    There is a guy who posts on Facebook, on the black powder pages. He makes some very nice wheel locks. "Cheap" for a quality lock is something you should never look for.

    Just a follow-up on this for those that are interested. Life isn't 100% black and white. If you believe it's a good idea to sell to people that appear to be scripted, unstable or unsafe I really don't know what to tell you other than you will...

    The rule has always been if you change lot numbers reduce by 10% and start again. I would do at least that.

    Lyman #45 was my first and like you the Speer #80 was my second purchased in late 71 or early 72. I've kept every manual I have ever owned with the exception the the two P.O. Ackley books. In the past Lee has had some beyond warm loads.

    Nope sounding scripted and coming back an hour later are two red flags. Just a guess but if she had completed the purchase on the first visit chances are good there would have been zero issues. We have cameras on the parking lot and a monitor to...

    She's pretty well known around here. Directly from one of her family members. I think the guy she is talking about is the manager for the gun area. I've heard a lot of other stories about odd service at that store.

    So since Speer made the #8 we should blindly follow it?????????? So you're a fool if you follow it and a fool if you don't? Interesting perspective.

    It all depends on what you want the cartridge to do. The 243 IMO, will not be improved on much by 55 gr bullets and 110+ weight bullets. IMO, If you want heavier bullets go to a larger diameter, 260 Remington, 7mm 08 or such. Both of the latter...

    It is not a good idea to remove nipples on cap locks. It will cause thread wear, and they will not seat properly after much use.

    It depends what gun I am shooting. My Ruger LCP 380 is shot at 21 feet to 50 feet. My XP-100's are shot out to 500 yards. My bullseye guns are preferred at 50 yards but if 25 yard is all that is available that is what they are shot at.

I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.
