    NOT West End Bitter. Never. That stuff cures alcoholism. It will give you a hang over, AS YOU DRINK IT. Just one or two ended my night out. The story I was told when I first encountered it was that it is made in South Australia and shipped all over...

    Southern Son replied to a thread BREN Gun in Military Rifles
    When my dad did his National Service, he told me of all the weapons they trained him with. He said the SMLE kicked him too hard (dad was not a big bloke), he said he couldn't hit nothing with the Owen gun, but he loved the BREN. I always wanted to...

    I use the same lube that I use on grease groove boolits. I make the cookies by extruding a ribbon with a lube ribbon extruder I got from BACO. I cut the cookies for my 45/70 with a modified .44mag case. I use a .44mag case so that I can drop the...
