cfairman, none of the above. I think you are looking at my Winchester 1897. I use that for my cowboy stuff when the fingers will work. The double 12 above is just an old Spanish import.

Those Lyman Spartan presses are very well built. My dad bought 1 new in 1968, and give it to me in the early nineties when I loaded my first rounds. Then in early 2000's I discovered Dillon, my OCD took over and the rest as they say is history.

I hear you 3Gunnah, . . . my problem is the only Dillon I can afford still talks to Miss Kitty in the late afternoon on one of the "extra" free local TV stations.

I actually bought both of those off Ebay several years ago, . . . to replace the one I had from the 60's, . . . that inadvertently got sold. One belongs to a friend but he just keeps it here at my place, . . . so I use em both sometimes.

May God bless,
Dwight

I smiled at this as my dad used to be a ham operator whole time I lived at home and probably up till 5 years ago or so. I think he just putters with it now.

Wow you guys have nice setups, here is my modest setup hand made benches a bit over engineered, I just didnt what the benches moving around on me :) Sizing Lake City brass requires a nice firm setup.

I was casting today for my grandpa's little .32SW and 32-20 today, so all the case prep stuff and triimers was swaped out for the casting stuff, storage racks are all off in the corner. Powder and primer storage is in a different location.


Thanks from 3Gunnah and Stevie Ray

52 years as a ham this year. Even longer than my interest in the M14.

OMG....... Is that a 650 WITHOUT a case feeder? I think there may be a law against that.

Hi 3Gunnah....

Funny my 650 will turn 20 years old this year, it was $400 bucks new back in 1993, and the case feeder I couldnt afford then. Frankly just never got around to it...

You see the small tubes of pcv above it, they hold roughly 25 rds of .308 and 30-40 rds of .38, 10mm or .44, I just feel up run em dry and then refill :) I'm always verifying powder charges or checking COAL so when I run dry, I get up to check the charge on the scale..then refill the tubes and do it again.

I guess I should go ahead and get one...

Thanks from 3Gunnah

A few limited shots of a room in turmoil:







I don't know why they just don't understand. I seem to always get that "look" whenever she comes home and my gun vise is on the coffee table..at least I'm on the couch next to it!

Now THIS, this was a MESS:



It is slowly getting better, but it's cyclical, at least until the room is completely finished with the overhaul. Have been moving stuff in three counties, and haven't finalized ciphering what goes where, yet.


(A newer photo, but things are different now from when this was shot a few months ago.)

I sure miss the basement I had in Missouri, I'm back in my home State of Louisiana, a basement goes by a different name "swimming pool". So I built a small room (12x15) in the garage, I wanted a bigger space but this was about all I could spare. Nothing fancy like I had to build for the wife's soap making hobby...



This is a detached 16x30 building with a full bathroom. There are 2 types of men in this world... one that will admit his wife is the boss and the other one is........ a liar.


Thanks from TCAF, 3Gunnah, TheShooter and 1 others
