    I sit down at my picnic table on my covered patio. With either the RCBS Pro-Melt or Lyman Mag-20 at just below eye level. No Problem seeing the spout. Have a Lee 10lb that I used to use for pure lead, had no problem seeing that that either. Guess...

    I now understand. Many have seen HI-TEK coatings, which are powders. HI-TEK is not for use as powder coatings, and as you said, it has to be mixed into Acetone to coat. To answer your question, I have not had any reports from shooters that had...

    Congrats on joining the Fraternity. Lee has some great stuff at learner prices. But if I had to depend on one of their scales. I'd give up reloading after 60yrs+. You can skimp on some things but never a scale. I have 2 beam scales; a...

    My experience with lee has been mostly poor. In particular the crimp dies. I bought a fcd almost 20yrs ago on a rather insistent recommendation of a Fellow Cowboy Shooter. For .44-40; it worked like garbage. I soon discovered I had a .44mag die...

    As a kid I learned the only rifle rounds to be crimped were those shot in a Garand, M1 Carbine, or similar auto loading rifle. And Lever Action rifle. Case Neck tension held bullets in w/o any crimp. Still do it that way. Revolver ammo is roll...

    I have a M1895CB from the first year of Production, and a M1894CB from first year of Production. Both are smooth actions with never a problem. The M1894CB functioned with everything and has had at least 15,000 rds thru it. The only modification...

    Firing several hundred rounds in a scandium frame .357Mag, seems like an exercise in masochism. I fired a M60 in .357Mag when they first came out. Actually fired 2 rounds. Never again.

    Hi Kevin C You have identified the problem as highlighted in red.. It is well advertised, that coating stops heat transfer. I bet, the coating on outside, is probably higher in temperature above 40-50C. That is why it goes green. Radiant heat, ...
