    For several years there was only a locked empty case, and shotgun shells on a pallet in the open. Now even the 22LR space is ful, but ya gotta be carded period.

    Just because the computers made it possible, is absolutely no reason for the anemic print. I can't read it and not being a comic book, the print is more important than the big HD colorful pictures. While I understand that smaller print saves extra...

    My old 73 chevy pickup still displays a "Don't blame me, I voted for Dole" bumper sticker. Young folks ask me, "Who is that"?

    During simpler times we conversed with each other any time conditions allowed. Now it's hard to get the attention of others without electronic connections. We've lost our ability to spell out thoughts without a special code. In the evenings we...

    mold maker replied to a thread Tinnitus ! in Our Town
    The only time it's more than a nuisance is at night when the normal background noise dies. Then the crickets all join in to make it hard to drift off to sleep. A boring TV program drowns it out, and the boredom puts me to sleep. I was always...

    I now know what it is like to have that problem. It started about a year ago for me. Sounds to me , like a thousand crickets all singing at the same time with a slight wavering pitch. Haven't found anything to help with it yet. For now just putting...

    It's the same info either copied or rewritten, hidden among the advertisements. If the advertisers are paying, and we are charged an exorbitant price for paper and ink, why bother? The printed media was at one time, the only way to find info. Its...

    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.

    The only way to totally avoid the annoying calls is to get rid of the phone. Remember when there were no bells ringing to disturb your dinner/peace. Who needs the aggravation?

    9.3X62AL; Now this sounds like fun: 60.0 grains of WC-860 (full case in W-W brass) gives a satisfying cannon-BOOM report, not quite 2100 FPS over the time-clock, and grouping remains in the 1.5"-class. I don't have WC860 but I have 5010...

    I hopes that it helps! Nice mold overall but the lack of fill-out at the base of the bullet takes some of the joy out of the experience. Thanks again, Mark

    I ran a line from where the mold blocks meet outward from the cavity, one line running outward from each of the 2 cavities. I did not run the line through the rebate in the cavity for the gascheck just up to the rebate. Thanks, Mark

    have a photo of how you do it? How much of a break line? This is on the top of the mold right where the halves meet, right? Just lightly relive the joint with a little sand paper? Thanks for the input!!
