    When I was young, we drove 44 miles to the nearest K Mart and Sears. It was a real treat not to have to go to a different store for clothes, toys, tools, and yard supplies. We usually made the trip at least once a year before school started or...

    I'll just tap the address # and talk to them, or leave a message. That takes 3 taps only. Old school, even on modern technology, is still simpler.

    Honestly, for that reason, I am amazed that Lyman still produces Load data, but I am surely glad they do.

    Kmart left as soon as Walmart announced a Super Store opening. Dollar General has opened 3 new local stores and left the strip mall. Five grocery chain stores closed as Walmart opened small local stores. Sears is still in the mall, but barely...

    Give that mold 5 or 10 casting sessions to break in and develop some oxides on the surfaces, and while doing so, you prefect your technique with the "RG" system, as it takes some gettin' use to. Then you'll be casting HPs as fast as FN.
