    I can't address how government contractors get by with this. Within actual government agencies you have to have a equal or higher security clearance and most importantly an need to know. Of course inside threats will always find a way to...

    I tried a small experiment about standard vs magnum primers in 45ACP. Both were CCI pistol primers. 10 rounds of each load was fired through 3 different 45s. The loads were all the same except the primers. Brass, powder, powder charge and...

    As usual Larry is spot on with his advice. Both loads of the OP's smokeless loads are recommended trap door loads. In many loadings Smokeless Powder has a softer pressure curve than BD. I used to load for a reenactment group mostly with smokeless...

    The Hornady Headspace Comparator does exactly what it is claimed to do and it does it very well. Hornady calls it a COMPARATOR for a reason. It was not designed as a direct measurement tool unless used in conjunction with a actual standard like a...

    The difference in peoples experiences on this type of stuff always surprised me. Between my 650's and my 1050 I have loaded 80K to 100K of bottleneck cases. Mostly .223 and 308. I do have a vacuum and compressed air at each machine. Never stuck...

    If you are using the Lock-N-LoadŽ Headspace Comparator!/ that is a comparator only unless used in conjunction with an standard such as an actual headspace gauge. Something like the RCBS Case Mic gives...

    I probably have enough 300 WM to trade for the Max brass. I need to get back home to count, but I think I have more than enough.

    Dad had some Herter's that sound like a direct match. That was in 1970. They were purchased in the late 50's or 60's. They didn't perform well on game so they just sat on the shelf until I started shooting/reloading as a kid. I shot about 250 of...

    Can H4831 be safely downloaded to use with cast bullets? If so does it need a filler? This is probably a question for Larry Gibson.

    Hornady One Shot case lube allowed to dry before adding to hopper. When I first started with my 650's I used Dillon lube but that turned into a sticky mess to the point the cases would stick in the feed tube. Switched to the Hornady and never...

    Scott I started with 38 special loads nearly 30 years ago using HP38 and had great success at target load levels in a 6" K frame Smith using 158 swc and 148 hbwc bullets from Speer. In my opinion, HP38 is a fine powder for 38 special
