    I just went out to check my mold and it does have only one wide grease groove. I guess it is my memory. I think my Lee 44 mold has two grease grooves.

    I am sure it is an older style Keith. I used to have one and may still have somewhere. My newer one has a crimp grove and two grease groves.

    I must be missing something, All I see is a Keith bullet that looks like it came from a Ideal or Lyman mold. I don't feel any pointed problem. Do you have a question? Did you make a previous post that I missed?

    Back a few years ago my brother shot a small 2 point (western count) mully with a 223 Thompson Contender rifle with a scope, at some what over a 100 yds. It was a shot through the spine about 10" below the neck.

    I load one round at a time and have tried both ways with little difference in time. My main reason is because I frequently am interrupted by my wife and no matter when that is in a loading session, I have that number of rounds ready to shoot, If...

    A Squib is a low velocity load with very light report. If you are asking what it takes to get a bullet stuck in the barrel, that would depend on barrel lengthy and powder type and how much you load of it. I have loaded as little as 3 grains of ...

    Picked this one up at an auction with a bunch of others. I think it may have cast a few but it's hard to tell if it's new or not. Free to your door.

    Sometimes we need special things for special guns. I have a revolver in 32 S&W long that has a .312 barrel and .321 throats. .321 boolits loaded in a 32 S&W case won't fit in the cylinders but a .321 heeled bullet works fairly well. I made a die for...

    I use the top punch to push the I pin down in the H die as far as it will go then insert the boolit and push it in the H die as far as you can with your fingers. Normally they will go in far enough to align properly.

    I made my first 7.62x25 from 38spl. You have to lathe off the rim and cut a new extractor, shorten and trim. You really don't want to loose those. I made a bit that I could just turn off the rim and then run straight in for the extractor groove....
