    I'll take your word for it, I assumed 450 because it doesn't look like either of my 550 powder measures or my SDB powder measure. I'll correct my listing. Thanks!

    Just picked up my very vintage Benjamin .22 air rifle that they resealed and resoldered the barrel. Before I left the shop, they has to pump it up and shoot it one last time one last lime to verify their work. Nice guys in the middle of Ohio...

    Crimped primers throws a kink in the safe removal of live primers so they can be usable. Don't know if it's doable or not. On the other hand, I've done a 1000+ primer salvages over the years on commercial ammo. 700 dead guy 44 mag large...

    I've done it, but it's been a couple of years. I think I ran them into a 300 H&H die first. Take it back to closer to a straight (er) profile then reestablish the shoulder with the 375 H&H die. Slowly into the die, in an 1/8", out turn a 1/4 turn...

    Woodleighs are already here, load some up tonight. With luck give them a go tomorrow. The .408 already on the shelf here shot half minute of cape buffalo on Friday. No crossers, just shot great. With luck the.410 diameter will do the same. And...

    The state of Michigan has multiple large public ranges around the state. Vandalism is almost non-existent. They are only open when there is a range officer(s) on duty. The one closest to me usually has 2-3 DNR officers on duty. It is a clean well...

    I would think it's easier there than southeast Michigan, almost dead flat here. From one end of the county elevation change is less than 50 feet, probably closer to 30 feet. Any range here entails serious dirt work for backstop and sound control. ...

    Didn't know unicorns were that plentiful, already have the Woodleighs on order and looks like the DGX's may be more available than I was lead to believe. Ain't life grand?
