Lee makes a bunch of different die sets. You can get the cheapest set, just has FL sizing and bullet seating, or the 3 die that also has the factory crimp. There's also die sets that use a collet type neck resizer.

I think I'll order one of the Lee universal neck expander, to use with all the weird stuff I reload, rather than get another M die for every caliber.

Slim my mom made it when I was young. Eating it in the mess hall- you judged it against your mom?s :) I occasionally make it here at home and after seeing Kent Rollings video I will be making it today.

Well to be honest after watching some of Kent's video, he ain't the brightest lantern on the wagon tongue.  I am not alone in this opinion.

His video on seasoning should be banned, his method is all wrong and does not season cast iron at all.  His temps are to low, as bad as Martha Stewart's video.

He's either not as good as many think or he let the writers and producers totally take over.

I run  FB dutch oven group which has some of the best talent out there, we have got tired of when someone has a good question, somebody that doesn't know much will instead of letting some in the group answer it, with in 3-5 minutes has posted to go to YouTube and look for a Kent Rollins video on it.

Not happed in a while because I pointed out a couple times that is rude to the membership of the group who have as much or more talent than Kent, like the old TV show with Walter Brennen, not brag, just fact.😉

Present conditions.

He should have gotten some good country sausage instead.  I could recommend him some good places.

I cringe everytime I watch him, he sure makes some things harder than they need to be.

He is the only one I ever seen use two pans like that to make gravy. ::)

Sourdough sinner-mon rolls always go good also.

Funny thing, he is successful at it... makes you wonder who is right. How?s your branding going?

Morning all.

22, wind chill to 4. Have 6 inches of white on the ground. Supposed to be cold through Monday, then warm back up to low 50s next week.

Del, I'm a member of a FB group called Ancestral Cooking in Cast Iron. The guy who runs it restores a lot of mistreated old cast iron. It's pretty neat.

I almost traded my AR rifle for a 6" S&W 27-6.  The original grips had been replaced with plastic hogue grips, and the frame had surface rusted and been refinished (poorly) with cold blue.  So the trade for my ~$400 rifle would have been fair.  But, I decided that my lowly 5.56 would be more practical for me than a 357.  I made a Cabela's run afterwards and picked up some Hornady Frontier 62gr BTHP, which they have been out of stock for 3 months, and some M855 green tip. Also picked up a new ammo can to put it in, since my other one was full.  To top it off, I got a 10% military discount, so total trip cost me $22.

Kid, I would probably cause major hemorrhages, strokes and heart attacks.

This is the big one where Kent, Martha Stewart and most the other video gee whizzes don't agree.

They say it ruins the seasoning and I say BS, they don't know how to season right.  Since I  have never ruined my seasoning that way, itcseems I must be right. 

See you have to put the edible oil/fat on very thin and then heat it up beyond the smoke point of that oil, and burn off all the volatiles till the remains form a tough carbon based polymer. 

We're based science not myth and one is expected to be able explain why or why not things work using science.

Remember your mother and grandma told you the Easter bunny, Santa and the tooth fairy were real so the "they told me so" don't cut it.

If your group says no soap and tells you Chinese made cast iron contains lead because they use scrap, run as fast as you can, same if they all use liners.

Actually I  have 3 groups, the main cooking ones, one on Victorian cooking and a chat group where no politics are allowed.

He started showing up about the late 90?s in Western Horseman Mag. The cowboy chuckwagon comps and other things. He has been competing on many of the food channel competition shows including beat Bobby Flay show. His branding of products have branded as well as Bob Ross-s happy trees. 

I enjoy the Canadian Red Neck Red/Green show also. His is a routine that comes with his tour and a product brand.

Some people think their way is the only way.
