    Has anyone ever used the "ammo wizzard"? A friend of mine said his dad bought one and it picks the grass clean. I think they were originally used for walnuts but have been designed for smaller brass hulls.

    Yes i'm lucky i can shoot on my property as well even hunt which i do . I shoot competetion grade rifles and pistols . I spend a great deal of time more than most weighing out brass ,trimming the neck diameter and length . I try to get my brass and every reloading componet the same as close as possible . I take great care of my brass not allowing it to just fling out .On some guns i have had the builder disable the extractor where it just dribbles out the brass to catch on a towel or leather mat . yes i know this is extreme but I enjoy tiny tiny groups .

    When at the club I try and get the farthest bench right and lay a tarp down too. pull the corners together and slide them into a box or bucket. I dont even reload yet possibility I never will. Sent JLA a bunch of brass and have tons more but havent been shooting in awhile due to my shoulder.

    When i was a kid and w just moved down from the bush to the west of Sydney the old range at pitt town had a semi tamed magpie who'd pick up a shell fly to the bucket , drop the shell in and then get old erny would give it a seed or bit of mince

    when erny became too ill they just put out the seed in a bowl next to the bucket and the bird helped himself but still collected all the shells casings , a two day break would see the bucket full , the bin full of shells too and the seed bowl empty and not a shell on the range

    birds been dead 30 years now , earny 35 the range at pitt town gone now 20 or more ,

    much prefer the old days eh ..

    It is a good product but it has a lot of weak spots, unlike my favorite 3g nut collector. Here you can see a quick demonstration that I record about this tool. I promise, you are gonna love it!

    Is there a way to lock threads beyond a certain age and archive them?

    There is one "forum" that is nothing but archived technical threads. One of those threads (from 2003) was resurrected within the past few days. As of right now there are 143,106 threads with 1,379,060 posts. I don't want the job of having to archive and close them!!

    Larry has nothing to do all winter ;). He's the historian, have him put history in place.

    I got thinking about that after I had posted it. That would be a lot of man hours. See why I don't take an IQ test.
