    Bulldogger replied to a thread Shipping cost in Our Town
    My guess: State-subsidized shipping to encourage imports. China does it rampantly. It's making cheap CH electronics available for well less than they cost once imported conventionally for distribution. And sent direct-to-your-door. Bulldogger

    Bulldogger replied to a thread Shipping cost in Our Town
    Ground is allowed to take longer, so they charge less for it and in my experience it still moves relatively quickly. If you ship more than randomly, it may be worth getting a business account with FedEx or UPS and seeing if they give lower...

    I deal with this by hand-sorting the brass into separate piles by manufacturer. Then I note which ones take "extra" pressure to seat and adjust my priming behavior accordingly. Some take what I feel is excessive force, and I typically recycle...

    Bulldogger replied to a thread Virginia guys in Hunting with CB's
    +1, I have a former colleague with a hunting rental on a big parcel of farmland in Culpeper and he reports significant damage by hogs in the county. Messes up his whitetail hunting now and again. Hogs can be rude :-) Bulldogger

    Nice! Congratulations. I have a Gahendra Martini but have never tried using her. I figure she's earned her rest, after my restoration of her. Should fire though... Bulldogger

    Subsonic large caliber heavy projectile (200gr to me) will make a nice pop that can't be reliably tied to a gunshot, so nervous neighbors won't be sure. Large boolit throws some mass. As said by others shot placement is critical, no matter the...

    I also pressure can leftover meats when supply exceeds a few day's eating. The company I work for has a large conference center and from time to time badly overorders on catering. Cancelled flights, bad RSVP counting sometimes all add up to trays of...

    Bulldogger replied to a thread Meat grinder in Cookin' Recipe's
    If that doesn't work out, do what I did to get my grinder. Find a drop ship reseller on eBay, the kind that just automatically lists items for auction but almost never has them in stock, just has them drop shipped from a warehouse source that...

    I haven't done any myself but in a package deal on a bunch of old reloading/gun stuff I got a .44 conversion cylinder custom made by some old gunsmith in the Midwest, Northern Indiana if memory serves. The papers in the package were old enough for...

    Bulldogger replied to a thread Meat grinder in Cookin' Recipe's
    Try emailing their customer service or contacting the number/website on the grinder. Assuming it has one. Could ask Gander Mtn if not. I broke two plastic gears in my MTN Gearsmith and the vendor sent me replacements at a very decent price. ...

    Keep at it! There is a learning curve as you dial in your printer's physical quirks, the software settings and your choice of material. In my experience, every filament material supplier has a little different recipe, so different spools differ in...

    I have a large Japanese flowering quince bush inherited from the previous owner of my house. It produces small fruits, maybe 2 inches in diameter. They must be good, because they disappear before they are fully ripe. We have a lot of squirrels...

    I second the notion that only time in the woods will teach you about what happens in the woods. As to WHEN, there is some good lore about hunting by the phases of the moon and when it is at apogee and perigee, not full/new or sunrise/sunset. Deer,...
