    Carpet Warehouse stores will have cardboard tubes as trash that will probably fit a wood stock.

    Me too! But some of the people are a little odd.... actually they all are. Don't believe me drop a wheel weight or 1/2# Lee ingot at midnight in the forest, on soft leaves and see if any of them show up!

    The trick with reformed is to get re-formed military 06 brass. No head stamp with caliber on it to lie to you.

    That lasted a whole 14 minutes! Will wonders never cease! Or was the internet down for a bit? Really a nice score.

    Worst case scenario at $8 per box that is plenty of money right there. Can you imagine having those full? Of your own cast and reloads? And not having the garage settling several feet lower than the house? Police responding to an attempted...

    I'll give a bump in the hopes that the brass ends up in the hands of someone less likely to do a drive-by shooting of my house (again) with it once reloaded. Good guy to deal with. If he says 1x it is once fired. If I didn't have two 5 gallon...

    I bought some of that WC brass from Grumpa and was pleased with the quality when the brass arrived. Dealing with him was good too. Think I went right to the bench and started loading it as I recall.

    But what about .22 LR ? Eh? When that is $5 per hundred or under I'll figure "normal" has broken out again. I too have started seeing some less common powders and more 8# jugs of popular powders.

    On the new blades getting ordered. Great! Thanks a bunch for taking point on this. I bought one of the HF 2" saws, noticed the blade is now held on with a socket head cap screw rather than a Phillips or slotted screw. Think that was mentioned...

    Have both, the quick trim dies are a specific length of cavity so the cutter can only reach a certain amount of the case. 38's won't reach cutter in .357 die and 357 brass would stick way up and be trimmed to 38 special length in the 38 special die....

    yep. They even say so in the fine print. Also, "they" could use it to deny coverage to a son, daughter, or grandbaby. As interesting as the info would be, there is no doubt in my mind that this will be misused.

    Right around 50# was the common size for large commercial lead ingots, there is another style of about the same weight that is thinner at both ends but thicker in the middle. Nice score. Few donuts, a pizza, some cold beverages, it doesn't take...

    How could I forget. Yep, first the silver run out, then the people run out, then the whiskey run out, then the beer run out. Don't matter, it's good to see a high roller come through.
