    The advantage of a large disk over a small disk is longer life before having to change sanding disks. The advantage of a disk over a belt is usually the size of the table making it easier to use pad holding jigs. The belt sander will give longer...

    ulav8r replied to a thread New Press? in Reloading Equipment
    One RockChucker is enough, if you have 3 or 4 other single stage presses. A c frame press is plenty good enough for de-priming, bullet seating, or any other loading chore than case forming. Save the Rock Chucker for when it is needed and it will...

    Another good way to patina a blade is to peel a few apples and slice them. Will also remove light rust if it occurs. This was recommended by my uncle, a professional butcher. I enjoyed the apple pies that resulted.

    Prepare the full length case, plug the flash hole, attach the handle, etc. Then use your scale to to put the desired weight charge in the case to determine how much to cut off of the case. Trim to near the powder charge needed and start weighing...

    Use a fine whetstone to smooth up the cutting edge and stone a light radius on the tip of the tool. The radius will do the most to smooth the cut. Normal practise is to use a radius equal to or larger than the depth of cut.

    Saw the Yildiz at Academy in Conway this morning. $129 for the 410, $139 for the 12 gauge. Was in display behind glass, and the one clerk was busy so I did not get to hold it.

    Depends on the manufacturer. US manufacturers define the diameter as the swing, most Europeans use the center height as swing. That means that the European 5 inch swing is the same as a US 10 swing. Then there is the fact that most list the swing...

    ulav8r replied to a thread Which Big Bore 94 ? in Leverguns
    Yep. Just checked the SAAMI drawings. The 444 has the same base diameter as the 356 and the 308/358, so it could be used to form 356. The 375 is quite a bit smaller, same as the 38/55. So if a 356 is acquired, 444 coud be used to form 356. If...
