    Found the hoard of 257 Roberts brass . 160 pieces of never out of the boxes new , 1 lot brass packed 10/20/65 . Bushings for the Pacific D155s and a few MECs . The big win as far as parts go is the Lachmiller shell holder to replace the broken one on the press with the 12ga sizer decapping die in it , as an added bonus there is the long missing pivot pin also .

    Cut glass with a silver spoon makes a nice touch .

    Cool old cans of course , not seen is 4 new cans of H4831 . I ended up with about 14# of powder this sift . I know most of it is probably junk but it’s in cool cans .

    I got to use the Christmas knife last night .

    Step son killed a nice 4×4 with the truck . Called the SO they said “ok , any property damage ? Great , go eat it .”

    “Pop good news/bad news . I hit a deer but there’s no damage to me or the truck , it’s not dead yet” it was by the time I got there .

    You’re probably wondering what this has to do with that .

    Dad told me if I wanted to keep the knife I had to dress a deer here with it . So I’ve fulfilled that promise now .

    If the powder was stored in a cool dry place, it might still be good.  When it starts to go bad, doesn’t it have a light rust color to it?

    Cool score on the 257 brass, do you have a 257 to go with it?

    His last bench . The little glass there is a last of the set the design is etched , cut glass , the spoon is silver , heavy plate vs sterling . Makes it seem high rent to be an expensive glass and spoon . A little humor on my part to manage the little surge of mourning joy .

    High class redneck . Kind of like Southern Comfort in Leaded Chrystal or 60 yr old Coniac in a water glass .
