    Hopefully the show went well. Another site member here (Texas by God) attended one down his way. A lot of black rifles and wonder 9's. Reloading components where about what he was expecting. Murphy

    I don't own any assault weapons. However, I do own firearms with which to explain the error of ways to any transgressors at a distance.

    I picked this up at a local gun shop yesterday. I hadn't known it was up for auction at the time. This shop is smaller than the average bathroom, but he gets some very nice quality guns in the door. ...

    That would be awesome! I would like to note, at one time side chatrooms could be created. That way, we could have a 'Clean' chat, and a side room. Kind'a like a mullet haircut, business up front, party in the back. Murphy

    Jim try screwing the die in another 1/4 turn, that should give you a cam over on the press handle and may be all that is needed to bump the shoulder back another thou. It sounds like you may have a nice min headspace chamber, if it is concentric...

    I'm not surprised that 300,000 rounds of 9mm sold out in 6 minutes or less. I realize that not everyone is a fan of Gunbroker, nor cares to buy or sell on there. However, it seems to be a good gauge as to what is happening in ammunition pricing and...

    I would contact Jeff Bartlet or Pat Mc Donald and ask if they ever sold SMP226 powder, these guys are the gurus of non-cannister powders, and being such they can give you an idea of burn speed, especially if you have a lot number. I have had Jeff...

    Great old stuff, quiet entertaining. Sorry to hear of your accident and wish you a full recovery. I'm retired now, but through my work history most of the men I've seen maimed or killed on the job, wasn't due to their their own fault. Murphy

    I'm not sure yet. Might be a mint, unmolested Triple Lock 'Target Version', might be a large flat rate box of Waksupi's lube grooves. I'll keep you updated. Murphy

    I never thought it was a good choice for reduced loads, too heavily deterred for good ignition. There was a guy that was shooting CBSA matches with it in a 32-40 single shot if my memory serves, doing quite well it seemed, went by Frankeore or some...
