    Yes Sir. I lost all my Gun Digest books in a hurricane, but I recall those two. Have read much of your work and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's nice to have you on the forum. I'll be on the lookout for more of your work in the next GD.

    I can see some enterprising fella with a 3-D printer designing a feed tray with feed tube attached for high speed sizing...maybe that's over the horizon. Lee will have a lean green sizing machine.
