    I didn't really modify one. Mine is a old used Dake (made in USA) that I got at a scrap iron yard, I cleaned it up and since it came without a Anvil plate, I made a custom Anvil from two 3/8 steel plates, to hold a FCIII gas check die.

    I am a member of a UK based internet forum about self-sufficient living. Very few members from the US, so I just chose to use "Minnesota" as a user nick-name...no one else there from Minnesota. Most everyone on that forum post in their profile,...

    I totally agree. and I'll add, a deformed boolit will still be accurate enough at short range. But once you start shooting past 25 yards the poor accuracy will be obvious.

    A few days ago, looking at my "yellowed" plastic headlight lenses on my Toyota, which I posted about previously (the polishing compound treatment lasted about 1 or 2 years?). I decided to read up and try the "DW OFF" (Deep Woods OFF insect spray)...

    I use my Star also for sizing TL'd boolits. Just don't pump the lube, and run 'em through FAST! TL, size, and TL again, and I'm good to go. Also, got a die from a forum member to size rifle boolits to .310.

    A shooting friend of mine retired from the Border Patrol and moved "to the end of a 20-mile dirt road" in central AZ. It's possible - and it's a dry heat (higher country where he moved to, not so much - heat, that is).

    If this happened to me, and this new dealer was remorseful as you said, I'd take the full refund and not accept the holster. Then I'd remove the FB post if he requested that. I'd probably still go to this fella's shop, but would be leery about...

    There have been some good common sense info posted so far. Before I'd proceed to load "Ruger" loads in a CVA or Henry, I'd contact the manufacturers or search their websites for MAX specs...but I doubt they will provide that online?

    I haven't investigated the bottom of the Lee pot for a bottom mounted TC, but I would think it would be thin enough for mounting via a "through hole", with a nut on the inside. I wouldn't trust any JB weld or epoxy, unless it was rated for 1000...

    nah, that's the 50 cal (C501-440RF). When you look at the cavity size in comparison to the block size, it's difficult to imagine those blocks could be used with a larger pair of boolits...I wish Lee would have either made a single cavity, or used...
