    A rifle would not be my choice especially over a door. If one would bust through you would never reach it. Also if you have close neighbors a rifle would pass through your interior wall and the neighbors as well. I short leagle length barreled shot...

    They are a handy press that take up little room on the bench and they work just fine for reworking a bullet ogive like changing it from a semi wad cutter to a round nose. Just fill the lube grooves with a solid lube and run it through the press. The...

    The swage o matic press has some weak points. The nose form die will split trying to form a bullet to long if you don't get the nose form punch fully supported by the die body. The toggle link is another weak point when you get the alloy too hard....

    Brent I found this one at Scheels down the road from you. My drop tubes are nothing fancy, Just a funnel on one end of a 3/8"OD (1/4" ID) type K copper tube with a 5/8" OD x 3/8" OD sweat reducer on the other end. I just set the sweat...

    Brent I have fishing tackle boxes full of dies for bullets the average shooter now days don't use or maybe don't even know what they are looking at as well as making jackets, case draw dies, case base reducing dies. In the past I could not get...

    LOL. The two presses on the right don't get used that much anymore. The brown press on the right gets used for stretching brass with the die that's in it I made for stretching cases from .30-40 into .40-70 cases or as a loading press. The blue swage...

    Joe it's a old one made before what they have now, It's behind the swage presses. That drop drops a charge very consistently with just a couple flicks of the clapper to settle the powder in the drum. I also use a couple 55 Lymans I keep set for a...

    You can make a powder drop drop very consistent charges by adding a muffin fan and cut some blades off for vibration and glued a cover on both sides with 1/16" plywood to eliminate air movement. I use a fan from a computer what went the deep 6 blue...

    I have cut and turned a lot of bullets on a lathe that were light weight but looked good with out flaws on the outside and I have never found a bullet with a clean airspace bubble inside. I always found dross that got poured into the mould. I...

    We had a neighbor that had this problem. What he did was rented a back hoe and dug a 3' wide by 3' deep ditch and filled it with pea gravel and plated petunias in flower pots flush with the gravel. It ended the problem and it looked nice :D It...

    Rob, It makes a difference with the paper I use on how tight I patch my bullets to bore. I mostly use the old Southworth cockle finish 100% cotton onion skin paper it compresses some when pressure is applied to it's surface so I patch one thousand...

    You really can't go with the # weight for thickness. I have 7.5# paper that is as thick as 9# and .0015" thick that has a 8# rating. Loose patched bullets are good for a hunting load where the shot might range 100-200 yards and a soft lead bullet...
