    Lee Handpress that I gave to my oldest son this year. I told him that I bought it before he was born 20 years ago and he would be able to pass it along to his own son or daughter in a couple of decades also.

    I find a load with most every rifle cartridge that does well with RD and it takes so little. So far (little load work up done) only really accurate pistol/revolver load is for a friend in his 45 Colt. Weather permitting I plan to try to get more...

    Do you always get a lube star no matter the cartridge/loading. I got distinct lube stars (will send someone the pics to post here if there is any interest) with my Husky 7 mm Mag and a 24" SS AR15 (5.56) barrel. I do not seem to get the lube...

    Since posting pics here is several steps about what I can do, If someone will post them here for discussion, I will email them a pic of some 3 shot 50 yd groups with boolits out of a Type 99. I have no idea of what a 100 yard group would look like...

    I use the fuse cutting section of a blasters tool. If I am careful I do not nick the bullet. For boolits I use the impact/inertia puller.

    I've got about 80 of these 170gr bullets that had been pulled at one time in the past (long, long ago as they were still lubed with Lyman's Black Moly lube and I've never used that lube mix which means I inherited them at one point). That rebated...

    Agreed. My friend and two other store co-managers in the area are being replaced by one guy on a regional coverage approach. Walmart just saved 6 figures easily by eliminating those three spots in TN alone.

    Lyman 311359 when checked and lubed usualy weighs out at 123gr in most alloys. Lyman 311410 is a 130gr spirepoint bevel base bullet if you don't want to deal with gaschecks. LEE also sells a 120gr Roundnose gas-check design but I don't have any...

    If they are accurate at 2132, then why not shoot that load. Drop to the lower velocity load for lower powder consumption in the plinking and practice load.

    to rebarrel a C96. They used to advertise in the old "Gun List", but I can't find a listing for them any more. Are they gone, or just not advertising in the new publication. Yes, if all else fails I will think about Redmans also.

    If your rifle has a standard 1:9 twist rate? 100 yard (or further) plinking with a Lyman 266466 at 140gr or the Lyman 266673 at 150gr should meet your needs. NOE has those same great 6.5mm bullet design molds on hand as well....
