    If you don't have anything to scrounge one off of? getting a short heavy duty extension cord at a box store will probably be cheaper than Graingers. Or look to goodwill or other thrift store, for a cheap item with a good heavy duty cord.

    I found two fellows that had 3D printed plastic inserts for the RCBS swagger, but they hadn't saved the patterns for the printers and weren't willing to make them for sale. Both the RCBS and Dillon tools have this problem.

    Don1357, welcome to the forum. I use a heat gun and Mineral spirits. it works well most of the time, especially if the lube is NRA 50-50 or the old lyman lamp soot lube, both of which are a very common lube used back in the day.

    well shucks ! I was hoping to hear of some colander type of thing with slots to allow the GCs to fall through, but small enough for perc caps not to. as to why they were mixed? I suspect a group of 'tins' had loose caps, and those older hornady...

    I forgot to mention, I bought mine in a RCBS kit in 1981. It came with a set of scales, a powder measure and dies. The gunshop only had one in 30/30, but they swapped out the dies for a set of RCBS 223 and added a set of 308 dies. The kit has paid...

    I never slugged my SIL's Hungarian 9mm Mak. My 95gr Lee mold drops them at .366 or a bit more? it's been a while since I cast some. I Lube them with 45-45-10 twice, then load 'em without sizing using PowerPistol powder.

    Maybe? The Hutchinson show in late Sept has been a staple for 36 years, known widely as a locally run 300 table show (by the Elk's club) with lots of private dealers, much like the Wells, MN show in March. There is usually a "crocodile productions...

    shot the barrel loose? WOW ! Ruger couldn't fix it? WOW ! again. As DougGuy says, .431 seems like the size to use, if it'll fit. Hunting load, I'd use H110, work up a load for your gun, starting at Hodgdon's recomendation for a start load.
