    Totally understand - learning is priceless. So huck the thing in the recycle bin and grab another piece of metal!

    Don't know what was wrong with the previous versions and don't really care. Because this one WORKS. I think the diameter of the sizer ended up being 426-427 to size bullets to .430. Guess there's a fair bit of spring back in those bullets. Thankfully I was smart enough to try hammering bullets through the die when I was getting close. Had I bored it to .430, I'd have been waaay to big.

    The game of cricket played here pales in comparison to the pan-dimensional sport of Brockian Ultra-Cricket based on the Krikkit Wars.

    A cloud moved this morning, there was something red and orange hanging in the sky.

    Oh, it's gone again.

    So they say you'll spend more on tooling for a milling machine, than for the actual milling machine.
    Truth.
    Although, I DID get the machine cheap. But I'm probably a third the way into the price of a new similar model .
    I should now be pretty well set with this last order. Till I look through the catalog and find something else that I didn't know I needed.

    With what's going on now in the U.S. with all these crazy groups of people the movie was kind of prophetic in that respect. Life imitating art thing.

    At least with my order I got yet another personal email saying my order was received, saying she had been watching for it since she emailed me about a promo they had last week, and thanking me. COMPANIES DONT DO THIS. I'm convinced they are aliens, just trying to gain my trust so they won't have to use anesthetic when they kidnap and probe me.
