Uh huh huh huh .... he said chainsaw

Lost a tree in my front yard in the recent glueballwarminginducedarmageddon in CA.

Have had a nice little 18" Homelite saw for years. But needed a bigger one for this job. Got a Stihl 25". YEAH!!!

Machine guns in brown boxes, tied up with string.
These are a few of my favorite things.

Re: Weight sorting rifle brass

My understanding is that weight sorting is a first order approximation of sorting by capacity and neck thickness. I can tell you from personal experience that the latter two *definitely* matter.
