    Discovered what it was tonight. Tiny brass shavings from a DULL chamfer/deburr tool left were being dislodged into some of the cases by the expander die, before going up into the powder measure. Used a new chamfer/deburr tool on 50 cases,...

    tomme boy has it right. Most people slam any kind of brass thru a PROGRESSIVE. All they do is clean and barely sort to get rid of the stray 380. I keep my brass in lots/boxes of 50 or 100. Sorted by headstamp, never mixed. Checked for length. I...

    Hello OldBearHair, That is a good test also. You would have had to heat the blade and coating very hot to set coating. Before I was making coatings for cast, I was making a coating that would be used by industry. Some of these, required to have...

    Extractor's mostly, sometimes the lifter jammed, or even broke off completely. Sometimes the barrel wouldn't reseat after being removed. Had one that the buttstock split 6 inches from the tang. And more broken off safeties then I could count.

    If no 2400 is available, then try 4227. WW296/H110 is good too, but I always got a bit of Leading when pushing plain-based bullets at MAX. I heard way back, that WW296/H110 burned exceptionally hot, and that caused the Leading with...
