    I think Al should write a Erskine Caldwell style novel on the order of "Tobacco Road" or "God's Little Acre".

    Makes me wonder, would the mash run faster if you threw in a hundred CCI BR-4's?

    I think that perhaps some of his writings in "Precision Shooting" might offer a clue. Myself, I have no indication that he was. I met him a time or two at turkey shoots at the Weathersfield (Vermont)...

    I like Remington 700 actions a lot, although for some reason all mine have been short actions. I like the model 7 as well. It's probably more of a style thing than a function thing.

    The .308 is the most numerous chambering in my collection. I like it for many reasons. I have shot more deer with it than anything else, with the .30-06 probably being second.

    So, can you use the collet and then the body die? If you use the collet first, it will eject the spent primer, which may be a bit proud of the case, otherwise affecting the shoulder bump. Or, do you...

    Leave it to Al to think outside the box.

    The main prickly thing we have up here in New England is a blackberry thicket. They are generally easy enough to avoid but in some cut over areas they take over.

    I'm not a fan of running shots, and I've certainly spent a large amount of time in blinds and tree stands. However, it's a great thrill just to be creeping along and spot deer before they spot me. If...

    Body Die with Lee Collet

    OK, the second part of my question got lost in the shuffle in the "Mandrel vs. Bushing" thread.

    I have been planning on some of my (less precise) rifles to use body dies in conjunction with Lee...

    "Stalking Rifles"

    So, should I be investing in inside case neck turning tools as well as outside? And if I do, how to keep the insides of the necks concentric with the outsides?

    I do the edges of deer horn plaques with a router bit in a drill press. Not the smoothest cut, but easier than doing the whole thing with a rat-tail rasp. It cleans up pretty quick though.

    No, I have also seen several of these Model 70 XTR's and have been impressed. If I found one in a caliber I don't have (doubtful) I would likely buy it. I think I'll go look on Gunbroker now.

    I upgraded two Windows 7 PCs to Windows 10 a couple of years ago and found it to be quite easy. It was free too! I liked XP but learned to love Windows 7. Now I like Windows 10 just fine.
