    It was meant to be a laughing comment - I don't believe that I could have gone back to sleep. It's a shame that the Mike's of the world can't get together and live in their own little community. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    Yes I do and no I'm not. I have several windows open and fans behind my back blowing towards them. I've had lead levels drawn on me several times and am on the low end of the normal range. Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    Most of all of my reloading and casting endeavours take place long after most folks are in bed. I have a very well lit room and sort of lose myself for a few hours. I sure hope there aren't any negative effects? Sent from my Pixel 5 using...

    I have had a fascination with the 1895 since a very young age. I own/have owned an embarrassing number of them. I have had at least one in each of the originally offered chamberings (except 33 WCF - I've never even seen one). My favourite by far...

    Can also use 444 Marlin. There was a thread on this a number of years back that said it's actually easier than the 307 route. All that said, my nephew has a Marlin in 356 Winchester that works quite well with 358 Winchester brass - but I'm told...
