  1. thank for letting me know. I never heard that and I humbly stand corrected.
  2. At least till next week you can buy a gun. But good "ol Uncle Sam will tell you what you can have, what it looks like, and how many rounds it can hold. Oh yea, if you can't hunt with it, it's not allowed. In some places the steel poppers we use in USPSA are not allowed to have tops on them. The poppers look like people and the little ones look like children. Keep up the good work dems. It won't be long until there will be no middle class, and we'll all be on our knees begging to Uncle Sam. FIX THE FRAUD IN THE VOTING SYSTEM NOW!
  3. BOY! ain't this a great country to live in.
  4. If I'm not mistaken the dems. Got the whole congress, and the Presidency. If that's the case, they're going to be picking them up in a year of so. Most Americans want to be good law biding citizens and a lot of others will turn guns in just not to be felons. So they've got most of us coming or going. All they have to do is pick up the 4473 forms from the dealers. They can't say no to the ATF.
  5. I started out with a rock chucker [ https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1013036852?pid=937051]. Used it for many years as my only reloader. It still serves my well with many tasks, including reloading rifle cases, reforming cases from one to another. Example is like was said forming 8 millimeter cases from 30/06. For pistol I use my Dillon 650. Much easier for 9, 38 spl, 40, and 45. A single station press would never keep up with demand. I shoot a lot of USPSA practical pistol. Please stay away from Lee loaders. They aren't very well made and wear out quickly[ just my opinion ] I
  6. sorry, I'm still pissed off at the butt kissing Colt is giving the government on the AR 15. I won't even give them a thought until they start making the AR 15 available the general public
  7. Your focus is on the front sight. The rear sight and the target are slightly out of focus. For USPSA and other competition red dots are great. For personal protection,and this is only my opinion, red dots are only something else to worry about.
  8. check your cartridge after loading. hat will tell you if the neck wall thickness is off or maybe the OL too long.
  9. Clean out the gas ports with pipe cleaners. Works great
  10. What are you loading for? Trap and skeet, or hunting? I only recommend Lee to those I don't like. Mec is the way to go. The one to get is determined by what you're going to do. Trap and skeet are high demand on shells and shot size. 2 3/4 - 3 Dram and 7 1/2 to 9 in shot size. Hunting goes to 3 1/4- 3 3/8 dram and shot size goes nuts from there. 7 1/2 for birds, 6 to 5 for rabbit [ hard to find ] and expensive as all get out. Then there are slugs. You can cast your own. The biggest thing is different size shot and wads. Mec has low production presses like the mec jr, and production press
  11. ARE YOU SH//ing me Jimmy!!! If that isn't price gouging I don't know what it is. I've got a few thousand down stairs I"m trade for SPP.
  12. Been loading for over 50 years. Great past time. Good way to get away from the pressures from work and the way my wife greeted me at the door coming home, " Do you know what your boys did today!" Started out with a RCBS rock chucker press and added on from there. I now still load on it and Dillon 650. Got 14 different die sets for that and maybe half that many that I still load on my rock chucker. Started casting my own bullets a couple years into loading. I now have 15-20 sets of 4 cavity Lyman molds a real nice sizing machine. It's been a great hobby for a lot of years. Sur
