    Hey Jimm,
    Very, very, nice and indeed worth waiting for.

    Like you i cant wait to show off my new stick and try it out on the range. Made a mistake calculating my base/ring hieght so i am waiting for a new set of Badgers.

    PS. I noticed in your photo the RCBS bench primeing tool, in my opinion one of the finest reloading tools available. Ooh, and where did you host your photos?

    Boman ,

    Hey Centrepunch ,

    I do like the RCBS primer tool. I have used hand held primer tools of various mfg. and liked them too. It just so happened that the last time a hand held tool gave out I was at a place that had the RCBS tool marked way down ,so, I bought it.I can sy without hesitation it has served me well. Have you had to grind off the mushroom that forms on the bottom of the priming post ? That post is not hardened and over a period of time it will form a mushroom on the bottom that causes the post /stem whatever to hang up and the new primer will spill out.No big deal , just grind off the mushroom and your good to go again.A few more dollars invested in the production of this tool would eliminate this prob. but would not make it perform any better at it's task.

    oh yeah , I used photo bucket as Abinok suggested , worked as good as I wanted.A problem I have found when trying to use such sites is that you seem to pickup more bugs than elsewhere. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif So ,I watch for the signs and respond accordingly , it does'nt matter what protection you have , there is always a bigger dog out there BTW , the .243 AI is here too /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif, just waiting on scope back from Leupold . Man , those fireformed cases are purty( just had to use the southern spelling). I'll post pics whe I can. Jim
