    Just slugs the throat a little to get an impression of it. You can size from throat diameter to bore diameter. Take your pick. I like to be about throat diameter. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    It's not that bad on the Loadmaster. I have cheap webcam I have had forever mounted in the second die hole. I can see everything taking place on the shell plate and powder level, even if a primer didn't seat. So no chance of a double charge. Check...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread anyone know how to fix in Our Town
    You can buy replacement zipper "travelers" the part that moves. I have fixed a couple of jackets with zippers that way. My favorite solution requires another zipper. Like from a zippered pocket. At the top there is normally something kind of...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Prayers requested in Our Chapel
    Those are the hard ones, where it seems totally unexplainable why one of Gods gifts is called home so early. We don't know, as long as we live we may never know. Someday perhaps when we meet our Maker. My heart aches for you and your family....

    My wife also suffers from arthritis in hands, wrists. She's deadly with her Ruger Mk III 22/45 with a red dot sight on top. 20 feet, standing, I have seen her put 10 into a group you could cover with a pop cap. None would have touched the sides...

    May the peace of the Lord be on each and every one of you and your family. Accepting that things change, people we love grow old, parts wear out, eventually we lose them. Well its just plain hard. But I'll be praying for you and them.

    Yes that would anneal them. I don't think they need to be in there an hour though. Just heat them for about 30 minutes then alloy them to air cool. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
