  1. Thunder River Regenages shoots just north of Houston. 

     

    we shoot twice a month, the 2nd and 4th Saturdays.

     

    As we have completed both of our June matches I did some tallying and came up with the following data:

    matches: 11 (we canceled the Jan 27th one--rain)
    total stages shot:  58
    total shooters:  333

  2. while I'm sure you want it small you will need something heavy enough not to move when you operate the press--both ways:

    pull down to resize, possibly work the powder measure, seat bullet, and then crimp (progress or single stage: these operations are needed in both machine choices)  you can always prime and use a separate powder measure off the press, too

     

    if you prime on the machine then you will push the handle into the press a bit for this operation--that can cause rocking back.

     

    if you can secure it to a wall then 'Bob's your uncle,'  been watching too many UK, Aus/NZ shows

    ▲while you can secure it to a wall stud you can always figure out a clamping method so you don't ding the wall.  Open closet door, 2x4 on the inside, similar on your bench, clamp together

  3. as to the 44 Mag/45 Colt dilemma:  I color code the head of all my cartridges:  black/blue for pistol and red for rifle.  This keeps the right cartridges in the right firearms with a quick glance

     

    go to a match or two or ten.  Cowfolk will be more than happy to let you try their guns--we're special that way.
