    I have just acquired a Texan H3 301 exactly like Freebore's. (Well sort of, mines in pretty bad shape) I'm going to try and restore it but am having trouble getting the lower torsion cylinder that attaches to the pull arm to come out (Freebore you have mail).

    The Laymans is one that i picked up at a gun show for $35.00 and restored it.I also have the 7/8-14 thread adapter plate for it as well. The Pacific i just bought from my grandfathers estate. Going to keep it just the way it is. I only have the 2 shell holder for it 30/06 and 45/70.

    Still using my RCBS Rockchucker (stamped '73) and Ohaus 10-10 beam scale that I first started with back in '73 or '74. Looking forward to bringing my Ohaus Duo-Measure back online as well. The powder reservoir broke during a move and I've been unable to find a factory replacement. Took an empty bottle of Propel flavored water and removed the threading on the neck. It actually fits better than the original plastic reservoir. Cut a hole in the bottom and fitted a stopper. Haven't tried it out yet. Hoping that the plastic in the bottle doesn't create a major static issue.
