  1. It is easy to tell if the material is nylon or polyester.  Take a small flame and if it is nylon it will be a strong acrid odor when melting/burning. If it is polyester it will have a sweet smell. Solvents are different for the 2 materials if you try the solvent route.  I agree to try a worm.


  2. Are you talking about benches for benchrest shooting??  If so they are almost all 32" high.  Some rare ones are 33".  If you are talking about Cowboy tables most are about the same height.


  3. I have the same one as John Boy.  Works well. I keep it in my pistol reloading room.  I have an old Mettler PM 100 lab scale in my rifle reloading room. Current price about 1K. If it ever dies I will buy another newer one or the Sartorius equivalent.


  4. IF you have a "Star" type target that is defective in that it doesn't balance properly every time it is easy to make a mark on the back of each arm (1-5) and mark the plates the same at the base where they don't get hit and that way the target is the same for every shooter. There are a lot of people making star type targets and I suppose the QC on some is not quite as good as it needs to be.

  5. I  still have a flip phone (have to drive 50+ miles to get a signal)and we fill out all forms on a typewriter. Only have satellite internet because I have to as a TG.  Don't do anything on it except email and SASS stuff and an occasional purchase from Brownells.

  6. If your target is properly lubricated it will find the same position on its own for every shooter. I have 2 of them and they always come to the sase stating position on their own.

  7. As long as it is staged in a legal manner there is nothing in the rule book that says you can't.  It might be a bit slow figuring what to do with the hat when you get ready to use the rifle.


  8. It costs a bit more but unless you are loading many thousands of rounds it won't make much difference.  VV 320 is wonderful in light loads for 38Special.

  9. Born and mostly raised WV.  Rappeled and climbed back up the rope off the New River Gorge bridge before they opened it (still under construction at the time, VERY illegal) did it legally later before they allowed base jumping. Used to train river guides on how to recover breached rafts, canoes, etc. for the commercial guide companies on the New and Gauley. Did both in rafts at flood stage many times. (before Spring runoff lowered enough to take paying customers) trained the guides.  Got my BS at WVU.

  10. I have 3 of the Dillons. Have the typical problems with them. The adjustable speed control helps. I have more problems with Federal small pistol primers than any others. I have not seen one but have heard that the Double Alpha works about as well as the Dillon. I don't know if the Mark 7 can be used with primer tubes or only on their awesome(expensive) presses. 


  11. I had a Bench Source annealer I used for years. Finally upgraded to an AMP from New Zealand. Amazing machine. They make a pilot to anneal 45Colt brass. It does make a difference in cleanliness. As for 38 SpeciaL: Don't waste your time. I anneal center fire precision rifle brass every loading with it. The machine makes it almost fun to anneal.
