Do you need a care package tac???
I use Jasmine rice for a good scrubbing then into the corncob media w/wax for a good shine.;)
V. kind of you to offer, sir, and your sentiments are much appreciatelled. Sadishly, the cost of shipping over a seven-pound bag of the stuff could be into three figures, but I know you meant well!! :)

It’s a lot like white rice but I was told they have larger grains so they don’t stick into the flash hole like regular long grain white rice, plus they smell nice...:D

I did 500 45acp, 250 38spl, just set up for 9mm.
I got one of those test pack from badman bullets. But honestly he isn't any cheaper than Berry's bullets at cabelas. So I will probably not use them again unless they go on sale which I'd guess they dont.

Jasmine is white rice. I might suggest Arborio rice.:)

More than you probably wanted to know.
Types of Rice
Arborio
345324.jpg
Arborio rice is a medium grain rice that is wider in size and has a characteristic white dot at the center of the grain. It is named after the town of Arborio in the Po Valley of Italy, where it is grown. Due to the high starch content of Arborio rice, it has a slightly chewy and sticky consistency and develops a creamy texture when cooked.

Length: Medium grain
Flavor Profile: Creamy
Ideal For: Risotto, rice pudding, soup

For the record. When we eat rice it's Jasmine.

:D

Just don't cook it to the creamy point before you tumble your brass in it. :s0114:

I'm not a rice person in general. Unless it's all dressed up with something that has flavor. Rice-A-Roni, Mahatma/Vigo Yellow Rice. Or leftover, plain white rice with leftover pork and veggies with soy sauce. Wifey digs plain white rice with butter, salt and pepper. Ick.

Not physically re-loading but went through some converted 300BLK cases that I had prepped last year. I had provided a member with a link about converting.223/5.56 into 300BLK and what HS that are not suited for this task (necks too thick).
One of the FC head stamps that has been labeled a no go found its way into my 250+ pile of conversions... I found 4 already primed and ready to load....
The cases on the right are G2Go, the left are not.
See the note below.

very similar to any mid-sized straight wall pistol case!!!
If you can load 41/44/45 or 38/357 there's minimal difference IMHO.

I've discovered I'm more accurate at the range with 155g slugs in the 1100-1250 fps range. YMMV.
Yeabut just remember you're dealing with a miniature atom bomb!




woulda inserted that jello graph but too lazy
