Back in the early 80s, we did this, It worked great ! I think I still have a few rounds left.
A Buddy got some LC brass, and we loaded a bunch in his basement.

Try it ,you'll like it.

Maybe it's a northern thing. I live along the Texas Gulf Coast and I can find a lot of more interesting things to do with my time when its a balmy 70 degrees outside in February.

I have played with a lot of brass in my lifetiime, but it's never beaten the option of being outside in shorts and a t-shirt all day long. And I lved in Wyoming long enough when growing up to know that looking for good days to play wkith brass next to a warm fire is not my only option for the day.


For Liberals everywhere: You only get to vote for socialism once... After that, you own it for life.

Yo no creo en santos que orinan.

Women and cats will do as they please. Men and dogs should relax and just get used to the idea.

Going keyboard postal over something that you read on the internet is like seeing dog crap on the sidewalk and choosing to step in it rather than stepping around it.
