    As a matter of fact, I just got it screwed together. It's able to be shot right now. There were some blemishes on the butplate (mahogany) so I am refinishing it. I'm having the veins in my left leg lazered this Friday, and the doctor says I am...

    I'll be curious to see your results with those powders. I started with Reloader 17 thinking the slow burn rate might be good for "an easy launch". I wasn't thrilled so back pedalled to Reloader 15, 8208XBR, Benchmark, and Reloader 7 trying to find...

    My NOE 225-70s have been loaded exclusively to function through magazines, so are seated as long as possible (2.255-2.260"). These have functioned perfectly through my Stag 5.56 with Pmags. I chose to buy the NOE vs the ACE knowing full well...

    We did? I mean yeah! We did! LOL! To be perfectly frank, at this point we are swimming in custom mold makers who will create you a custom work of art that will drop perfectly round boolits that fit your rifle perfectly if you provide a pound...

    Right, it was supposed to be good for all the 358's, but I never actually pulled the trigger on it. If you would like, send me a chamber slug of your rifle, and I'll tell you what to change and where so that you get perfect fit?

    No. I dry sanded between coats, and just kept going till I got what I wanted. I followed a process for applying the finish I learned from a guitar maker who preferred Truoil to polyurethane when using dark tonewoods. It produces a finish that can't...

    Larry, I get the RPMTH. Its just how fast you can spin with a certain load (brass, primer, powder, alloy, boolit, lube etc etc etc.) No problem. I would like you to expound on "sloppy reloading techniques". In your opinion, what are the main...

    After a while you get to where you know most of the common mold designs by heart, but it's nearly impossible to remember all of them. Often I recognize the size and the basic design right off the bat, but I need details quick when looking at a for...

    You're probably pretty close and a little on the conservative side there Eutectic. I punched that load into quickload and got an estimated pressure of 172,212 PSI. You have to figure that some of that probably didn't burn and got blown out the...

    Honestly, I have to agree with you here. However, as a person who could potentially be held liable for any mistake that might be made by a client in his choice of rifle, I find myself being more and more biased against anything that sounds shady...

Biography:
I cast my first boolits before the age of 10 with a pot in the fireplace, ladle, and Colt 1860 Army mould. I shot my first flintlock and started reloading before I was 15, and that was some 40 years ago. I've shot rifle and handgun competitively for more than 30 years and still hold a national record. I've never been afraid to share my loading data or techniques as I consider it a challenge to others to surpass my results. I'm not a braggart, but rather feel our society is spiraling into an abyss due to lack of education and lack of ambition to succeed on one's own.
