    Well, they say the best laid plans... We had planned on moving our camp this morning, from May Creek to a little mountain lake - but it's way to wet to be tearing down and setting up! So common sense has prevailed, and we're going to stay at May...

    Frank, Did you get a chance to talk to Bullshop? He was set up across from the Masonic hall. Had a small selection of cast boolits and lubes.

    The two Savage "four-tenners" have an extractor on them that you line up with the extractor of the barrel you put them in. The custom barrel inserts would need to have the empty removed by a fingernail, or something similar. Or you could probably...
