    Didnít use mold release when I had Lee molds. That being said it was a happy day when I sold off my last Lee mold. They got me started and for that I am eternally grateful.

    Brand new Starline brass likes to gall. They send it to you completely clean, and I mean completely. A trip through a tumbler w/ some NuFinish or some case lube before sizing fixes the problem. Itís the only time Iíve had galling problems.

    Itís been this way my entire life. If the other person is that vulnerable they need to protect themselves from others. While I donít go out of my way to harm others, itís not my responsibility to protect them either. What Iíve realized, more...

    The numbers might as well be totally made up. If I have learned anything from this mess, it's that the experts are doing little more than throwing guesses at us. First we were told no masks should be worn! We were told this repeatedly. Now...

    My PTO is not differentiated between scheduled and sick. Companies need to realize that we are human beings w/ lives and things come up. If my company can deal w/ it if I call out sick, I have to physically be on site and am typically flying...

    It's funny, when I was in the Air Force we had as much paid time off as we needed when it came to illnesses. But in order to get the sick leave, we had to be seen by a doctor. Even with a bad cold or flu, no doctor would give more than 48 hours...

    Companies in the US need to give more PTO, period. Iím thankful I work for a company based in Sweden so I get their PTO. I started out at three weeks and am now up to five weeks after five years. If Iím sick, which I was this week, I stay home. ...

    If the numbers are not correct, how are they useful? I would think they each country that makes a report has an agenda behind the way they present the numbers, the US included.

    Apart from this whole Covid-19 thing, how many people have ever stayed home from school or work for 7-10 days to recover from a cold or flu? Not a whole lot. Is this the direction you think things should head? Are we all expected to don masks...

    Fine walnut blasting media. This was dirty range pickups, outside so some were muddy, after an overnight run. I have a wet tumbler setup and ultrasonic cleaner. To much work and time for no increased accuracy on target.

    You want fine. Iíd try what you have on hand. Worse case is that it takes longer to polish it. I use fine walnut blasting media from Harbor Freight. $1 a pound before the 20% off coupon. I used to run it in a cement mixer and needed a lot of...

    The new Edge is actually Chromium. Microsoft uses the base code, which is open source, and adds the feature they want. Both Chrome and Brave do the same thing. Chrome is a memory hog and I donít want it reporting back to Google on everything I...

    Havenít found the need to do this. One pass is enough. The issue has been case alignment or lack there of. It does not place the case in the same spot in the shell holder every time. This leads to the backup rod not wanting to enter the case. I...
