    This completely catches me off guard! Was this a sudden event?

    Too far west of where I should be.
    Grumpa has been called home?

    He was a fine old gentleman. I liked him very much. He contributed much to this forum. Had necking 32-20 down to 25-20 or 218 BEE down to a science.

    I'll miss you Grumpa.

    Prayers for his wife.

    May his Alloy always be pure and his pours drop clean.
    And may his groups always be small & round.

    This is why salvation is so important, one never knows when the finger of death will touch you.
    Political correctness is a national suicide pact.

    I am a sovereign individual, accountable
    only to God and my own conscience.

    Very sad to hear. I have several boxes of his fine brass work. He will be missed.

    His 32 Remington brass he made for us from 38-55 is still going strong and operate’s flawlessly in an old 141 pump . He will be missed and I will always remember him fondly!
