    Willbird gave me some 7.62 x 25 duds a few years back. I pull the bullets and dump powder into 30-30 case and seat the 85 grain bullets. They shoot great and are a blast!

    A lot of kitty litter comes in square or rectangle buckets and most are smaller than a 5 gallon bucket. Milk crates work well also.

"The .30-06 is never a mistake." Townsend Whelen

"THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."
Thomas Paine
