    If they're not a bank, what are they doing selling you checks? Their rates are high, their service is lousy, their reputation for service has tanked. I never heard of taking the MO to a bank. If ya have an account at the bank, why not use a...

    It appears I am part of the Lucky few, who live in a small town with a post Office that is rarely crowded with patrons. More than once, I had a MO that was too large for the cash in the drawer, so the clerk just asked the Post Master to get more...

    USPS MOs are a PITA on both ends. I only use them if no other payment is accepted. PP may be anti-gun, but at least on the buying end it's hassel free. For us that have to make a special trip to the PO it can be a real problem and if it is a...

    My Granny made the absolute best black walnut cake I ever had. She only made it on special occassions and I never missed one. At least for me, accumulating enough to use cracking with a hammer, is a lost cause.

    Lost both my parents over 10 years ago while holding their hands, and both had lived long full lives, but the missing is forever. Alzheimer's robs both the patient and the family. Glad you had that last memory of him to cling to. Prayers sent...

    I've got an Eddystone with a fat boy stock and front and rear volley sights, so it was probably an early one. The Brits preferred sloppy chambers and bores so that they could use ammo from any tinpot factory in the Commonwealth and that it would...

    I didn't really modify one. Mine is a old used Dake (made in USA) that I got at a scrap iron yard, I cleaned it up and since it came without a Anvil plate, I made a custom Anvil from two 3/8 steel plates, to hold a FCIII gas check die.

    Just whatever you feel comfortable with According to NOE data for red dot and a 155gr they list from 2.6 to 2.8 Which seems a little low compared to the data you guys have listed and this bullet is made to be loaded long so it's not a case...

    I totally agree. and I'll add, a deformed boolit will still be accurate enough at short range. But once you start shooting past 25 yards the poor accuracy will be obvious.

    Wow! That would be great! I am using the 155gr mold but the boolits actually weigh 157grains so if you could do the 147's or the 158's that would be really great! Thanks!
