    I have had cartridges carried in the outside pocket of a nylon cordura pack too wet to fire. The primers were not sealed. I also wet down some primed cases with WD 40 then let them dry for a week, All 6 fired though they were shot as primer only.

    MT Gianni replied to a thread Groucho marks in Our Town
    I was reading a paper once on building when the author stated that defenestration isn't just an act of humor made famous by the Marx brothers. I still find that a hilarious statement. defenestration= the act of throwing something out the...

    If you are cutting down the 7.62x40 brass from LC or other military cases, your necks may need to be thinned as well. If you are using ready-made from Wilson or other brass sellers than disregard.

    I last bought a medium flat rate box of 40 mixed brass for $35, shipping included and run through a bulge buster die. He was happy to see it go. That was around 2010.

    While that is true a report of a month long outage to the PSC would result in a hire order in most States. The monopoly was given to the Utility with the expectation of prompt service. Failure to maintain such can and should result in the loss of a...

    MT Gianni replied to a thread 6mm Donaldson Wasp in Our Town
    I spent a long time studying the 219 Wasp data and almost thought I wanted one as it really beat the 223 for economy and velocity. Then I read the data that mentioned 29" bbl. Several companies will chamber you a contender bbl for around 3 bills.

    Many have placed personal restrictions on the minimum size used on game with cast. For me with deer it is 7mm, for some others 6.5, most tend to use 30. At some point the meplate gets too small to effectively disperse tissue. For me that is...

    If the Jesus came to me and gave me the test of Thomas, then told me the Bible was not wholly correct I would surely believe him. To do otherwise would be like worshiping a golden calf not the True God.

    You can use the same button but the hornet may not fit in the rifle M Die. The reason for two part #s may be the shorter case needs the pistol die.
