  1. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Unfortunately, I'm traveling the next two weeks so I won't be able to do any ordering until I get back. I may just pick up Lee 6 cavity molds when I get back if my per diem money actually comes in (eat cheap and save the money for toys).
  2. Case Trimmer Rental?

    I use my lathe If using a Lee trimmer - chuck the cutter in a drill (clamp it to a table) and you can get some good throughput
  3. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Cast up 12 lbs of 126gr 9mm - need to look at a larger mold This one is on sale but not sure if 8 cavity is something I want to swing around for hours. 9mm/38cal SWC – HG275 Clone 8 Cavity Bevel base mold - NO LUBE GROOVE ~ MP-molds Also modelled up a 40 S&W seater die - a quick change to my 45...
  4. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Loaded up 500 9mm that I had cast and coated this last week. Crushed two primers - think I missed a couple of crimped cases when sorting the brass. A couple of stoppages for upside down cases but not bad for a couple of hours work on the loadmaster. Going on travel for work again so hopefully...
  5. Facebook Glitch Reveals Greta Thunburg's Father Posting As Teenage Climate Activist

    You would be amazed at what a 16 year old Aspie can produce... Is she writing it, probably not, but don't underestimate the capacity of intense singular focus.
  6. Two General Motors engineers arrested for street racing in 2020 Corvette Stingrays 120 MPH in a 45 MPH Zone

    I want one but it's too small to live in after the divorce 😭 There was probably zero public safety risk but for the police, rules is rules...
  7. Wrong handed AR shooting solutions

    As a south-paw, I've never had any issue using the platform other than catching brass down the shirt or having it land on my arm while prone. To the contrary, I find that you can respond to a stoppage easier because you can see the bolt with your non-dominant eye while pulling the charging...
  8. Court rules Student debt is dischargeable in Bankruptcy

    That $8k/yr number is what my son is paying for a double major engineering degree (electrical/computer) after academic scholarships. Any training that costs more than 1.5-2 years of starting salary to complete is overpriced.
  9. bullet seat/crimp die

    Made my own powder check on the lathe - I sits in the cabinet now - doesn't tell you anything that watching the case doesn't.
  10. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Had some tasks to complete at church so went to early service while the family went to a layer service - gave me time to cast 15 lbs and refill the pot. Now need the patience to not rush coating them on a cold rainy day.
  11. $2k for a few toys

    Also left hand, so is my brother, my son, one of my two nephews, and dad. So my Kimber is ambi
  12. Throw me some good vibes folks

    Get on a plane - you've only got one dad. All I have left of mine is stuff and memories - even though he was pretty much an a**h*** at times, I miss the hell out of him.
  13. $2k for a few toys

    And that's the best part - was talking about getting something in 45 with my brother and he handed it to me. And it was my Dad's 😁
  14. $2k for a few toys

    You know what sucks - I'm shipping out for for work travel so I won't have time. But what doesn't suck is that travel is to Hawaii 😜😜😜😜 I need to pick up a set of dies and settle on a mold so that I can start reloading 45
  15. Teacher throws kid out of class

    I've been in some 'well managed' class rooms - don't care who the instructor was, the situation was going to get ugly. Happens when the administration decides to integrate students that have no business in the same classroom - still feel sorry for the teacher but I did like getting out in March...
