    There are lots of common things that didn't exist here a few centuries ago, including white men, politicians and there are also many things now missing that were once common. It's not evolution, just that not everything follows modern mans rules....

    Typical. Lawyers and bean counters found profit and earned their pay at your expense. Keep after them and document who and when you spoke. No guarantee but only the squealing wheel will get greased. I've had a similer problem with WalMart...

    Not to steal the thread but if there's any left over, I'd like to buy some also-a couple hundred would be nice.

    Just my 2 cents On the thermocouple the top of the probe should be metal. An not plastic. The fire from charring wood often covers the top of the thermocouple. You will also need a container to put all of your goodies in. Metal boxes with vent...

    Most of those rocket jockeys think there "portant people". Along with loud mufflers, they are making sure you look to see who they are. The ones that make my day are the little old blue-haired ladies that are looking through the steering wheel...

    Had that clumping thing too but shaking the cans cleared it up. Doesn't seem right but still performed the same velocity wise.

    I have used it in everything from .32 up to 11 gauge shotgun. It seems to like the heavier projectiles. The heavier they were, the more velocity per grain wt. I didn't get a chance to test out the velocity in .32 and .36 (didn't bring the chrono...

    The only deer i couldn't eat was a younger (2-3) buck. It literally smelled and tasted like a pine tree. Several friends and i tried multiple marinades and nothing helped get rid of the smell and flavor.

    Applying that kind of heat directly to lead is a guaranteed way to send lead oxides and vaporized lead into the air we breathe. While it's fast and it works, it's not recomended. As casters we want too live long ehough to shoot the lead we melt.

    Reloading needs only a trip downstairs. The range requires loading the car and a trip that leaves Granny by her self. At our age, the buddy system is safety for both of us, so I have an increasing supply of loaded ammo.
