    No apology necessary, it is a will always be a super charged topic. Your girlfriend is correct, it is virtually impossible without outside help. My wife became an EMT after she retired, and even though she can't discuss anything in specifics,...

    It doesn't help, that's my point. My brother, my friends and the other people I've known that has succumbed to drug over doses, made a choice and it cost them in the end. I never said it wasn't tragic and it's certainly a horrible way to die, but...

    Make that three that feel that way. I lost a very good friend, two od's in rental properties I own, two od's at work and lost a brother at 37. If you take that **** it will in time kill you. Narcan just perpetuates the problem, it solves nothing.

    I do a bunch of stuff on a horizontal mill that yes, granted is easier to setup on a vertical mill (e.g. dovetails) but setups can be a bit time consuming. That having been said, I still use a Lagun FTV-1 as my main mill to use. And yes, I...

    At the risk of thread drift..... I know what you mean, I'm really fond of horizontal mill performance. Currently I have a K&T #2CK, Burke #4, Hardinge TM and a Nichols. Yep, it's an illness:mrgreen:

    I have the same setup. I'm using 310-410 with a gas check (Milhec's version) and Reloader7. Equals full house loads of RL7 and Hornady 110 grain jacketed accuracy wise.

    If Country Gent sold you on the idea of a horizontal mill. Try to find a Burke hand mill, I find them quite often, usually in good shape and cheap. NMTB 30 spindle, small enough to fit in the corner and with enough power to do anything the hobbyist...

    I use 12 grains 2400 and 180 grain WFN in .357 cases. Slow it down and you'll likely see thing tighten up.

    It's going to depend on your plans, what your skill level is and adaptability for you to make the machine fit the work. Yes, toy sized machines can do an amazing amount of work but your setups are going to be time consuming and sometimes looking...

    Sounds like the chamber has pitting near the base of the chamber. You might get another box of shell to try, possibly the lot of brass wasn't sized properly. I would hesitate from doing much polishing (a little is OK) you run the risk of belling the...

    I have a Miroku/Winchester in .45 Colt. It shoots and handles a treat, likes fat bullets but not long ones.

    I have two of the three you listed. The Mini Thirty does real well with jacketed bullets, I haven't found a lot of success with cast. The CZ 527 shoots great with everything.

    Nothing wrong with your alloy. I doubt expansion will be in you future with that velocity or that particular bullet. That big meplat is going to cause plenty problems for any deer you poke with it. I think everyone that has hunted has wanted a...

    Well, I picked one up yesterday. Ran a couple clips through it (Lee 105 grain/3.5 gr. Clays) Worked flawlessly, good sights, decent balance, put all the shots into the size of my hand at thirty yards. Any regret at selling my Camp 9 is rapidly...

    Way under powered for everything except cutting grass. If you like green, a 1020, Red, 454 International or Massey Ferguson 231. Try to round up one with a bucket. More money than an 8N for good reason.

    I must be exceptionally lucky, I've acquired a 336, and two 1894's in 44 Mag and .45 Colt(CB) of recent manufacture and they are every bit as good as anything I own that was made in North Haven.

    Every shop in my area has had a few on the rack for the last two months. Could be because they want almost 600-700 bucks. I will wait for mine at 444 out the door. OUCH! My LGS is getting 489.00 I don't want one bad enough to shell out 6-700...

    The waiting list of people that want one of these is breathtakingly long. The local consensus is you will not see any on the shelf this year. I got the call last week, was busy so I told my buddy who was just below me on the list to grab it. He's...

    No, it's not for sale, just to trade at this time. If I should change my mind, I will offer it to the forum members first. Thanks for asking.

We accumulate our opinions at an age when our understanding is at its weakest. Georg C. Lichtenberg

At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, If it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time, or die by suicide. A. Lincoln
