    GhostHawk replied to a thread . in Cast Boolits
    I started out with a center punch but getting them all the same was tough. A needle nose pliers and hand pressure can work. But again, it is hard to get the exact same amount of flare on each case. Me I like the Lee tool, and use it...

    Agreed. Last time I was in there I was trying to find a couple of the 15 or so boxes of 45ACP reloads that I think are in there. Found some cool stuff while I was looking, tho. ;-)

    Loading room? I have a loading room? When I get some time I'll have to ask Siri where it is. I'm figuring out she's a pretty sharp gal!

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Goose hunting in Hunting with CB's
    You never fool a goose twice the same way. They have eyes like hawks. I loved hunting them and had some great days. Limited out a couple of times. But it can be HARD. Before steel shot came along I loved dueces. Nice tight pattern and big...

    Prayer sent. I've seen the Narcotic drug issue from both sides. I also watched as my wife tried to remove Codeine from her list of drugs that she takes this summer. The worst part was that by the time she was clear of it and clean. That she was...

    For supply's it is hard to beat Ballistic's Products. http://www.ballisticproducts.com/ I would agree with Rancher about a good manual or 2. Find a recipe and stick with it. No juggling, no substitutions. Even a small change like a primer can...

    For me every time I had keyholing in 9mm going from .356 to .358 or larger solved it. Instantly. And groups went from shotgun patterns to better than FMJ factory rounds. Tighter pattern, closer to POA. But that is just my experience. YMMV. And...
