    Looking for a #7 Little Dandy Rotor. Iíll end up modifying it so doesnít need to be new. Most places are out of stock, or too high priced.

    Congratulations on your new adventure into cast bullets in a handgun. Even having done it for decades now, I still find it very rewarding. I've taken game with mine, shot competition with them as well. I got off to a rocky start with my first cast...

    Murphy replied to a thread Nickle cases in Our Town
    The only nickel cases I have are 38/357's. In my early days of reloading a case was a case. I didn't sort by head stamp. I'd load up several 100 rounds of blasting ammo and it all worked for my intended purposes. I separate the nickel from the brass...

    Murphy replied to a thread RIP Gov Edwards in Our Town
    Living in far S.E. Oklahoma (not that far from Louisiana), I probably watched more news out of Shreveport than Tulsa or Oklahoma City. Gov. Edwin Edwards was a Jim Dandy no doubt. I was raised in a family with an uncle who spent 22 years in the...

    I haven't attended a gun show in probably 3 years now. I live in the far S.E. corner of Oklahoma, rural with a county seat of 7,000 population. For too many years now, the last shows I attended in my area were flea markets, not gun shows. That, and...

    Depends on the variables. Average deer size in your area, distance, etc. Given the criteria between the .357 JHP versus the solid .44, I'll take the .44. Murphy

    Divorces seldom turn out pretty. I'm sure there is a forum (or 20) dedicated to nothing but divorce nightmare stories. That being said, I've been there, done that. Stuff is stuff, my freedom meant more. I'm pretty sure there's a country song...

    I remember them well. When I began reloading in the late 70's, those were the boxes primers came in. Being in a rural area, there were only 3 shops around the county that sold them. I still have a few trays of them in various sizes. It seems I'm...

    Murphy replied to a thread Greed Kills in Our Town
    I agree. I've been on one well known (to most) auction site for longer than I can remember. The old adage if it looks too good to be true? Pretty much. The seller 'may' have 2 or 3 sales with great feedback. Look at the buyers feedback, typically...

    Hat's off to Al. The only custom molds I own are NOE's. The few times I have felt the need to speak to him, he has always been a champ and one couldn't ask for better. The way I see it, he can be sitting at a desk on a keyboard or on the phone, or...

    Papa Murphy $10 Tuesdays! I cook mine on a pizza stone according to their directions for grilling. @ 425 or so. Keep an eye and use a large pizza peel to give the pizza a 1/4 every 5 minutes until it’s evenly cooked around and the crust is to...

    Don, You're not the only one stuck in the past. My best guess is I started reloading in 1980, thanks to a Lee Whack-A-Mole kit. Okay, not the proper name, but any old timer knows exactly what that is. A friend of mine had a brother who gave a try...

    Murphy replied to a thread Moral quandary in Our Town
    The way I see it, they knew what they were getting into when they signed a contract. I remember watching the first Survivor show back in the 90's. When the second season rolled around, it was pretty boys & girls...'Click'. Haven't watched any...
