    Shut in

    I shoot rimfire 2 times a week and club factory centerfire 2 or 3 time a year.
    I'm getting brass ready for centerfire, range is deserted so no exposure.
    everything else is shut down. Thankful that I live in a rural area.

    Be Safe

    Gene, I'm onto something totally and completely radically different...... basically parting the 'body' off factory dies at the body/shoulder junction and making each die into two pieces, a neck/shoulder portion and a body portion. Once the two parts are separated it's easy to make modifications.

    So far I've parted off maybe 10-12 dies of different brands, mainly Redding 'S' dies but also Forster, Hornady and RCBS

    They are VERY hard on carbide parting tools.

    RCBS are by far the hardest/deepest and Redding are by far the easiest of the ones I've done so far.

    Putting them back together is the 'neeky part, but once they're working they're basically a poor-man's Neil Jones die. Except for the Reddings..... then you get a "Neil Jones die that furthermore takes sizing buttons!!!" AND.... interchangeable bodies for experimenting with tapers....

    I started this mess just re-cutting factory dies, with about 50/50 success

    And then I went back and parted some of the screwed up ones and made them into "the best???" dies I've ever used??? (VERY EARLY REPORT!!)

    I have a collection of "heads" and a collection of "bodies" and I can MisterPotatohead them together all sorts of ways. I did do two more today BUT THEN....

    Today went all sideward on me cuz the kids came over and burned up 'YUGE amounts of precious metals and volatiles in honor of my friend "Neal the Jailor".... Deputy Karlsen was a childhood friend, my age, nearing retirement. He died in a motorcycle wreck last Sunday afternoon. Neal was A Shooter, a lonely conservative in the Clark County cesspool and a wonderful human. Our county has "banned funerals", and this warn't no funeral!!!....but, All his kids were here, friends from 5 states and the air in my yard was cordite blue for over 6hrs.....

    And I managed to rap a few hot ones thru Neal's Schofield..... hammered the dueling tree in his honor.


    R.I.P Deputy Neal

    You are loved

    Sorry about that.... that went a liddle sideways too....

    I digress.

    WOW
    So,1 shooting range & 1 gun shop were closed by order of a POS Gov Cuomo?

    Why do you people put up with the never ending B.S. & taxed to death to fund their agenda?

    Because the votes of the stupid Lemmings in the big city get to overpower the votes of the more urban and rural voters.
