    saw the shoulder doc and had a brain wave test yesterday. While kind of saw the shoulder doc. As usual they give you a PA that cant make decisions. First the emergency room xray wasn't good enough so they wanted another one. Then that one isn't good...

    id say out of the factory guns your not going to get any stouter then a redhawk of some kind. Semi autos? For the most part most of them are pretty darned well engineered. If held down and made to choose id probably say a 19 glock.

    I allways seem to have better accuracy with harder alloys. Especially in semi auto guns. Most of them tend to have shallow rifling and my guess is the harder alloy gets a better grip on the rifling. That and the fact that you get less deforming from...

    problem around here with dwarfs is the deer bear ect eat all the fruit off of them. Deer even eat the branches. that and being a hybrid tree they tend to not be as hardy and you get more problem with diseases.

    I go today to find out what they will do with the shoulder. My guess is just sling it and let it heal. At least its my left shoulder so shooting can still be done.

    ive loaded for bolt guns, ar15s aks and about every type of centerfire rifle and never saw the need to crimp any bottleneck rifle round. Might have some use for VERY hard kicking rounds like the 375 H&H 416 mags ect but ive shot a pile of those...

    Ill agree with some in that ww is good enough for most. Good enough to make your gun go bang. What I have found though is in most smokeless loading harder alloys usually give better accuracy. When I doing serious accuracy work I usually like to use...

    nice thing today that's different then 30 years ago is you don't have to spend twice as much on a scope as a rifle costs to get a good scope. Today theres 200 (or less) dollar vx1 luepold, vortex diamondbacks, bushnell elites. Nikon prostaffs (the...

    My guess is that they have make there rep with reliable progressive at prices consumer can handle and don't want some bullet feeder helping them loose the reputation. Kind of like they did with there primer tube fillers.

    ive used them on many handgun calibers. All semi auto though. The work just fine unless you get a carried away with over crimping. I prefer a roll crimp on a revolver and in the 40 years ive been loading rifles ive never seen a need to crimp a...

    I bought one years ago and am a big Dillon cheerleader. That said the primer filler was very unreliable. I fought it for a few months and ended up sending it back for a refund. The 30 dollar FA primer tube filler works just as good if not better....

    Id just load them and shoot them. If you iron out the existing crimp and recrimp your going to work the brass more and shorten its life even more. Shoot them up and do it right the next time.

    I like steal. the just seem to heat more uniformly and hold up much better then aluminum. brass is another good one but heats up a bit faster and is heavy. Aluminum is at the bottom. Yes you can cast bullets out of an aluminum mold. that said...
