    I leave mine plugged in and turned on. The only time it gets turned off is when the power goes out. This has been my SOP for the last 10 years at least... And contrary to the information that came with it, the fluorescent lights don't bother it...

    I bought an NEF Handi Rifle when my youngest son was maybe two or three years old, back in 1981 or so. I don't recall any brass having to be discarded. I did have to learn to load on my own, so I got quite a few lube dents in the shoulder area, but...

    My late wife bought an enameled Lodge CI pot that I used to make chili in. I'd put the burner on low and fill it with whatever struck my fancy that day. It was always delicious...... One day before she passed she turned on the burner under it and...

    I lube the inside of the case with set of Midway brushes and some RCBS lube. The outsides , depending on what I'm loading, will get rolled on the lube pad or some Imperial wax. I found out that too much lube on the shoulders WILL cause lube dents,...

    Tom W. replied to a thread Carnauba wax in it? in Boolit Lube !
    I just stuffed a few wax wrappers into the lubrisizer, I supposed they would melt and blend with whatever was in there at the time... I did this off and on for a few years. Nothing scientific, nor was there a lot of wax at one time. The cheese was...

    I did have an H&R model 999 that would shoot the first two or three rounds into the same hole, then it would start to walk sideways. It turned out that the rear sight wasn't fitted properly, and I could see where the screws were not cut straight. I...

    The two Glocks I had were Gen 4 9mm, and they would fire anything I'd feed them.I mostly used the Lee 124 gr (?) TC sized to .358. These also shoot well in my Ruger LC9s Pro. My CZ 75 SP-01 is a different beast. It won't shoot but a very few...
