    Those of you who visit here regularly know that I love to make old things into new things (I think it's called repurposing). I'm also interested in trying new things (at least to me). Here is my latest experiment. I've been reloading since 1967 and I have never cleaned any old brass! I recently purchased a Hornady 2L Sonic Cleaner as I'm getting more serious about reloading in some quantity. I am really impressed with this little cleaner.

    It isn't going to polish the brass to a shiny finish like a tumbler, but for my purposes it works quite well! I was interested in something that would clean the brass so I didn't mess up my dies, and for that it works quite well. I have thus far cleaned over 600 cases of various calibers and I am very satisfied. Here is a picture of the 80 223 cases that I ran through the cleaner for 20 minutes. I had decapped all the brass with a universal decapping die before cleaning. Now I'm ready to size and reload in earnest.

    Hey, it's something to do when the temperature here in our part of Texas was 75 yesterday (Sunday) and today the high was 35. It's Texas, if you can't stand the summers, you don't deserve the winters! I guess I griped too much about the 100 degree days last summer Y'all take care, 'cause I really do care! John

    I ask for all who visit here to please go to the prayer forum and put in a word for MO member Survivor99 whose wife is suffering from cancer. Ron and his wife need our prayers for comfort, understanding, and healing if it is God's will! Thanks friends. John

    While it is so dry here in our part of the Texas Hill Country that even the weeds are not growing very well, the irises are blooming beautifully! These pictures were taken on April 10th -- today we have over 50 blooms with a lot more to come!IrisMulti.jpgIrisPurple.jpg I still haven't figured out how to post pics exactly right since I've used photobucket for a long time and it's not working right for me any more! Y'all stay well because I care! John

    More snow and rain today. On my daily jog out to the highway and back I saw a old fella flaot in a big hand crafted wooden boat, real nice boat too!, I hollared Howdy but I don't think he heard me with all them animals making so much noise!! Then it hit me maybe I should buy some flood insurance!

    I was hoping this thread would pop back up pretty soon, been wondering how things were progressing after all that goofy spring/winter (sprinter?) weather you were having. Farther north we're calling it The Winter That Wouldn't Die, but now that April's here we have grass greening up and trees budding out all over, so I guess we're finally done. How bad was the winter? Record snowfalls, a couple weeks in the teens or below, and I went six months without shooting a rifle...........that's serious!

    Happily, my club range is open again, everything has been repaved (after all the ice pretty well destroyed the roads!) and we're ready to go make some noise.

    So how's Mrs. PJABI? I think we need some shots of her outshooting you with her 1894C.

    We care, too!

    Glad to see the beauty of spring popping up in Texas. Those Irises are some pretty flowers
