    Well, truthfully, that Bonneville is probably what I need, just take short trips when I feel like it. Good commuter, easy and fun to ride and British twins just look so classy. No shortage here in the Flint Hills of nice rolling country two-lane...

    I comutted to Topeka daily for a while on a 2003 Suzuki Dl 1000 V-Strom. Also did week long trips for work to Fort Knox and also Great Lakes Naval station, both just over 600 miles. That was a great bike for putting miles in on the slab, fast and...

    Looking for a set. I really prefer anything besides Lee dies for bottle neck stuff, but I'll consider them if that's what's available. Anybody have a set they aren't using?

    I used to ride quite a bit, not group joy riding stuff, I used the bike to get places for the most part. I kind of got out of it a few years ago and the two remaining ones I have have been sitting in the shop. The big enduro, I'll get going on my...

    I don't watch on Amazon, but a sight called IMDB has break downs of synopsis, history, cast with bios and work history, etc., of every TV show and movie ever made. James best was a good actor and a good guy. He was in three of the better...

    I shoot a rolling block in .45-70, my loads for 100 yard target shooting are pretty wimpy even by Trap Door standards, but they shoot great. As to the lead inavailability, most of the naysayers aren't willing to look for it. I have probably a...

    6mm never has been that common. Best to handload for it. I am set up and have cast some bullets for mine, but so far, I've only provided some for my brother's .243, but he was pleased with how they shot. Mine really likes Winchester 760 and...

    My 788 in 6mm is one that will never leave me. I never saw a 788 that wasn't a pretty good shooter. I've had a few over the years. The 6mm has always been a great shooter, though I'm not real sure it'll outperform the economy rifles of today.

    Question which is relevant to the .38-55 Lee Loader question (bear in mind I have not used one for metallic cartridges before). The Lee loaders, as I understand it, only neck size normally. With a straight walled case like .38-55, .375 Winchester,...

    My experience was that the short neck problem with the .300 Savage is more BS theoretical than actual fact. I killed a deer with mine, load was the 31141 and 28 grains of IMR 4895, rifle shot that load well and didn't seem to care that the base of...

    If you're gonna pay that much for lead, you might just as well buy jacketed bullets. I don't find the process of rendering range scrap or wheel weights nearly enough of a problem to justify that cosyt. You must either be rich or not shoot much...

    Oldest we ever had one make it was 18. My very favorite one I ever knew is now 14 and it good health, but obviously not as spry as he once was. I dread the day I know is coming.

    Some of the titles are more common than others and hence, cheaper and easier to find. The Pearl Harbor one was the first I read as a kid and I read it over and over, I think I was in the fourt grade. These and similar ones seem to be highly sought...

    You'll do better looking in the smaller shops rather than big chains like Firestone. Watch for roof crews and building demos. Usually some lead at these. Most productive and cheapest is mining a public pistol range. The one I'm a member of...

    Opinions? There is a very basic one in good shape used near me that is priced so cheap I almost can't see how I can afford not to pick it up.

    Throat dimensions are more important. You get more and better information from a cerrosafe casting than slugging a bore anyway.
