    Battis replied to a thread SD trip in Our Town
    2 summers ago we drove from Minot down to Rapid City and saw quite a lot (1800 miles total driving). We didn't go to Devils Tower but we will this time. I'll also check out the other places listed above. This time tomorrow I should be in...

    Battis started a thread SD trip in Our Town
    We're heading back to SD this Saturday for a week. Lots of places I want to see again - Black Hills, Deadwood, Badlands, Devils Tower, Custer Park. What about the Thunder Basin park? It looks like a good place to visit. Any other suggestions? ...

    One warning about taking Glucosamine - if you have a shellfish allergy, as I do, you should not take Glucosamine. I found this out the hard way.

    Battis replied to a thread 9mm Largo in Factory Rifles
    I did a little more experimenting, with the Astra and the Destroyer, and the problem was the shape of the cast bullet I was trying. Both guns take .355" jacketed bullets, but neither would take the cast bullet due to its shape. That's why chamber...

    Battis replied to a thread 9mm Largo in Factory Rifles
    I've looked just about everywhere - the smallest diameter I could find was .355". I'll probably get a Lee sizer. Or, I could keep pulling the Winchester bullets once the duds run out. Fun...

    Battis started a thread 9mm Largo in Factory Rifles
    I have an Astra 400 and a Spanish Destroyer carbine, both in 9mm Largo. The Astra came with 250 rds that were mostly duds, so I got some 9mm Largo brass and loaded rounds with the bullets from the duds. The bullets are 125 grs jacketed, and...

    I've been looking at a powder can like that in an antique shop that's selling for around $125, and it's tempting. It doesn't have any powder in it, but if it did, and I bought the can, I'd dump the powder into another container and display the can...

    I loaded up a handful of 9mm Largo rounds for testing last week, using Starline brass and the jacketed HB bullets (.354" diameter, 125 grs) from pulled "vintage" rounds (250 rounds that came with my Astra 400, mostly duds). I use 3.2 to 3.5 grs of...
