    You would have problems with the revolver in this area. Only one chamber at a time is permitted to be loaded at a time, due to a stupid accident by a pilgrim a few years ago. Managed to shoot himself putting the gun in a shoulder holster.

    I was asked a question a year ago, and have researched it ever since. Apparently it doesn't exist, but thought I would ask here. Has anyone ever heard of "leftover bacon"?

    Dillon burned me back 30+yrs ago when they 1ST brought out the 450 press in a GUNS AND AMMO ad. I had problems with the primer feed using WINCHESTER Small Pistol Primers. I called & was told the fix was NOT TO USE WINCHESTER Primers. THEY'RE...

    Walks replied to a thread Lyman spartan in Reloading Equipment
    I believe LYMAN style sells the complete primer arm assembly. At least I've seen them on flea-bay in new packaging. Primer Catcher's are scarce as hen's teeth. And about as expensive. The handles are screw in. I don't know of any other handle...

    Gun companies are hit up all the time for things like this. As much as they may wish to supply them, supply, demand, and the time to send them out is prohibitive.

    I started grinding corn for corn cakes years ago. Much better having corn cakes than regular pancakes. You don't feel as full, and they stick with you better.

    I have 3 old 2cav Lee molds my Dad bought at a gun show 30yrs ago. He gave then to me to start casting bullets for COWBOY SHOOTING. I've cast thousands of bullets from them. I used 2-stroke motor oil on the alignment "pins/cuts" and on the bottom...

    I've never considered it a problem. I use my 46yr old SPARTAN as a secondary press & I size/decap on it. Use it sometimes with the Lee bullet dies. Just FLIP the handle around to raise the ram on the upstroke. Unbolt the press, reboot it upside...

    My first loading experience was priming. 38SPL cases with a 310 tong tool, I was 4yrs old. It made me feel like I was really reloading, better then just hauling/hanging on the old LYMAN Comet' press's handle. Even today I still use the sizer dies...

    If you are shooting bench rest, the ultra tight loads MIGHT help. For off hand shooting, most people can't hold well enough to take advantage of the accuracy given with an easily loaded patch and ball. My guns load easy, and if I can hold steady,...
