    If you don't already know, you'll have the best results if you use Cheddite primers. Most of the other brands "mushroom" a little out the back when they're fired, causing the cylinder to jam.

    That's a good price. The rules seem sketchy, but shipping powder and primers is supposed to incur an additional $20 hazardous materials shipping fee. If they don't charge it that's great. But nearly...

    Ask around your area for someone that sells reloading supplies. Maybe your local gun club. There are people who shoot an incredible amount of shells and buy in bulk for better prices. You might need...

    The 3" are good for marks thrown into relatively shallow water too. The 2" bumpers sometimes make it to the bottom of the pond and stick in the mud on the bottom, or if there's a lot of vegetation on...

    I've used Gorilla glue to glue the bumpers. It worked good.

    Keep the glue bottle away from your dogs, someone's dog locally ate a bottle of it and it hardened in the dogs stomach. Local vet made...

    White bumpers and actually shorten the distance to 75 yards. Have the thrower throw the bumper really far. Mostly flat throws.

    As to why eminently qualified judges aren't being asked to judge, I have no idea.
    Personally I think by and large the people who are asked to judge, honestly try to do their best.

    I guess if the "best judges" don't judge, but sit back and bemoan how bad the FT judging is, we are condemned to making do with less than adequate judges.

    I don't own one but have looked at them. They're heavy, normal sized on the outside, but pretty small on the inside with the thicker insulation.

    If you position yourself a little to the right or left in front of the dog it will help him to learn which way to turn on the back casts. Just a step.

    I've noticed EE isn't "real random." If EE gives you a low number and the Dow is low for several trials in a row, it's tough.

    I think it's worded that you can't skip placements. Not that 1st and 2nd must be awarded. Ie. if 1 placement is given if must be a 1st. If 2 are given they must be 1st and 2nd. etc.

    If DelBay had to go to $100 they'll all be at $100 and still just breaking even. Bring in a couple of out of town judges and check the cost. Easily $300-$400 driving or flying.

    I looked at the site. The warranty stuff may be old information. Elsewhere it talks about the lifetime warranty, with no mention of the extra charge.
