    I'm in this GB for a NLG 6 cavity. I already have the 6 cavity lube groove mold but haven't loaded it yet. I now have two grandsons(grown) that have 9mm pistols. Can anyone point me to a thread that has proven loads for this boolit, both...

    I guess the consensus is that you should buy it. I've got about 10 lbs left and if I came across a good buy for it, I would snap it up.

    I think I've got everything but not very organized. I've got the big book and several updates. I may not have everything that is included in "The Complete Volume" but it is more than I will ever get thru and includes every cartridge I might load...

    Appreciate the comments on lube groove vs NLG. I have a 9mm lube groove mold and am signed up on a GB for a NLG mold for the same boolit. As mentioned in another post, my shooting ability won't prove one way or the other which is more or less...

    I've been loading a lot of .45 ACP on a turret press lately. I would like to have a separate crimp die but so far haven't found a cheap one or a extra cheap .45ACP set to get a crimp die from. It occurred to me that the 4th(crimp) die on my Dillon...

    I'm not interested in pushing these cases to +P levels. I might load them to max .38 Spec levels as shown in the manuals. As I said in my post, I don't remember why I bought them. I don't load anything beyond what the manuals say is max. ...

    I've received RCBS dies in the small flat rate box. Slightly tight fit but worked. Hornady dies in their original box would not fit. I'm not sure about the flat rate padded envelope. It might be too bulgy(?) for them.

    I've renewed mine at least 4 times. I'll go a year to 15 mo. between purchases, sometimes less. I'm not really a collector. I only buy what I intend to reload for and shoot. All remain as issued, no sporterizing(bubbaizing?). I just checked...

    I made some of this a couple of months ago. As usual I misread or read too much into the recipe. In addition of 7 oz of Hoppe's #9, I just put 7 oz of STP. When I read the quoted post yesterday, I went to the shop and looked at the recipe I had...

    A few years ago I bought some .38 Spec brass from someone on this board that was described as WCC Heavy. At least, that is what I identified the can I put them in. The headstamp only has WCC and some number that I can't read reliably. To check...

    I haven't missed voting in any election in which I am eligible since I was 21. My first was the presidential election between Goldwater and Johnson. I learned a lesson in that election which I have never forgotten.

    Since this thread has been resurrected I'll add a couple of things that have been posted in other threads. I apparently missed this thread when it was first started. I especially appreciate jmort's posting of all the variations of Ed's Red. Quite...

    Appreciate the offer, catboat, but as I posted, I've used the funds I planned for the handgun to donate to various organizations that support the 2nd Amendment. In the overall scheme of things, my donations won't make a huge difference but maybe...

    I bought a dozen pint cans from a vendor that I found by Googling "metal cans". Can't remember the vendor. They come in handy for my own use as well as giving to others.

    I've been thinking about it for about a year now. I'm 77 and still looking for stuff. I'm going to give our 2 sons a printout of all my guns when they are here Christmas. Hoping that they can have an idea what they want when the time comes. I...

    The club I belong to is strictly an outdoor range. Usually, I go in the middle of the week/day, and am the only one there. A few times I was there when the local Sheriff's dept or police dept was practicing or qualifying. Those times I was able...
