    PA10 Part 1

    As far as reloading for the 7.62/.308, it simply isn't necessary to use a small base sizing die, but if it makes you feel better, go ahead. I've used an RCBS standard sizing die for 5 different semi auto rifles, and all function just fine. Just make sure the resized brass fits into a case gauge properly. I've used lots of different brands of brass (still using some IMI 30-06 brass I bought in the 80s. Fantastic stuff!) and have never had a problem using 1x-fired military brass, even if it was fired from a machine gun. I'll continue using it. Just follow good reloading procedures and you'll be fine.

    More research needed

    Kelly Kicking Cancer had our 4th annual gala this past week, and it was a big success. We changed the venue to a reception center in town. Food was great, venue was great, energy and participation was great, and we had comedienne Marvin Lee was a hit! He had people rolling on the floor with his routines, and they were all clean, no PC. He's a genius. We raised over $17k that night alone. Many donations came in prior to the event, and still more are coming in. We'll probably get close to $30k from this event for brain cancer research when all is said and done. Marvin is a recurring character on "The Walking Dead", and he auctioned a few items from the set to help us out. We also had a Saints football signed by Drew Brees and Sean Payton which fetched a bunch of $$$. Check out our blog and research pages. www.kellykickingcancer.org

    Get ready for next generation...

    Let's just hope this clown's actions removed his fat-assed genes from the gene pool... permanently.

    In production...

    Yeah, a 30-06 would make a lot of sense. I already have everything needed to reload for it, and anything a .308 can do a 30-06 can do better. Would be cool for the Garand to have a great-great grandson.

    Get ready for next generation...

    Then just realize that OUR children will be the de facto leaders because the way we rear them will prepare them for the challenges to come. I think it's just as bad that newspapers, social media and other entities give such cute names for these idiot parents, almost making their irresponsible actions acceptable. They're wusies, rearing wussy kids.

    Lets see your AR-15

    Follow up on the AeroPrecision USA arctic camo build. This is a real shooter. I finally got out to the range to sight it in and function test it. About 100 rounds, flawless function beginning to end. The G2S trigger is a real wonder! It's great. Followed a good barrel break in (1 shot, clean; 3 shots, clean; 3 shots, clean; 5 shots, clean; 5 shots, clean; go shoot.) I was amazed at how dirty the barrel got after only one or two shots (mostly IMI 77 grain BTHP Razor core). After trying out several sets of the Magpul Pro sights, I can say I don't like them. They are extremely well made, not a problem with that, and they finally put a narrow front sight post on it (it was like sighting in on a 2x4 with the original front post). The front sight wings are way too thick, don't bend outward enough and give me problems with sight picture. YMMV. I much prefer the KAC USMC sights. Those are great. 50 yds sight in, stringing is my fault with the inconsistent sight picture. Next time I'll put a 9x3 scope on it just to test out the accuracy. My daughter will like this rifle. Tried offhand on 100 yd and 300 yd silhouettes. Silhouettes didn't have a chance that morning. Very easy to transition from one target to another. This rifle has absolutely no recoil, it's easy to shoot, it's fun to shoot.

    New fella from Montana

    Welcome from the LA swamps. I spent many years chasing oil rigs and seismic crews all over Montana. Loved the western part around the Crazy Mtns. and Big Timber. Best beef ribs EVER in Miles City at the (now burned down) "Crossroads" diner.

    Not A Bad Weekend

    Well, last one is out of the house. We brought our youngest to UCF last week. Gorgeous campus, but you can keep Florida. HOTTER THAN HELL, no breeze, and like living in an ant hill there are so many people everywhere. Daughter loves the school, great roomates, and only a few miles from Disney. Already involved in campus clubs. Wife has already planned a few trips to visit. I'll try to take in at least one football game this fall. UCF ranked 17th in preseason FWIW.

    I don't know why he apologized to me directly. Geez, some people are so thin skinned.

    NEW CONTEST - Eat the Canned Chicken...

    I think you all missed the obvious. The guy has a "woody" and he wants us all to look at it. No thanks.
