BD408, I checked out your sites too. Nice work, everything Centre Punch said. What grabbed me was your WYO ATV trip!! Man that looked like a blast. I'm a relatively new ATV owner/operator and that looked like something right up my ally. Great scenery and what looked like really fun ride.
Thanks for sharing.........
Jim

MT4Xfore:

Thanks! I have lots of fun doing the custom work, only part time! The 4 wheeler trip is real fun, we go again this year, July 2nd...anyone is welcome to tag along. We will be out there all week.

I am going to take a tour through the Hornaday plant next week, order some custom dies for the SnipeTac. Also looking into the New Hydraulic form dies they offer, no fire forming. Under 130.00! I guess you fill the case with water, insert into the special die that matches your chamber, smack the die with a hammer several times and the case comes out formed. No more wasted primers and powder.

BD408,

Could you get me some information on that forming die, sounds like a hell of a system. As you know I could also use that little jem!!

If you prefer a private e-mail would be good.

Thanks,

Kirby Allen(50)

Fiftydriver:

That was my thought exactly! I have several of the SnipeTacs on order and the guys dont want to mess with making the brass. I'll get the info next week.

Thank you, look forward to the information. $130 seems awful cheap but I guess you take it when you can get it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]!! Doesn't happen often in this business!!
