64° here in Upstate NY this morning, it looks like it is going to be a decent day. The high temperature is to get up to about 82° with a 30% chance of showers.

Yesterday was a nice day, there was a bit of rain first thing in the morning but then it turned off nice. I spent part of the day straightening out a problem at the gun club. We have some new members and they aren't yet as knowledgeable as they need to be about our rules.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Morning from Waseca, 89 now, maybe some rain and 82. Heading to Iowa Falls again to keep cleaning up the estate. Monday I found 28 buckets of clean range scrap lead. I did find a semi-local buyer for it.
Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

Good morning all. It’s 72 with rain in Indy heading for 82 with rain. Looks like a day for processing rifle brass and loading pistol ammo. Wish I had a handy place to shoot rifles. 25 yards indoors doesn’t get it. Sigh. Off to the pancake house.

Y’all keep your powder dry and have a good day.

morning all. 58 with 80 in sight later today. It tried to rain yesterday but all we got was a few drops with the wind and dirt blowing!
Worked on two sprinklers most of the day, got them both running again. And I also got both balers serviced and full of twine, ready for the next dry hay.
Not sure what today will bring yet, haven't checked the hay but might bale today.
Better get moving, have a great day.
GOD BLESS. Dean

good morning folks. It's 68º here with clouds. Supposed to clear up and get to 90 later with similar humidity. We could use some rain, but doesn't look like we'll be getting any today. There's been rain all around us the past several weeks but it seems to have missed us as of late. I spent about an hour pulling crab grass out of the back yard last night. The areas I seeded are burning out and only the crab grass is remaining. I should have watered but forgot. :eek: But this dang crab grass has got to go. Too late to wast money on spray or granuals. Figure the best thing is to pull it now so it doesn't go to seed. I'll re-seed the lawn again in the fall and then hit it a few times with crab grass pre-emergent mix. Shouldn't be too tough to get rid of.

It's almost Friday Mike...hang in there. ;) Have a good one.

Good morning, GoGo. For those of us still working, we're over the hump! It's 70 in Louisville with really heavy rain. It's supposed to reach 82 with pretty heavy rain nearly all day. My tomatoes are pretty much dried up, but the rain will give a boost to Miss Cindy's mini-pumpkin vine. We picked 25 the other day, and that's one vine.

I dug out my reloading bench yesterday and found a bullet-seating measurement tool that's been "lost" for quite a while. I also poked around some in the "gun room" and located a brass trimmer I think I'll be using pretty soon. My 6BR chamber is cut to accept really long brass, but brass doesn't all grow at the same rate, so at some point it makes sense to get everything trimmed to the same length. Little things add up; "stacking," I think they call it.

Y'all have a good'n and keep your powder dry. Prayers for TAJ and Markbo as they continue their recoveries.

Mornin boys...
73 here high on RUGER Mt this morning.
No rain yet but it did sprinkle a bit yesterday.
Took off today and slep in. Don't know what I'll
do but might see if I can load a few for a friends
6.5x284. Its been a hard 1 to find a load for...its
a sa sa saa and has problems from the time he got it.
Front action screw hole was crossed threaded from the
factory and he said it had shavings in the chamber when he
finally got the bolt out. Had a guy get the threads fixed and
hoped it would be the fix, but aint helped yet. Its the long range
hunter and you would think it should shoot but we aint found
nothing yet it seems to like. I know, its a sa sa saa..but ...He a
friend and I'm really tring to help him out, might be the stock, that's the next
thing to check out, we'll see.
You all have a gooden today and GOD Bless...


Donnie

PS...can't believe I'm trying to find a load for a sa sa saa...
This just aint right in so many ways...

Low 70's in the hollow, going to upper 80's we're told. I spent a good part of yesterday with gun club business, first accompanying a home inspector to look at the house we are buying that is adjacent to our new range property. We don't actually "need" it, but it is probably the only probably source of complaints, so we felt it best to buy it when it came available. We haven't made a definite decision what to do with it, but we'll probably try and find a renter who will serve as a partial caretaker for the property in exchange for reduced rent. Next I visited the rifle range site and was pleased with the progress. As with most things it is taking longer than we would have liked, mostly due to this year's extra rainfall. At this point we are within 1/2" of the annual total rainfall for the year. This has slowed progress, but OTOH has made the dirt more compactable, so it's probably a good thing. It is shaping up to be very nice with 400 yard capabilities in addition to 100, 200 & 300 meter berms. We plan to have two side by side ranges, one will be a 100/200 for non competition and the longer for competition and those who wish to shoot a little longer. 30 benches on the big range and 12-16 on the smaller. It's moving along.

G'day Y'all,
Rick

Great morning folks,

Clear & 66° with a high in the mid 80's later.

I cruised around the desert in the RZR for a few hours yesterday. It was a productive scavenger trip. I picked up a USGI folding shouvel, brass, lead and 11¢. :D

Deb made it back to Wyoming At 4:20pm, almost 24hrs travel time.:rolleyes:

The big news of the day, after a few years of not owning a 308, I have one again.

Check your local Wal-Mart store for their in store clearance sales.

I bought Weatherby Vanguard with nice wood stock for $350. Tupperware stocked version was $250 but those were sold out in 308.

60* chance of rain. I am going to try and get the dreaded carbon ring out of my rimfire. I never took much stock in the carbon ring theory until groups started to open up. I usually blame the indian and not the arrow. I took a look with a borescope and there it was.
I understand they can be a pain to get our. It is my favorite CZ 452. They have a lapped bore so that should help a little.... I hope. I have more chemicals than the Wizard of
Alchemy and will start the attack soon. I am going to try and find some GM top end cleaner and see if it is effective.

GM top end cleaner:. The old stuff was a NASTY concoction of carcinogenics. I started to check out an OLD privately owned dealership some years back for the old mix but after doing more research on it, my thoughts were " Why take the chance?". Rubber gloves for sure and don't remember about the vapors.
Staples slipped right out y'day. Got a new scrip for knocking the egde off before bedtime -WITHOUT turning my lower GI into a concrete plant.....prune juice + ducolax ain't touching it.

Very breezy and cool but high humids. 2.3" in last 24 hrs and that's a gooood thing.
Got a call to sub for Bridge next Tues. Something else to look fwd to. Latuh.....To

T.D.C., I had a similar carbon ring problem with my silhouette rifle. As I recall, it took a couple of days soaking with Kroil's and then a light work over with JB.

I have a swab dampened with Slick 2000 carbon killer soaking in the chamber. I use a bore guide and a pistol rod. I expect it will be a couple of days on and off and finish off with JB. Report to follow.
I have a 452, 455 , two Win 52's and a couple of Marlins and some Stevens rimfires. Wanna guess what my weakness is? Anybody got a 452 they would like to move along? This could be a second job.

A long tome ago a female friend had clog problems in her drain. She recommended something called Evac-U-Gen. It worked, but I needed a seat belt to stay on the throne. It might be outlawed now for all I know.
