    Since there is no lube when PCing, how would it be if a boolet was sized enough to smash the grooves???? Just wondering.

    I've tried different presses. Lyman turret, RCBE RC, Lee Classic cast, Pacific "C", CH "O", and some others. I find my old Lee, three hole, turret works best for me right now. I only use it for loading. Sizing is done on the big CH "O" press....

    That's what i had to do. Put a couple of extra shots in the holder. I noticed that if I the leg is screwed in to much to "O", the beam would stop short. I think the magnets dampening maybe holding it back. What I did was adjust the leg to get...

    I get the parts from RCBS to fix my scale. The plastic leveling foot, Hanger and pan. The pan is the newer style, but it fit the hanger so it should work. I put it together, and it won't "O" I adjusted the leveling foot, but hanger was to light....

    Looks like a fun project. Don't forget the roof exhaust vent. Don't want to go to sleep, and never wake up.

    Most use either 348Win or 8mm Lebel. I use Lebel brass. Rim is larger. Cheaper than the 348Win. When forming, go really slow. I enlarge the 8mm neck in steps. I use the Lee Die set. I made some different diameter sizers.

    The next time you replace your wiper blades, save the 2 metal strips that hold the rubber to the blade, they make perfect picks and tension bars, you can try grinding different profiles on the picks and make the tension bar by bending the strip 90*.

    I almost never use a powder drop anymore. I use a Lyman auto scale. Old and out of production for a while now, but it's the best I've found. I use it with all types of smokeless powders.

    I've done the same for the whole boolet. Never tried it on just the bands. Also this is a Lyman mold. I've only done Lee molds. I'll give it a try. Thanks

    Except for the color, it looks exactly like my old Midway powder measure. I think it was made by Redding at the time. It's a good measure. Doesn't work well with very light loads, even with the small pistol adapter. Price is right.

    The boolets actually shoot good. I'm just thinking if it will do as well in my other rifles, being that it is a little uneven. The pins looks to be good. No parting lines on boolets.
