    Maybe, but if you check gunbroker, the cheapest 6” Diamondback.22 has a starting bid over $1500. I wouldn’t consider selling mine for that.

  2. 2ndtimer liked Blackrock's post in the thread Trimming/Prepping .223.

    Trims, I&O chamfer plus primer pocket ream or clean. Add the RCBS carbide cutter to the trimmer and it's real fast on trimming.

    For removing the crimp RCBS has a die that removed the crimp for around $40. Dillon has a better set up with thier 600 Swagger tool....

  5. 2ndtimer liked Random 8's post in the thread 223 the next loading?.

    Just noticed the part that you are loading for a bolt action 1:9. You should make up a dummy round with one of the 75s and a piece of...

    Interesting discussion. I agree with the TAC promoters, it should run very well with the Hornady 68 gr BTHP match bullets. I would...

    1:9 may not be fast enough to stabilize your 75g ELD and VLD bullets

    I second this! Accurate 2460 may do well with the 68's as well. I'd try TAC first, I've had great luck with it in .223 from 55-77gr...

    68gr match BTHP with either BL-C(2) or TAC - I would be real surprised if you can't find a load with those bullets that is better than...

  10. 2ndtimer replied to the thread Old primers.

    I don’t use the CCI-400’s for 5.56 pressure loads in AR’s, but for milder .223 plinking loads, they have been fine in my experience. I...

    I just got back from the range testing some old CCI primers a friend gave to me. (The large rifle primers are really old, 70’s maybe?)....

  12. 2ndtimer liked wiscoaster's post in the thread Why do people not like range officers.

    People carry firearms uncased at a couple of the ranges I use. It doesn't bother me, but I do pay attention. Out of courtesy to the...

    Probably best for everyone involved. That way you don't have fools sweeping you with their muzzles or handling their firearms while you...

  15. 2ndtimer liked Rubone's post in the thread Which handgun "PURCHASED NEW" was the best value for the money.

    I paid $150 for my used Diamondback 4" .22 in about 1992 and about 8 years ago I paid $400 for a Diamondback 4" .38. The original grips...
