    I've been water quenching for over fifty yrs. My DAD was doing it before I was born, 66+yrs ago. The only things I don't W/Q are pure lead RB & Minie's for MuzzleLoaders. And 20/1 for Hollow Points and BlackPowder Loads. I've fired 35,000+...

    I always wore 2 pair of Cotton socks or one pair of cotton inside one pair of Wool socks. Bought them that way too. Took two pair of socks to try them on. For Recruit Training I had 3 dozen pairs of socks. Never had a blister. But then I'd had to...

    That is correct, I'm just so use to getting message "What you are deleting is too big for recycle bin, do you want to permanently delete the files?" Thanks for the correction.

    I found that even with de-priming the cases, when you go to dry them there is still moisture that likes to hide in primer pocket and flash hole. Iím kinda anal when I dry mine so I hit the base of each one on a towel before I stand each one up to...

    I put mine in a padded vise and turn the cylinder with two .357Max cases. Or .445 Cases or .460 cases, even 32H&R Mag for my Old Colt Police Positive.

    Walks replied to a thread CCI bench rest primers in Our Town
    Yep, it's the Brass. Stick with American Made Brass. Or Good foreign stuff, such as Norma or RWS/DWM. Other imported stuff such as S&B and CBC give problems. Not worth the aggravation.

    Warranty is supposed to cover everything. That's what the ad's from the 1960's and 1970's Said. And I don't damage my Firearms!

    Walks replied to a thread Half Moon Club in Our Town
    Sorry to hear of your misfortune. First Time T/C Shooters often "crawl up" the scope. I think the Encore makes it worse, because of the increased recoil. It's often hard to get a good sight picture from a Pistol Scope, until you get used to...

    Just ordered and received 100 cases from "Orisolo" (A USA) and sure enough all case wall thickness were .015 so I'm good to go with those! So now I know I can trust Hornady, Starline and A USA. Does anyone know who else manufactures cases for the...

    Type %temp% in the run line, press enter. Press "CTRL-A" simultaneously to select all, then delete, it may not delete everything as something might be running, but you are safe to do delete what you can.

    Leupold warranty stinks. Bought a 2X7 Vari-X ll in 1974. Mounted it on a Rem 700 in .270Win in Leupold mounts/rings. Never gave me a problem. In 2009 I took it out of the safe after not having shot it in 6 months. The Ocular Bell was "cracked...

    Well you got lucky then! Tin runs 16.00 -24.00 per lb.! I tried the goodwill store here and all they get is that stuff from India that's part aluminum/SS.

    I can almost venture to say it's the variety of brass out there, not the primers. I use a lot of Winchester LR primers. Some cases they want to fall out, others they fit like "socks on a rooster". I've seen this with Tula, S&B, Federal and CCI. So...
