  1. The lost Art is with reloaders that come to the process with one or two caliber firearms and only have a pound or two of ABC or XYZ powder ... don’t buy a reloading manual or read the vendor loading tables ... then come to the forums wanting to know which of the only powder they have for a load and further never specify the bullet weight So, the bottom line is They Don’t Buy a reloading manual for 30 bucks or Read vendor tables before they jump into the reloading process. So candidly, Sympathy can be found in the dictionary between s**t and syphilis for there lack of due deliginces

  15. The best indicator if and when this pandemic is going to correct is keep your eye on the FBI monthly NICS checks. I historically watched numbers increase and got the credit card out for reloading & powders on the Wish List. Didn't have to rush to the scrap yard for lead either.... over 1700 lbs of various alloys, all marked on 6 lb ingots plus plenty of reloads and lubed/naked cast bullets for every firearm in the safes ... shot shells also. It's pretty boring now not having to cast and reload Truthfully, I really feel sorry for those new SASS members and those that didn'

  22. The key to easy shucking of USED spent shot shells, irregardless of rib or smooth hulls is ... the MEC Size Master ... The sizing station accommodates both high or low brass heads, and the highly accurate "Power-Ring" collet sizer returns every base to factory specifications. An eight-fingered collet squeezes the base back to original dimensions, then opens up quickly to release the shell.
  23. Snakebite .... line a 100 Cowboys up and say the word ACTIV and 99 will shout ... Say What? The "one" will be me .... have about 5 hundred hulls, 20 and 12ga plus the last wads available for sale ... red, yellow and white and the loading data for each. They are the only hull I use for waterfowling ... no rusted bases Was a sad day when Fiocci bought them out and discontinued making them
