    Especially without sights!




    The top strap has a large groove in it that functions as a sight.

    I can't bend over like Garrison Joe...if it isn't the corset in the way...it's the belly!!!:rolleyes:

    They are all pretty much the same. Just buy the cheap foldable one. Run duct tape around the elbow if it wear out!

    The last foldable one I had I used JB weld on to lock it into position.

    But you still need a scale..   Alos a lot of us have Lee dippers that do not have newer powders on them      GW


    Wouldn't reload without one.

    I do have one small harbor freight one . But I'm using  a single stage . And figure a vol. Measure  would be easier  and check on the scale every 10th round.


    I use one of these. Better accuracy than any electronic powder scale and costs a lot less. 


    Smart Weigh Premium High Precision Digital Milligram Scale with Case, Tweezers, Calibration Weights and Three Weighing Pans, 50 x 0.001grams Accuracy is better than plus or minus 0.05 grains.


    The weighing pans are too small to be practical for powder so I just use the pan from my balance beam scale.


    One thing I learned early on is that these are sensitive to air currents and the air blowing into a room from a heat or AC vent can effect measurements. I have a window AC in my reloading shop and have to turn it off when using this scale.

    I also make sure it is sitting level by putting a small bullseye level on the pan before each use.

  5. Yep and if you look at he chart you can usually find a combination of dippers to get you the load you want. With a little practice you can consistently dip exceptionally accurate charges with Lee dippers.


    As an alternative you can make custom dippers out of small cartridge cases. Solder a copper wire handle to the case and then trim the length till you get the desired charge. Or you can partially fill the case with JB weld and then fine tune the case volume with a drill bit or dremil tool to achieve the desired weight.

  6. I have been using one of these for years.

    ArcMate EZ Reacher STANDARD Outdoor, Pro Reacher Grabber Pick Up Tool with Pistol Grip, Suction Cup Reacher, Indoor Commercial and Outdoor Use, 4.5" Wide Jaw, 8lb. Capacity, Black, 40" length.


    The longer length allows you to reach out past the firing line and around props. Avoid the ones that fold, they break in no time


    When the suction cups start to break replace them with these silicon ones.

    I'm pulling this from Pat's "Meme" thread:



    What the heck is it with the tongue out and weird hand positions that makes it so popular is selfies?  It's ugly, awkward, unattractive, and just plain stupid looking.


    I don't get it either.

  8. If the person is not careful they'll end up paying sales taxes twice.  Had Missouri try to do that to me on a trailer I bought in Nevada. Bought it just before being transferred. Dealer charged me Nevada sales tax. When I went to register it in my home state the County clerk tried to charge me sales tax on the purchase price. Claimed that I had not owned it long enough.


    I went through the roof and after a long and heated discussion I went before the county judge and he ruled that I couldn't be taxed twice on the same purchase.
