  1. You would have missed us anyway Doc, we were still in Albuquerque just after my son's bodybuilding competition. He took 1st in Masters Div. Funny story, after the competition we went to a Brazilian restaurant. For anyone who hasn't been to one of these places, they have a kick azz salad bar and then they have people coming around to your table with skewers of different kinds of meat, and slice off whatever you want. They just keep coming around until you cry uncle and can't eat anymore. So, Jesse was eating anything and everything they brought around, and drinking the schit out of water, he had been on a strict diet for at least a month and was dehydrated for muscle definition for the show. After we were finished eating he said he had to go to the bathroom and we sat and waited, and waited, and waited. My daughter-in-law finally got a text from him and said "He will be out as soon as he finishes puking!"
  2. We have really hard water here too. It's been in for about 8 years now and no problems. I do a vinegar flush on it pretty much every spring.
  3. Like 98 said, I usually pitch mine when the primer pockets get loose. I'll also occasionally pitch one with a split in the case.
  4. It's been working for me for over 40 years. Funny thing is, I've never had a case head separation in all that time! Go figure.
  5. Yup, we actually did it in the fields during the summer, usually on johnsongrass. The first time we did it we found out the hood can get hot really quick! A packing quilt or two solved that issue. It's a damn wonder I survived my high school years, in a small town you gotta find your own fun and sometimes it isn't exactly safe and sane!
  6. You should have went with a tankless water heater brother, never run out of hot water and it only heats on demand. At one point there was me, my wife, my two granddaughters, my son'r girlfriend, and her daughter living in our house. That's me and 5 women. That was when I put the tankless water heater in. I've never regretted it!
  7. We actually used to do something like this back in Kansas when I was in high school, only we tied a hood on behind the truck! Small town and at 3:00 AM there's no traffic other than some crazy azzed kids hood surfing behind a truck.
  8. Welcome from New Mexico!
  9. Welcome from New Mexico (almost in Texas)!
  10. Minimal shoulder setback will only work if the reloads are only being shot in one and only one rifle, you would most likely run into chambering issues if you tried to use them in another rifle. The only real benefit to setting your die for minimal shoulder setback is for accuracy, like long range accuracy! It's not a recommended practice for semiauto rifles either, it's mostly done for target style bolt action rifles where tight chambering isn't an issue. If you decide to go to this trouble, don't be surprised if you start having issues with you bolt not closing all the way on you AR type rifle! As you've already seen, minimizing shoulder setback really doesn't have an effect on case overall length stretching. That is because the stretching takes place at the base of the case, just in front of the case head. Nothing you can do about it, it's just how things are with shouldered cases. Once again, you are nitpicking at something that is not going to really get you any gains, but you do you.
  11. I think I partied with these guys back in the day!🍻😲
  12. Damn, that was funny as hell!!!!! (I'm laughin with ya brother, not at ya!)
  13. An old guy once told me "You don't own property in this country! In spite of what you think, you rent it from the government. If you don't think so, just quit paying your property taxes, they will come and evict your azz and take it from you!" After thinking about it for a little bit, I realized he was right!
  14. The fukkin app! I swear, you can't get any decent schit for free anymore!
  15. A buddy of mine recently won an AR-15 in a raffle. He was all excited and even posted it on Facebook. Then, he found out it was 300 BLK and couldn't get ammo to shoot it. I told him had plenty of brass and if he would get some 308 bullets I would be happy to load some up for him. He ended up trading it off for a 223 AR.
  16. Same here, I've loaded tens of thousands of pistol rounds and I've never trimmed a straight wall pistol case. At one point I was shooting and reloading around 10K 40 S&W a year and never had a problem. The cases will fatigue and split at the neck before they ever need to be trimmed.
  17. LEOs get the same discount, even after they retire!😁 I've done a lot of business with Brownells over the years, especially in all my 1911 endeavors, and they are still my go to place for parts.
  18. I've been exercising it pretty regularly! We have a lot of paved back roads around here and being a retired cop, I know where they are all at. I went out yesterday to blacktop road that sees no traffic, it goes to a deserted mining mill. I wanted to try out a 1/4 mile timing app I downloaded on my phone. Damn thing didn't work for schit!😝
  19. Regular unleaded pump gas, nothing fancy. That 5.7 Hemi is stock other than a bigger cam, I don't mess with the high compression stuff anymore. Gas is high enough as it is without having to go but the high octane stuff.
  20. I would love to get this car on a dyno and get it dialed in, I'm sure there quite a bit more horsepower to be unlocked!
  21. My daughter was over from Casa Grande and wanted me to do a burnout. Nothing like breaking in a brand new set of tires! I don't have a problem hammering on this thing!😝 Screen shot from the video; The aftermath;
  22. There's no plastic to strip out on those. The shops here would just take advantage of them, pay them crap and still charge the crap out of the car owner.
  23. I have two of these, one for .223 and one for .308. I HATE case trimming and these trimmers are worth every penny! Set it, forget it! https://www.ebay.com/itm/224653882178?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D234476%26meid%3D6f5bb2a0427147abb25cebbe45f41c45%26pid%3D101195%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D7%26sd%3D123104416703%26itm%3D224653882178%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv9PairwiseWebMskuAspectsV202110&_trksid=p2047675.c101195.m1851&amdata=cksum%3A2246538821786f5bb2a0427147abb25cebbe45f41c45|enc%3AAQAGAAACEAgKicbr%2BuIhXC%2Ft4tFfAVYaDIRnEt90ztpvPRfQaAt7t%2BWqlGj3Fyl7UHH%2FFqHKzFEuBfzDMEFoT%2FdACllayOOq2B7PtVBMbSuQwJtnKLwR%2BqCBLZDcsSI%2FVKO%2By0aHHl6Xh%2Bh928fbU8qgFpG1F5fPtSPZZypw82%2B%2BfiXIydqImCRLToEkO2QbhlmUPpjK1lnujMXMOAf3hHd9omOQGoEJUW%2F9PjGW1U0dTNBuX6zKqCiG1pQuEFoQpsb5TII4qzeJYwrKYQUicM5R4B%2BOMUK%2FfS7Sx7GfwA3KAVTZePvUIZL8VLjOQcDlrMbSm8%2F4nxf09nbU6EhrvUDO6i0V1tMnvHyo%2BdNiIYfVilUmhGcy4%2BCvvZ%2BkMywobYrAc4KNW2FwW1Uinlis7EdvAXyTDgR11BDZcSIQIvaHMM4x3Y3oqCHcSdAia8Y7RbIo6EGl8xmPL23eOxHbNDKhNxbJ6q4X9eQxHhF%2BfOWc0JMc7nt31yN%2FF2pQ1PeQ%2BghcGDoMcB4605LJNJ53PyH2xbgPbFLiuxBwcXcVXVlZwdS2MHPFvqa3ckKvPOnA8mIwZ%2Byu%2Fwl4ymC%2BefnxumDLTWYl6SYx%2FeUTrSfw4uy%2FTG6eMZL%2FeB1yqggKtC0nbTkm7pkiDU98POoKiwMoWu63LDMUYV07PLxjhholbBc6VKWgjnHi9ZcvpxfIaW9JALf5X1QlKA%3D%3D|ampid%3APL_CLK|clp%3A2047675&epid=1812001313
