    I'm old school. Still like the feeling of holding something in my hands when I read it. Interweb is great, but nothing can compare to holding a good book / magazine, while reading. To me, it's like talking with friends in person. Phone and...

    That .380 didn’t quite make it into the post. I hate it when I do that! I don’t have any with gas checks, but I do have some plain based sized to .379 for a Stevens. I don’t remember the weight. Surely I could spare some.

    I've been playing with different cast boolets for my M1 Carbine. So far I've found the LEE 309 120 gas check works the best. Still trying different powders, but it's out shooting all the other boolets I've tried. I'm thinking it's the gas check.

    I posted some pictures of some old primers in the Vintage section. How collectible are old primers???? Is the box more important than the primers???? Primers look to be in good, clean condition.

    Good idea. I wasn't going to shoot it anyway. Rather have it go to some collector. BUT....... Shipping is going to be a problem. I have more old shotgun shells someplace. I'll find them someday.

About dagger dog
Raised like a gypsy, following the thoroughbred race horse circuit , father, grandfather, GGF, GGGR, were farriers-blacksmiths. My father was small enough to ride, as a jockey but relied on his trade as a thoroughbred farrier to raise his family. I was 18 when I passed the test for master farrier by the now defunct union, that was in effect in 1965.
