    Actually, all smarta$$ answers aside, it depends on what you start out with for diameter, and what you need to end up with. If your mould drops a boolit at .359 and you need it at .360, you would only size it after you powder coat. However, if it...

    Yeah, that is a stumbling point. I'm guessing the right cordless drill will come with wheels and trailer hitch.

    That's really nice, I was giving some though to a similar device, but want to make it portable and possibly powered with a cordless drill.

    I'm no expert, but as I understand it, the powder funnel bells the case mouth. So for most of the .30's, you could use the B funnel, but the .243 would need a smaller funnel (I), for it's smaller case mouth. That's why you need a different one for...

    You are right TCLouis, you do not get many 3000 PSI fills from a 3000 PSI tank. The scba hold to 4500. Groundpounder, I may need to get a scope with some hash marks on the reticule to have much luck at 100 yards.

    Smaller calibers get more shots per fill, but I wanted a bit more thump kinda like a guy who shoots 35. I've been hunting big game with 35 whelen since 1979. Edit, got my Whelen in 89.

    The pump an pellets arrived about 11. The rifle had about 600 psi in the tank when it arrived. It took over 300 pumps to bring the pressure up to 2900. I fired two clips, 16 rounds and the pressure was about 2100. 120 pumps later it is...

    I'm 61, but hope the exercise will be good for me. Already scheming on simple stilt to set the pump on so I don' need to bend over to pump. A scuba tank is pretty unwieldy, I have one, it's out of date. Vendors sell smaller tanks, but I...

    If you can get the punch out of the press. Take the punch to an anvil and Lightly tap the brass until it stretches enough to come off. Mine took a lot of tapping.

    That die might be a .223 diameter. Some older 22 caliber rifles had bores smaller than .224. Those .2233 bullets just might work in your rifle.
