    Thin Man replied to a thread .30-30 110 grain loads in Leverguns
    I have an H&R Topper in 30-30 that refuses to group any bullet weight of 150 grains or higher. One day I loaded some 110 FMJ bullets for this rifle just to make noise and smoke (think cabin fever cure). The rifle that had given me shotgun patterns...

    Thin Man replied to a thread 375 win brass available in Leverguns
    I just got (opened it today) an e-mail notice from Starline that they were taking orders for 375 Winchester brass. This message had a tab to click to see pricing, etc. However, the tab did not respond to being clicked. I sent Starline a message...

    I will occasionally look at Armslist.com for "in-state" commercials by both sellers and buyers. Firearms, accessories, ammo, lots to see. Occasionally I have seen some screaming deals that I didn't have the time to drive over to buy (very far away...

    Thin Man replied to a thread National Peanut Festival in Our Town
    Broke here too, but a 100 mile one-way ride isn't that far. Several years ago a local TV station was showcasing what they called "One Tank Trips" for a round trip to and from their base broadcasting station. It was really nice to see all of the...

    I found that CCI Blazer brass in .357 Sig has a really small flash hole. That small hole will allow a conventional small diameter RCBS primer decapping pin to pass through the hole and remove the primer, but then it grabs and holds the pin so...

    Take a look at Brownell's squib rod, part # 084-175-357. I have found these rods are so close to the bore diameter they can be more than a little snug in several barrels. If one of these can catch any of those remaining jackets that will get you...

    With about 190 molds in my inventory (along with all of the other rubbish that comes along with this activity) I have more invested than I would ever tell. Yes it has been pricey to gather all of these. On the other hand, I just hope I get a "fair...

    Back in 1975 (yup, that far back) we bought a new-to-us home and also a land line from AT&T. SWMBO was happy to have our own phone number and we gave it out to all our friends. Then we started getting calls for a business that went by the name of...

    Buy a reasonable quality vise and cry only once. Cheap tools can lead to frustration and added expense when you have to replace them. Get 4-5 inch size with a swivel base. Vise jaw pads can be found in many locations. Lead sheets, aluminum,...

    Just looking at the pics of that "repair" make me angry. This never should have happened. For any company to allow their techs to do this type of repair service is a complete outrage. For this to come from a company with a good reputation makes...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Bullets in a fire in Our Town
    A local sporting goods store burned down here many years ago. They had a lot of ammo on their shelves and some of it "popped off" in the fire. When this began happening the firemen trained their hoses on the ammo stacks and got that stopped. None...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Friends in Tennessee in Our Town
    There are a lot of locally owned producers in TN. One of my favorites is Benton's Country Hams near Madisonville in the Knoxville area. They started small and have grown to be recognized all over the continental US by those people who appreciate...
