  1. As a shooter, I have asked "what did I miss?" many times when I thought I shot the stage clean. The responses are sometimes funny enough to cause consternation on the part of the TO, but the spotters have the last say on misses, as per the rules. It's not confrontational or intimidating to ask what you missed, if it's done cordially. As a TO, I have also asked "what did he/she miss?" Many times I hear 20 shots but only 18 clangs, so when spotters say "clean" I call it clean & say "merry Christmas" to the shooter. If 2 spotters call a miss but the 3rd says clean, then I ask for specifics but if they are sure about it, then that is the call that has to be made. As a shooter, I have been on the receiving end of both over the years so it does balance out. As a spotter, I can almost always say "3rd pistol" or "6th rifle" & usually high/low/left/right when asked "what did I miss?" I think it's my duty to be observant enough to be able to say exactly what was missed. Holler
  2. We have been loading Clays with a MEC #26 bushing (~14.5 gns) & 3/4 oz shot using the pink Claybusters 3/4 oz wad - very nice to shoot. You can use the silver 7/8 wad but you will need to put a baby lima bean on top so the crimp will stay tight. This load is more gentle than the AA featherweight. YMMV. Holler
  3. I ordered from Brownell's on June 18, 1 item, it shipped on June 22 via UPS Mail Innovations. UPS transferred it to the USPS in Jacksonville FL on June 25. It has not moved since then. Here I thought the USPS terminal in Pensacola was the problem. 2 other packages ordered that day from another vendor, shipped from Ohio to me via UPS. One was delivered on the 22nd, the other on the 23rd - they never left UPS custody. Holler
  4. My grandfather used to say "I wish the man that invented plastic had it stuck up his...well, you know where." Plastic breaks. I have broken 3 of the impact pullers over the years. Last time I broke one I ordered 2 replacements, so I have a replacement when either one of them breaks. I have a collet puller & have tried Kajun's method - neither one works as well for me as the hammer knocker. I am just resigned to them. Holler
  5. This is what I do too. Wheel cylinder hone tool from Pep Boys, costs about $12. Remove the extractor completely, then use the hone with lots of oil for a minute or so, working it in & out of the chamber. I took a 1/2" dowel & made a lengthwise cut so I can put a piece of scotchbrite in the cut, then spin that with a drill. It does a good job of polishing. The problem may not be with the chamber finish. My shotgun got a sticky chamber & I couldn't figure out why - I polished the chambers again, back-relieved the extractor, all the tricks I know, but one chamber still stuck almost every time. Finally figured out that the extractor was turning when the shotgun was all the way open & was dragging on the hull. Took care of that & now the hulls fly out like they are supposed to. Holler
  6. I haven't used the Dillon feeder, but I have had 2 different versions of the hand-held tube fillers. One of them I gave away & the other is gathering dust on a shelf in my shop because they were both more trouble than they were worth. It's a lot less trouble to fill them with the poke-&-peck method using the pickup tubes. We have (3) small primer pickup tubes & (6 or 7) large pickup tubes. When Kay Sadeeya is ready to load ammo, depending on which primers she needs, I fill all the tubes & have them ready for her. When she empties one, I fill it back up for her then go back to casting bullets, cleaning guns, loading shotgun ammo or watching TV, whichever is more important at the time. Generally 300 to 400 primers will get her through an afternoon's loading. Holler
  7. It's OK by me. FWIW our match today went just fine using those guidelines.
  8. Panhandle Cattle Company in Chipley, FL is going to resume our regular match schedule this weekend. We cancelled both April matches to comply with the FL governor's recommendations. This is the first part of the match notice sent to our mailing list yesterday: Following today's announcement by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, we at Panhandle Cattle Company feel that we can safely resume our monthly matches, with the following provisions: If you are sick or don't feel well, stay home! Better safe than sorry. The Governor has said to avoid gatherings of 10 or more, if you can't properly social distance. We have plenty of room to spread out so social distancing can be maintained. Elbow bumps please - save handshakes & hugs for later. We will have small posses, no more than 10 shooters per posse. We will set up an extra loading table on each bay & ask that no more than 3 people at a time use the loading tables. If you want to wear a mask, please do so. Cowboy bandanas are encouraged!
  9. I use revolvers in 45 Colt & rifle in 44-40 & have for about 6 years or so. I have enough cartridge blocks to cover up to 8 stages & load up enough before a match to cover the stages to shoot that day. The only ammo that goes with me to the loading table is in those blocks, so if I don't screw up filling them, I shouldn't screw up loading the guns...at least that's how it's supposed to work. Holler
  10. I never had much interest in the black guns, then a couple of years ago Palmetto State Armory had a big Christmas sale. I ordered a lower build kit & a 5.56 upper for way less than I would have spent on a finished gun (as I recall, it was less than $300 shipped) & had a blast building the lower! Since then I have built 2 more, 1 is a pistol in 300 AAC & the other is an A2-style with fixed stock, round forend & carrying handle in 7.62x39. All 3 shoot great but don't get shot very often. I also have an upper in 350 Legend that needs a lower so there is a project in waiting. There is also an AR-10 in 308 in my future plans. For what it's worth, I think one of them (probably the 300 AAC) would end up being my SHTF gun, should the S ever HTF. Holler
  11. Interested in selling me the .357 mag brass?

  14. Kay Sadeeya & I went to EoT for the first time last year, best trip of our lives! We enjoyed every minute. Can't wait to go back in 2018. Holler
  15. Abe E.S. Corpus gets full credit. I had bought a Taurus Judge revolver & mentioned to him that it would be nice to have a rifle in 45 Colt to match up with it. He said "ever thought about a lever action rifle?" & it was downhill from there. Holler
