    Bayberry wax is funny stuff..I bought a pound of it and had to use a wood chisel to break it into usable pieces. When cut, it was so hard, lots of very fine particles & to do this on large clean sheet of paper. I thought this stuff is...

    Few years back, I did a simple lube test for my low velocity cast wadcutter loads. My Lyman 45 was filled with Micro lube (discontinued?)..I used this lube for all my IHMSA revolver loads, so I lubed bullets with this. I also used my home brewed...

    I too heard about the 311413 reputation for lousy accuracy. I owned a nice 1898 Krag but bore was very dark. Best jacketed accuracy at 100yds. was 1 1/2" no matter what load I tried. NECO had just came out with their pressure (fire) lapping kit...

    I purchased this from a dealer friend. Nickle plating looks to be near 90% intact. This is a straight line tool. I wasn't sure if the .40-63 would work with my RCM turned .40-63 everlasting brass, but I started a 330gr. paper-patched bullet in...
