    Well, looks like the 7mm-08 went to the recycler. Sorry to disappoint. I have since found 7 more pieces (3 Winchester and 4 FC) but that may not be enough to do you much good.

    Everything in the Okie Panhandle is 30 miles away. Fortunately, it's flat as a pool table, and one can see that far out there.

    I don't live in the panhandle, but I've spent time there.

    One cannot get lost in the panhandle; the few trees there all point north - from the decades of wind blowing from the south.

    Us poor Okies. All summer long, Texas blows and Kansas sucks. In the winter, Kansas blows and Texas sucks. We're stuck in the middle.

    Got a care package together for a member here. A little powder, some primers, and 20 rounds of soft point. Will meet tomorrow after work just to the west of Syracuse.

    Fellas, I have about 100 (maybe more) nickle plated 357 brass. They need a good cleaning as they've set in a shed for several years, but seem to be good. Free to anyone who wants clean them up and use them. Just send a PM with your address.

    I found a small quantity(109 pcs.) of a mystery bullet. I will describe them as best as possible in the event someone would have a better use.
    Are .4515 diameter, 225 grains in weight, a semi jacketed hollow point with exposed lead point, a single cannelure(?) at approximately .25 from base. None of the current reloading manuals catalog such an item. I found only a single listing for a 225 grain bullet in Lee 2nd edition Modern Reloading in 45 ACP. I do not recall acquiring these. Neither of my 1911s like projectiles with exposed lead at the nose. Do not have a 45 LC.
    Any one curious or has use for these bullets PM me and they are yours.
    Thank you and have a great day.

    I've got a lightly used copy of Lyman's 48th up for grabs. This was forwarded to me by a fellow THR member, and I'd like to pay it forward, again.

    I'd like to see this go to someone here that NEEDS a good loading manual, particularly for cast, which is what I used it for.

    Post an 'I'll take it' here, and PM me, please.

    I'll take it! I'm still using my 45th addition from the 70s. Should have more info on newer powders for cast boolits. Thank you!

    That 45th is good but very small. The later manuals have waaaaay more cartridges

    Hi everyone I have 56 .40 cal cases of mixed head stamps if anyone is interested. Send me a PM if you're interested. All range pick ups since I just scoop and sort when I get home. I learnt a lot by just scooping, like 95% of people shoot 9mm followed by 40 and 45, seem they run close, .38, 357 and coming in dead last 380. At of all the scoops I think I recovered 4 380's out of 100's of cases. It may be area specific.
