    You are making me hungry. Over basmati is very good and healthier, but an Irish twist of over chips is better yet. Be sure, if having it there or at an authentic pub to tell them spicy - the Irish tame their curries even worse than Brits and...

    I guess that I came decades too late to the party, but these would've simplified my loading. The .38spcl and .357 are the only reasons that I even need small primers or their punches.

    Landy88 replied to a thread Winchester Model 70 in Factory Rifles
    Good points on quality of the latest crf 70s, but one has to factor in the awful new trigger. Now, if they put an honest M70 trigger back on the current 70fwt...

    Some of the best shooting compact .45s (no direct experience with 9s or .40s) around, but part of how they do it is by weighing as much as a full-size.

    To throw in one more wrinkle: After years of customers or would be ones complaints about post 64 fit and finish Winchester brought out an XTR version 70s - 80s that was still the post 64 / 68 PF action but very nice wood, fit, and finish - these...

    No pics but I use an old milsurped desk much like that. It works well, and the metal in it is usefully heavy gauged stuff. Without an overhang mounting some presses is tricky but doable. Even though it's heavy and sturdy, I still had to brace the...

    Another tack on this could be keeping the loading kit right with the gun. I've seen elegant fitted cases for fine old guns that had places built in for both gun care and loading tools. My own favorite two rifle case has a nylon cover over the...

    Landy88 replied to a thread Venison Roast in Cookin' Recipe's
    These are all cook it til it breaks down methods an other way with venison is to barely cook it. Food borne pathogens are a much smaller risk in venison than in almost any other meat, allowing us to leave it rather rare. Thinking of a venison...

    You've put together a nice box for a nice group of 310 tools. Maybe add foam to pad the scale, only somewhat fragile bit. Your nice wood box is a lot classier than my old video camera case for reloading and old steel toolbox for casting tools,...

    Herco is happier as a +p powder than as a -p powder. Even the so versatile Unique will begin to balk at too reduced of loads.

    I think that I even drooled a bit, then I saw the "LH." A nice LH .54 and 12ga TC New Englander is on GB, if anyone shoots from that shoulder.

    It is more a case of moving to hand tools for flexibility and something new to try, for me, than of getting back to them, since I was all in from the start with a pretty full RCBS bench-top setup, as a kid, for my loading startup. My parents were...

    Good to be reminded that there are some options if one wants (or is forced) to move up a level or two to a custom or semi-custom ML. I'm not there, yet; but I do want a dedicated elk ML. I think that a little bore diameter would for that be a...

    The .50 has always been the sales leader, but it's big sisters were always in the market. Now, it seems it's almost, to paraphrase Henry Ford, "...available in any caliber you want as long as it is .50."
