A rifle would have had to have been declared, and would have had to have some sort of insurance on it I'd think. I never ship one without it, but then I don't use Fedex either.

I do the same. Used FedEx once and they messed up the pickup, never used them since.

My reply would be 'Your company accepted the responsibility for a timely and safe delivery. Since you violated that responsibility, please remit a check in the amount of XXXX payable to (insert name here) along with a letter absolving me of any repercussions due to your mishandling of this controlled item."

Why did you decide to replace the .45 with a 9mm?

Someone I know had it for sale along with 9 mags at a good price.

Ammo costs was not a problem as I reload plus I have 1000's of rds. on hand for both 9 and .45.

The 995 is smaller and lighter than the 4595 and I like it.
I may still get another 4595 . I am trying to decide now.

So Ken, tell us about what you reload and on what equipment...
I've got a Dillon 550b and reload most pistol rounds. 9mm, 10mm, .38 spl, .357 mag, .40, and .45.
Have complete toolheads for all so it's just switching a shellplate and toolhead to change calibers.

Reloading if fun - great therapy too as Mo has said once or twice. :great:

Image

Image

Image

Image

45 ACP - Shot'em all up!! (-:
Shooting is also good therapy for a guy!! :great:
I haven't done either for a while - - it's been way too long actually.... )-:

Image

I reload the 25 ACP too - 1 grain of powder and I found some cheap bullets...
Reloading the 25 is cheaper than what a 22 shell costs!! (-:

Image

Cheap pistols are fun and cheap to shoot.
Sorry about the fat hands... (-:

Image

I also reload the .223 and .308 calibers.
I put an LED light kit on my progressive press to make it easier
to see everything - especially the powder level in the case. (-:

You can see that my color of press is beautiful RED color... :great:

Image

Just like Ex said in his post - A shell plate and a turret (next picture) for each caliber makes caliber changes pretty easy!!

Image

And a set of dies is needed - And a a powder measure for each caliber makes it easier and faster too. (-:

Image

In the below picture, you can see I use that round cardboard piece that's left after you use up a roll of 2" tape
to store the turret, powder measure and shell plate for each caliber - I put the shell plate on top of the turret.
What I like about that is the price - Free!! And they work perfectly - doesn't get better than that!! :D

Image

So there you go - Whenever "Reloading" gets mentioned, everybody goes nuts!!
OK - Well - Not everybody - But I do a little!! (-:

It surprised me that FedEx misdelivered a firearm. A couple years ago I was waiting for a handheld computer that had been repaired. I got a message on my phone that said the package was undeliverable because nobody was home. I was pissed. I was sitting in a chair waiting for it. I had to drive to Madison WI to retrieve it in person. When I got there they made copies of my ID and took my picture. Then I had to walk to a second location where they checked my ID against the picture they took at the first location. It was like I was trying to get into the Pentagon. After I got in I yelled at them for wasting my time and gas because I was at the address and their driver never showed. I'm now on file for them to call first before attempting delivery. When I asked about all the "Fort Knox" security, the supervisor said it's required because they work closely with the Department of Homeland security. I don't think I'd try scamming them about not receiving a gun, then parting it out. I'm sure they've seen it before. I'm surprised they didn't scan my retina.

No matter to me that the shipper is responsible for the lost/stolen firearm.
The screw up was totally FedEx's fault.
Delivered a firearm miles from where it was supposed to go , to an address that was not even close to the same street name and even a different zip code.
Did not require an I.D. to sign for the firearm and no telling if the receiver could even own a firearm by law.
Someone's butt should go to jail for this.
The ATF is hell on FFL holders and should be the same way on carriers that lose/steal firearms.

If the shipper didn't follow the usual protocol on shipping a firearm, then they SHOULD be held accountable. Shipping without insurance or notifying the shipper that it was indeed a firearm, trying to get by on the cheap side, and got caught at it.

No matter what the shipper declared , FedEx is the one that screwed up.
