  1. yes I have the magnet, but we all know it's a drag trying to seperate the pins from the brass,,,  I have the blue seperator that "spins"   but that throws them all over if you go to fast,,,


    now,  I'm lucky, have a barn that I do my tumbling in,,,,   now I fill the blue "box" with enough water to cover at least a third of the basket,,, then I slowly spin it,,,  very few pins left in the basket,,,,   then I pour the water into a 5 gallon bucket of into the gravel,,, carefully so that the pins stay in the container,,,     much easier and quicker  and rinses the brass really well

  2. ok, I"m cheap,,, a bought a hard shell golf bag and some 4" foam.   fits 4 long guns, 4 hand guns,,,,   when you drag it into a hotel, it does't raise eyebrows,  and if I leave it in the car,  I strap it down,    I've got to come up witha better locking system tho...



  3. I watched KK do the same thing,,, I kept telling him to put it down,,,,   the gunsmith on the property supposedly cleared it and the next time KK tried to shoot it, he put it down immediately,,,,  he threw it down the first time like a kid throwing a cat that had scratched him!!

  4. another cause for an Out of Battery is,  a bulge in the case,    as the round is being chambered, it stops suddenly as does the bolt, but the firing pin doesn't and fires the round,,,,


    or,, once I had a squib that hung up just into the rifling,, I didn't hear it and chambered another round, then it was as the above,  firing pin had enough energy to continue and fired the round,,, which upon exploding, ruptured the round below it,,,, dbl the sound, good thing it was a marlin,,, no damage


    and I had a bolt extention pin break once,, forcing the firing pin forward and locked,,,, fired upon closing the rifle,,,, at the ULT (i knew something had broken on the line, declared it broken, but didn't know what,,,,)


    as a TO if a shooter is trying to jiggle the lever with force, I tell them to lay it down, if they don't, I back away,,,,

  5. I've had a couple boxes of estate, 12 g 1 1/8 oz  1145 fps, for a while and din't use them because thay are quite a bit stouter than my reloads..  BUT


    I was comparing them physically to my AAs,,,  they are close to .010 smaller in diameter than my AAs,,,  I used them on occassion at GOA this weekend, especially on stages that required a different shuck than I normally do,,, use they do kick more, but, they fly out of my sxs compared to my AAs,,, 


    guess I won't be throwing the hulls away after all

  6. Guns of August is over, but the memories will last a long time.


    The weather was GREAT!!


    the match itself was well written and fun


    real electric in the campground!!!


    the pot luck in the campground was like a high priced buffet,, too bad my tummy wasn't in the mood!!!   But Max did help that with his excellent services and libations!


    The saturday meal, a a cookout by the crew was excellent


    got to hang out with some of the best people in SASS


    The results were ready quickly and the presentation moved right along..



    Thank you to all who had a hand in a great match!!
