    Ok, I have a weird need.

    The fella who regularly looks out for me at Bi-Mart needs a set of 6.5*52 carcano dies- and neither he or I can find them anywhere.

    Anyone know where I might be able to find 'em ?

    Blarby, I found a couple of hits on Google, but got firewalled out of them since I'm at work. Lee will make a set, but they're not cheap. http://leeprecision.com/custom-services.html#SRD

    I'll keep a lookout for a set. I'm not familiar with the 6.5 x 52. Is it the same as the 6.5 Carcano?

    I apparently have a spare .45 Colt Factory Crimp Die, free to someone that needs it. No idea where it came from!

    Potatohead, with regards to blarby, it started when he generously traded "A LOT" of 200 gr SWC bullets he casted for me just before the current "shortage".

    When all the casters were backlogged and unable to ship bullets for months with store shelves empty of ammunition, I was able to share my stock piles of bullets with family/friends/neighbors who could not get any ammunition (in fact, I am STILL shooting those bullets). My brother-in-law even had to drive 8 hours each way so he could pick up ammunition from me to qualify for his CCW and for my sister to shoot a NRA match. It was definitely frustrating times that's still not over.

    When this thread was started, it absolutely warmed my heart and I am sure many were glad to receive the various "unobtainium" from fellow THR members who graciously gave without expectations. It is for these reasons why I support this thread and blarby whenever I can.

    Indeed, this is a unique thread to THR and by a nice bunch of THR members. I mean these days, who gives away valuable stuff to total strangers and pay the shipping too? :D

    Yep, there are some very good people on here. I've bought a lot of items on this site and usually send cash. Never a bit of trouble from anyone. Good to be able to trust people I've never seen or met.

    Clearcut, I was in Cabelas in Reno on Sunday. They had a couple of bags of Remington 250 Savage brass. Might be worth a phone call.

    I have two bags of .40 brass. One has 74 pieces, the other has 73. I can keep them separate or ship together depending on demand. More will follow shortly.
