    I've had 2600 plus pounds in my F-250. Buckets of wheelweights. It rode good and handled it just fine. I'm pretty sure that the hitch weight of my gooseneck with the tractor loaded is more than that. Thats a nice score!

    I tip in cash too! I just want to be sure the server gets the tip. I've known establishments that took a % and even a few that kept all of it. What the server does with it tax wise is up to them.

    Economy wise, I would simply put a pencil to it. Browse the Midway site and make a list of equipment and components. Then compare it to the cost of whatever ammo they want to shoot. Loading 9mm will take longer (forever) to pay for itself while...

    I thought it was tight primer pockets. Like I posted I’ve ran into and used Norma rifle brass and never had a problem with it. At least not so small that you can’t get a D capping pin to push the primer out
