    Never ever wear gloves around turning spindles. If the glove catches you will have serious problems. Watched a guy lose an arm when his glove caught.

    Try a file first if too hard use abrasive paper on sanding block spinning it in the drill chuck or the Dremel. The hand held Dremel with an underdressed stone generally will not leave the finish you are looking for.

    Spot on. The FFL holder has the LEGAL right to deny a sale for any reason period. No explanation required from the legal aspect. From the business side it does have ramification. Bartenders are in a very similar situation. If they overserve...

    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...

    Lyman #45 was my first and like you the Speer #8 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...

    Purchasing as a gift is 100% legal providing you are using your own money and the gift recipient is not a prohibited person. Again not taking Cabela's side but any doubt the sales person has on a firearm sale is enough to LEGALLY stop the sale. ...

    People are people and lots of folks start with max loads back then. Same as they do today. I've kept every manual I've owned since 1968. Most manuals have some questionable data in them. That would be why most manuals have a long and...

    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.
