    Very well swaged projectiles. It appears you used a round nose point forming die of sorts. Did you do anything special to the ejection pin. I didn't notice too much deformation.

    After reading your articles and information on both sites there is a small chance of Alex making us look lazy. He, as others on this site, has raised the bar and given us incentive. Oh yes he did it without photo bucket, notice that.

    Never.

    My years spent in the "socialist camp" - mediocre lost time. Now I have opportunities and a little freedom. Now I myself am responsible for my life. And I like it.

    I want to live interesting. I'm "hungry" with respect to work.

    Colleagues, I envy your opportunities. For me, most of what you can get without making any effort is simply not available.

    Do not be lazy. Laziness is the greatest sin.

    The globe became small. The Internet and international postal items are the great achievements of civilization.

    And Russian customs is the greatest evil.

    What does "Balkin" mean?

    My translator program does not cope with the translation.

    However, from my point of view, identification by nationality is a tribute to their ancestors. In Russia, in its pure form, nationality, I think, was not preserved - a continuous cocktail of genes.

    Meaning, in my opinion, has a language in which you think and speak, the culture you follow ... well, citizenship (or place of residence) is what gives opportunities for self-realization. Or does not give, if it's North Korea.
