    Wish you were closer. I lost the range I was set up at. It had a locked gate. the new place I'm shooting can be accessed by anyone and I hate to put it out there and have it stolen. So its sitting behind the barn right now. I also have enough lead...

    “Value” is qualitative so with vary with opinions, same thing with fast or slow. How output is changed is something we can put a number on, if we know a few variables. In any case, it’s pretty easy to see if we run one pass to deprime and...

    personal attack is when I come at you personaly. Not because I make a general statement like lee progressives are junk. I buy chev trucks. Why? Because ive been stung on two fords. Did I make that chev truck or that ford truck. NOPE. I bought, I...

    you don't have a lot of say in what or how I post as long as I stick to the rules and those rules state no personal attacks. A line your coming pretty close to crossing. Maybe there is a bit of bitterness because I basically threw away 500 bucks on...

    1/4 inch boiler plate I got from work back in the day. Steel pipe out the back and a large steel pipe with a plate welded on the bottom to catch the lead. Ive shot a lot of rifle into it. Only thing ive had trouble with are bullets like the barns x...

    do me a favor and after you get a some rounds down range post a review of it. I'm think pretty serious about one. Id like to try one of those binary triggers and if I'm going to waste ammo I can shoot 9s with cast 5-1 or more compared to shooting...

    I have or had progressives from everyone that offers one RCBS, couple Hornady’s, more than one of all the Dillon’s and will brag on the worlds fastest Loadmaster, I put together. I can’t say they are the best machine but once you get one to...

    I agree and really don’t care if one were to only place one case in a progressive shell plate at a time and only perform one operation per pass through the machine. Not how they were designed or intended to work but I am old enough to know there...

    they sell it as a legal length rifle too. there are also companys making extended buffer tubes that make the arm brace as comfortable as a standard stock. I'm in the process of accumulating parts to put together a 5.56 right now. Ive got an lower...

    yup and every factory round of ammo you've ever shot is run through a final size die to insure it runs in even marginal guns. You think maybe its why they call it a "FACTORY" crimp die

    there was no personal attacks here so that said Ive got just as much of a right to post my opinion as you or anyone else. Ive owned both pro1000 and a loadmaster and there junk. If that hurts your feelings I'm sorry but you weren't the person that...

    That’s what I thought you were saying. I don’t think it’s safer when your sitting in your Lazyboy getting stuff all over you and where people hangout. I would argue using just about any progressive press in a place where people don’t...

    I once shot a round of ppc with my 454 Alaskan cut for moon clips. Shot about 5 points lower then my average but still good enough that I would have taken 4th place in that shoot. they had to let the other 4 shooters on the line reshoot though...

    650s were designed with a case feeder in mind and without one there not nearly as handy. A 550 case feeder is an add on and the one I tried blocked the ability to put a case on myself if I didn't want to use the case feeder. Heres my take on it. A...

    I know you cant do it in texas but what ive done in my yard is take a cardboard box and fill it full of snow and pack it down a bit and it will stop most bullets. When your done dump the snow in a wheel barrow and bring it into the garage and let it...

    Ive found the problem claimed way over rated. Ive shot 10s of thousands of 9s 40s and 45s that have gone through a factory crimp die and find at least in those platforms it doesn't hurt a thing. I also will add that in a black gun my main concern is...

    heres my take on a DE. My buddy has two. One a 44 and the other a 50ae. there kind of fun to shoot because recoil is so mild for the power your getting. But there HUGE. to heavy for a belt holster and about as heavy as a light rifle. Even with my...
