    Amazon is going to be handled in short order. It will most likely come from the EU first. Their practice of using third party sellers data to produce products that undercut the third party sellers is the epitome of anti-competitive practices. ...

    Almost all my brass is military brass and much of it from machine guns. When I load 7.62 NATO, I can get rounds that are difficult to chamber. I assume a small base die can address that. I am planning to feed a few ARís and two bolt...

    Lloyd, you have stated the obvious. A more powerful pistol caliber is always a better performer. I never bought into the rationale that "with proper bullets the 9mm performs as well as the .40". Put those same designed bullets in the .40 and it...

    I used to load 20k 12 ga year. The "cheap" hulls were loaded once and I used them for doubles...shoot and pitch. The only "cheap" hull that I would load multiple times was the Gun Club. Buying those cheap hulls makes no sense to me. Go to a...

    I am a satisfied user of Amazon Prime. Living in a very remote area is it a great option for me. 25 miles to a town of 4,000 and selection is limited. I can buy almost anything I need and have it shipped to my door in a couple of days. I have...

    Thatís what happens when you shoot 9mm out of a 40 S&W gun. They go bang but donít eject. Donít ask me how I know.

    Prime is $119 a year. I have it specifically for the video content. Itís cheaper than Netflix and Hulu and has better original programming. The shipping is just a bonus to me. Everything is a mess in the world right now. Amazon, major...

    God requires evil. He created it either directly or indirectly. There was nothing in the beginning and God created everything. We can speculate on why, but that can be upsetting to some.

    Youíd have to bump them up to use them in a 357. W/ large throats and bores in 9mm Iíd be tempted to bump them up for a few of my pistols.

    I did. Donít know what happened but I had a lot of stuck cases. Iím not a fan of spray lubes for bottle neck cases and Iím going to blame it. I caused the issue to persist by not switching over to mink oil(lanolin) sooner. Once I did no more...

    My work schedule was screwed up today so I was home by 11am. Gave me time to try full length sizing LC 5.56 brass. I had the press broken down and put away. I appreciate how quick it is to setup. Only took a few minutes. Sprayed the cases w/...

    People make errors in their theology by thinking of what they'd do if they were God. Their idea about the existence of evil is that if God is all powerful, all knowing and essentially good, he should eliminate evil. As we observe, this is not the...

    I buy Lee first. If they donít work I will buy something else. If Lee doesnít make it, like Lyman M-Dies, I buy another brand. I let results on target determine how well the dies are doing. I donít shoot for competition and Iím not chasing...

    To try and work out kinks w/ the press. Itís not like it hurts to run them through. I was not able to set primers in some of them. And judging by feel when they were run on the swager the pockets were tight.

    In the case of Israel and punishment, she was sent prophets before and after the events. This was just an example I used from the Bible showing someone could be an instrument of God's work and not know. If a human authority is correcting/punishing...

    "God's authority" is not meant to suggest everything that person does is correct, morally or otherwise. Someone can do the work of God without knowing they are doing so or even caring about God's work at all. An extreme example is that Assyria...

    The issue w/ them is always duty cycle. That one says five minutes on, five minutes off. Cases obviously donít require that much time. And for that price I highly doubt it can sustain for five minutes. If youíre looking at production time there...

    Sweat is of no concern. You have to dump a good amount of water in the pot to be a hazard. A bead of sweat will evaporate the instant it hits the lead.

    Used it again today. First up was a gallon freezer bag full of RP 223 brass. No issues when it came to depriming. May have had a few primers hang up but there were hundreds of cases in the bag so it wasnít a big deal. Next up was swaging the...
