    I really like their transparent shipping costs, of course I always end up buying more ammo trying to maximize my shipping value. Pretty clever I guess.

    I took the springs out of the butt stock on my 9mm and it eliminated the cheek bite for me. I guess getting rid of the springs help it not move as much.

    My brother in law bought a 9x20in HF lathe a few years back. He would get mad at me when I said it was a cool toy. He would demand I acknowledge it was the equal of the lathes I ran at work (I'm a machinist). He finally came around to my point of...

    kenton replied to a thread 20 cent primers in Our Town
    Everyone does realize that "price gouging" is the natural reaction of a well functioning free market economy right? If you want fixed prices you need outside interference from a socialist group. You should be writing the "price gougers" commending...

    Custom anything is going to be expensive, usually very expensive. Have you looked into case reforming? There is a sub forum specifically for that, you may be able to get help there.
