    While waiting for the heater under my Star sizer to heat up I decided to read my copy of the recently delivered Dillon Blue Press.

    If you do not receive it may I suggest you contact Dillon and as to be placed on their mailing list... it is filled with excellent articles, reviews and chock full of outside vendors and manufacturers.

    While browsing the pages of this handy little tome my eyes fell upon an advertisement for a shot timer. Being a compulsive 'toy' hoarder I reached for the phone to order what would soon be the newest addition to my realm of electronic gadgetry when I realized that given my current shooting speed shoving a stick in the ground and creating a sundial would be more appropriate.

    If you'll excuse me, I have some whittling to do. :faint:

    I was just looking at some old ones I found a few days ago and was wondering why I stopped getting them years ago.

    You have to have contact with them in a sale or some other means to get the magazine. You may need to ask for it by calling them up. Or, buy a case gauge, calander, whatever is cheap from them. Then your on the list again for sure.

    Does anyone remember the article about "Coffin Rock"???

    Dillon ran that article and the follow-up article (don't remember the name) several years ago.

    Dillon re-ran the "Coffin Rock" article not-too-long ago.

    I've misplaced that issue.
    Can somebody tell me which issue it was ran in???


    Thanks.

    I don't keep the old ones. The one I do have in the reloading room that I won't throw away is the April 194 issue with Julie Nowlin on the cover. Julie's dad was John Nowlin. He was a friend and build me several comp guns for IPSC in the early 90's.

    PS: You guys won't believe this but I just thumbed through the above issue and the Coffin Rock story was in it!! I believe the reprint was in last Octobers issue. -- G.
