    I really don't know what I've done wrong in my life to deserve such shabby treatment and bad fortune in my twilight years... alright, my close to midnight years.

    I served my country with honor, I wasn't very good at it but it was honorable non-the-less. I protected helpless citizens against crime and/or evil, risking life and limb at speeds approaching 120 mph whilst trying to get to the donut shop for the first warm delicacies of the early morn. In short, I've tried to lead a good life.

    What is my reward for all this self-sacrifice? Emotional torment! After the unfortunate incident with Zombie Steve attempting to abscond with the fruits of my life's labor I managed to calm myself through the consumption of 12 year old scotch and a fine cigar. As I retired for the evening I laid my head back secure in the knowledge that the morning sun would bring a better day.

    Once again my hopes for a sliver of justice have been dashed upon the rocks of despair. Arising from my nest of slumber I discovered that Zombie Stevie had not only bonded out of jail but had broken into my abode in the middle of the night and rested his weary body upon my couch. To say that I would have been more pleased to have found one of my ex-wives trying to steal my guns would be a gross understatement.

    I am now faced with the ultimate dilemma. He has informed me that I have a choice, either spend the day giving him a casting lesson or he will claim illegal immigrant status and live in my home for free forever.

    I wish I'd never learned how to spell GUN much less started buying them :crying: (This newb crap is way overrated.)

    It was my intial intent to remind you of the 8th ammendment based on your post line, but after reading your story of woe, I admit to reconsidering my position. Have you considered using coloring to turn the molten lead blue to resemble Kool-aid?

    Jack has snared another one in his lair. We should all pray for Steve if you believe in a God.

    Are we to infer that Jack has a thing for "Steve"s?

    Colorado is lousy with Steves in the shooting world. Jack is having another "Steve" do some work on his Kimber. Or at least thats the story as I know it.

    Please Lord, deliver me from this evil! So far Zombie Steve broke a decapping pin on a .223 case then lost a pin while opening a new pack to replace it. (At $63 a piece his bill is starting to add up.)

    He cast around 6 or 7 hundred 200 grain SWC's, (didn't burn the house down) then I moved him over to the Star sizer. After I got him rolling on that I left the room to have a cigarette... returned a few minutes later to find that he had decided to 'adjust' the machine. Have no idea what he did, no loader in the history of the world would have had any idea what he did. Took the better part of an hour to straighten it out.

    He finally managed to get 'em done, (after wasting a whole stick of lube) and moved him over to a LNL w/casefeeder. Spent a few minutes loading rounds and showing him how the machine worked. Asked if he understood and although his voice said yes the totally dumbfounded look on his face caused me more than a bit of concern. Unfortunately my concerns turned out to be justified.

    Within ten minutes he had managed to totally destroy the primer shuttle slide, (actually snapped half of it off), bent and rendered useless the primer cam rod and kinked a shell retainer spring.

    After fixing and or replacing parts I once again attempted to show him the correct operation of the press. As we speak he is in there cranking out rounds... I couldn't stand to watch.

    Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I'd miss Little Stevie. :crying:

    Me: "Jack, no wax is getting in the grooves, but just about everywhere else."
    Jack: "What the f? What the f did you do?"
    Me: "Nothing. Sat down and started doing what you showed me."
    Jack: "Get the f out of the f'n way." (adjusts every moving part on the star sizer) 20 minutes later - "See - it f'n works!"



    Jack: "I never tried these Wolf primers on my LnL, but here you go." (LnL breaks). "What the f did you f'n do?"

    Me: "Nothing. Sat down and started doing what you showed me."

    Jack: "It f'n worked when I was loading with those CCI primers not two days ago! F!"

    Broke the shuttle and bent the cam rod? I trained a gorilla (or was it guerilla?) to do my loading and even he knows it isn't an operation of brute strength. What type of training are you providing for your zombie apprentice? You must remember that zombies, much like gorillas, have limited brain function and absolutely no higher brain function. Place the bullet, pull the handle smoothly, push the handle smoothly. So easy even a gorilla or guerilla can do it, *caution* zombies however seem to lack the ability to properly complete three sequential tasks.

    That was because he was loading on a Dillon and not an inferior LNL.:whistling::tongueout:
