    I end up shooting mostly Unique in 44 Mag. It's versatile, with a huge range of loads. After Unique, I shoot mostly W296 in magnum loads because I found a good deal on it. But #9 is my preferred for full power loads. It just seems like I shoot more...

    That's the way I did things a couple years ago. Maintaining and teaching electronics has been my job for 40+ years, but I never had an interest in HAM. That would be a hobby way too close to what I call work. Then the wife got the HAM bug but knew...

    I'm reminded of years ago when my folks were having a well drilled. They hit water at maybe 50', but had to go maybe 200' for what they considered good water. It could be the case that water would be available for washing, toilets, etc from a...
