Re: Why You should Avoid flood Waters

We have very specific protocols for flood rescue. It's been a few years since our last major event, and hopefully years to go. Rapid decontamination is critical after urban water rescue, there is some seriously nasty stuff out there - it drives me nuts that parents will let kids play in standing flo...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

Remlin lever action 30-30 from a guy down the street, not a gun guy - he bought it new last year and it's been in the box ever since.
Now he needs parts for his truck - so thank you ford motor company for my new 100 dollar rifle. Please keep breaking.

Re: 20 Volt Multi-Tool Sets: Opinions and Experiences

When I was doing maintenance full time I had pretty much every 18v tool dewalt made, before the 20v lithium came out. When I moved to welding I kept using them, until I got stuck on a job in Midland and ended up hanging sheet instead of welding. One of the guys on the crew had this tiny red impact a...

Re: Breachpen - High Temp Cutting/Welding

I've used a lot of oxygen lances, you can pretty much blow through anything with one. A few seconds of thermite bar might be handy in a very few narrow situations but seems more gimmick than practical tool. If you want a heavy rescue tool for manipulating molten metal- look into a petroGen torch. No...

Re: Freezing Water supply?

I have switched to 2 and 3 litre soda bottles, not so much for the water prep ( I've got multiple redundancies) but for the freezer itself. First, more thermal mass helps maintain temps in a no power situation and secondly, saves power by reducing cycle time. Empty space does not maintain well - kee...

Re: Remington 700

Quality trigger, bed and float and throw away the deresonator. Unfortunately Remington has tarnished their reputation in the last several years - it has become hit or miss, pun intended, to get one that will really shoot. This of course depends on you standards. 1 moa is sufficient for most hunting ...

Re: Wildlife concerns in your AO.

Here in central Texas, the biggest problem is the "methican American" tribe. Still a few big cats but they're more likely to run when approached. Javalina and wild boar can ruin your day in a hurry.

I was thinking of the Lee Carbide Factory crimp die, which resizes the loaded round as it crimps, however it does not appear to be available for 300bo. The other option is a redding small base bushing die. This is a resizing die with a bushing to allow custom neck tension/sizing. You could use it by...
