    Wonder if the one I carried might be in the bunch. If it could tell true stories you guy's would not believe them.

    I have single & double cavity Lyman 22 molds (steel) and 3 different Noe 22 molds (aluminum). I don't own any brass 22 molds. I have never had any heat retention issues with any of them but I always cast in the warmer summer months. Actually the...

    I was wondering if anyone from the forum might have been there. Fairbank and Hazleton, Iowa have a couple good Amish places also.

    Nice find. that is a first year four digit S/N. I didn't check the year on the 221 one I bought but its not a four digit serial. Still looking for the 473 BF action.

    Happy for you Scott. Keep us posted on your progress as you get ready for hunting season. Over 55 years ago my uncle told me you need to shoot at least twice a week starting 3 to 4 months before season or shooting match's. He was really right, it...

    Well sac, good question. If I go out it will be to my apple orchard carrying my Marlin 1895 cowboy. I have a very old 456192 mold that is my favorite 45/70 bullet, easy casting and drops nice fat bullets. I think that mold was originally made for...

    I just got one, too. Great rifle!! I have Redding dies. I also load 40/82, also Redding. They seem to pay more attention to the straight wall case aspect as far as belling enough to seat bullets. Crush less cases with Redding dies (again, just my...

    It does look different. Thats a lot of use to wear away all the plating. On a somewhat different topic I won a #1 lubesizer last night with a brass hopper. And a different type of wrench. It will be here next weekend.

    I have heard that Hoppe's or something like that would take the plating off. But that one is totally devoid of plating. Makes me wonder? Ken

    Lubedude you are dead right on that one. I have the collection packed into 100+ boxes. Most of the collection that is. What remains are 50 or so of the large presses that don't easily fit into a box. Hollywood's, Herter's, CV Schmitt, Ideal and...

    Gtrunicon. Welcome Either of the Hollywood's you are looking at will work with the 300 Win Mag. There is a caveat though. They great presses but the linkage is limited to a 4 to 1 ratio, full length resizing will be a lot of work and effort. ...

    Same process I'm using and they come out plenty clean & shiny for me. I do de-prime everything first, then in the boiling water & Lemi-Shine all in plastic coffee container with the lid snapped on. What kind of wax are you using?

    Iowa Fox replied to a thread Dillon SDB in Reloading Equipment
    For small cases like the 45 Colt and down the SD is a great little press. I would say looking at the design that converting to 7/8 x 14 dies would be very impractical or next to impossible. Its a snap changing dies when you have them set up in a...

    Thanks guys. I've been limping this one along for 10-12 years with RTV and gaskets but its beyond that now. Its wasting maybe 70% of LBT blue so it needs to get the treatment, have had Lyman o rings for it for a lot of years.
