  1. Although I’m certain I’m not as physically fit as you seem to be I think we’ve enjoyed some similar hobbies. When I was young I was involved in karate and Kung fu, I’ve been shooting my whole life and love bicycling (road type). Have you considered photography? It’s another type of shooting. I discovered and explored things and places I never never would have otherwise. It can be physically demanding or not at all. Unfortunately, like most hobbies it can become a money pit.
  2. I just did this recently and I didn't like the results. My brass was dusty from old overused media. The bullets ended up looking and feeling dirty. A couple rounds did't feed well. Probably my thumb against the slide but the dirty feeling brass couldn't have helped. I feel it's better to just take the extra step and remove the lube.
  3. Mine is a little loose. I only have one old STI tube to try it on. I got the tube used so I don't know what's been done to it before I got it.
  4. I tried coloring my .38 sc brass once for identification. Ended up making a mess of it. Probably not much different then images in original post. I think this link relates http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?66487-Coloring-brass-cases I kept using the brass and eventually it returned back to normal.
  5. I’m not sure about non-chlorinated brake cleaner but chlorinated brake cleaner will remove paint from painted grips. I’d also be careful to keep it away from sights with painted dots. It’s probably not a bad idea to keep strong solvents away from the special coating on glass optics as well.
  6. Google or Bing search “Electrician Tool Bag”. Lots of magazine pockets!
  7. I had a squib years ago from a round I loaded and the round did have powder. As far as I know my powder check didn’t give any indication of problems either. How you might ask? Media with Nu Finish car polish got stuck in the bottom of the brass. I used to add Nu Finish car polish or Dillon Rapid Polish to my media. I was tumbling my brass in new media and remembered I hadn’t added the polish to my media so I opened my tumblr (Vibratory Case Cleaner) and put some in. Lesson learned: NEVER ADD POLISH AFTER BRASS IS IN MEDIA! If you’re going to use polish always put it in media and run tumbler u
  8. Does anybody know of better prices available for .38 supercomp brass than starline.com? Ghostholster has been out for some time. Midway.com and Grafs have higher prices. I know that Starline supports our sport and would be happy buying from them but I thought I’d check with you guys first.

    Ok. I'll Play.
  10. While changing the shellplate I managed to drop the index ball down the shellplate bolt hole. I called Dillon for help they told me to ether use a magnet or unbolt the machine and turn it upside down. I didn’t have a magnet so I called a buddy over so we could stand and stare at the dilemma together for a while. Finally my friend suggested shooting compressed air (small can used for cleaning computers & electronics) down the hole. The ball popped right out.
