    Cool idea, I have two decaping dies, one busted and one new one. The LGS only had complete decapping dies in stock and I was in a hurry. Sending stuff in for warranty doesn't work in Australia, it's a case of catch and kill your own. I recently...

    I just found one of these Lyman moulds in my mould locker tonight. I'm down to one 45/70 at the moment, a H&R Trapdoor which I usually shoot a Big Lube boolit over BP. This boolit should feed well in my Zastava M70 458Win Mag. I think I'd prefer a...

    I consider it a civic duty to clean trash from the streets. The fact that I recycle them is irrelevant, especially the opposing party's rubbish. At least I wait till after the elections unlike the rowdies that kick over or take what I display..

    I had one that sprayed, yes sprayed jacketed bullets all over a 24-36 sheet at 50 yards. Seriously, I'm not talking a 1-foot group, I mean anywhere on the sheet, anywhere on a 24" X 36" in sheet. Anywhere, I can not stress that enough. Loaded with...

    I just picked up a large tin of 4740 with some old ammo. My mate said his father reloaded his 270 and 243 with it. Not the best choice for those calibres by the look of it, but his dear old departed Da was a bushie and needs must. Might make a...

    My son bought a Savage 110 in 300 Win Mag. No matter how I loaded it the pain outweighed the pleasure. It went down the road with the dies, brass, and bullets. Gritting your teeth doesn't help the aim.

    Don't trust others equipment or promises to keep rust at bay. Neither will give anything but a false piece of mind. Use whatever rust preventative freely and make sure they are secure. You can even chain everything together. Don't even trust the...
