    The rebated area it too long for me to be interested in this. Same for the O-ring groove. I am not interested in using O-ring but it could be viewed as lube groove but that begs to ask the question what's the fascinating with equaling the amount...

    The original first design was almost perfect except the rebated area is longer than needed. I believe that can be seen in post #17. Traditional designs that have withstood the test of time over the past 160 years are still around because...

    The Lee Collet Neck sizers are fairly common with the long Range shooters. So are QC problems and wear issues. Had to send one back when new due to QC issues. After I received a couple of good ones they both started to have issues at around 5,000...

    Same for me in 1975 - 1978. Started at the Standard station day after my 15th B-day. Purchased myself a car on my 16th B-day with the money I earned. I got my drives license in the morning and went to work that afternoon and evening. On...

    Yes. https://gunbelts.com/blog/federal-and-state-ammunition-laws/ Anyone who imports or manufactures ammunition must file an application for, and receive, a license to do so, and must pay an annual fee. Licensed firearms dealers may not sell...

    Hardly overkill for that application particularly if they are going to be sold.

    That is the funniest thing I've seen on the web today. Reality is for most application most dies are satisfactory. When you get into the higher precision rifle demands Lee is conspicuously absent for the equipment lists of the winners. I wonder...

    If I remember correctly he is out of Canada. I tried to contact him several years ago with no luck. Still would like one.

    I purchased most of mine off of eBay. I have a MAHR GAGE CO and Carl Zeiss 0-1 from eBay that cost me about the same as a medium quality standard mic. Same for my thread mic's. If you watch long enough there are still great deals to be had on the...

    Indicating Micrometer is the proper term but the are commonly referred to as pressure mics. When used as a direct reading mic the resolution is no better than a standard mic except the pressure is more consistent. When used as a comparator...

    Nothing wrong with that as long as you hold the merchandise until the check clears. Normally it takes around ten days. The bank will cash them and when they discover they are fake they will take the money out of your account. A buddy got burnt...

    Everyone has a supervisor. The chain of command works, sometimes you may need to go thru several levels. I had an issue in remote Alaska with sending a rifle to myself and I lacked time as my plane left in a couple of hours. I went directly to...

    If you cash it at the bank and its a fake the bank takes the money back and you are SOL if you sent the item. If the PO takes a fake they lost the money not you.

    They are required to cash them subject to cash availability. For larger amounts I always call before and make arrangements. I have have been told they will never have that amount twice. After a call to the USPS Postal Service Customer Service...

    Agreed 100%. The real test is if and/win a glued joint fails did the glue fail or did the would next to the joint fail? Past that it's overkill and as stated cleaning the runout can an issue. I have been using West Systems Epoxy as a stock finish...

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.
