Range brass, mixed. Mostly .223, 9mm plus more

I cleaned my reloading bench and I have a bunch of range brass that I'll never use. Mostly .233 and 9mm. I can look closer to see what else is in the boxes. If interested, let me know. Just pay to ship in bulk rate Pyority box and a little something extra to help me buy some bullets or new die set. ...

My bench is always growing

My bench never seems to stop growing. I started out building the NRMA reloading bench. Photos in a previous post. I then expanded the bench using the same plan along the left wall in the room. The bench later wrapped to the other wall. It's getting a little out of hand :D . http://i54.photobucket.co...

Try Precision Delta

Try Precision Delta - I've ordered from them many times. Mostly for their 9mm FMJ bullets. I cast my own lead bullets. Good people. http://precisiondelta.com/product.php Bullets must be ordered in multiples of 2,000 (calibers and bullet types can be mixed and matched by the 1,000). If your bullet or...

The batteries don't last that long, especially if you forget to turn the light off like I do. I originally thought the small flashlights with the flexible end were the perfect solution. Batteries don't last long. It's cheaper to get a new flashlight at Harbour Freight than buying 4 new batteries. I...

I'm a Canadian. No such thing as concealed carry for us That's a shame. Wisconsin becomes the 49th state to permit concealed carry. Congratulations!

All is good

It's been awhile since I had time to stop by to catch up on posts. My life has become so busy with my job. I will always make time to get out to the range at least once a week dispite my busy schedule. I went muzzleload hunting this past weekend with a good friend. He shot a 4 point buck. Had a grea...

I'll buy some factory loads that have boxer primers and force myself to use them so I have some more brass.

That's exactly what I did. I bought 100 rounds of boxer primed PRIV loaded 7.62x54R ammo for my Mosin Nagants, so that will last for awhile.

I have a stool, but I'm more comfortable standing. Besides, I move around a lot. Can't stay still. That's me running around below. http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g111/wateroperator/press1.gif http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g111/wateroperator/site1051.gif Citywaterman

Link to plans - http://www.nrmcburney.net/mac/GunVise.htm

Thank you. Here's the link to the plans. http://www.nrmcburney.net/mac/GunVise.htm . I made a few modifications of my own. I cut out two (double thickness) and glued parts together of all the handle parts. You will need to experiment with the handle placement. I drilled three holes so that I can rep...

Mike's homemade gun vise

I just finished a small weekend project. I picked up the idea from another fourm (Reloaders hub). If anyone would like the plans, let men know. It's easy to build. http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g111/wateroperator/IMG_2662.jpg http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g111/wateroperator/IMG_2656.jpg http...

The Shooting Chrony has to be THE least user friendly device ever made. I'm narrowing down my choices for a chronograph. I've heard and read a lot of good things about the Shooting Chrony. Did you return the printer for warantee repairs? How do you like the Shooting Chrony overall? You said it's th...

Wow, I'm in the market for a Chronograph. What a deal. I missed out on this one. I've been reading and researching chronographs. I'm not sure if the printer is all that necessary for my needs. I like the digital display. I see them at the range pretty often. Some shooters take forever to get them se...

I picked up a Lyman 10lb electric pot to melt the stick-on lead weights. I pour the cleaned up lead into ingots and that helps me keep my Lee bottom pour pots clean. The sticky back WW sure do smoke and make a mess. That's OK, their free for now. I've also noticed more Zinc clip on wheels weights ar...

Smitty62, Citywaterman that looks almost identical to one I had last weekend. The explosion shield really does sound like a good idea. And yes the primer trough really does hold up well. Incidentally I was using CCI primers so it could have been worse. I thought it was Federal primers that Lee cauti...
