  1. The issue with the lee load all is that it is that you are limited to only a few shot charge weights with the lightest being 1 oz. With the MEC you have a much greater choice of shot charges. The ones most beneficial for low recoil charges are the 3/4 oz and 7/8 oz.
  2. Now your going to have to decide which flavor of shooters you are going to offend. The WB shooters because the targets are way too big and close. The SASS shooters because the targets are too small and far away.
  3. The old US standards have been proven to be orders of magnitude way too high. This is a long read but rather interesting. The Most Important Scientist You’ve Never Heard Of For 60 years, American drivers unknowingly poisoned themselves by pumping leaded gasoline into their tanks. Here is the lifelong saga of Clair Patterson—a scientist who helped build the atomic bomb and discovered the true age of the Earth—and how he took on a billion-dollar industry to save humanity from itself.
  4. If your interested I have just the roll crimper I'll sell to you. I'll send you a PM tonight.
  5. One secret to Beef Stroganoff is to properly prepare and cook the beef. You have to slice across the grain. Just sear the outtside because if you over cook it it will be tough.
  6. Apparently the highest gasoline price in the nation is $6.75.9 a gallon at Schlafer’s Auto Body & Repair. It is the only gas station in Mendocino, CA. Not even Death Valley is that high.
  7. One day one of those racoons will be in a bad mood and the racoon whisperer will be no more. Guy I work with has a cabin by a lake. His kids started feeding the squirrels potato chips out of their hands eventually they could pet them and had named most of them. This went on for several years till one day they decided to feed them pecans because the chips were not exactly healthy. Turns out pecans are worse than crack when squirrels are involved. the squirrels started biting anything that the pecans had touched. His kids had to jump in the lake to escape and before the weekend was over they had to shoot several of the squirrels to keep them from attacking someone in their mad craze for more pecans. It took thousands of years for dogs and cats to be domesticated. No way a wild animal can truly be domesticated. Even if they act tame they have instinctive reactions for survival that cannot be eliminated.
  8. As a matter of fact Yes we have a couple of openings in my group. Seems that no one wants to live in the sticks. They all want to live and work in the DFW metro area.
  9. Rye, I only cast 2 or 3 days a year and my last bll test was 11. The one 3 years ago was 12. I do act a brass picker a lot though. I also reciently decided to wear rubber gloves while processing brass during wet tumbling. A fellow shooter and former SWAT officer told me to start taking a Centrum vitamin a day and my levels would come down significantly. he learned about it while on the job. Said his whole squad started taking a Centrum a day and their bll all dropped significantly. I started about 2 months ago after my last test. I take another test in a year and see what the results are.
  10. Bet they all go bang.
  11. Would you PM me his contact info. I shoot NCOWS and having a belt like that would be worth a LOT of style points.
  12. Great boss, good pay including OT pay, and low stress is what keeps me here. Right now I am on track to retire 3 to 4 years. Had Trump stayed in office, I probably could have retired in only 2 years. My group consists of about 20 people divided into to main areas. We are over a mile from the rest of the company so there is very little administrative BS to put up with. Besides my own cubical, I have two other shops each over 200 yards from the main building. When our building was remodeled and updated we successfully lobbied to have a full kitchen installed in our break room. It includes a full size stove, refrigerator, upright freezer, ice machine and dish washer. We operate our own snak bar and have a nice gas BBQ, Charcoal BBQ and a Charcoal smoker out back. We all get along and work well as a team. Group cookouts are a regular occurrence. about 3 times a year the boss springs for one of the local BBQ joints to deliver lunch. He also buys a nice selection of ice cream snacks once a month. The only real down side is working some rather unusual hours on occasion. Given all the above I figure I'd be hard pressed to find a "better" job
  13. I was only there for the morning half of the Cowboy yard sale. The nature of my job has prevented me from signing up to a match a year in advance. So I cannot sign up for matches like Winter Range (now Land Run), CaC, etc that sell out so far in advance. Because of some short notice changes, I worked a 13 hour shift that ended at 0500 Wednesday morning. At a little after nine Wednesday I had been up for 24 hours. So, after seeing the yard sale, checking out the vendors, Shaking hands with a lot of friends as well as some new ones, we headed for home, where I spent the rest of the afternoon asleep in my recliner. At about 1600 this afternoon I found out that I am needed at work all day Saturday. This means that I will not be able to be the Match Director for a local Cody Dixon match. Now what this about a food fight??????? Inquiring minds want to know.
  14. My 92 will feed 125 gr LTC loaded in 38 special cases with an OAL anywhere between 1.505 to 1.510 The are crimped about 1/2 way between the crimp groove and the lube groove. I did all the action mods from Nate Kiowa Jones' video.
