    The 105 series was a smooth bored die of same diameter all the way threw (just like a core seat die of more common swage dies), the internal punch had a concave shape to to match a bullet tip while the base punch was typically flat, I suppose it...

    Yes, I have several recipes that call for "file" (sp ?) powder, but have never been able to find it up here in Western Canada. I should try some of the local specialty spice shops to see if they have it. I just checked online and there is a recipe...

    I've loaded IMR4198 in several different .38-55's with great success using both plain base and GC 255 grain boolits. Depending on the strength of the action on your .38-55 you can load from about 17.0 / 18.0 grains up to about 28 / 30 grains with...

    Redding and RCBS grace most of the boxes on my desk. I like Hornady dies with a caveat, they can be a pain with cast. The seating sleeve is perfect for jacketed but often requires honing our for fatter boolits. If you hone it out, you’ve defeated...

    I believe the OP is looking for a 311290 which is quite decidedly not a 311291. The 311290 is the only one of the 5 original lyman gas check designs discontinued. It was also scaled down for 7mm and called the 287308, also discontinued and also...
