    MTA wait until you order some powder or primers online and you find out that on top of the shipping is a $20 Hazmat fee.

    Being cheap is why you have money to spend on things that matter, like guns and ammo!

    Test rifle finally showed up today. Ruger American in .308 and I slapped a Nikon Prostaff 4-12x on top

    What issues are you having with the Hornady hand primer?

    Just had a primer fall in to where the spring is at and jam the whole thing. Took some work but i got it out. Overall, kinda clunky to work with

    Ah. I have the Hornady also. Not the best but it gets the job done.

    The Lee hand primer is okay. It rarely jams up and is easy to clear but I swear it is made for people with tiny hands.
