    I dunno about the gen of the tool. All of the brass was fired in a M1 Garand at a range I went to and altho I can't remember just now it had an X on the headstamp.

    I remember when the guy on the phone said that the new pistol dies had a new flaring stem that was almost like an " M" die. I had a bunch of older dies and he said that they must be worn out, which calibers did I need? Can't beat their customer...

    Most handguns don't bother me. I had a .480 and shot 400 gr cast boolits from it. I had a 2x Leupold scope mounted on it and clay pigeons @. 100 measured yards was no problem offhand. As I was always doing something stupid I ended up trading it....

    I bought an RCBS primer Pocket swager to get the crimp out of some 30-06 brass that I'm guessing was Greek. The paperwork said to be careful or one could bend the rod. They were right.

    When my late wife died I had no reason to keep her piano or the sectional sofa and sold them on Craigslist. But then it was new and the sellers were upright..... now I won't even look on their site.

    I used my tried an true method this afternoon on some really grungy .380 brass. A healthy squirt or 2 of lemon juice, scalding hot water and a few drips of Dawn. Shake like crazy and rinse and dump on towel to dry. They look great.
