    I was processing some .243 brass for my little nephew's Christmas present (100 rounds of ammo) when I discovered that I could run the aeraetor spike on my pipe tool through the primer flash hole to make sure it was nice and clear and it fit just PERFECTLY... AND you can get them for like 2 dollars at just about any pipe shop (that's tobacco pipes before anyone goes down the wrong thought path).

    Did you load any of those 243's as 223? :whistling:

    You can steal paperclips from the school librarian for free... they work too. Cool, huh?

    Nope... no 223 projectiles in my 243 rounds... LOL I even took them completely OFF the temporary bench just to be safe since I'm pretty heavily medicated these days.

    I didn't have any paperclips, Jack, but I already had the pipe tamper :p

    I just finished writing, "I will not take school stationary." 100 times on the chalkboard because of you. :steamed:

    Sorry Lab, there was a thread a few days ago about someone loading 243 brass for 223. I was just goofing on that, not you.
