  1. My daughter brought my favorite cake. Yellow cake with Fudge icing. She has never liked fudge icing. That made it even more special. 😁😁😁 HAPPY FATHERS DAY Steve
  2. I like my EGW 7 Hole Case gauge. It is not cheap but if my reload drops into it and there is less than 4TH's of an inch( thumb nail thick) of the base of the case sticking up I am good to go in my DPMS LR-308 rifle. That is once fired military brass. I also use a Lee Bench Prime tool for priming and like it a lot better than any of the hand prime tools I have. i use a Lee universal depriming die on all my rifle brass . 308 30\06 5.56 and most of my pistol brass. I like to remove the primer before I clean the cases so the pocket gets cleaned. been reloading over 50 years and have not learned all of it yet. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ Steve
  3. Aw Matt. Tell us what you really think! 😈 😈 😈 Steve P.S. WE can only dream of one of our people in Washington DC thinking like that.
  4. I annealed all of my 45/90 and 45/120 cases and never had any trouble seating the bullet (lead grease grove). The only time I had trouble was trying to make 40/65 cases from 45/70. After 5 or 6 tries I could not get a good case but I did not try to anneal them before I tried to size them in the 40/65 die. I have learned that I don't get the same results when I do things that other people do. πŸ˜•πŸ˜•πŸ˜• Steve
  5. Might want to anneal the brass before you try to ram that expander up there. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„ Steve
  6. Over 47 years ago. I would mix 130 AV gas with Sunco premium half and half. Made the plugs last longer in my modified 427 Chev big block Vet. At that time it was a monster. Now days it wouldn't keep up. Old days were a lot more fun than now days. πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” Steve
  7. what's the off road specialty fuel? Does it have a Hemi??? πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š
  8. Black Beauty 😊😊😊
  9. Those hand guards seem to be a very tight fit. Do you have a handguard installation tool? I had a lot of trouble trying to change the hand guard on my AR-15. It was easy after I got the handguard tool. My hands just were not strong enough to get the Delta ring down far enough to get the old handguard off and the new one on. πŸ₯΅πŸ₯΅πŸ₯΅ Steve
  10. Hornady Custom Die set uses different seating seating stems for each bullet. I now have 100 each eld 187 gr. Match and X. I also now have both seating stems. They fit slightly different on the bullets. I will have to keep them separated in my reloading storage bens. I don't have a source for powder on line. I buy local to keep from paying HSAmat charges. I just bought the Hornady 11 edition reloading book. I tried to get it on my Kindle Reader or my I Phone 6 but both versions were not available for purchase at this time. $20 per year with updates or $50 for the book. O Well. Nobody ever said these things were inexpensive. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„ Steve
  11. I crawled through one of those that was on static display at Greater Southwest Air field in Grand Prairie, TX back when I was trying to stay in school ( fall of 1966). We spent about an hour in the plane. It was messed up inside. A lot of stuff was broken or ripped out. It was very impressive to stand up in the wing. We went in late at night. Climbed up the main gear into the wing. When we went to the rear of the plane we had to walk softly to keep the nose from moving up and down enough to been seen from outside of the plane. I don't even know where that area is now. So many things gone forever. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Steve
  12. Thank you. The ELD-X bullet is very hard to find. That was what I was trying to get when I got the ELD-M. I will see if I can get some Accurate 2495 and some of the ELD-X in 178 gr. I have a Remington 700 CDL Tactical heavy 20 inch Barrel Rifle that will shoot small one hole groups with 150 gr. Hornady bulk 150 gr. FMJ and CFE-223 powder at 100 yards. Don't know the speed of the bullet out of that rifle. I am going to try the EDL-M in my factory original DPMS LR-308 18 inch heavy fluted barrel rifle.
  13. Does anyone have a link to load data for the 178gr ELD-m with Varget and CCI BR-2 primers. I went to Hogden web site and they only listed 4064 power for the 178 ELD-M. If I have to buy another new book I will if it has this data. I really would like to see several different loads. I know that I need to reduce the starting load because I am using LC once fired brass to build this load. Thanks for any help. Steve
  14. Need to pay more attention when I read a post that I reply to.
