    I am a 76 year old geezer who has been casting and loading since the age of 16. I was well past middle age before people became concerned about dirty powder, dirty hands and smoke. We loaded cast bullets lubed the traditional way. I was past 65...

    I am an egalitarian sort, with several 1911s, several Smith & Wesson 45 ACP DA revolvers and several SA revolvers with 45 ACP Cylinders. I see no reason why I should have to choose between them. They all work just fine.

    Just a couple of thoughts, which may or may not help. 1. You are the wrong part of the country. I live just a few miles from Mexico here in South Texas and unless a person that does not speak Spanish or is Hispanic, is unemployable in this part...

    OK, I am glad you double checked as I was wrong. I grabbed a seating stem out of a die in my press and it was 1/2 X 20 (National fine). I doubled checked just now and it was a Lyman seating die. I went to my die cabinet and took out a real RCBS...

    The original Keith molds didn't have 90 degree lube grooves. There was a slight angle, or else they would not come out of the mold. I understand that Keith original had steel bullets turned with 90 degree lube groove corners and sent those to Lyman,...

    Over the production life, Lyman did make some significant changes in the original Keith design, which did prompt Keith to disown the Lyman versions. He threw a particular fit when Lyman changed from the square lube groove to a rounded one. He...
