    In regards to shooting safety.Until you are ready to fire, keep your booger hook off the bang switch.

    There are so many calibers and bullet designs because there are so many different targets... the target is everything.

    219 Improved Zipper from 25/35 (Thanks to Hornady for providing new 25/35 brass!). Left to right would be the 25/35 case, then trimmed to just a bit too long 25/35, 25/35 in the trimmer (Lyman for drill press setup), sized in Zipper FL sizer (just leaves a little shoulder) and loaded with forming load (Lee .225/50 grain with White Label blue lube, 9 grains Green Dot for a nice 150 yard sage rat load) and finally a fully formed case loaded with 53 grain Hornady hollow point for those 300 yard sage rats. And I don't use a photo hosting service so you'll need to click on the pic to get full-sized.

    Glad you liked it RED. It was kinda' fun to set up, and I used the technique where you are pretty much in the dark and you give a long exposure (20 seconds in this case) and light it with a flashlight you move around to light the various areas...
