Man! I am glad I braved the post Christmas crowds to go to town for some Break Free. At the ranch supply store I found a sale in progress. I bought a set of RCBS 7x57 dies for $18.75 US, three boxes of Hornady 6.5, 129 grain Interlocks for $12.99 ea, an RCBS heavy duty decapping die for $9 US and a 308 Lee Factory Crimp Die for $5 US. Gad!
Went to another store and they had an 18 pound capacity vibratory case cleaner for $129 with a three year warranty tossed in free. Twenty five pounds of walnut polishing media was $17 and a case spinner (to get rid of the media) was another $18. (half off due to a dented box) This outfit I split between a friend and myself as we have a lot of range pick-up .308 and .223 brass to clean. We fired up the cleaner tonight but the dammed RCBS "heavy duty" decapper snapped a pin on the third case I put through it. I'm using the Lee from now on.
Between two AR-10 rifles and all the reloading gear I bought I won't be eating this week but I'll probably still be grinning come payday.~Muir
