    I know one thing:In about 8 weeks, unless there is a miracle, all prices are going UP.

    > how many 158gr wadcutters make up 39.5 lbsOh boy, fourth grade math. I'll play:39.5 lbs *
    7000 gn/lb = 276,500 gn.276,500 gn / 158 gn/bullet = 1750 bullets

    Powder, as a per shot cost, is quite low.Bullets are usually 7-25 cents (and can go a lot
    higher as "premium" is added to the name) and primers today are about 3 cents. Only in really
    large magnum rif...

    God, I have decapped many live primers and NEVER had one go off. It takes a really hard WHACK
    to set off a primer. Wear hearing and eye protection if you want to worry.Alternatively, break

    some sort...

    Has any one been killed by clips or magazines while being fired at?

    If one is making an inert dummy round, there should be NO powder or primers at the press.When
    actually loading, one must inspect each case for powder charge. Even running a Lock-Out die, I
    still prefe...

    If you use the exact same gun, exact same lot of powder, the exact same lot of bullets (they
    tweak the design without notification), the exact same COL, and the same primers and cases, you
    might get t...

    If you didn't learn when Clinton was elected, you should have learned when Obama was elected.
    Otherwise, wait a few weeks and see where you are...Personal opinion only: I've seen folks pay
    $1500 for a...
