    using $15. or $20. calipers will vary several thousands from caliper to caliper measuring drill shanks, that is more than any spring back a hard bullet will have. I swage also and I have never seen the diameter change with different lead or lead...

    John, That is a good link to read, especially using smokeless in the TD's I seen one in worse conditions here at our range with a load of 5744. That is one wale of a group shot with a TD.

    Keith it's hard to tap threads straight using a T handle. I just chuck a bottom tap in the drill press and turn the chuck by hand and holding slight pressure down.

    Gellot, Shooting good groups on paper can be established a lot easier with good conditions while working up loads with a new rifle or powder types. Usually If I want to see what the rifle or load is capable of I pick the conditions that are calm...

    It makes a difference with the core. Pure lead in a rimfire case can give you a problem. I swaged some with 50/50 1/8" wire solder for a core and used a load of 36 grains of IMR 4320 and all I saw was vapor trails and no holes on the paper. They...

    Sounds like your on the way Keith. Seating them in with a cartridge seating tool about three times would have loosed't them up too, but that's a pain in the neck. I have cut extractor slots using a file and dremel tool :)

    Keith if anything that you might have a problem with is with the die you made with the chamber reamer. I been down this path with my reamers. There is too much spring back when you form the cases and they will be a very tight fit in the chamber....

    That is something you really should work out yourself. Most of my rifles will hit point of aim from a clean dry barrel that a clean dry patch cleaned out before leaving home. Leaving oil in the bore the first shot will wander out. Take that rifle...

    Our local Farmers Elevator used to sell the powder scooped from kegs and put in a paper bag back in the 50's as well as blasting powder in kegs for blowing stumps and splitting logs. What ever happen to those days when a 12 year old kid could buy...

    Both bore and groove diameters or slightly under bore diameter will shoot well. With my .45/325 I used to load groove diameter patched mainly to use up powder room because the 3 1/4" case is more than needed for powder and it shot very good. I...

    Gallot. When I see an oblique string like you shot with this test load I see a lot of potential in it. I call that group, fat fingering, not having a good control of the rifle. That low vertical is a good start. When they cut shot by shot like I...

    Walks I don't vibrate the case with the powder in it. I have a vibration mounted on the shelf the powder drop is mounted on. I just lift the handle again after I make a drop and let it settle in the powder drop while I put the wad in and compress it...

    This question comes up quite often and you will get the answers from people that use a drop to be the best no matter what the brand is. They all in my opinion, all have their fault in one way or another. I been putting black powder in cases since...
