Powr has met some kids that you claim to be yours. I am thinking this goes along the same lines as the lady who claims to have gotten pregnant by watching 3D porn...

They are your kids or do you have possession of 3 children that may or may not have been lured into an old jeep?

I was goin to make a sick comment, but its not cool to go into the realm of talking ish when children are involved. They're helpless to defend themselves.

I thought that's why they were appetizing?

I want to do some shooting as well maybe Saturday if I can get my crap together before then.

I am not sure. My folks are in town currently. My Dad would probably like to go shooting but my Mom... not so much. My Dad and I wanted to do the front side of Wheeler Pass but my Mom didn't get out of bed until 1 in the afternoon. Would have made for a late trip.

For me, I can load my .45 for around .20/rd, minus labor. I can get about 100 rds an hour, so if I say my time is worth $20/hr, that makes it cost .40/rd, which at that rate, I'm better off buying it at .39/rd at Walmart. My 204 or 308 on the other hand, I can make loads specific for my intended use(long distance accuracy) BTW, I will NEVER trust anyone's reloads for a defense use. Factory new only, and a good type. Reloads are great for target shooting and hunting only, IMHO!
All very valid points to which for the most part I agree (especially about defense use). Regardless of how much the time vs cost per round works out to be, I mostly want to see how it's done and learn how to do it. Constantly running over to ksturgios every time I want to get some ammo then taking all day/night to reload some rounds doesn't sound that appealing for either one of us. I would gladly go and work on reloading his rounds just to get the knowledge/experience.

Well if that's all you're after, either myself or sturgio would be happy to show you how it's done. Everyone has their own way/equipment, but it the same process.

Hey Khris, just saw an off road race truck on display at the south point. Notice the camber is way in at the top on the front. Is it because under throttle they squat enough to level out the camber or is it that they are planning on lots of air time and expect it to droop while airborne? Just curious.

Did the truck sit fairly low to the ground with the tires almost tucking in the fenders kinda like this?






Or was it sitting taller with more clearance in the wheel wells like...

For reference, the truck above is probably on 33-35" tires where the truck below is probably on 39" tires?






If it was sitting lower, those are short course trucks and the heavy camber helps a ton with cornering. When they're on the gas the truck will lift up a little which will help the camber but when they dive into a corner that outside tire will naturally roll over and as it rolls it actually creates a flat contact patch on the ground instead of just riding on the outter edge of the tire. I think you see that in dirt oval cars also but they only turn one direction where these guys setup for both left and right obviously.

Now if it was sitting taller like the bottom one that's a desert truck and if the camber was all goofy at ride height, something was probably broke.
