    Back nearly fifty years ago, myself and some friends used to hunt rattlesnakes. At that time, you could milk them in the field, and then sell the venom to the hospital for very good money per gram. Then the rules changed, and the snakes had to be...

    When you get right down to it, fossil fuel vehicles will be around until the price and efficiency is at a point where people prefer the electric vehicles. Buggy whip factories didn't go out of business because they were outlawed. People just decided...

    That's a Lyman mold, so if it's still being made it should be available from any distributor of Lyman molds.

    Alox 'not available' because? Not legal or simply not carried? There are several sources for mail order, if it can be legally delivered.

    I think the worst part was "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?" Complete and perfect union in the Godhead from eternity past broken at that moment. I can't imagine the effect.

    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.

    Electric vehicles will be great, as long as you don't need a heater or air conditioner. Around here, you need both the same day.

    Not sure as to the why but they did use multiple primers sizes during that time frame. Had some GI 1940's era 45 ACP that used different sized than standard primers. I believe the groove is RA's method of crimping. ...
