    So, what's hiding in that blob?

    Here's a hint.... More later.

    Go personally and meet with your county Sheriff.

    Most from outside FL have no clue who and what the Sheriff does in FL. He is the chief law enforcement officer in every county. His deputies are the ones responsible for controlling all criminal activity including the drugs, in the county, they also have the dogs that are LEOs in their own right. Everyone should meet and talk to their Sheriff about how they view their job as a Chief LEO and an elected public official that is sworn to defend and protect the US Constitution. Every public official in this country takes the very same oath of office regardless of state or position.

    Sig sauer bankrupt

    Glad to hear Sig USA and Germany are separate corporate structures. I do not have any Sig guns anymore, my last P226 a tricked out W German gun went to an OK Deputy Sheriff with a young wife and new baby boy. He reminded me of a friend that I met 45 years ago who became the chief deputy for our county.

    The Media here.............

    Revisionist historians are now trying to claim that the country's history of slavery began in 1619, even though we weren't the same country then as we became in 1776.

    @ $399/bottle, Blanton's is a bit too rich for my meager budget. I'm more inclined to buy George Dickel or Pappy Van Winkle, depending on my mood.

    Yes. His point of reference is the diameter, or area on the bullet that will engage the lands of the rifling. Too much variation in tips to use that as a point of reference unless you are limited to magazine length. Sometimes the OAL (bullet tip to base) is the measurement you have to use though if your bullets are too long or skinny to actually make contact with the rifling. This is common with the AR platform for many of the cartridges it uses. This is also why it's important to have a tool to be able to measure the distance from the ogive of the bullet to the base of the cartridge and the distance in the chamber where the bullet will jam into the lands. This way you get no "surprises", or at least fewer surprises.

    Blanton's Kentucky Bourbon Single Barrels

    When I drank Bourbon MANY moons ago , I'd drink Ezra Old Crow JD An if I took it up again I'd consider larceny Bourbon . Knew a WWl & WWll veteran back in the day whom liked to have a snort now and then I remember the bottle but Not the content " Old Rye Whisky " ,was just a plain white brown label with Old Rye Whisky written in script . I remember this fellow for a few reasons ,had us kids collect Dandelions before mowing the neighborhood lawns . Make damn good Dandelion Wine I may of become a chemist because of that . Yep water into Wine and old Pete wasn't religious that I can remember . Kept the plumbing from rusting is what he used too say , must of been something too that ; Pete lived to be 102

    That's why I wrote about the comparison to the 140gr. The 140gr is 0.10" shorter than the 145gr, but the difference from the bullet base to ogive is 0.020", with the 145gr obviously being longer. So if seated to the same COAL the jump would be significantly longer (by .080") with the 145gr being drawn out so much more.

    I do what Greg mentioned a lot of times. Additionally, Check RMR and American reloading for pulled Gold Dot and HST Bullets. Those are premium pills, and can often be found for a fraction of the cost of new.

    And another "So that's how they do that".

    A crap load of white oak goes into making barrels every year , Whisky couldn't survive without them !. A bourbon barrel spends the first two-plus years of its life imparting rich flavor and color to the bourbon aging inside its charred oaken staves. By law, a barrel can be used just one time to distill bourbon in the US, despite the fact that these well-crafted barrels have a “lifespan” of up to 60 years. This regulation, combined with a renaissance in bourbon popularity, means distilleries and their cooperage partners have a supply of bourbon barrels that are looking for their next calling.

    The Media here.............

    Those educated and accurate historians ,neglected to inform all the ships stowaways that their own kind sold them !. America gave them somewhere to disembark . Now regrettably I wish we had custom officials back in the colonial empire , that had denied entry and left them off at other destinations or too swirl around and down into the big pond !!. That way they could of had a marvelous life back in the jungles and been happy without all our EVIL WHITE PRIVILEGED welfare ,housing , education and modern medicines . They would have been so productive in their homeland

    His measurements on jump are from the ogive to lands. That is the only way we all can compare apples to apples. Using a loaded length tells us nothing. You can verify that by measuring a box of bullets. Look at hollow point match pills and you may see as much as 0.015 variance but by measuring off the ogive we can achieve a far higher degree of consistency. Greg
