    Memorial Day here was nonexistent. No flags, no ceremonies, even the news didn't have anything. Normally the Boy Scouts put flags at the veterans cemetery. Nothing. Normally three parades on island. Nothing. Sad.

    I have a Lortone QT-NR tumpler. The motor get really hot. Even when not under load. I tried adding a computer fan to suck heat out, but nothing. I'm thinking the motor is just to small. It's rated at MHP30. 30 metric horse power. What is...

    Why is it boxes are so expensive to ship????? I found a place the would ship boxes to us. Shipping was more that the price of the box. I wish amazon carried this size of boxes.

    Haven't had homemade pork and beans in over 45 years. When we were young, camping family would make it for dinner. After all day in the sun, beach and ocean, nothing tasted better. With bread and butter, orange ice cream/7up mix to drink,...

    Have a Pacific Super Mag that someone cut one of the rams. Not sure why. If I could find a ram without the cut for the primer are, it would be much easier to do. Hoping to repair it and bring it back to normal.

    According to the Lee book, the scoop should be plunged base first into the powder, then leveled off with something. Scooping will give inconsistent fill in. I've tried it both ways, and dipping is much better. When I used to use the scoops, I'd...

    abunaitoo started a thread Sharps series rifle in Our Town
    I'm watching the Sharps series on utube again. What kind of rifles did they have????? It's a flint muzzle loader. They call it a rifle, but showing them load it, it seem like a smooth bore. Bite, prime, pour, spit, tap, aim, fire. Good series....

    Not to many 8mm molds out there. I have the four different Lee molds. The 324/175 and Custom Karabiner work well in my 98k. Still working on the Hakim.

    Amazon has the Lyman boxes. $27 for 10. Not all that bad. I'm still hoping someplace here carries boxes for uline. Those are exactly what I'm looking for. My long molds are kept in tall ammo cans.

    Can't seem to find the O-ring for the Lyman 450. It's the one for the lube pusher.
