    I still kick myself for passing on one for $350 that looked to be almost perfect . I have several other 25s and reload for them. I know this will probably start a fire storm but the little 25 is under appreciated as a defensive round. I carry one as...

    If you play with the Lee ( a smooth file and some wet dry paper on the plunger ) it will throw constant charges below 1 grain. I use .8 grains of bullseye on 25cap and it worked great. If you take it apart and lap it it will leak a lot less. I will...

    I can't afford to shop there anymore . Wife used to get me to go once in a while for the fudge and it was good. She now makes it at home even better. Haven't been in the store in quite a few years now.
