    GhostHawk replied to a thread Linux advice? in Our Town
    I have a win 8 laptop that upgraded itself while in sleep mode to win 10. By the time we discovered it we were too late to roll back. I had some issues learning to install mint but eventually I learned enough to get the job done. I don't miss win...

    I'm glad that you shared your burdens with us. Life sucks and then you die. Fair amount of truth to that one. But no one tells you that getting old sucks worse. However I think it is better than the alternative. Try to find the joy, if in...

    Save them until some point where you are low or out of LP primers. Or sell them as JB in Mn said. I am slowly accumulating a zip lock bag of them myself.

    IMO silvereagle nailed it. Trouble is consistency. Getting the exact same pressure, fuel, temp the same every time is going to be tough. Change any variable by any significant amount and you could be changing your trajectory. Powder is easier.

    If I size (I often do not) I have no issue running it through the sizer a bit on the sticky side. Worst case scenario is it ends up in the lube grooves. I have often sized half an hour after casting and lubing with BLL. If I am pushing for speed I...

    Bullet fit is king, worry about the other variables after you know you have that sorted. 1-3 thousandths over groove is what I aim for. Most cases 1 or 2 but a given gun needs what it needs. I have a couple of 9mm guns that get .359 or .3595...

    I'm with M-tecs, I'd pay more for a 6" barrel with adjustable rear sight. Interesting though that they see Heritage selling enough of the rough riders to make them want a piece of that action. And the Bronze

    35 shooter replied to a thread Sheridan Blue Streak in AirGuns
    If your lucky, it may just need a good oiling on the pump head to get it pumping again, but may well need re sealing. “Baker Airguns”, “Mac1 Airguns” might be good folks to contact if you can’t do it yourself. You can google them. Gateway to...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Sheridan Blue Streak in AirGuns
    5mm, it should say on the yellow ammo boxes. Halfway between .177 and .22. Should be fixable, but do some googleing first so you know what your doing. I bought my Blue Streak in the early 70's, have fired thousands of rounds through it, most...
