    Yesterday morning. The slow poke 308 working at 740 and 910 yards. I’m fairly deep into the trans at 910.

    ^^^ If a hole is needed, I’d rather they make it with something other than a framing hammer 🙄😡

    Bay 2 only needs another course and a half and I’m done processing for a while.

    Where were you?

    Airborne headed to our destination airport. We were told by ATC to land at the nearest airport that could accommodate our aircraft size based runway length available, etc... Muncie IN became our new home for several days. We did not learn of what had happened until we were on the ground as no...

    What did you do in the reloading room today?

    Tikka T1X

    Built/assembled this for critter control in Hooterville. We live directly across the road from 20 plus acres of rough timber. With that fact established, it’s a steady stream of coon, opossum, skunk, etc... making their way over in the evening to eat cat food. My 22’s live on a steady diet of...

    They’re sparse here. See one once in a while. We had one in the yard that we had planted 5-6 years ago. Derecho snapped it off at the base. I believe they’re more common further south (dust belt). Planted to stop erosion. Could be wrong.

    We’ve had a day or two with clouds and comfortable temps. Started on this blown down Oak Monday, and worked on it again this afternoon. Limb wood so far. The stem won’t be the best, but it’ll still make some heat.

    Rotating machinery will kill you

    In ag class in high school, we got to see the farm safety film (pre VHS days) right before lunch. Fella’s stepping over spinning PTO shafts with loose fitting britches on (it’ll skin you like a rabbit), and clearing corn picker heads (pre combine days) were most common. One of the few times I...

    Reloading Equipment Iowa Trade Thread

    Thanks for starting this thread @IowaGeologist. Just came across it today. I’ll give you Iowa fellas first crack at this before putting it in it’s own thread in the PX. Once fired 308 Federal GMM brass out of an AI bolt gun in full lots of 200 per. Straight out of the gun and into the bag. The...

    Our guess is in the 1920’s. We renovated it 12 years ago.

    Foggy, damp morning here. Finished my “real” job work on the computer, and figured I’d catch up on some processing. By 1100 the sun broke through, the humidity got nasty, but was already started, so I figured why not. Had 2 fans going and was in the shade so it was bearable. Mostly Shagbark with...
