    I love Garlic. Roasted is great. My favorite is the big heads that are cut in half and thrown in the pot with the crawfish and all the other seasonings. When the basket is dumped on the table, I will hunt out the garlic and eat over half a cup of...

    I was using a RCBS hand priming tool and tried the RCBS bench priming tool. It worked great, but it took forever to fill the tubes, so I went back to the hand primer. Later, I got a Frankford Arsenal vibra prime to fill the tubes on a Dillon 550 and...

    I have been sharpening them on a grinding wheel for over 50 years. I guess the sharpeners work fine too, but I have a bench grinder with a fine wheel.

    I use the lee 358-125-RF powder coated and sized .357 in my M&P 9. It shoots great, but I had to send it to DougGuy to have it throated so that the .357 would chamber. Also had it crowned. It shoots great.

    I have the B&D 12 in. It does not have the battery life your Stihl has, but I have 2 batteries. I also have the 40V string trimmer. This battery technology sure has come a long way.

    I had the same problem with the mixed range 380 brass that I bought. The MAXTech and several other headstamps had too thick brass to load a cast sized to .357 and chamber. They will chamber when loaded with a .355 jacketed or plated. I bought 1,000...
