    2020 is shaping into a big and good year so far ! Took possession of my first house, got engaged, have a little one on the way and new tools, bench and hoping firearm as well!!

    got my new bench set up yesterday, my new trimmer showed up and the gem pro 300 I can finally get behind and play with!!

    I’ll should be receiving my new micrometer here in a day or two, my new 5700 kestrel by Wednesday or Thursday I believe and then with high hopes the lady to be will let me acquire a new build. Just deciding weather or not to do just a new barrel for a caliber swap (22creed) or a tikka build (270. Wsm fast twist for the 170’s and or a 25 saum For 131’s) Decisions decisions I guess.

    Nice. With your new GemPro-300, experiment with and without using TARE each time. I had two and one was better if I did, with the other it didn't matter. Also like any scale it needs to be 100% level every time you use it. And whenever you set the pan on, do it like like a feather. If you bump it, the readings will probably be off some. Almost always, it will read +/- .02 grains.

    Nice and neat unlike me. If you ever so jerry Miculek standing in front of his bullet rack you would get the picture only more disorganized.

    Little change in plans. From the beginning I’ve wanted a terminus but thought the Curtis was so close i was basically there. Well it’s been eating me inside so I sold the Curtis and ordered a Zeus!!
