    Everyone needs to see this

    Years ago while conducting a rifle qualification for my agency shooting DOD issued M14s, we had a rifle explode due to a massive case failure (per the manufacturer (no longer in business) who took full responsibility.) of a "factory refurbished" round. The shooter was shooting from the prone...

    Reloading press

    Used my RCBS Rock Chucker for the last 45 years without a failure. Also have a Pro 2000 sand RCBS Turret but the Rock Chucker is my standby for the heavy work.
