    Here's a story for you. But, there's stories of bears being killed with 9mm and 22LR too, so take it as you wish. I did a quick web search and found quite a bit of them. https://bowhunting.net/2017/07/45-caliber-round-found-in-bears-skull/

    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 #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...

    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.

    from the web "Speer #8 is often quoted and misunderstood. This is probably the hottest data out there and should NOT be used by beginners. Many of the listed loads are known to be over pressure limits considered safe today, and be used with extreme...

    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.

    Haven't seen it done since the mid 70's but taping a marble or ball bearing on the primer and throwing it down on a hard surface would set it off. The shot normally stayed in the case and base would split open or the shot would basically stay put...
