    Enjoyed the read. I have not found the small remaining dimple to be an issue (Large Rifle and Small Rifle primer rebuilds) other than making sure one knows and make any loaded ammo as being reloaded with rebuilt primers. After a couple of weeks,...

    Bidum has increased the money supply by about 35%. The increase in the money supply is the definition of inflation. The increase in the cost of goods and services is the result of inflation. Supply and demand of goods and services also affects their...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread Black Friday deals? in Our Town
    Going to go out and buy (2) 50 Cal ammo cans at Cabellas today. About the ONLY Black Friday deal published that seemed to be a deal. Lots of ads in my e-mail box for Guns and Gun stuff - but despite the XX% off - nothing looked like a deal. A...

    I put the frozen Turkey out to thaw Monday. Let the 18 Wild Turkey out in the Front Yard keep running wild. I am thankful to live in a country where our poor are overweight and some too lazy to get up out of the chair to change the TV Chanel - I...

    I'm still using a 10lb drip o matic that I bought in the mid 70s. I added a weight to the stopper rod which helped a lot but it still drips a bit now and then. I have since got another 10lb and a 20 lb, both of which work ok but I have never used...

    I guess we are lucky here. The deer population is very high. If I drive from Kalispell to Eureka in the evening, I usually count from 50 to 150 deer.

    Interesting. Every Failing Project/Program I ever took over used similar language to describe how they had gotten into their predicament - failing to do continual analysis, long rage planning, Risk evaluation and Risk Management, and having Plan...

    If CCI shut down ammo line because "They Were Out of Primers"; then someone in management needs to be fired. They manufacture primers. What could be out of stock (and why) that they can not make primers? If you know that you have a "REPORTED" 2...

    rbuck351 replied to a thread Shallow Primer Pockets in Our Town
    I have two of the Sinclair uniformer tools (small and lg rifle) and they are great. I use mine in a mini lathe and just push the case on the tool. I was surprised how uneven the factory primer pockets are.

    Wonder what that RF energy is doing to your masculinity? Seriously - I have "Checked" my electronic scales with provided "Check Weights" and found them to be correct after doing a TARE on the scale. That does not address the Wandering Scale...

    There is a fair amount of difference in primer pocket depth even in one batch of cases. I have a Sinclair primer pocket cutter that cuts pockets to a preset depth. Some cases cut quite a bit and others don't completely clean up. I seat primers...

    I suspect that the electronic scales DO degrade over time. I have a Frankford arsenal and an AWS electronic scale. Both will "Wander" around + or - 0.1 or 0.2 grains with both powder & bolts being weighed. Recently the Frankford Arsenal has begun...

    Not sure what the "New Price" for primers will be. But observable trends indicate it will not be $10.00 per 100. Local Murdochs has had boxes of 1000 CCI #BR4 Small Rifle Bench Rest Primers on the top of the counter for about 3 weeks at a price of...
