    Seating dies are not hardened like sizing dies, so are much easier to shorten. Just take it to a bench grinder or a belt grinder and have at it. It does have to be pretty or even square on the bottom.

    As a kid I witnessed a grain elevator explosion. For the non-rural types grain elevators are large storage silo's. Grains of wheat are barely flammable. Wheat dust on the other hand is highly flammable/explosive. While I am not interested enough...

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 17 Mach 2 in Rimfire Area
    Most of the issues are with the semi-auto's. I have Sako Quads, CZ 452 and Contenders in 17M2 and the Magnum Research in a Semi-Auto. Neck and shoulder cracks are more common than with the 17HMR but in either they are not a problem or a safety...
