    BP corrosion in exp brass cases

    Corrosive events do not start till after the “Big Boom” event takes place.

    Kaboom went the snowblower

    Glad to hear it’s fixed. It seems folks with driveways that seem to rival a football field in length, have forgotten another option. An ATV/UTV with a plow attachment. You can use the vehicle year round as a gun cart, going to the mail box, yard work, etc. You get to sit while clearing the drive, and with a UTV, you might have an option for HEAT while doing this chore. Hey, I’ll admit I’m the first person to call myself lazy!!

    Christmas is almost upon us!!

    You might want to look up Yusta B. I know his situation is similar to yours, and is/was a black powder shooter.

    Soul, Kia Soul that is???? got one? had ONe?

    I like this topic since I'm thinking of a replacement somewhat soonish. My current ride is a 2011 Chevy HHR which has accumulated nearly 200,000 miles. It's never missed a beat and it's primary use is to take me to and from work, 50 miles away, 4-6 times a week. I know what I'm going to use it for, so I'm not too inclined to spend a lot on something I'm only going to pound miles on.

    Performance "chip" for diesel PU

    Check out Powerstroke.org. Its a forum based site with a lot of knowledge. Most run a tuner verses a chip which allows switching back and forth depending on your need at the time. A tuner will also allow monitoring of engine systems to allow you time when trouble starts.

    Firearm Question, Pensacola Air Museum on Navel Base

    I've always kept my firearms in the vehicle. Have never been asked and I won't lie to them if I was. It's just that I won't give them any addition information they don't need to know about.

    Quick change press mounting system. Anyone have one?

    Does being mounted on 2X4's, then C-Clamped to my workmate count?? Both my Lee Turret and Shotgun presses are mounted this way.

    That was always the joke when I had to run a engines on fighters after a lot of maintenance was done. "If it catches fire, remember!! Forms first, then fire extinguisher! If asked why forms were used, just answer that it was the closest thing available and you were just trying to beat the flames down!!"

    TX State Black Powder Shootout and Senior Games

    Same here. Just not too sure if I'm going to C&B or cartridge the pistols. I'm going to start loading cartridges this weekend and see how they do. Rifle choice will depend on the outcome. If I end up C&B, then the rifle will most likely be my 1860 Henry. Shotgun will be hammered. What are you thinking about using?

    What primers

    Let me re-phrase this. No we don't reload EVERY week, but when we do, we average 350-700 rounds a week. Boy, folks really are getting cabin fever!!

    What primers

    I have an old Lee Turret press as well, but we, Limey and I, still use a hand primer to seat primers. Slow, but you will know/feel if a primer isn't seating well long before you get the feedback through the handle. Limey and I share the loading process when we load 38's, which is what she shoots. She'll clean, size and deprime and place in plastic bags or shotgun boxes. I'll bell the mouth and place them in loading boxes. She then primes them and gives them back to me. I'll load powder and seat the bullet. She'll then crimp them. Slow, but we stay ahead of shooting match requirements and we get to do them as we can. Normally, we'll load anywhere between 350-700 rounds a week. If the weather is really nasty, we'll get a lot more done. Oh yea, we usually use Federals. Winchesters are our next go to primer, then whatever we can get our hands on. Another suggestion is to have several recipes with different powders too, just in case things go crazy and powder gets hard to come by again.

    Need help from pards in OH, IN, KY, TN, or ?

    Could always think about Northeast Texas. Specifically, Hopkins County / Sulphur Springs area. You are less than 1 1/2 hours from Texas Ten Horns(1st weekend of the month) in Leanard, Barlands Bar 3(3rd weekend) near Clarksville. Just shy of 2 hours is Texas Toublemakers(1st Saturday) near Brownsburo. A few others in the area with little more driving. Cost of living is relatively low. Mild-ish winters, but some what hot summers. Very few Tornadoes in the area too(helps to be just outside Tornado Alley).
