    The case feeder does not save any time w/out a collator. You have to account for filling tubes, which take time. Iím able to grab and insert a case while moving the handle up. There is no wasted time w/ this method and I can keep up w/ the press....

    dverna replied to a thread Sandbox bullet trap in Cast Boolits
    You will need a lot more tire mulch to stop a bullet and sorting out the lead will be a tad more difficult. But at least it is light.

    dverna replied to a thread Sandbox bullet trap in Cast Boolits
    Mine is very similar. Made with 2x10 sides and bottom. 3/4" ply for the back as I had a scrap piece but thinner would work too. Put a 2x6 on the top to reduce sand flying out and to leave a slot that I use to fill the trap or top it off. ...

    That is what I would do, but I am not running anything over 1500 FPS.

    It depends on what you shoot. For me, it is Varget, H4895, Clean Shot, Unique, Promo. If I did not have 35 lbs of CleanShot, it would be HP38. I have others, but the above represents about 90% of my stock.

    You will never regret a .357 Mag. It can be loaded light with cheap .38 Spl brass and heavy enough for deer at close range. Effective against two legged varmints too. I would not suggest a SA revolver, but that is me. I have two Colt...

    dverna replied to a thread 223 mouse fart loads? in Cast Boolits
    I think the same way. Why cast, sort (and you will be sorting if you cast like me LOL), lube, and reload when you are not saving money or increasing performance? I suppose if someone cannot get .22's it is "necessary", or back when .22's were...

    I bought this to potentially save time. Not to add more steps to processing. If I have to do anything special I will go back to using one of the other presses I have. Itís not like LC brass is odd. You will find a lot of people using that brass...

    Amazon is going to be handled in short order. It will most likely come from the EU first. Their practice of using third party sellers data to produce products that undercut the third party sellers is the epitome of anti-competitive practices. ...

    Almost all my brass is military brass and much of it from machine guns. When I load 7.62 NATO, I can get rounds that are difficult to chamber. I assume a small base die can address that. I am planning to feed a few ARís and two bolt...

    Lloyd, you have stated the obvious. A more powerful pistol caliber is always a better performer. I never bought into the rationale that "with proper bullets the 9mm performs as well as the .40". Put those same designed bullets in the .40 and it...

    I used to load 20k 12 ga year. The "cheap" hulls were loaded once and I used them for doubles...shoot and pitch. The only "cheap" hull that I would load multiple times was the Gun Club. Buying those cheap hulls makes no sense to me. Go to a...

    I am a satisfied user of Amazon Prime. Living in a very remote area is it a great option for me. 25 miles to a town of 4,000 and selection is limited. I can buy almost anything I need and have it shipped to my door in a couple of days. I have...

    Thatís what happens when you shoot 9mm out of a 40 S&W gun. They go bang but donít eject. Donít ask me how I know.

    God requires evil. He created it either directly or indirectly. There was nothing in the beginning and God created everything. We can speculate on why, but that can be upsetting to some.

    Youíd have to bump them up to use them in a 357. W/ large throats and bores in 9mm Iíd be tempted to bump them up for a few of my pistols.

    I did. Donít know what happened but I had a lot of stuck cases. Iím not a fan of spray lubes for bottle neck cases and Iím going to blame it. I caused the issue to persist by not switching over to mink oil(lanolin) sooner. Once I did no more...

    My work schedule was screwed up today so I was home by 11am. Gave me time to try full length sizing LC 5.56 brass. I had the press broken down and put away. I appreciate how quick it is to setup. Only took a few minutes. Sprayed the cases w/...
