  1. Anyone Turn On Heat Yet?

    Fired it up this afternoon Wife was cold I lost a decent amount of weight and now I'm cold from lack of a good insulating layer. Plus the back is reminding me of my youthful stupidity.
  2. Called out for not wearing a mask

    That's what Bush Jr wanted to do but the entire politicsl body went into spasms at the thought of the common man getting to keep his money. Please don't take my assertion of what is to be supportive - I despise the ponzi scheme but there is little I can do to influence it's demise.
  3. Called out for not wearing a mask

    I understand your position But I don't hold the incorrect position that your taxes are held as an annuity. Social Security is an entitlement. It has work requirements but that doesn't take it out of the entitlement spectrum.
  4. Dinesh D'Souza says recent riots and political unrest could lead to 'rise of citizen militias around the country'

    Read the chain - my assertion was that natural born are not immigrants. The prior poster had pushed the "we're all immigrants" fallacy. One can be an immigrant and be a citizen - my wife is both. I have zero issues with immigrants that come here legally.
  5. Called out for not wearing a mask

    Nope - you pay a tax not a contribution. You can candy coat it all you want but SS is an entitlement program.
  6. Review of the lyman trim xpress case trimmer

    Making a jig to do straight wall wouldn't be too hard You would need a bushing with the correct ID and a case holder like a half cylinder with a slot feature to locate the rim.
  7. If I shot twice as good as I do I still wouldn't be half as good as he is

    So does his daughter - have you seen her load an AR mag? A machine is slower.
  8. Funny Picture and Video of the Day MEGATHREAD!!!

    Measure both diagonals and adjust to equal - square roots involved. Unless you meant to square off to the house, then it helps (or cheat and just use 3,4,5)
  9. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    A 1/4-20 plug tap and a 3/8 drive socket that just fits over the case works in a pinch (also need a 1/4-20 bolt and couple of washers)
  10. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    I did the same with zero JHP - Silhouette calls for a short COAL that results in an almost compressed load max. I seated to max length for my magazines and had no issues at all - max charge for silhouette was quite stout with the longer length. Need to sit down and load up the rest of the 1k...
  11. The Stinky Thread

    A couple of rides ago I flatted out - leaned over to pull the wheel and my helmet let out a stream of rank rancid sweat so foul I had to check the gag reflex. Best I could think of was dunking it in a bucket of soapy water - that restored a base level of non-rank to it. The I did a century -...
  12. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    As far as cleaning - if you are just starting out and cash strapped you don't really need to buy any cleaning tools. Get a universal decappind die - it's cheap and very useful. I used an old plastic wide mouth food container for a while - hot water, dish soap and a pinch of lemishine. Shake well...
  13. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    This - it helps keep the urge to think a round isn't all that bad.

    22 rpm is 0.367 Hz or about 1/60 of the lowest tone we can hear (you feel below about 20Hz)
  15. 2020 Cast Bullet Signup Thread

    Pinched a nerve in my neck a week ago then had to support testing on a boat (submarine) - 8-10 hrs of steel deck plates and cold air on my neck really screwed it up worse. Today was the first day with relatively tolerable pain so I'm way behind on building PID controllers. I'm hoping to get two...
