    Go to your local plumbing supply or shop and ask for some 1/2" OD copper refrigeration tubing, M or L. They also should have sweat caps for 1/2" OD copper pipe.

    Hey CG I still have time to bring up the count :) As far as quality with the Shiloh's, it's tops as well as their warranty. I stoped four times to place an order with C-Sharps and four times I walked out of the door shaking my head and drove 200...

    A few years back I talked to Rick Kalynuik of KAL tool and die about getting into making dies to fit the Walnut Hill Swage press and he was interested. But he had some health problems since so I don't know if he ever went into that line. He makes a...

    I think you guys using the reloading press swage dies would use a RCBS Big Max A-4 press or even the C&H three station H press and use the center die holder for doing this type of work. The Big Max is one super press I got on for mostly forming...

    Most of those sewer pipe bores was caused more by the mercuric priming compound than the black powder. Alsoback in that time mercury as in common use for cleaning lead out of the bore.

    I have two .16 ROT .40's one .40-70 and a .40-65 and one 14 ROT .40-65 and the 14 is outperforming the 16's with the same bullets from 1.4" too 1.5" long.

    Even if a bullet eccentric and you run it through a sizing die to make it concentric it will still be out of balance. Shoot the eccentric bullet as it is. It will be concentric when it leaves the bore. :)

    Your better off getting a proper sized mould. You can't compress lead, all you can do is make it flow in a couple directions pushing it through a die.

    There a lot of die hard Swiss users and it is/was/? a good powder. I use it but with the last case I shot up a couple weeks ago I have to see some good reports in the future before I buy another case. I have worked some very good loads using the OE...

    Nah, it don't bother me in the least with what you want to use. I tried it my self and I didn't like my cases getting edged with the green stuff that builds up. Down the bore is not a problem, salt or no salt because I clean my rifle when I get...
