  1. This prepped brass has some of the best seating primer pockets I've ever worked with. They seat with just the right tension.
  2. Mine are sitting in several filled orange 5 gallon Home Depot buckets. I try to get the encouragement to prep them. But so far I just order more that already are. Someday, maybe. Someday.
  3. The problem is when you add this all up. When you buy fully prepped brass it's ready to load. Take it out of the box and run it through the Dillon. I remove the resizing die and replace it with a decapping die that assures the flash hole is clear of any obstructions before I seat the primer. Compared to prepping once fired brass, it's a boatload of work for not much money saved. I don't care how you do it. You have to resize and deprime. Then you have to trim to length. Then you have to swage out the primer pocket. Then you have to tumble to clean and polish, as well as remove all of the resizing lubricant from the case, and the inside of the neck. You also have to chamfer the inside and outside of the case neck. No matter how you look at it, that's a lot of work. For the little amount more for fully prepped brass, it's not worth the time and effort to do it yourself. I realize that even after I bought all of the fancy tools to make it go faster. It still doesn't go as fast as from the box, right into the press.
  4. I have zero vested interest in MS Brass. I'm simply passing along a good company that offers good brass at a fair price. If you can find better cheaper, go for it. If not, then pay more. Either way it makes no difference to me.

    As is the crossbolt "safety" they started putting on all the new Marlin lever guns. Just plain lawyer dumb.
  6. If my 1911 cup had not runnith over, I would take a shot on one of these. The plastic grips would be the first to go.
  7. I have a Beretta / Wilson Combat Brigadier Model 92 that is Gallatin marked. It was expensive, and is a great shooting / handling weapon. I'm not sure where the standard Beretta 92's are made.
  8. I found these 2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Standard-RIG-VERTICAL-DOUBLE-Dual-Shoulder-Holster-BERETTA-92FS-USA-/200600249788 https://www.craftholsters.com/double-vertical-roto-shoulder-holster
  9. I think this is where the James Bond guitar music kicks in.
  10. I found a really good supplier of fully prepped .223 / 5.56 MM rifle brass. This stuff is priced good. And is delivered, (free shipping), via. USPS Priority Mail in just a few days. And it comes ready to load. Fully cleaned inside and out, by wet tumbling in Stainless Steel pins. Fully trimmed, resized, with the primer pockets swaged. All that's left is to run it through the Dillon. All I did additional was to chamfer the case mouths with a VLD Chamfer Tool on my RCBS Case Prep Center to allow easier bullet seating. The primers seat beautifully in these cases, with just the right amount of pressure. All to the proper depth. And none stand proud. You can't beat the price. I bought 2,500 rounds for just $179.00. (It's $10.00 more now, and they're showing, "out of stock" at the moment. But they resupply fast. I'm going to order more as soon as they get more in. I load this stuff by the 30 pound bowl full, with the bulk 6,000 round boxed, Hornady 55 Gr. FMJ Boat Tail. With Hogdon CFE 223 Powder. That stuff burns clean and accurate. But more importantly, it flows through a Dillon powder measure like water. From there it goes into .50 Cal ammo cans. This ammo runs perfectly in all of my AR's. And it delivers MOA groups in calm conditions, in both my CZ-527 and Marlin X-7 bolt guns. For this price it just doesn't pay to buy non prepped brass any more. Resizing and prepping brass is the biggest PITA in reloading. This stuff makes your time at the reloading bench much more productive. All of the loaded rounds gage properly in my Dillon Case Gauge. And they chamber effortlessly. https://msprocessedbrass.com/product-category/rifle-brass
  11. Yikes! I paid $89.00 each for both of these hex receiver Tula's a few years back. And both came with bayonets and all of the accessories. In all but perfect condition.
  12. That's not a bad idea.... If I could find one.
  13. The Mark IV's are really nice guns. I purchased both the Hunter, as well as the Bill Ruger Limited Edition Competition Model that came with the matching knife.
  14. I found a good deal on a Beretta 92-FS Compact from Gunprime, so I ordered a pair of them. They shipped out quickly, and my FFL got them in just a couple of days. I've been looking for a 92 Compact for a while. But most of the places around here were either out of stock, or else they flat out wanted too much. I got these for $428.99 each, brand new in the box. A hell of a deal. They shipped with 2, 13 round magazines, and are Italian made guns. I replaced the plastic grips with the factory Beretta Walnut grips that I picked up from Gnarly Gorilla. The Walnut grips really richen up the looks of these Beretta's. I also got a few of the X-Grip Magazine Adapters from Greg Cote. They allow the use of the full size 15 and 17 round magazines in the compact's without sticking out of the bottom of the gun. And they're not much longer than the 13 round magazines supplied with the pinky rest. Now both my wife and I will each have our own. So all in all it was a good day. These are some pictures of them as they came from the factory. And with the Walnut grips and magazine adapters installed. https://gunprime.com/product/beretta-92fs-compact-92-fs-js92f850m/ https://gnarlygorilla.com/beretta-factory-replacement-part-beretta-92-96-compact-wood-grips-drop-in-replacement-walnut/ http://gregcotellc.com/cart/xgrip-adapter-by-fdi-c-142/xgrip-beretta-92fs-compact-xgrip-xgbr92c-p-1555.html
