    There were not almost 45million flu deaths in the US in 2017, 2018 or any other year. Typo maybe?

    With bullseye in 38 spcl isn’t 3.4g almost always a good answer? Obviously start low and work up.

    Could be a great many things. I’d remove the grips and take them out of the room, then clean the gun thoroughly. Smell could be that someone used a lube that went rancid, but anyway once you clean up the metal it shouldn’t have a smell. No reason...

    What’s on the 4473 is not considered conclusive evidence. Lots of lowers have been bought on 4473’s marked rifle, but as long as they got built first as a pistol then they are pistols. Of course if you buy a rifle then you’re limited to it being a...

    Don’t let your emotions get the best of you, the casepro is a great tool and Mike will come out of hiding soon. I’d sell you my 40 dies, I don’t use them, but they happen to be the back of my 9mm dies. If you’re close to Charlotte I could probably...

    I think you could clean them up with an eraser, no harm at all.

    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...
