    There’s a little picture of a tree in the toolbar of the reply box. Hit it and you’ll be able to load pics directly from your computer or mobile device. Also.....interested in a gallery type load for these.....

    In the 'Reply' window, third from the right is a little picture frame icon.
    Click it, and you get a pop-up, asking you where you want to get the picture from, your computer or the internet.
    Click whichever is appropriate, and click 'browse' from your computer, or paste in the link if the pic is already online.
    Once it is selected, under the browse button it says 'upload picture' click that and it will now say [ attach=config]then a number [end attach]

    Your picture is now on the interwebs, hosted by GOC.
    Better than photobucket, as GOC isn't going to suddenly ask you to pay to see your own pictures.

    The clever reloading meme that's only partially correct. Reloading is the only option for an 8 x 58R.
    Expensive brass that. $102.95Cdn. per 20 for Bertram brass at TradeEx. When they have any. Special order only dies from RCBS at $151.95US. OUCH.

    I still can't post pics. Might be my PC.

    I paid $80 US for my dies (new) and waisted $30 on a set of forming dies. Not needed. One single pass through the dies and ready to go.
    I did try Bertram brass and waisted my money. Every Bertram brass case spit at the neck and shoulder. I am reforming 45-70 and no problems. Its a bit short but works just fine. I have reformed some 45-90 brass and there is no differance in accuracy between the two. So I will stick with the Starline 45-70 brass.

    Yes, that worked for me.
    That's a good bit of data there, thanks!
