    Do you remember all the years the other side vilified us? Even though we were law abiding, we were the problem. Remember how the other side always persecuted the innocent? In November you have a chance to even some of that. Remember.... Dear...

    I would have got mine today if the post person was not to lazy to walk up 10 steps to my office. It left a slip in the locked box saying no one was available to accept it. Only problem is I was there when the tracking says he came by.

    Now there is a good idea... If you reload you can make 7mm/08. Even back in the early '50s' it was better than the 308 by quite a bit. You could have the best of both worlds.... I suggest a search on 'how to' to see if you want a project like...

    Just cast the first batch from a NOE TC358-100 RF for my 380. It will be a while before I can get some loaded. I want to powder coat them first and will be out of town for the next 3 weekends. I'll post something when I can get some loaded.

About Minerat
I have been reloading since 1970 when I started with shotgun while in HS. Have an civil engineeering degree and own my own company doing mining consulting work for clay, quarry stone and sand and gravel mines in Colorado. I have done this for 37 years. Just started casting this month (May 2014). I shoot both rifle and pistol and fish and elk hunt.
