Not that I needed another reason to drink beer, but thought this was interesting.........:D Cheers:

JOHANNESBURG, July 8 (Reuters) - South Africa's Treasury is proposing a 20 percent tax on sugar-sweetened beverages in a bid to curb consumption of such products and reduce obesity, it said on Friday. :D Cool Drink:

Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said in February that the government was proposing a new sugar tax from April of 2017.

I'll bet the sugar cane growers are jumping up and down for joy over this.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
