    They gave me $487, IIRC, which wasn't enough to replace the 1903 Springfield. One of the guns that went missing was my Agawam Arms .22LR SS lever gun. The very first rifle I ever owned. $20 gun in 1971, upwards of $400 now. Was unobtainable with the...

    Yes! Sort of like alcohol, too. You get one, and then you need another, then they get together and decide you need another... Bro is delivering my 4th lathe/3rd mill tomorrow, Lord willing and the creek don't rise. Smithy 3-in-1 combination machine.

    Hate to say it, but you're unlikely to find anywhere that has much in the way of reloading supplies, particularly primers, at the moment. I was in my favorite local gun shop Monday, and the Winchester .45acp ammo I last bought from them a year or so...

    Scrounge replied to a thread Machinest help in Swaging
    I had to wait a couple of months, but it was worth it. If you're not going full-time, a bit of a drive isn't that bad. I go two days a week. When I was working, it was a 75mile round trip, home to work, work to school, and back to home. Don't have...

    Things like that are why it is sometimes worth spending the money for a specialist. Not that they do anything that you couldn't do, but that they know exactly where to do it, and how much to do.

    It is not your imagination. Many things are now sold in smaller packages. Ice Cream used to be sold in pints, quarts, and gallon. Now it's pints, .75L, and the occasional gallon.

    #1Son's birthday was Friday, he wanted T-bone steak. Too late for me to go to Wheeler's Meat Market. Went to Cash Saver's for other stuff, and looked in the meat department. $8.99/lb for T-bone, plus the 10% they add so they can make a profit....

    Do it Different! Use a File Trim die to size it. File off the brass that sticks out. Trim and Chamfer. Then FL size, trim, chamfer, load.

    I'm not one to go looking at engraved guns. I'm a cheap bastrich, and have never been able to afford to buy one. I've been somewhat idly interested in learning how to engrave, collected some odd bits and pieces, and plans to make an engraving vise...

    If you have never run into one of these RCBS kits before, they are pretty ingenious! When you have ripped the case rim off while sizing a case yo use this kit. Remove the die from the press and thread it back in the press with the case head up...

    Everyone will need one eventually, usually without warning. Then not having one is a show stopper. Trying to find a work around frequently destroys a perfectly good sizing die.
