    How does one open these types of attachments??

  2. Check with people in your local area, you can probably find some one to do it for you for the price of the components (and maybe some rolls, a dinner, jug of hooch, you get the picture). I'd suggest a box or two before you go whole hog with ten boxes.

  3. Lee dies work fine for my Iver Johnson Model 1900.

    By the way, have you learned any tricks with getting mice to fart in the empty cases and seating the bullet before the 'propellant' escapes?

    The mice are well trained and well rewarded - they drop the bullet after they unload but they don't have the strength to crimp the case. Currently cross breeding some with stronger sphincters - but they will be several years out until they are mature enough. :lol:


    Thanks for all the input, snagged an older Lee die set for only slightly more than just a seat/crimp die would have been.

  4. Interesting question. My category has some mighty good shooters in it and the only way I place near the top is when I'm at a

    local match and they're off at a bigger match somewhere.


    Did manage to come in ahead of one guy once who had a passel of gun trouble. Went up to him afterwards and told him I always

    wanted to beat him - but not that way. Same situation with another fellow who I aspired to best who has some health issues and has slowed down considerably.


    Several years ago I bought a buckle and had these words inscribed on it - "I bought this buckle".

    That said - I've gotten some certificates, but I'm more interested in how I placed in my category and overall than if I get an award or not.


    I will always remember my first "clean shoot".


    I don't know the answer - like you I keep coming back for a number of reasons - trying to better myself, trying to outdo the

    good shooters, watching them to see what they're doing that I'm not - but most of all getting and giving some BS, hearing the

    steel ring and being with a great bunch of people.


    So, I guess my input is that it is nice to be recognized, but in my head and heart I know how I got there and if it wasn't head to head, toe to toe, all things equal and no hiccups - I still didn't "win".

  5. General practice is separate boxes for rifle and pistol, only because I load the shinier brass for rifle in hopes it will make it easier for the brass pickers to find. Hasn't worked all that well so far, but it proves I'm thinking about them. Shoot splits in the pistols and mark them with a Sharpie stripe down the side for double precaution.

    If I'm playing with different primers or loads, will put them in a different box, color code the head and put a slip of paper in there so I know what's what.

    Works well except on windy days when the paper blows away and I forget what color is what.
