    I have quite a bit of 9mm brass. Most was purchased once fired, quite a bit was range pickup following LEO practice/qualification(not me) and a little was my PU after firing factory ammo. I don't sort by headstamp or trim. Haven't had a problem...

    I started to post that you were crazy to price Vaughn's book like that. Then I looked at a couple of online book dealers. You're on the cheap end. I'm going to take good care of my copy. I'll be following to see if anyone buys.

    Still don't have the new Enfield. Between streets that are covered with ice and ornery UPS drivers, they are threatening to return the package to the sender. I have to take SWMBO in for a MRI in the morning so won't be home. I may try to schedule...

    All my molds(aluminum, brass, iron) are in my heated & cooled shop. All are in plastic containers of various persuasions, both salvaged from other uses or purchased solely for my molds. All the iron molds have a couple of desiccant packs that my...

    Thanks to all for the discussion. I'm learning all that I didn't know about Enfields which was just about everything. Not sure that my new rifle will be delivered today. We have about 4" of snow over sleet or freezing rain(don't know the...

    Thanks to all. I've already bookmarked a couple of threads on the Enfield and will add the article link provided by Bruce Drake. With 2 rifles, I think that I will probably just use different headstamp brass with each rifle. Somehow I have ended...

    I am expecting an Enfield No.4 Mk2 to be delivered today. This will be my second of this particular rifle. The one I am expecting today is "unissued" per Empire Arms. I want to shoot both rifles and reload cast bullets(boolits) but I have read in...

    You might consider those segmented type belts. Not cheap but well worth the money. I've got them on both the drill press and tablesaw. The above tip for determining length would work since you buy by total length, so much a foot I believe.

    If I had to guess the prescription drug industry uses more of those desiccant pacs than anyone else. Our son is a pharmacist and he saved me at least a gallon container full. many of them are the small perforated plastic cylinders. I put one or...

    Is this for the Nonte book? Mine is old but hardly used. EDIT(1/1/2018)! Just looked on used book site that I use and found 3 new copies(actually probably only 2) for up to $467. I doubt that anyone would pay that but I would have to consider...

    I've got a FA .454 w/.45Colt & .45ACP cylinders. Have never shot it with the .454 cylinder. Also have a .475 Linebaugh built by Linebaugh that I've only shot midrange loads in. A 5 shot .45 Colt that has never seen a maximum load. I like owning...

    Several years ago I read that Donnelly's book had several errors. Although I have a copy(hardback), I've never read it close enough to determine if there are any errors or I did not recognize an error if I saw it. I have always consulted Ken...
