    All the brass has been deprimed and SS tumbled so it`s nice and shiny with clean primer pockets. All the brass is range pickup and appears to be once fired. First "I'll Take IT" and a PM scores. Prices DO NOT include shipping in Flat Boxes I...

    I never wet tumble nickeled cases. An hour in the vibratory tumbler with walnut shells cleans them nicely. Any brass cases I wet tumble are deprimed first. It`s an extra step but the clean primer pockets are worth it.

    I smoked another full rack of cheese in the Big Chief yesterday. I did all cheddar. Some sharp. Some medium. Setting the rack directly on a tray of ice is keeping the cheese cool enough to smoke without any melting. 2 hours seems to be bout right...

    Mine are in 50# paper cartons sold by Hodgdon. I bought one full in 1970 after the 1968 gun control act panic buy from a guy for $20. The other was gifted to me by a friend a couple of months ago.

    I saw a box of 800 federals at Bi Mart for $45 a few days ago. $.056 a round doesn`t seem too bad to me. It isn`t 1965 anymore so I don`t think we will see $6-8 a brick again.

    I have never smoked buffalo or carp but from my experience with steelhead and salmon it looks done to me. When the flesh opens up on fish it means it`s done to me. My best method to tell if salmon or steelhead is done is to press down on the...

    I did a small test to see the difference in a load using LRM primers in 45ACP. My standard load is a mild load of 700X in the 45ACP with a 200 gr SWC bullet. I have no way of testing pressure but the mag primer loads were 50fps faster than the...

    After many years of trying different molds in the Carbine I finally settled on the NOE 311-121-RN-GC. I used 296 for years until I bought 8# of WC820 surplus used for Ball loads in the M1. 13 gr. of WC820 for 1800fps a load more accurate than FMJ...

    Condolences to his family. RIP Ricky. I had some very interesting conversations with Ricky on chat some time ago. I have some .430 bullets Ricky swaged from 40S&W brass that I have never shot. I will now load and shoot them in his memory.

    Could use 1 fire formed .260 “Ackley Improved” case for comparison/measurement purposes so can even be a worn out one. Does not have to be out of your prime shooting stock. Researching a project. Thanx in advance Kevin

    I’m blown away by how clean wet tumbling gets the primer pockets and inside of my brass. I gotta tell you, I’m a believer. I use a squirt of dawn, a tablespoon of citric acid and a cap full of woolite if I have to take lube off. I’m...
