Calls Shots

Calls Shots (8/11)

  1. From one thing, know ten thousand things. Myomoto Musashi - The Book of 5 Rings
  2. Jay and the Americans - Come a Little Bit Closer (I knew the song right away but for some reason I was thinking it was a Marty Robbins song) Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time I feel alive and the world it's turning inside out Yeah! I'm floating around in ecstasy
  3. Your dies and your brass are emphatically nodding their agreement.
  4. You should try driving all day FOR work. 10 hrs a day 6 days a week putting up with the utter morons that are the average American today.
  5. I think your best bet is to just get a new barrel. Odds are pretty good that if you start grinding and or cutting you're going to end up needing a new barrel anyway. And this way you would still have the old comped barrel in good working order.
  6. Those are faster burning powders. While they will work, I usually reserve the fast powders for cast bullets. AA5 or AA7 are better choices. As for VV, I use N340 quite a bit and it does very will with jacketed and heavy .45s. I also find the recoil, while still fairly stiff, is not as sharp as faster powders.
  7. Only met him once, at the 2nd Chance shoot, but I had spoken to him on the phone a few times. Damned if he didn't remember. He was a great man and a great guy. The world is poorer for his loss.
  8. Watching this, yet again, because I really love this movie. (despite Tom Cruise) The realistic depiction of the Samurai way and the underlying, and unspoken sub-plots, still fascinate me. When Japan lost the Samurai, they lost a part of the honor that we never really knew and is far further lost to us today. It may well be one of Cruise's best roles, but less because of him and more because of the role itself and the movie as a whole. It has been an inspiration to me since the first time I saw it.
  9. God Bless America sung by retired Navy Petty Officer Genero Wilson during the opening ceremonies at the Indy 500. And our National Anthem sung by Jimmie Allen.
  10. Just curious... What did the anvil look like in the failed primers? Was it pushed in flush with the cup? Or did it stick up a bit from the cup? I had an issue many years ago very similar with Remington primers. Turned out they were a thousandths shorter (back to front) than the CCIs I had used before and the anvil was not seating in the cup all the way. A minor adjustment to my primer tool to press them a hair deeper cured the problem.
  11. Never argue with someone smarter than you. Or dumber than you.
  12. I have some .45ACP 123 gr lead HP bullets from Straight Shooters but cannot find any load data on anything even remotely this light. They do not have load data on their site. I have +p cases, CCI 300 primers and a choice of AA#5, AA#7 or Vihta vouri N340 powders on hand. Anyone have any experience loading these or anything similar? Any suggestions on loads based on 155 gr LSWC? Any help would be appreciated.
  13. Handloading in a limited space environment. Sucks but it's what I got.
