    I'd never seen one. Of the cars that even have a lighter any more, it would probably be on a 20amp fuse. I guess it would plug into the new generation 'power port' but typically, they're on a 20 amp fuse too. With a heater & fan both, I would...

    Call 'em and ask. Or better yet, go down there and ask.

    I've got a 190 GCSP I shoot in my .30-06. I've burned up a lot of 4198 and 3031 one in it, and it does well. I've gotten into 'the load' of 13 gr Red Dot recently. The more of it I shoot, the more impressed with it I'm becoming.

    After I 'unloaded' about 300 each of 5.56s awhile back because the powder measure & scale lied to me-- I get everything set up and adjusted, then take a break, come back, and look at & check it all again.

    You might try the official redneck method of bore slugging: Load a round down as low & slow as ya dare and still have it come out the barrel. Shoot it into a 5 gallon bucket of water with a big towel on the bottom. But be safe--- do it over...

    Try unplugging anything else on the line that Mom doesn't use anyway.

    They even did a good job of cleaning up the mess from those 7 people getting shot. How long do ya think the city will look like that if they emptied the previous 'protesters' out of the jail? Back to post #2: As Perry Mason would say, "Your...

    Same around here. Maybe we're not racist enough to get a demonstration.

    Without doing some digging, you don't see much about Red Dot and how versatile it is. It fits a bunch of handgun and shotgun loads. Do a search (that will take ya to a lot of archives) for 'The Load' for cast in rifles, especially .30 cal.

    I wouldn't trust it more than about 95%. The ballistic labs usually use a deep water tank to fire into for their tests to avoid as much distortion and 'squish' as possible. A 'low-ish' speed cast boolit is probably accurate enough to measure if...

    They should. The govt. speeded up the twist in the M-16 from 1:10 to be able to shoot/stabilize heavier bullets than the 50s & 55s from the old days. A down side is the more thin skinned & fragile bullets like Hornady's SX series will fly apart...

    People that have real winters must think our winter here is a poorly played, cruel joke. I can comfortably cast in the open garage with a long sleeve shirt or light jacket & jeans any time but the middle of Summer. Sweat dripping in the pot...

    Without reading the engine codes, or taking it to someone who works on them a lot- You'll need to start changing sensors, components, etc. one at a time until it runs right again.

    Blazers were Alum. & Berdan primed so they could produce a quality round as cheaply as possible. The main market was to shooters who weren't going to reload anyway. Not being able to easily reload Blazers was just a side effect. For people...

    3M's 'super weather strip adhesive' is the old school stuff that a lot of body shops use. Auto parts stores usually carry it.

    Surprised me too. When CCI Blazers came out, they were made to be produced as cheap as possible. It was to hold down the price for people that weren't going to reload any way. Just a wild guess, but if you're in the ammo shell case making...
