    Ding! Ding! Ding! and we have a winner. The .562 ball goes through about like loading a muzzle loader +/- a bit. As soon as I get a chance to mark a dowel as a depth gage to leave enough hull for crimping I'll be loading a couple of them to test....

    I use file handles, they are about like the wood handle on a mold. Some the ferrule tightens to squeeze down on the tang. My biggest problem is storing files so they don't get banged together. I put them on a piece of cardboard but every so often...

    RogerDat replied to a thread My USPS story. in Our Town
    I had one single clerk in a fairly large post office who really didn't like my boxes of lead. One time she wouldn't take a SFRB because "it had tape all over it". What it had was fiber tape on all folds/corners, and over the label it had clear...

    If you don't find an available .30 round ball mold check out track of the wolf. They have a 6 cavity .310 round ball Lee mold for a decent price. I picked up one because two pours to do a load seemed better than six pours with a double cavity. ...

    My Lee .562 RB mold is due here Friday. I'm going to want to make at least a few right away to check actual fit. Now where is that fingers crossed smiley? YIPPEEE! It came a day early. :-) At least according to the USPS tracking system.

    RogerDat replied to a thread Computer texting???? in Our Town
    You have to have the phone number AND know what carrier that they get service from. Each carrier (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, etc.) has their own gateway. You have to send the message to the-phone-number@their-carrier-gateway. That link I posted...

    Those utility dies for de-priming or Lee trim dies would certainly be a good use for that tray. Also the Lee universal flaring dies. Or the Lyman cut off die for turning 30-06 into 8mm mauser. Come to think of it I DO have a lot of dies that are...

    Still I think a 255 grain pill in RFN configuration delivered BMC will pretty much end that persons participation in a robbery. If the perps are persistent enough to not leave dragging the first wounded/dying one with them I would be somewhat...

    I read all about pan lubing, and then decided I really liked tumble lubing and shake and bake powder coating. :-) The first takes a squirt of alox based lube in a big zip lock bag, tumble and dump on tray. The powder coat is a bit more work but...

    Not surprising the number of people that say "better" than nothing and if your comfortable with it then use it. Seems simple to me in a flat out fire fight the SA is at a disadvantage in term of only one thing. Suppressing fire. Me I don't want...
