    Well, my "which powder to buy" dilemma was solved, as the LGS sold all of the Tite Group. However, all wasn't lost as I purchased 2 containers of Lil Gun yesterday at the same 35% discount I mentioned in my original post.

    I upgraded a Hornady (passed to a family member) to Forster years ago and never looked back. Good quality tool that is used often. For very large batches I use a RCBS power trimmer. It works well also. A Lyman brass prep center (powered) is...

    I got the desire to reload after I saw ads in magazines in the late 1950's and early '60's for Lee Loaders. Having an odd caliber rifle (8 x 57mm Mau.) and not wanting to spend the local asking price (very high, little/no competition) for factory...

    There is always if i recall correctly either "leementing" the mold or, less perminently, "beagling" the mold. Just be sure to use a soft fat boolit, that will obdurate and prevent gas blow by.

    We should demand cell phone jammers be legalized. Why can't the phone be made to ring more than three times before it switches to voice mail? Why can't text messages be shut off?

    Supposed to protect the boolit base. Part of the cause of leading is blow by of melted alloy from the base. If you dont have accuracy or leading problems without a wad, that's a great thing. I've never known anyone who did not use them.

    I'd do what Outpost75 suggests. In fact, years ago I did just that and couldn't be happier with my S & W Mod. 10, especially since it came with aftermarket grips which fit my hand perfectly.

    Don't size the cases. The first time you fire them they will be covered with soot, and fire formed. After you get them cleaned up, they will be a perfect fit and should not need sizing. Many silhouette shooters do not even crimp. Just be sure...
