The only draw back to the newer RST & Poly SpredR shells is the cost.
Come on folks, that's just not the case anymore. Check Cabelas prices on decent
hunting rounds (not the low grade Herters ...

The wonderful post on Setters fall asleep.

It is understandable that the rabbit might seek proximity to Chester for protection from the many predators here which include bobcats and cougars. But w ...

I have gotten a bit fatigued of the American style IPA's flooding out of all our local breweries.

Once fired Herters hulls make EXCELLENT roll crimps if you use the Precision tool and a drill press, and you can fit 2 3/4" loads into hulls trimmed down to 2 1/2" and then roll crimped. Un ...

It may be time to retire this batch of Cheddite hulls. They've had about 6 or 7 reloads...maybe too many...the interior surface of the hulls are very crusty and crenelated. This one did break the ta ...

Sizemaster has a collet resizer and 600 has a swedging ring-type resizer.

Can the 600 be modified to accept the collet resizer?

I sent my 28ga bobwhite with heavy triggers to Dehaan Shotguns.

Yes, it would be most appreciated.

BTW, has the bismuth pellet shattering issue been resolved? Seem like we don't hear much about it anymore.

2 1/2" non-toxic loads are a conundrum. There is a dearth of data for them, yet there is a growing need for loads of this type. You could develop some loads yourself and send them to Tom Armbru ...
