    Flying with camping equipment for vacation

    Just passed through security with four reels in my carry on, but not to say everyone would be so lucky... One option would be to pack the spool if you could?

    Flying with camping equipment for vacation

    Other option is to carry your poles as a carry on. Done it before, use a pvc tube and make sure it will fit in the overhead bins. But flight attendants are super nice and usually will put it in the closet for you if you ask ... I've even had them comment that they were glad I had them in a tube...

    Career Advice

    This portion right here speaks volumes to me personally. I work at a mid sized engineering firm (300 people) and find motivating to make someone else more money difficult... We're an esop now, which in theory should make it easier to motivate since I get a cut of the pie now, but out of the...

    Getting Jazzed up

    I'd call it a seagull, but there is probably a more accurate term for it. Would have been much cooler with a duck!

    Getting Jazzed up

    Saturday is the day I am heading back to Alaska for a few weeks worth of fishing for reds... Looks like the run is going to be strong this year! https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/sf/EONR/index.cfm?ADFG=region.NR&Year=2019&NRID=2759&fbclid=IwAR0wSpWLoOop5s8E1YoRidTSBz6LZQ8B-9x5--VGEwnFNUo3alJLq63dJgM...

    Alaska via ship or land???

    Having lived there I would highly recommend against going the cruise direction, but I know for a lot of people that is an easy choice since they don't really have to plan anything, the cruise ship has it all laid out for them. If you fly, then rent an RV in Anchorage, you can drive anywhere you...

    Lowest end, actually bare min according to my reloading guide.

    Talked with Weatherby, they didn't think it would be a bad chamber with the factory ammo not having the issue, but they instructed me to bring it into an authorized gun smith (in this case Scheels) and have them look it over.

    Bring it into a gun smith you think? I'm think I should give weatherby a call about it and see if they have any thoughts... Probably should have called them a while ago, but oh well.

    Yes, tried just neck sizing once with the same sticky bolt as with FL

    Never annealed, and most if not all the brass I'm using is once fired factory ammo, once I reload it we start getting the sticky bolt... Also I doubt I have anything to really measure my chamber accurately...

    Too soft of brass expanding in the chamber? I mean all brass will expand to some extent, but why my reloaded ammo is having the issue is truly the question here

    Took your advice, see photo below, shell on the left is reloaded, right in factory. Cycled both of the half a dozen times each. I also measured each at that scuffed point by the base,. 0.470 for the reloaded and 0.468 for the factory.

    Alright, I finally got my new set of dies from RCBS in the mail. Here were the results of shooting this morning. The bolt isn't nearly as sticky as before with my Lee dies, but they are still stickier than the factory ammo... I tested it two ways, first with the RCBS dies both full length...
