    I just pulled out a box of Federal #4 heavy game loads I bought from walmart for $5.99 last May. Should have bought a box of 5's and 6's as well since everything is cleaned out from the covid clap!

    Two seasons. September through November and then Jan through March. Shotgun only. You think it would be open year around like coyotes. I normally call them after I get done predator calling for the morning to get some shooting out of my system.

    As mentioned, with "modern" lubes starting with the NRA 50/50 formula it was found the larger lube grooves were not required. Actually, it also was found the larger lube grooves could be a detriment to accuracy especially when the cast bullet was...

    I the big (bottom) ring hollow or solid? Does it have clamp marks on it? Unless you have a drill press with super fine depth adjustment I'd only use this for roughing in brass for case conversions.

    It's completely legal to have an air gun or muzzel loader with a "muffler" and not have to get a tax stamp. You Just have to do your homework. I'm sure you would have to make your own I'm guessing since no one is probably going to sell a supressor...

    I vacuum sealed some 5.56 loads with 60 grain vmax. About 250 per bag. All the bags lost their vacuum over time but the ammo still looks like brand new. Did this about 4 years ago.
