    Yes, I changed that. I did not want to post his real email on a search engine readable forum. Bad manners, at least without his permission.
    And no, it's not StarlineBrass.com

    Now, I did enter a couple contests, but not with Starline directly. Makes me think there is a consortium of contest holders.

    And again, this prize is right up my ally. They hit the X with this one. I'm going to brag on Starline for years to come.
    And Dillon. I'll probably brag on Dillon for years to come.

    It looks like Starline screwed up again. that Email was supposed to have gone to me. Let's split the prize, you keep the press and send me the rest of the stuff. BTW, 41 magnum

    ^^^ :neener: Nice one! But sorry, I deserve this more than any.

    I just adopted 4 siblings and the money is tight-ish. I'm 61 and changing diapers, again.

    Actually, you deserve it less than the rest of it. You're not going to have any spare time. I volunteer to break it in and keep it in good condition for you until they leave home and you have time to use it, say, when the youngest one turns 26? No need to thank me. ;)

    I just called Debbie at StarLine.
    Told her your new delivery address looks suspiciously like mine ! :evil:

    Congrats on the win.

    Yup. Today an RL550c showed up at my house. And 500 pcs of Starline .308 brass.
    And a Starline hat, and 2 embroidered patches with Team Starline on them. And a gift certificate from Sierra for 5 boxes of my choice of projectile. I chose .308 168gr tipped matchking. I've been wanting to see what those do in my R700. Website says Out Of Stock. I'll wait.

    Pics later. I have a meeting to get to.

    The box is still unopened. I must be gaining patience in my age.
    I must say, the Starline brass sure is pretty. My first experience with it. Think I'll measure everything, just cuz I can.

    I'm still stoked.

    OK, unboxed. Looks like I need a couple of conversion kits. Like 9mm (#20127) and 308 (#20130) and Lockrings (#10668).
    Looks like this kit has everything but the Conversion Kits and the dies.
    OK, I need the Strong Mount as my thick wood table won't let the handle pull all the way down.
    Considering I already have dies in these calibers, do I need anything more?

    (I already have a functioning LNL, so I do have case prep tools, scales, tumbler and all the rest.)
