    You'll know when you over cook little boolits. They become sculptures. :shock: nice coverage, I like that green too. I mix it at 2 tsp to 1tsp with Smokes silver and get a blue spruce green that's nice too.

    My Grandmother was very good with a hoe. She'd decapitate one in a heartbeat and bury the heads. The farm dog got the rest. We only have rattlesnakes here, I find a 20ga shotgun does a pretty good job too, just poke them till they bite the barrel...

    243winxb. You just hit it out of the park. If you headspace a belted case on the neck the case bulges above the belt an the cartridge will not seat in the chamber. A 300 Wby has a very well defined shoulder but it still bulges even with neck sizing,...

    I have salvaged probably 100 7mm Rem mag cases using the tool Mustang shows. I use it in my 300 wby too. My 7mm cases start to get hard to chamber after the 3rd reload. I load to mag factory velocities or a tad over but not near max. I get 2 more...

    That's kind of what I was hinting at. It never lasts long enough to go bad. I hide it in the freezer from the Grandkids but they have found my stash so when I go out to get some is is usually gone. Oh well at least they like it. May try ghost...

    Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I kicked it up to the staff and no one has an idea that will allow you to do what you are trying. It seems the only way to reduce the size is as you already knew, download, resize, upload to CB. If you find...

    I would like to have it for loading in a 410 shotgun, unless someone else needs it more. I'll even email you a paid SFRB shipping label. PM me your email address if I get it and your information for the return address. And I'll get it sent to you.

    I shoot 17 Hornet and as easy as it it to crush the necks when seating bullets, I think you would just destroy them. I agree with farmbif a trade for 22 Hornet or sell to buy new is your best bet. 17's are hard to find too.
