I must have been good in a past life !

Post by runnin n gunnin » Thu Dec 26, 2019 11:09 am

Well, what a Christmas. I have been Jonesing for a new Henry Side gate 45-70. The family did an end run and presented me with this yesterday:

To say the least, I was blown away. As if that was not enough, my wife also conspited with my son and presented me with a new Hornady AP progressive press !

My first quetion: Did the doctor call and am I dying?

I hope everyone had a great Christmas with their families !

Thanks all, I did pick up some Cowboy loads today JEBar. Weather is calling for rain for the next couple of days, once it breaks, I will be putting some rounds down range. Just ordered 45-70 dies and Starline Brass from Midway.

I spent the afternoon cleaning the rifle top to bottom, love the side gate. Load up with the side gate, and still use the magazine tube to download without having to cycle the remaining rounds through the rifle. I also started stripping down my reload bench. I'm going to re-do from the bottom up to accommodate the new press.

I'm still trying to figure it all out, like I said i''m either dying and don't know it, or did something real nice in a past life !
