    Perhaps instead of asking for the "best" loads, we should be asking for the best starting point. chambers, leades, throats all factor into this bore and groove dimensions, number of grooves, width and barrel length again have a effect. Brass also...

    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...

    Tips are for exceptional service....not for just showing up at work. If your order was not acceptable you should have asked for a supervisor and complained.....dont let them get away with that nonsense because they are just being accommodated when...

    I commend your patriotism jonp. I usually replace my flag twice each year. Bought the replacement this year a few weeks before Memorial Day. Spent just shy of $50 on a 3' x 5' that's supposed to be of commercial quality. How colorfast it is...

    Use care adding the MS as you can create an explosive atmosphere, in an enclosed space, compleat with static electricity. Also, too much can cause the dirt to stick to the brass like specks of hard wax, which is extremely hard to remove. I add a...

    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.

    Everybody forms opinions on misinformation at one time or another. I don't fault Charles for his anti-gun leanings. His foresight in most matters was spot on, and his intellect made him a person to pay close attention to. Above all he had real...

    Over a couple years I mined and smelted over 7 tons of range lead and they considered it a favor. I sold in excess of 400 lbs of jacket material and scrap brass. What other hobby pays you to participate? Kinda proves you can save money casting,...

    We recently had one in the shop doing the same thing. A complete dissasemble and clean fixed it. So I'd start there and while you have it apart you can look for worn parts. Something should show up.
