Time to start working on a pumpkin air cannon @dddoo7. Those things are impressive.
Just a guy who loves guns, beer, food, family, and all kinds of stuff.

RE: You shoot better unconscious
Another excellent article. I remember your coffee cup comment you made to me a few months ago about shooting. This really went into depth explaining that thought process.
As I was reading through it, I was just recalling some of my past range sessions, thinking real hard on my trigger finger pull, the rear bag, not closing my eye during the shot. Lots of that stuff. Now I feel I have some practice ahead of me.
Explain to me why...Cleaning Rods/Bore Guides
So a few years back I bought a nice one piece rod. Its a Pro-Shot Micro Polished rod. I bought the .22cal because I figured it would work in my .223, .243, and .308 rifles, and it has. Why is it that you see caliber specific rods out there and what do you gain by using them? I have no problem buying another rod, but why do I need it?
Then on bore guides. I understand their purpose to be so you don't jam the rod and jag into the chamber and damage it. I have a Tipton universal fit one that works pretty well. But what do you gain by going to a action/caliber specific guide?
RE: Starline rifle brass; any good?
I've never used it as until a few months back all my reloading is bottle neck rifle cases. But they have a strong following and great track history with straight walled brass.
For that price, on .223 it would be a cheap gamble to find out how good it is. It should be at least okay enough for AR blasting rounds. It may not be up to match quality though.
Two Box Chrono
I don't recall seeing this posted before. I came across it while looking at the site for the auto trickler he sells.
$300 isn't bad considering that this system doesn't require you to shoot through it, the sun isn't a factor, and it doesn't mount to your barrel messing so you can use it during load development.
I would love one of them...but the 10k plus price tag buys a lot of guns and ammo. I can get into a side dump 5 gal capacity with recirculating water for about $1500. Thing is I don't know if it would be much easier than the 5 gal rotary I use now. It would probably be faster though.
I don't know. I go back and forth. If I buy a big one for wet stainless I'm still gonna want a second one for rice. At that rate I might as well keep the rotary for stainless and just get a Thumblers for rice.
Have you ever looked into cement mixers? I know of guys that do that for large volumes of SS tumbling.
My New Old Press
Its not a Co-Ax but its for sure better a step up from my Lee. The Lee bushing system is okay but has a lot of slop in it. Also Lee's don't cam over. So you don't know if your getting the same amount of force applied to each case. The Lee has been setup in the garage for decapping/swagging service.
Its a Pacific 007, now known as Hornady. I picked this one up for $50, painted it, and took all the rust off in about two hours. Greased up the ram rod, and pins. Its really smooth for its age. I'll pick up a Inline Fabrication roller handle for it soon too.
