    They probably only got enough to fill some of their backorders so they never had them in stock for present orders. I had mine on backorder for 6 weeks.

    It looks bad, but it's not. I kept working for about 20 minutes after it happened. When I went inside my wife looked at me and with a gasp said what happened to you, are you OK? I went and looked in a mirror and saw what is in the picture. When...

    I can't find it with search, but what they did was to fill the barrel behind the bullet with water then chamber a round and shoot it out. water is not compressible and will not be seen as an obstruction. I don't remember the powder charges used.

    The large pistol primers are also shorter than the large rifle primers. They are going to move back to the bolt face. If you beveled the edge of the primer pocket too much, the shorter large pistol primer may leak some gas.

    Wait 12 hours and re adjust the die. It will then be on the other side as the earth has rotated 1/2 turn.

    If it is just for intermittent use of low consumption air tools, a one cylinder 2 hp with a 20 gal tank will work. If it is for moderate use of the higher consumption tools. go for a 2 cylinder 5 hp, 30 gal tank minimum.

    Make your pizza on unleavened bread from the bread machine. Will that work? Wife makes pizza dough in the bread machine. Venison pizza is great. I have not had a commercial pizza in 30 years.
