    Where do you guys draw the line on value of the watch vs price to have it fixed? I was once quoted $500 to fix a watch I paid $125 for, which was a big pile of "nope" for me. Loved the watch, but...

    Never shot Xtreme, but I agree regarding Berry's - I've never had them shave lead or plating. I definitely had to adjust how much I was belling cases (more) when I switched to coated in order to...

    Man, "boom" isn't even the word. Those things go "whump." It's a whole different sound from modern smokeless powder. I can't ever see myself dealing with the absurd cleaning schedule that black...

    I'm surprised to hear you say that you can't tell the difference, but I imagine a lot of the perceived difference depends on which powders you're comparing, and in what size/weight of gun.

    My understanding is that dissipating heat has always been the major issue there. As long as we're using combustible propellant, that's likely to remain a difficult problem to solve, since the chamber...
