    Does Dillon or RCBS make loading dies for that?

    I still have an issue with my thumb joint locking up and popping 61 years later! I had to write similar sentences so many times in the fifth grade that my hand and fingers would get cramps which resulted in the thumb issue!:angry:

    So you still haven't learned your lesson?

  3. I have been to many,way more than i can count, funerals usually part of firing detail. I've never heard the words of taps used. My first detail I saw a 300lb + biker crying like a baby. My last was an 18 yo kid home from boot camp did too much drinking before trying to drive.

    Yep, that is true. Forgot about that. 

    I got fooled by a crafty realtor on what they called a “35 acre farm with a main house, 4 car garage with an apartment over it and two out buildings.” for $200k

    The pictures made it look wonderful. 
    My wife and I drove 50 miles to see it. 
    I am glad the realtor couldn’t make time to meet with us. I would have probably punched her in the face. I was pretty ticked off. 
    The house & buildings were decaying from years of abandonment. The driveway looked like an off-road trail. The acreage had 2 county roads running through it and a big driveway that went to an apartment building used to house wayward meth heads and filthy lower lifeforms. 

    I wish I had the pictures to post here but I deleted them all, including the ones from Zillow. What a dilapidated mess. 
    It might have been funny had I not driven 50 miles in crappy weather to see this hovel. 

    I did contact Zillow and I reported this listing as totally inaccurate. The listing was gone a couple days later. 

    I plan to use VA benefit so so.e conditions are mandatory before loan can be secured. The agent I have currently been talking with is familiar with that.

    Unless you have your heart set on the Ft Worth area, I would look SE of the Dallas area around Terrel. Lots of SASS clubs within a reasonable drive. 

    Kaufman county would be high on my list if I didn't work in Hurst and still few years ti retirement

  6. I just got into house search. I'm looking in area outside ft worth to the northwest.  Hopefully I can find couple acres with small house with minimum need of repairs. Looks as though be me and probably a dog. Seen a couple on realtor.com, zillow website hard to use. There are few listed looks like could work,but found fewer pics worse shape.

    Rode with a guy that had a Springer Softtail that was painted in pink flames. He bought it used and intended to repaint it. Turned out that it was quite the babe magnet. Dwane took a lot at ribbing over his “Barbie” bike but his was always the one with the babes around it. 

    Now I understand why @patriot rides a hello kitty

    You suppose that strap around his thigh is there as a seat belt? To make sure he don't fall off?


    Because that appears to be a sippy cup he's drinking out of, which would mean that kid is a whole lot younger than I thought he was when I first saw the picture.

    or strap holding the dog saddle bag

    I still use the terms "1/2 ton" and "3/4 ton." Both have much more capacity* than that today compared to decades ago.


    But your point still applies. The Ford F250 has more capability* than the F150, same for General Motors 2500 vs 1500. I don't recall the model designations for Dodge but the same applies. Heavier duty brakes, axles, and suspension completely change the towing experience.


    Every maker has a towing guide which outlines the true capacity of each model "as equipped." For instance, 4WD reduces capacity. The biggest engine usually does not have the highest capacity, but greatly improves the experience in hills when within the capacity it does have. Do not trust the truck salesperson any more than an RV salesperson.


    As to RV forums, I would like to know where everyone went after RV.net was taken over by Camping World. That was a great forum 20+ years ago but no longer seems to have the same experienced membership to help new folks get started.


    * I chose the words "capacity" and "capability" on purpose. They are different.

    Totally agree. I had a rv salesman try to tell me that my v6 1/2 ton Chevy would have no problem with 10000 lb. trailer. At that time i was looking for under 5000. now my Duramax has a lot more capability and capacity but still don't want to max out either. i intend to keep this truck while longer, not beat it like dead mule and trade for new payments
