    I wonder how much spring-back there is with those FMJ? You might want a undersized 30 cal sizer die...maybe .307? I'd use a swaging lube, like Lanolin thinned with s bit of neatsfoot oil.

    If your application would lend toward a motor over heating, if sure would make sense to connect the purple wires as lightman states, so the overloads are in series with the switch.

    Even though I do recall the dollar amount and it was a 1 ton passenger Van, I don't recall all the other details? maybe she had the brakes done too?

    The vise was the next step. It was 100+degrees in the evening here and my Wife and I were sitting under the aircon and the best I has was Vice Grips, haha. I'll try it downstairs in the morning. Thanks.

    Next minit! It's 2019. I obviously got busy when I got back from China and this post slipped through the net. I have just acquired another push feed Model 70 Win Westerner in 243Win. This one is a rough ex farm rifle that I picked up real cheap....

    One productive Saturday afternoon/evening, I piled up about 2000 from a NOE 5 cavity mold (358-128-SWC). I did take a break for dinner...so I guess it was more like two sessions back-to-back...but all in one day. BTW, the week following that...

    The Last cast Iron thread got me to thinking that I should be looking for a nice vintage #8 to add to my collection. Mostly I cook with a #9 Griswold and find it a tad large sometimes. I found a older Wagner at one antique store for $17. The...

    I think this is just a classic example of aiming “about a foot” above, when it’s actually 4 feet. I totally understand this, given he is using the stock sights ( they seem HUGE compared to the “tiny” target), and the 3” barrel. Any kind of precise...
