    Anyone ever vacumed the area around the reloading bench. Taken the contents of the vacumn and put it in a fire pit then thrown a match at it?

    No bordum here.
    Why in the heck would someone want to mount a opossum? LOL

    I would be able to make an instant swimming pool in the fir pit area if I vacuumed up my reloading area and lit it on fire. Nobody would survive that blast...lol

    So that was an epic failure.....every time I threw a match, it went out.....no idea why it didn't flash up .....Im assuming too much dirt mixed and not enough fluff to create a flame or something to burn.

    You would have to be awful messy to get it to go poof.

    I have spilled a lot of powder in my day and usually just use a desk brush to clean it up and even then it usually doesn't amount to very much powder. Now if you pilled it up into a small pile and lit it you would get a small reaction.

    Yeah not really sure what I was thinking there....don't spill a ton but just assumed after 10 years there would be enough to do something. Oh well.

    I only give my bench a real cleaning once a year and even then I doubt that there is more than a tablespoon worth of powder on it. And that is after dumping a few reloads onto it. But then I usually try and clean up the bigger messes before I go any further.

    On to the subject, I don't have time to get bored. I have been hunting big game every month since last August and just finished up my last hunt last week down in Arizona. Now it is time to do some research and start applying for this upcoming fall hunts and get some reloading done. Then once it warms up a little I'll be down at my shooting range testing out new and old loads. I also need to remount a scope onto my .25-06 and get it sighted back in.

    Sometimes I wonder how I did all of this when I was working for a living. But being retired is a very fun occupation.

    I agree with JimP on the retired part. I've been plowing snow or working on my plow truck for most of the week, but still found time for a couple shop projects. Will be headed out for a day of snowmobiling, and may once again attempt to find the way thru "The 100 Mile Swamp." Tim...a bunch of us made our annual sledding trip around Island Park, ID. Moderate snow, but the avalanche danger was extreme there...be careful my friend.
