  1.  It's always wise to have at least two manuals (or more) to compare data. I ran across a conflict on a 45 Colt load once, the starting load in one manual was very close to the max load in another. I checked the powder manufacture's site to see which one was correct, or a least close.

     The biggest mistake I made when I started reloading was using one manual, Speer I think.  It didn't have any data for cast bullets, so me being the bright individual I was at the time, and pre-internet, I figured a 200 gr bullet was a 200 gr bullet regardless of being cast or jacketed.  WRONG

     I didn't blow anything up or lose any appendages but it was lesson learned.  freaked-out-smiley-emoticon.gif

  2.  We mustn't let both sides of an issue get out. icon-rolleyes-1.gif

    YouTube is banning all content the platform says is spreading misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine.

    The video-sharing platform gave examples of content falsely claiming the coronavirus vaccine is dangerous or causes chronic health issues; claims that the vaccine causes autism; claims that the vaccine does not reduce transmission of COVID-19; claims that the vaccine causes infertility and so on.

    My favorite line.....which I would consider as a joke.

    "Working closely with health authorities, we looked to balance our commitment to an open platform with the need to remove egregious harmful content,"

    Rossi 92 Trapper .357 Magnum. 


     I looked for one of these for several years and finally had to settle for a 20 incher. 

    I'm going to have to find another lever, you have one more than me  icon-smile-1.gif

    I've only got one Winchester in .22 mag, 2 Rossi's in .45 Colt (1 24" and 1 16"), 1 Rossi in .357 (20") and a Henry .22. I sold both my Winchester 30-30s a few months ago.

  4.  The only used lever guns I see anymore are either 30-30 or .22 and even they are getting hard to find. The Henry's appear to be of outstanding equality and craftsmanship but are much heavier than the Rossi, and Italian clones. 

     Buds has a few Cimarron's in stock but they're up there in the 4 digits and the Sportsman's outdoor superstore has a Rossi 92 in 44 mag for a little over $700.

     You might want to wait until hunting season is over, there might be a few more showing up then.

  5.  While I was in the Navy all we ever got was butter, no margarine. My wife tried for years to wean me off of it to no avail. She also tried to feed me that watered down crap called skim or 2% milk. No luck there either.  icon-smile-1.gif

    I like that you bring this up. If a kid in a class has a peanut allergy no one is allowed to bring peanuts to class. 

    a little Inconvenience to protect those of us who can have severe consequences. Huh.

  7.  This is somewhat like mandating that everyone has to eat 4-5 oz. of peanuts a week regardless of allergies and side effects so some folks could get kickbacks from the industry. Most would be fine, a lot would get sick and some would die. The ones in charge wouldn't care as long as the money kept coming in. These people don't care what-so-ever about the results and the people affected.

    The White House said it "strongly opposes" a provision in the 2022 defense spending bill that would block the Pentagon from dishonorably discharging a service member who refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

    Section 716 of the NDAA would prohibit service members who are discharged over vaccine refusal from receiving anything other than an honorable discharge, noting that "many Americans have reservations about taking a vaccine that has only been available for less than a year."



  9.  I wonder how long it will take the FDA to pull this from their "Approved" list if it's proven to work  whistle.gif

    A gout drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could reportedly show promise in fighting the coronavirus.

    According to a recent study from the University of Georgia (UGA) published in Nature's Scientific Reports, probenecid has potent antiviral properties that make the oral medication a prime candidate to combat not only SARS-CoV-2 infection but other common and deadly respiratory viruses.

    The school noted that probenecid is primarily used to treat gout and has been on the market for more than 40 years, with minimal side effects to patients.
