    Minturn Yacht Club in Minturn CO not sure it is still there. It was one of those places where you picked the meat out if the cold case, sold only USDA prime aged beef and you paid separate for the sides. Their T-bone was to die for.

    That's very informative, thanks! It's interesting to see the change in nose profile for the RCBS moulds. Do the 2 RCBS moulds cast to the same approximate weight? It also looks like the middle one has the square lube groove -vs- the other two with...
