    i only have about 200 pieces of 458 socom brass. I’m considering giving in and paying crazy prices to get that up to about 500 pieces

    2F04A6FC-FCCF-4122-8976-72E4F41EDA4C.jpeg Loaded up 1 test round to see how it looks. I’ll load a couple more and shoot and check for pressure signs. Then step it up a bit

    Me thinks, some Sus have need of wedding-mint-green injections for their rank smelling selves. Go forth and inject.

    When "One-Mama Sow" waddles on in, be sure to sing to her: "Here comes the bride, fair, fat, and wide..." just before she gets her wedding-mint-green party favor.
