I'm 6+ hours into drilling out a 16mmX2.0 crankshaft bolt.

I've just finished packing my carry on for a flight to LA to visit 2 of my kids and have a belated Bday party for me there. On Monday I fly from there to Hobby Airport Houston to spend a week with my Grandkids, daughter and a great SIL. So no reloading for the next several day. I don't mind. :D In a month or 2 I'll will have moved to Sugarland where they live. So I'm just killing time waiting for the FUN to begin. Oh and on this trip my ugly ornery no good rotten 13lbs best furry friend will accompany me. It will be interesting to see how he likes flying. He does love car rides and meeting new people. Wish me luck traveling with this little best friend monster. ;)
An ignorant person is one who doesn't know what you have just found out.

When setting a job up for myself it must be Idiot Proof as well, as I am a bigger idiot than most people I know, and I prove it to myself everyday.

Trying to figure out how to get a very noisy family of raccoons out of my chimney.

Add 5 more hours on my bolt drilling project.

That was my first thought, but the ladies of the house didn't want to hear it.

Sounds like a job for a .22 automatic.

I mixed up a harder alloy for experimentation in my 9mms and 45 ACPs. Alloy running around 18-19 BHN (A much respected member on another forum may have swayed me to try harder bullets). I cast up about 100 125 gr. RNFP at .358"-.360" for my 9mms and about 100, 200 gr SWC running around .455". I'll size and lube and try them in my RIA 1911 and new Ruger LC9s-Pro...
