    I am interested in knowing how to go from an image of something to a specific output. Is this an “off the shelf” software? Something like this. But instead of saying phone/car, apply a different output for each, like a grounding output/5...

    Maybe they wanted it to be like the Hornady LNL where the bushings self detach.? Don’t get me wrong, I like quick change but there needs to be positive retention once I put it there.

    Title says it all. Thinking about a headstamp sorting machine and can do the mechanical side, just need to learn the optical scanner/output part.

    As a kid I witnessed a grain elevator explosion. For the non-rural types grain elevators are large storage silo's. Grains of wheat are barely flammable. Wheat dust on the other hand is highly flammable/explosive. While I am not interested enough...

    There are a lot of other factors in play that could make that statement false.

    Why? If you could seat with the exact same force precisely, what good would that do for you? You would just wind up with a range of different OAL’s because of slight differences in the components or how they were prepared.

    How do you discontinue something that already exists? Maybe because it was in the past? Like I discontinued eating after I took my last bite... Maybe instead of a New Years party we should be having a “discontinue last year” party.

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    Most of the issues are with the semi-auto's. I have Sako Quads, CZ 452 and Contenders in 17M2 and the Magnum Research in a Semi-Auto. Neck and shoulder cracks are more common than with the 17HMR but in either they are not a problem or a safety...

    Your friend is giving you bad advice. Rimfire's erode from the glass beads in the priming compound. With a borescope you can see it at about 20,000 rounds. On target rifles 50,000 rounds without loss is not unusual. I know of one range rental...
