    PIF: 220 Swift die set

    In return for mtnfolk75's box of 9mm brass, I am posting a set of Eagle brand 220 Swift dies (collectible?). I don't think they have been used but have no history on the set.



    Post here that you want them, then PM me with your shipping info.

    Yes, but I can always use another one. Since I beat you to the dies you better send me yours. It has to go down in the record books! I beat brass magnet to a PIF for once! Lol

    P.S. you can take affense to it if you want but please don’t PM again along with posting to ask if I have a matching caliber rifle after I claimed dies on a PIF. You buy and claim enough around here the way it is...I’m sure you can go buy a set of dies if you really need them that bad.

    I know your a great guy. We talked over the phone after I sent you a PIF last year but I think your a have a little OCD on PIF.lol I think it’s time to let someone else have a chance once in a while please...and without trying to lay a guilt trip on them for beating you to a PIF. I know this is the first time you’ve heard this in the last week or two...and I thought we were only allowed 1 PIF claim per fiscal month?

    And BTY I believed YOU claimed or bought something and were called out on it because it was something you had several of but came back with a post saying it was for someone else and not to add the the other three you had laying around. Hoarder!

    I do have a 220 Swift, and brass. This die set was an "extra" set and I am trying to clean house a bit.

    The most accurate Savage I've ever owned was the old long action 112V single shot .220 Swift. I just thought I'd throw that in here.

    220 swift owners everywhere...wa wa what? Lol

    I received my dies the other day, thanks again!

    Geez, since I gave away 2 knives the last 2 times here on pif instead of 1 does that mean I have 2 banked pif’s?

    I think we should start a separate thread for banked PIF so everybody claims and no one PIF’s.

    How much are those credit card knives worth? I had one some time back and I only gave 5 bucks for it if I recall right. Course I'm sure it was a different brand.

    Yeah...I was trying to be sarcastic if you couldn’t figure out from the above posts. My intention with the comment was to mock the sand baggers who give away more than one item and then say their banking pif’s. I gave two away the last two times because I received some really cool stuff and felt I needed to give more perceived value away in a PIF.

    The problem I’ve seen in the past and recently is that someone claims they have several banked PIFs and start to claim several items back to back when it clearly states that only one per month should claimed...and no PIFs are then restarted. I’m just venting if you can’t tell.

    Think I paid just under $10 each for the knives at the time. Guess it’s a better PIF than patches cut up from my underwear.lol ...and people claim them all the time too! Whether I paid a buck or twenty each for them I can say they last about 15 minutes on a PIF. That’s the fun of it...offering something of value someone wants. The point I was trying to get across went over someone’s head apparently and tried to figure out a perceived value rather of a PIF item rather than giving away multiple items at the same time and then calling several PIF credits banked. Must be one of the bankers defending themselves. The whole point of my rant is we have a few hogs on PIF and I’m going out of my way with freedom of speech to address it. I’ve had quite a few positive PM’s after my posts on this thread calling out a few people...so I’m not alone. Just trying to keep it fun for everyone and not wreck it in the process. It just seems lately it’s the same guys claiming every other item every couple of days...and then one of them sends me a PM asking if I own a rifle if the caliber dies I’m claiming and then he openly admits he dosent own one either...but already has dies and brass...but still wants my dies I claimed...REALLY???

    Alright , I’m done venting. Sorry for whoever wasted valuable time reading this.
