    WALLNUTT replied to a thread 32 40 in Case Forming / Re-forming
    Annealing is the way for me. I started tonight after weight sorting 250 and coming up with around 140. I annealed all 140 and began sizing. After annealing the cases size down with no losses yet having done about 50 so far. I'm using the short cases...

    I received my Bag Balm in the mail today. I'll see how it works.

    Neck thickness won't be an issue as I will breach seating bullets in a single shot. Things went smooth with one pass after annealing. New ground for me. Loading ammo for 35 years and the first time I've annealed and/or reformed brass.

    WALLNUTT replied to a thread 32 40 in Case Forming / Re-forming
    Well, don't think I'll be buying preformed cases after all. I had never annealed any cases before, so thought there might be some black magic involved. I annealed a couple of 38 55 cases and ran them into a FL 32 40 die. Presto 32 40 cases. I did a...

    WALLNUTT replied to a thread 32 40 in Case Forming / Re-forming
    I only need 100 matched cases so I probably need to start with about 150. they should last a long time as they will never be resized. I just ordered some Bag Balm. Even if it doesn't help with case forming, my hands get chapped in the winter. If...

    No, I don't fill the case but I am after accuracy and want to cover all bases. I will try a few reformed 30 30s and see what happens.

    I have not annealed but thought (by mistake?) it would not be necessary with unfired brass. I have successfully reformed 30 30 but they are quite a bit shorter than wanted.

    i have tried to convert Starline 38 55 brass to 32 40 without success. Everyone says it's easy but I get a crease in the case each time. I have tried fired cases and brand new with the same results. Any tips on what I'm doing wrong?

    WALLNUTT replied to a thread Mold handles in Casting Equipment
    I drill and pin all of my handles through the ferrule (w/ epoxy) regardless of the brand. LEE six cavities do fit NOE molds well.

    Put the first bullet in the backstop where it won't bother you and then shoot all you want. If you are going to hunt sight in the first shot and don't worry about the rest. If you don't hit a deer with the first shot you won't stand much of a chance...

    I love my 30 30 Win 94 rebored to 38 55. It shot good as a 30 30 but better as 38 55 and just plain fun.
