    Same for a CZ. Both CZ Custom and Cajun Gun Works sell kits that you can install in the gun.

    Go to Sage Outdoors if you want to purchase gas checks. I make most of mine. But for the oddball stiff where I only have one rifle in that caliber, I know itís horrible , I buy from them. They sell Gator and checks they make themselves. All of...

    I have in the past but they shut down. Another member used to order from the same place. It cost an additional $.35 a pound to have it delivered to a commercial business w/ a loading dock, which I worked at. Still cheap as I was paying $1.35 a...

    Good for plain base checks. You can try folding it over, doubling them up, but I wouldnít expect great performance.

    Just like most things you pay for what you get. Youíre going to spend hundreds for a padlock if you want security. Check out this site and then look at their prices:

    Did that include shotgun shells? This is the only ammo that has ever been outside a locked case in all of the Walmarts by me. I end up in a lot of them across the US as well. I donít recall ever seeing ammo outside of a locked case.

    Same here. Only thing you have to get used to is the mag release location. I donít shoot ARs enough to find it an issue. I thought this was a different thread that Iíd already posted in. What I really want is the setup above but in 10mm....

    It doesnít work w/ small charges at all. My results w/ larger charges were poor at best. I know some people love them. I bought blank discs and drilled them out for loads I use all the time. If I need fine adjustment I use a different measure.

    dragon813gt replied to a thread Opioid/heroin crisis? in Our Town
    The spike can be directly attributed to changing the formulation of OxyContin and the ensuing switch to alternatives. The last couple years have seen lots of deaths related to Fentanyl. Not everyone is well informed. People trust what the...

    Itís your understanding thatís incorrect. The crisis was around well before Obama became President. But no one was paying attention unless it effected them directly. Obama did not cause the opioid epidemic. They news outlets were reporting on...

    It started well before Obama. OxyContin came onto the market in 1996. Thatís was the beginning. The pill mills were in full effect during Bushís presidency. The shift from pills to heroin happened when Purdue changed the coating on OxyContin. ...

    It goes a lot deeper than that. The ďfeel good societyĒ does exist. But youíre gonna find most of these people on anti depressants. There isnít much correlation between taking them and moving on to opioids. They have their own set of issues. ...

    The 1894C I own is one of my favorite rifles. Does everything I need it to, including hunting duty. I recently built an AR in 9mm w/ a pistol length barrel. That one is really fun, is very cheap to shoot and has a much higher capacity. But what...

    I can assure you itís not fake. Itís hit a couple people in my family. These are people that you would never expect. They all have families and jobs. And some of them are very well off. It shows that opioids donít care if youíre poor or rich. ...

    Like all professions people specialize. Wether people want to admit or not thereís a huge market for AR rifles. It makes sense for someone to specialize in them. The ones by me advertise what work they perform. There are very few actual...

    If it doesnít shut off until it reaches setpoint itís going to overshoot. W/ a cold pot the control value, CV, is going to be 100% so it will always have the pot on. As the Process Value(PV), actual pot temp, gets close to the setpoint the CV...

    Those are not RCBS die #87552. A google search will show you what the die actually looks like. RCBS doesnít make push through dies. They look like Lee dies. They definitely have Lee lock rings on them.

    Out of the three listed two of them are the best. I say two because thereís two different types listed. The Star is the overall best for speed but itís not for everyone. Even w/ locknuts in every punch it takes longer to setup than the RCBS/Lyman...
