    I just ordered from Midway with the cheapest shipping. The claim was up to 7 days. It came in 3. I shipped two items with the USPS with claimed delivery of two days. One took a 1 1/2 weeks and the other was 15 days.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Do you have a historical reference for that? I was aware it was discarded as a useless byproduct of making kerosene and discarded before the internal combustion engines created a demand. During the 60's and 70's gas was widely used as a cleaning...

    Those are just video's pulled from the web. Not my site or video's. I do use the rubberband method when I use the 600. I don't use it as much as I did in the past since that operation happens on my Dillon Super 1050.
