement. Hope this helps. Fred

    Contact Hornady direct by phone. They have a new hopper that solves that problem, and they'll probably send it to you for free. Hope this helps. Fred

    I've seen it first hand in a Model 73 Winchester, and I've seen pictures of a Model 94 Winchester that was destroyed by a magazine detonation.

    They would make an excellent bullet for the .30 Carbine Ruger Blackhawk, since it doesn't matter what the bullet shape is for a revolver, as long as it can fit in the cylinder. Hope this helps. Fred
