Stopped at a local flea market today to pick up a Gadsden flag. Walking around looking at all the crap people was selling when a box on a table caught my eye. I opened the box and it had 500 Hornady 35gr Vmax's, 500 40gr vmax's, 500 55gr vmax's, New Redding 22 Hornet dies, a Lee Factory crimp die for 22 hornet, one lb of 4227, and 1k of CCI small rifle primers.

I asked the lady how much for the box and she said!!!!

Something went right today! However, when I got home the Hot water heater had shit to bed and the basement was flooded. $450 later and a sore back from humping the old one out and the new one in I wonder if it was pay back for the $5 buy!

Be loading some 22 hornets. Need to dust off the old model 40 and put a few down range!

Is it just me or is it funny when they call it a "hot water heater" If the water was hot why heat it. I just run a water heater.

Mine is a cold water heater. Our ground water is damn near freezing!

It still was a good price for the reloading components.

    Look at it the other way around.... Your water heater was already "blowing" when you arrived at the swap-meet. Someone was watching out for ya, and blessed you with a deal.

    Things work out in the end.

    The hot water heater leaked a little in my house.
    The insurance paid $30k.

    I know another guy who had all the sheet rock replaced in the whole house, even the upstairs, after the hot water heater leaked. He got a lawyer to get the most out of the insurance. That was > $100k.

    Call the insurance right away.
    If it is like my situation, they send over a half dozen guys in uniforms with de-humidifying equipment that will use all the 220 Volt power you have.

    Lots of guys will be sent.
    The floor replacement guy was a hunter.
    The trim replacement guy's supervisor [program manager] has a license to build suppressors.


    The anode, in the hot water heater, is sacrificed at a steady rate.
    You either replace the anode or the whole heater.

    I now have a collector and electric monitors.
    No one ever falls for the leaky water heater twice, but the same house will get it twice, when under new management.
