    The pull through expander die is for the TrueLine, Jr. The 310 die is just a sizing/decapping die with a separate muzzle expander as you know. If the die has an expander ball inside the die don't try to use it in the 310 - you don't have enough...

    I agree with those who say learn to reload first, learn to cast second. I still load condom boolits first in a new rifle. Not so much to break it in but just to see what it will do, sort of a baseline. Then I clean it good and see if it will...

    Al does make a nose size die as well. Sounds as if you may need one.

    Wow - asking those questions you appear to be a complete novice at reloading black. The basic principle is to fill the case to 1/16"over the base of the boolit, compress, seat boolit, and shoot. Large rifle primers and FFG black to start, but a...

    I'm not sure where the sticky for "From Ingot to Target" got to but somebody please post the link for Smoke Eater. It is the best manual for casting boolits available and it's free!

    Of the rounds listed the 300BO is the best to start with, relatively low pressure and relatively low velocity. Learn and make your mistakes with this rather than a high velocity, high pressure cartridge. They are more advanced bullet casting...

    It really depends on the kind of arthritis. Osteo arthritis is what I have - severe in my lower back and hips according to the MD. It slows me down some, hurts when I get up in the AM but the more I move the better I feel. Sometimes I have to take...

    Faith is a multifaceted thing - it is a gift of God - all my faith is from and through Him. It is something I need to practice, like a muscle I need to work to strengthen, it is something I need to use to trust, but God tells us to try Him and...

    Arthur W. Pink has an excellent meditation on the seven statements of Christ. You can download his entire writings for just under $10.00 - I would suggest you do and do your own study.

    Amen. Very timely and appropriate warning. Very many in the Church are very good Churchians and not Christians at all. Even in the choir loft and pulpit we find good Churchians who have no real relationship with Christ, and God is all about...

    LOML and I will be celebrating 43 years in June - she tolerates me and I tolerate her. Biblically we are called to 'put up with one another' among a lot of other things. She is as good or better shot than me, but doesn't really enjoy it. ...

    God's interest clearly is in relationship - not in our making the 'right' choices. The deeper our relationship with Him the fewer questions we have about the choices in front of us and the better our choices become. Yes, there is a 'perfect...

    Yes, but the UPS left the box out in the rain, it was broken and most of the small parts were gone. I did get one put together and am using it. The broken one is essentially useless. The bottom is the same as both the new and the old, and that is...

    Except for antiques and C&R to a licensee. Sounds like all of these may qualify for one or the other. If you have a functioning 32 S&W PM me - only 50+ years old for C&R.
