    There is no guarantee that tomorrow will come. I've lost 9 friends in the last 2 years. For longer trips like that I found it's cheaper to rent a fuel-efficient vehicle and you have no wear and tear on yours.

    Reloaders come in all experience and knowledge levels. Application generally drives requirements. Things like cowboy action have very low accuracy requirement and most any ammo will do as long as it's safe. Long Range benchrest or F-Class...

    Dennis Demille was the original designer of the 6.5 Creedmoor. It was developed for the specific purpose of NRA Highpower Competition. Same for the 260 Remington. That was designed by Jim Carmichel and called the 260 Panther. The issues with...

    Being forced to purchase a pound or two is a killer due to Hazmat. Normally I never order less than 32 pounds at a time.

    Yup, I just placed an order last night and that's what I did. I did need it in 2 days so I paid extra for that. Shipping in general over the last couple of years has gotten really slow except for Amazon and they use their own trucks or they...

    Depends on the person I received them from. Most people think nothing of hopping into a vehicle with someone else driving yet they don't trust this same person's reloads. Odds are far greater that they will hurt or kill you in their vehicle verse...

    Just watched the Lunar eclispe from the deck. I got lucky and also spotted one very good meteor trail and one that I am guessing was a comet. It had the longest length and longest lasting trail I have seen.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread AR Triggers in Factory Rifles
    I mostly work on NRA Service and Match AR's. For Service rifle a #4.5 trigger is required. That is one of the reasons two stage are so popular. When you preload the first stage to about 3 pounds the break only requires 1 1/2 pounds. For my Match...

    I have been able to get fairly decent trigger pulls on stock triggers with replacement springs and stoning/polishing the sear. That being said most aftermarket triggers are far superior to most tuned stock triggers. Single stage verse two stage...

    The best clean-up for pyrodex is throw it in the garbage. :bigsmyl2: I hate that stuff. Seriously, those 40/65 cases are worth the hard effort to save them. I would try a soak in water and soap detergent overnight.
