    blackthorn replied to a thread Primer Pocket Swage in Our Town
    After I posted this question yesterday I recognized that what you all are saying should have been obvious to me, since primers only come in large/small so there is no variation in the actual primer cavity(s). To answer the question of where I...

    So, I got myself a Dillon primer pocket swage. What has been your experience in terms of case head thickness? I.E. is the thickness the same between say 303 and 30-06 or 8mm? My sense is there will be little if any variation to deal with when...

    When my granddaughter was 7 I gave her a pocket knife. Not a very expensive one but well sharpened and still of good quality, made in Ireland. We were at my cabin and she went outside and attacked a willow tree. Awhile later, she showed up holding...

    This is an irregular shaped hole and the piece is missing. It is about one and a half inches above the butt, on the right side (away from shooter's face) and there is some sort of closed-cell foam that can be moved around inside the stock cavity. I...

    I have a gray/black plastic(?) composite stock with a small (1'x1'+) hole in it. It looks to me as if I can move the plastic foam filler around, allowing me to fill in the hole with a semi liquid filler such as J B Weld. Anybody know if that stuff...

    You can get it at a drug store (expensive) or just go to the canning section at the local food market and look for a product called "Fruit Fresh" (cheap).

    I have carried a pocket knife since I was 8 years old (now I'm 82) and continue to do so. I carry a Utica, 3 blade knife daily and a Puma lock blade when I am camping, hunting or up at my cabin. I would be lost without my knife! I have accumulated...

    I would suggest that you take a good hard look at how you handle stress and any major prior changes in your life. The last two jobs I had from age 43 through 65 were high stress very demanding, both time and psychological wise. Both involved making...

    Yes it does. At least all the ones I checked so far do. There was a bunch of commercial brass as well and I was a bit low on 303 so it is a welcome addition to my stash.

    When things like weather are discussed, it would be nice to know the area for comparison purposes. Also, if there is a request for assistance one might be in a better position to help.

    I will get to look at the shotgun this afternoon. My friend is not a gun-nut like me so he may not have given me the proper serial number. He apparently got the gun in some sort of trade and I think he likely wants to sell it. More later.
