    Demand and pay for insurance. I received one that was poorly packed. The muzzle was sticking outside the box and banged on "whatever" (UPS truck wall or maybe concrete).

    I had bulging issues with R+P brass during seating (I would crimp in another step, so my problem wasn't the crimp). 44-40 brass is thin and prone to bulging...some brands are thinner than others...R+P seems to be the thinnest, IMHO. Be sure to...

    Dave, Welcome to the forum. I have a early version (360-160-SWC) of the NOE mold linked to below (360-165-SWC-T5) It is very close to the Lee you mention, but the NOE has two crimp grooves, which is very handy if you have a S&W 357 mag revolver...

    EDC: I have a short tale of woe. When I was younger, I would carry a inexpensive pocket knife. Sometime in the early 90s, I spent too much money (for my income at that time) on a Gerber Applegate-Fairbairn Covert folder, it was one of the early...

    Last time I checked at the nearest scrap yard to me was $.11 per pound. I think about a month ago. 2 or 3 years ago was $2.11 a pound. At an indoor range 12 miles west of me, you can buy 5 gal. buckets of range brass for about $60.00. Works out to a...
