    Good days and bad ones. The good news is she continues to lose weight on her diet. Her doctor had her cut her Metformin dose in half after seeing her and seeing her glucose numbers. This is all good long term news. Just going to take some time to...

    Bit pricey for my taste. I really can't see buying one in 5.56. 7.62x39 I already have a SKS plus a handi rifle. Also have .300BO handi rifle. The 8mm Kurtz is interesting but not interesting enough to get around the price tag. While I agree that it...

    Gabapentin worked but she was seeing and hearing all kinds of things that were not there. Lyrica is her main one along with some codine 4's for pain.

    I had a black lab that I was teaching to retrieve when harvest season came. We did most of the training after 10 at night when I got home. A year later I could handle and throw a quarter, or a single car key, with her eyes covered into an uncut...

    I agree with Don Verna. My 12 ga buckshot loads are more tactical loads. Lower speed, lower recoil, 9 pellets of #1 buck (30 caliber) with cornmeal filler and an overshot card. Inside the house my 12 ga 879 wingmaster is loaded with 5 rounds of...

    I agree with garandrus, you want bullet size 1 to 3 thousands bigger than the biggest dimension. So in your case you would be looking at .442 to 443. That is too much too big for a standard .44mag cast boolit. If you had a .442 size die you...

    I also use a damp towel from time to time on the 2 cavity molds. The 6 cav's don't seem to have that problem. Most sessions I will only touch it to the towel 2 or 3 times in a session to cool it down a bit. I do tend to not run my pot hot as...

    Dad always aged his beef for at least 13 days, longer if he could find a butcher that would do it. Deer always got skinned before they froze, deboned, hauled home from the farm in deboned quarters in large black plastic garbage bags. Final...

    I use a q-tip and hand sanitizer. Lots of that for sale at the dollar store. Be a buck and a quarter now instead of a buck. Still pretty cost effective.
