    Looking forward to your review.

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    That's quite the platform! The mat is pretty cool too!

    I thought maybe, which is why I asked.

    Be careful. They're known to go KABOOM quite often!

    Not sure if that was tongue in cheek or not? According to Lon, and some research I've done, the new pythons aren't what they used to be. Sounds like maybe Colt needs to do a bit of refinement to them still. I was dead set on going out and getting one until I heard and read this. Now I'm going to sit back and wait.

    Need to replace 200Amp main house breaker

    What you're smelling and hearing makes me quite nervous to say the least. I'd get that looked at ASAP.

    Glad to hear it's better than it was, but sad to hear it's not up to your expectations. This and the other revolver issue you had with S&W has kinda caused me to pause in regards to purchasing anything smith related anymore. At least revolver wise. Sounds like their quality has really gone down hill over the last several years.
  10. That's friggin sweet! Nice job!

    As long as you're not compressing it TOO much. If you're really crunching it, you'll have problems with OAL (seating depth) changing and possible bullet deformation or seating die damage. I've compressed many loads, but be aware, there IS a limit.

    I would think the name "Python" would be trademarked, but I could be incorrect.
