    725 was kind enough to offer up some 6.5x55 brass. I have looked high and low for some neat brass I knew I had, but it is apparently lost in the reorganization! So instead, I have some casting metal which I can find! It will be a drawing to...

    After taking the screens off 3 windows to discourage squirrels from my bird feeder this Spring, one learned to play acrobat and do a flip under the gutter and land on the feeder. It's so comical, I just fill the feeder half way and enjoy his...

    My Dad gave me a LYMAN #358495 2cav about a week after I got out of the Service in 1975. I had aquired an old COLT COMMANDO while on the east coast. He gave me a LYMAN #452460 1cav three months later when I got my first .45 Auto. I got the handles...

    TexasbyGOD, That "unidentified" bullet looks like a LEE .429-200-RF. By weight listed they might be a bit soft. I thing LEE uses a HARDBALL alloy for checking their molds. I finally got around to fixing up some messed up .44WCF ammo I loaded...

    I agree on the LYMAN #358156 Cast of #2 or harder. Drive it at max with no worry in an I frame COLT. Use a good crimp on Gas Check. SEAT THOSE GAS CHECKS WITH A GAS CHECK SEATER ON A LYMAN OR RCBS LUBI-SIZER. Getting them on straight & flat, square...

    mold maker replied to a thread Fast food tipping?? in Our Town
    A tip is supposed to be a personal "Thank You" for above and beyond service. I grew up in an era when 10% was a good tip. If the service you are tipping is the same, why do they expect a higher percent in a tip? The food/hotel price has increased...

    Unless you've experienced that level of chronic pain, you can't imagine the need. I passed a 5X7 mm kidney stone and had 9 teeth pulled at one setting without anything but regular ibuprofen. That said, the constant pain in my lower back is another...

    Sounds like something a liberal politician would think up to solve a none existent problem. Sometimes corporate lawyers have to do something to make themselves indispensable.
