    lightman replied to a thread Makes me cringe... in Cast Boolits
    I'm not a big fan of Youtube. I've seen too many videos that show dangerous stuff being done. Not to say that there is not some good stuff on there. I store my sized and lubed bullets in cigar boxes. Stacked neatly in rows with cardboard between...

    lightman replied to a thread what size truck in Our Town
    My Wife actually has the answer to this. She wants me to get rid of the tractor and trailer! I use the tractor to mow at deer camp. And the loader makes moving a deer stand pretty easy. I also host a Dove Hunt in September and use the tractor to...

    Speer manuals #1 and #4 have actual collector value. The others have great informational value. YMMV.

    lightman replied to a thread what size truck in Our Town
    Not trying to argue here but I'm just curious. What model truck do you have and what engine? And what mileage do you get? I'm probably going to buy one more heavy truck before I get rid of my tractor and trailer.

    The way I use to get a gas check out if a casing is poke it with a punch to get it sideways, then hook it with a paper clip that has a small hook bent on the end. I will look a good half hour for a casing, then mark the spot and come back...

    I haven't been in the loading room much lately but today I pulled up some music on YouTube and deprimed about half a tub of range brass. It felt good too, to get back out there!

    Ha, I thought this was going to be about shooting 45 ACP revolvers! LOL! But yes, I'm also a member of that club. As are my Wife, a Son, and a few friends. I never got stitches but thinking back on it, I probably should have.

    I'm just guessing, but maybe you sealed them up before the temps adjusted back to room temp? I use the hot sun during the Summer and the oven during the Winter and have not had this problem.

    I'm not a big Lee fan but I'm also not a Lee basher. Most of my equipment is RCBS, Redding, Dillon, Wilson or some high end custom stuff. I have a few Lee tools too. Here are a few of my unbiased (I hope) observations. I have had a set of their...

    By my calculations you should not be having enough voltage drop to cause your problem. At 25 ft a 14 gauge cord should only have 1.40% loss so your 12 gauge cord should be good to go. You could check the voltage at the end of the core to verify. ...

    Lee is good for some things. I like their hand press and magnum melter. I like their perfect powder measure. Saying they are just as good because they accomplish the task is no different than saying a china wrench is just as good as a SK...

    Thats a good idea. I have never heard of that. I keep a master list of mine at home, stored in 2 different places. With a phone call and a few minutes I could have mine.

    Personally I'd keep the ammo and occasionally shoot a few just for the enjoyment. I wouldn't burn it through a semi auto just cause.
