    I paid more than that years ago when I bought my T-7. If you can use another press jump on this deal. I doubt you'll ever find a new one at this price again. Gp

    Just fun and reliable plinking carbines. Mine is in 40S&W a round I much prefer in the carbine than in a pistol. They are inexpensive, reliable, fun and also ugly. What's not to like.Gp

    I too, believe Blue Dot a little slow for 9mm. It does work very well @ 8gr. in my Hi-Point 40 S&W carbine with 180gr. bullets. Gp

    I bought the Mossberg 4X4 in 25-06 when Bud's had them on close-out special, only $250 and other than the plastic magazine it's a pretty good rifle. I think their well worth the price asked. Gp

    I believe the most reasonable and useful gun would be the Blackhawk convertible, good resale value too. That said, sometimes you've just got to go with the one you think would be the most fun. Gp

    Mid-South sent me this warning also. The rifle I bought is a Mustang break-barrel and I didn't see that model listed but my #s are just 150 or so lower than the bottom # I E-Mailed Lyman to make sure but haven't got a reply. Gp

    Steven66: I would recommend the NOE expansion die and plugs over the Lyman or RCBS. The function is the same but you can chose to the one one thousandth of an inch which size expansion plug you need for the just right fit of YOUR bullet. Gp

    Saw earlier above the worry of a slow twist in the 444s, that is why I bought my Handi rifle 444. It has a 1 in 20 twist and has no problems with heavy bullets. That is the main reason I own that rifle instead of a 44mag. The 44mag brass is less...
