    Update.... Steve called a while ago. His parents are home, a bit stiff and sore, but safe and uninjured. He'll call me tomorrow with another update, and I'll send it on. Thanks!

    It sure is prettier.... I have some, mostly for my 30-06 A.I., and find some for the 9 mm, but in my confused opinion it doesn't last quite as long as plain brass. I know it doesn't in pistol and revolver ammunition. At least that's been my...

    It's something I wouldn't mind having... I'm trying to teach my wife about cast iron. She has some Japanese cast that works well, especially when she bakes cornbread, and they are light weight. She can't seem to understand that the cast needs to...

    I thought the NASA study was about a bumble bee.... As for patched RB in a muzzleloader, if you look at the base of a Maxi-ball after it is fired and the backside of a rb, you'll see little burn marks in the MB, and may find weave marks in a rb...

    As I stated before, and have most of the rest, I'd never had it happen before, but it did that day. Let me also state that after my chemotherapy my fingers are pretty numb, tingly feeling like my hand is asleep. I believe that is a leading factor as...

    Tom W. replied to a thread Dead rabbit in Our Town
    One New Years Day I was hunting with a friend, and the weather was cold and drizzly. I stumbled upon a rabbit in a den. It didn't even jump, just stretched out, got really stiff and died. The guy I was hunting with said it was a "haint", and as he...

    I had it happen once when I had my S&W model 19-4. Prior to that I never thought it was possible with a revolver. Surprise!.......

    I just saw another nice Ohaus 10-10, in box with dust cover, looked pristine, sell for $45 + ship. It was on one of those buy/sell/trade groups on facebook. There are some really smokin' deals in some of those groups.

    Years ago I bought my boys a Daisy .22 rimfire s/s. The buttstock is adjustable for LOP and it was scary accurate. I believe all of the boys possessed it at one time or another, handing it down as they got something different. The thing looks like a...

    The punch thing didn't do so well, so I pushed the pins in as deeply as they would go and filled the holes with J-B Weld. So far it's working.

    What he said^^^^^ It's a common thing, at least for me, for the LLA to build up in the seating die nose. The LLA needs to be really thin, almost looking like it's not on the boolit. My Ranch Dog mold suggests dipping the boolit, leaving the nose...

    The 45 is made from cast iron. The 450 has steel linkage and handles. The 45 will snap a handle or break off a bolt flange before the 450 would. But not if you size them in a Lee push thru first, it takes all the stress out of lubing. I very...

    The RCBS is the toughest, in my opinion. They all lube the same, using the same dies, but the 45 isn't for heavy work, and the 450 just doesn't have the leverage and linkage to take the abuse like a LAM does, again IMHO. Which is better? It...

    I remember seeing those ads back in the early and mid 60's. Dad had already bought me a Sears .22 bolt rifle that held 25 shorts, 20 longs, or 18 LR, so Momma said I couldn't have the Western Haig. I saved my pennies for some imported .22 ammo that...
