    Mr Frog Person Sir, you really need to plan on making a trip to Denver for the Colorado Gun Collectors show, held this weekend each year. If you need old tool parts, it's here. This is a real collectors show, no modern or in production stuff...

    It's a good scale, it was, maybe still is, the standard scale all others were judged against. Most anyone who made reloading equipment had a version of it. It was the first scale with this design readly available to hand loaders. Ken

    Pepe Ray, there probably is but your question makes this a phishing post and can get you in trouble. If you want, you should post them in Swap and sell only.

    I read a good Sci-Fi book a while back where the good guy carried a .22LR rifle. The idea was he could carry several hundred rounds on him at all times. But, it was quiet. No cans back then, though the report is not so loud, like a .223 or worse a...

    Jack, you cannot change the length of the stroke, but you can reverse the handle to up stroke or down stroke operation. For what it's worth the two I have are both set for upstroke, lift the handle to raise the rams. Ken

    Volume 1, Issue 1, March 1960. 57 years and counting. The beginning of Shooting Times. The newspaper format lasted about 3 years, I would have to count the issues and I forgot to do that, before it changed to the typical magazine format.

    Mine has a split shellholder carrier. The hole is 3/4" if I remember correctly, maybe larger. There is a set screw to clamp the front together. The typical Hollywood H type will not work.
