    I can’t imagine shooting 100k rounds a year. I’d get bored of shooting. I shoot less now than I did, but I was into about 10k a year for a while, including 22s.

    Ok I now know that I am not the only one that’s ran into this. I guess the bigger question would be does anybody have any idea what purpose it serves. I mean if you look at the pictures I posted it’s obvious to me that the whole is less than half...

    Yep my sentiments exactly. I processed over 4000 pieces of brass yesterday, I’m certainly not gonna lose any sleep over a half a dozen or so Norma ones with tiny flash holes! Right in the scrapbook if they go! I was just real curious I’ve never...

    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

    I have come to believe hunting will be dangerous and a waste of time. The only hunting I intend to do is edible targets of opportunity which get into my garden. For those, I will likely have several appropriate firearms handy. An air rifle for small...

    You cannot legally shoot sparrows as they are native and protected. Starlings though are not protected and can be taken within proper hunting guidelines for your state.
