    Thought maybe Tim would come over. I'm looking forward to the insightful loading info.

    Anybody know??? He's not on the member's list (that I could find)

    "I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS"

    So jeez, I went to Lynchburg, VA, to visit the (very elderly) momndad for the holidays.
    Took my family (four of us squished in a 2-dr Impreza), everyone got p---neumonia, grand old time, just back.

    Relax, I'll be spewing repeatedly for you.

    [I got the warm fuzzies; thanx.]

    Hey! I have one of those! A 1996 2-door model with the 2.2L, & it is coming up on 130,000 on the odometer.

    Great car - I'd buy another Subaru in a minute, & probably will once my daughter gets out of college & I buy my next new vehicle.

    I've towed my bike down to Florida with it a few times, this last trip my wife & I towed both our bikes down behind it. Never missed a beat, except my knock sensor went out on the way down. I guess it regulates the timing; it must of went to fully retarded & I was really lacking power. Got it fixed down there & on the way home I was able to keep up with anything that was driving sanely on the interstates, all the way to my home in hilly PA.

    I remember the first time we took it to Florida - my wife, step-daughter & myself. Believe me, my SD takes a wardrobe with her. We had half the back seat down, fully loaded with luggage, & towing my bike for over 1200 miles.

    Since we all made it down there without doing each other any bodily harm, I new we were going to be a solid family unit. Now, snipping at each other along the way was an entirely different issue....:eek:

    I've got a 1997 Outback, standard.

    I had it in Central Pennsylvania with me over Christmas when we had nearly 14" of snow.

    Never even burped.

    What a great car.

    Tim, someday when I'm solvent

    (HA!) I'm going to buy some ammo from you just so I can say I've got some.

    :p :p :p :p

    Sure! But, lemme bring my friend's Impreza:

    2002 WRX, Turbo 5-speed manual.

    What a fun car this is! A turbo charged 4 cylinder with all wheel drive that puts out about - what - 275 HP? I've driven it a couple of times, and it is a hoot to be behind the wheel - especially when some young kid pulled up at light in a Grand Prix GTA. Between him & his friend riding in the front seat, there had to be a cumulative age of maybe 40 compared to our 101 years. He got a slight jump while the turbo wound, & then it was bye bye...

    Good fun :D

    I gotta get me one!

    Excellent!

    Tim, I am glad that you are coming over.
    Always enjoy your posts!

    Family was here this Xmas - they brought us the flu!
    The gift that keeps on giving. (Still trying to understand their claim that a 15 month-old whose nose is running like a faucet does NOT have a cold).

    Yes, it 'Tis!

    Some psychos, however, think that I am already sick, Rick, due to my affinity for firearms!

    He who coughs last,coughs best!

    Being inside, and sick, though, also increases the propensity to dry fire more!!

    Praise the Lord, and pass the Alka-Seltzer Plus, along with the ammunition!!!!

    HOW I CELEBRATED THE NEW YEAR

    I made some 45 ACP ammo.
    Both on the EVE, and New Year's Day.
    For me me me, and my Caspian 1911.
    252g LRN-FP.
    660fps, makin' MAJOR.
    And kinda accurate, too.
    (The 1074fps 185g GS load was awesome out to 40 yds, but I want to knock steel down with complete authority; know what I mean?)

    Today, I think I'll make something else.........................

    Yes, just for me me me :neener:

    Barely broken in, then. Mine (my second) has - converted into antiquated 'murican measurments - around 258k (416' km) on the clock.

    To stay on topic: I sometimes use my Subaru to haul reloading supplies through the snow... :)
