    There is an official gauge the counter staff have. Ask one time to see them gauge it, you will never hear it again. I have found a very few power hungry individuals shaped 95% of my bad feelings about post office. I now have a fantastic...

    My father did that for his straight stock Marlin lever-action in 44 Magnum in the 90's. A bit of cutting and welding and a bit of judicious filing before a reblue and boom, big D-loop lever for a big gloved hand for winter hunting in Maine. My...

    For my SKS, it preferred my Lee 155gr C.E. Harris designed bullet. For my 7.62x39 AR15 upper (both in 1-10" twist) I found I had better accuracy with my old Lyman 311359 (120gr) because that barrel had much shorter throat than my Chinese SKS

    You'll need a few more items to reload beside a press. Lee sells starter kits if you want the basics to go along with the die set you found. that small of a cartridge will require a powder scale to ensure you load the right amount of powder.

    It could also be the dies paired with the chamber of the barrel? 9mm Largo is a tapered case while 38 Super is a straight walled case because of the semi-rim. With my Star Super, I use 38 Super/38 ACP dies with 9mm SuperComp brass which is 38...
