just a side note to AStahl:

My Mother's side of the family came in through the Port of New Orleans and their name was anglicized to Stall then. In Germany it's still Stahl.

There are many that are still Stahl. My grandfather came in through San Francisco apparently (never could figure that out) and his name remained Stahl as does mine.

This is my first post and I thought I'd bring up this older thread and add my story. Back when I was a kid I remember helping my Dad and my bachelor uncle Johnny reload their rifle ammo. Johnny had a sporterized 03-A3 that he loaded for speed and accuracy. When I grew up and moved to Colorado he gave me the 06 with instructions to get a deer and an elk with it. When Johnny passed I was given my pick of one item in his sporting items and I requested his reloading equipment. What I got was a Lyman Tru-Line Jr. with an assortment of dies, a powder scale, and an assortment of other reloading tools that included some that were home built. I used that little press for several years to reload my hunting and plinking ammo in 30-06 and .243. When my son got old enough to hunt elk I gave him a .308 and found I could combine the .243 and 06 dies to reload the .308. Now I was reloading for him, too. When he got married and moved away I decided he needed his own reloading equipment. I ran into a Lyman S-T press with .308 dies and an assortment of reloading tools at a garage sale and bought it. As I got older I needed a lighter rifle and got a Browning BLR in .308. the .243 and son's .308 are also BLRs. The old Tru-Line Jr. is too light to case resize and I had been using fire formed cases with no problem but I soon found that my son's .308 fire formed cases would not fit in my .308. He gave me the heavier Lyman press and I started resizing the cases with it. Now I am the reloader for the family. Am I a reloading perfectionist? No. Have my reloads killed any animals? You bet.

Weird. I'm seeing a spam post from October from a member who's been banned, and then I see Bo's, then mine, then yours.

But I see in the quote queue (as I write this) that the spam post and Bo's aren't there.

Any ideas, Ed?

For some reason Old Man Bo's post was marked as SPAM. I "approved" it and now it seems to be recognized and numbered. No idea why it required approval in the first place.

Thanks guys. You never know what goes on with automatic security software. Being a moderator of several groups I know about the vagaries encountered. Again, thanks for all your efforts.

Snake, not sure of the origin of you "handle" but I happen to have a year round cabin that becomes our hunting camp during big game season at the end of Rattle Snake Rock Road in the Colorado front range. The name has relevance in that when my son was a teenager he started catching rattlers with a forked stick and grabbing their tail and jerking their head off. He dried the skins and covered the walls of his room with them. Dad wasn't too pleased with his bravado but kids will be kids and he grew up to be an avid outdoorsman that is teaching his son to shoot and hunt.
