  1. I'll second two of the above suggestions. Car wash/wax instead of Dawn leaves a thin film of wax on the brass and it seems to run smoother through the dies. Also, ditch the pins and use Strat-O-Sheen. Brass comes out every bit as clean and shiny without having to separate pins afterwards. Last extra note: Do you have hard water that leaves spots on your dishes after they're washed? If yes then by all means use the Lemi-Shine. If your water is already soft the Lemi-Shine isn't providing you any extra benefit.
  2. Need? When on Earth has NEED ever been a factor in this decision???
  3. I don't disagree but we're wandering too far from the OP. The stage instructions specifically said to make the rifle safe in the vertical rack. I agree with everyone who said the shooter chose the safer option of carrying to the next table but that wasn't the question.
  4. That's all well and good until you have downrange movement.
  5. I see what you're saying but don't see how that matters. One was carried downrange (In violation of the stage instructions) while the other wasn't. I don't see how the operability of the two makes any difference.
  6. It would be worth more to me while the other would be worth more to someone who likes the splinter forend. That's a smart aleck way of saying they're worth whatever someone will pay for them. As far as book value? I've never found book value to be of much value.
  7. By the letter of the law he violated the stage instructions. But in this case I wholeheartedly agree with Santa Fe River Stan. What he did was safe and offered no competitive advantage. Where this would become a problem is later in the match if a shooter carried their NON-malfunctioning rifle downranged and safed it there and was then assessed a P. They'd have an entirely valid argument that you allowed another shooter to do it. How would you justify giving one a P and not the other?
  8. Fast rifle shooters have been around a lot longer than straight triggers.
  9. First and foremost is that you do realize you're asking a Ford vs Chevy question, right? All the answers you're going to get will be 100% correct because it's nothing more than personal opinion. In my case I can't see having a progressive press that doesn't automatically advance the shell plate. Also, the big knock against the 650 was always the difficulty of caliber changes due to the priming system. That got fixed with the 750. For those reasons I like the 750 over the 550.
  10. Send me a check. (I don't have one of those to sell. Just want you to send me a check. )
  11. ^ This. It’s not like they’re good for anything else. Might as well try to get some use out of them.
