    EAR GAUGES and Tribal tattoos on non tribal people, also having metal all over the face of a beautiful woman. People who turn left in front of others instead of waiting their turn.

    Never tried making our own. Too easy to just buy it. I am guessing the difference in taste is probably awesome. Mine's on the stove too, as a side note, is it OK to add green food coloring to the Modelo beer..... asking for a friend.

    I had a Dillon Square deal conversion that I was not using and Dpmsman was looking for the one I had. I contacted him, he wanted it and the deal got done. Nice doing deals with folks like this! Strait shooter in my book!

    Agree the website is harder to use than the last version, at least for myself. Guess I am a bit of a dinosaur as I do like paper catalogs.

    I ended up with the same question. I got several hundred CB's unsized at a sale. They're .458 and weigh in at 240, they are a KT bullet. I would like to run them out of my S&W Mod 25 but my star said it didn't like sizing them that much. So am...

    Press it out and run it into a Napa store that usually gets it for me. I’ve bought some oddball stuff for machinery from them that any other store can’t seem to do.

    Don you are headed in the right direction keep going. The 1.100" seems like that was a bit on the short end. All guns are different, but my experience was that longer functioned better in my pickier guns than short and the extra volume is easier...

    I use 3.5 gr of BE with pretty good results in my Glocks. That's with both cast and jacketed. I will admit that in my younger days I was more liberal with the powder, and I see that some say primer signs are not a big deal, but they were to me. I...

    So, if I am reading this right, it would be OK to use Mag pistol Primers (CCI350) as long as the load is not considered a hot load?? The only way I have of checking for high pressure is the recoil, and maybe primers flattening or piercing. Maybe I...
