    maybe only for a cheapskate like me though.

    Last fall I bought 250 pieces of 6.8 brass from Starline. I loaded 100 of them and left 150 in a dish pan under my bench.

    About 2 weeks ago I started to organize my brass and found I was short 50 pieces of Starline 6.8's. I do remember taking the rifle and a 50 count box of loads when we visited T2S. I called him asking if he has seen it, nope.

    This is bad news for a cheap anal freak. I searched all through the basement and for the life of me I couldn't find it.

    Yesterday I decided it was a lost cause, I'll just load of some of the Hornady brass I have stashed in a 30 cal ammo box. When I dumped it out into a tray and started sorting through it I found all 50 Starline pieces.

    Whew! That was close.

    What I need to do is win the lottery so I can ditch all brass and start fresh with nothing but Starline. I'm accepting donations, 50's and 100's only please

    Lot of people like that brass. I've never used it. I don't find a lot of difference in different brands of Brass. But my preference is Win. Relatively inexpensive and find it pretty much every where.

    I gotten so forgetful that now a days I will drive around a large store parking lot until I can find a parking space at the front of one of the rows so I don't have to spend to much time to find my truck.

    As I said many of time that I should buy some of that Ginkgo biloba to help my memory, but I forget to buy it.

    I'd need a new Reloading room, 40x60 should do it. The problem with that is I'd have so much stuff I'd likely forget what I have. Then go buy new, bring it home, put it away next to the one I already have.

    Some say it's the eyes. I can't see that as truth. Others suggest its hearing. But ive never heard that myself
