    I like my Model 60SB - but I have other .22 rifles I like more.

    Yep, beats spending hours of Google-fu! I have one Hi-Point - the M995 Carbine, and really like
    it.Thanks for the info - added it to my Favorites list. :cool:

    My opinion is to NEVER try to ammortise the cost of the gear into your ammo costs. Once you add
    another caliber or three, it gets skewed off. Just call it an upfront equipment cost and leave
    it at tha...

    Far better, IMHO, to trade or sell the Berdan primers and get the boxer cases. I reload the
    Remington and Winchester commercial brass, and my SKS's like the 150 grain SP loads.

    We will miss those extra F-22 Raptors when the Chinese get bolder and start attacking our
    interests and allies.The F-35 is a boondoggle waiting to fail. Another Senate-approved
    committee-designed comp...

    I rather liked "Electraglide in Blue" with Robert Blake (pre-Beretta).Billy Green Bush as his
    partner who goes bad.Sad ending though........ "Blue Thunder" with Roy Sheider was a fun romp.
    Think they ...

    The goobs just can't understand - forcing unproven and quirky 'High Tech' on people does NOT
    work. Let the market drive it, not LAWS.Reminds me of Gov. Jeb Bush and his much-vaunted
    "ASPIRE" Floridawi...

  • Posted in thread: 45 cal issue. on 01-15-2012 at 04:58 PM
    Yep, reminds me of some .45ACP I bought from a reloader buddy years ago, before I began
    loading. He didn't trim the lead at the case mouth, and it was 'messy'. I had to trim the lead
    from it before it...

    Cull the brass into two basic piles - look in the case to see if it has two small holes (NOT
    reloadable) or one larger hole (reloadable). Once you divvy out the calibers, you may have
    something a relo...

  • Posted in thread: Primer Pocket Cleaner on 01-15-2012 at 04:49 PM
    I use both handheld pocket cleaners, and the Lyman Case Prep tool (a glorified cordless
    screwdriver with gun-specific bits). If doing a big lot of brass, the Lyman gets the job.There
    are a lot of pock...
