    Wonder if you could seal up the cases by pressing the mouth into a piece of wax, tumble them, then use a pick to get the wax out. Might be less effort to deprime them. Or tumble them after loaded.

    Iíll try it, if nothing else Iíll use it to treat the fungus on the azaleas. Do you know if it can be used in something like a pesticide fogger?

    Didnít see the ad, but probably Fiocchi 9APE which is a great suppressed round. They only make it seasonally, I understand that the bullets are made in Italy then loaded in the US, but point is that it is not always available.

    The more I think about it the less I like the assumption that the primer pocket is centered, better to index from the case rim? Maybe turn a small disc from brass or aluminum, cut a rebate that’s a press fit on the case rim, and center drill it and...

    I have them in a handful of calibers and I believe that the only functional difference is the expander. Not sure what they mean by period packaging, mine came in green plastic boxes.

    For quick little batches like that the FART is great. If you aren’t too picky about shiny primer pockets you can run without pins and save yourself some time and money.

    Take the OT while you can, never know when you might be out for weeks or months. Work-life balance is important, but you have to think about it over a longer period than a day or a week. Work your butt off now and take a month with the family to go...

    When you apply for unemployment be sure that the reason is “coronavirus” as that gives you additional benefits. Have you looked at the changes to FMLA? You might be better off taking leave for the next 3-6 months than sticking around.

    I don’t think that the issue is the law or getting arrested, it’s that you’ve entered into a contract with an insurance company and if you’re violating it that’s also a violation of the loan agreement with the bank. If the house burns for unrelated...

    Whatís going on is his buddy is an FFL and charging $150 for the transfer, then kicking some of it back. Also explains the lies about what the USPS will or will not do. Nice gun though!

    I paid $60 to send one UPS a couple months ago. The beauty of using the FFL is that they can use USPS, and I’d expect it to be cheap.

    I once asked this and was told that it’s better to cut them off before annealing, the annealed brass is a little grabbier when sawing. I’m planning to anneal after cutting and before forming, but I haven’t however actually converted any yet.

    That looks like it was a single plate, would have liked to see it before it was broken.
