    Dave, You sent me your original books when you thought you'd never need them again. Send me a PM with your mailing address and they'll get sent home in a most riki-tick fashion! :) They were very helpful reference works when I was setting up...

    Be careful with drifting that sight, it really does not take much. A 8 pound sledge is probably overkill to drift the sight the amount needed and a 3 pounder could be used if handled judiciously . . . That said . . . This will allow you to...

    Congrats on a fine job of purchasing. Put me down for wanting to see a picture. I still regret passing up a type 38 Carbine in Nashville some years ago, because it had a walnut (two piece, but walnut) stock and appeared to be unfired. Is this...

    Even though Lee says it won't work I was able to hand fit the new style lever on an old round style hand primer. Going slow it only took about 15 minutes to fit it. YMMV There is no telling how many thousands of primers it had seated when it...

    For me Mike, I have to limit my recoil due to some neck surgery I had a few years back. downloading that JDJ cartridge to recoil levels I can handle really isn't worth going past the 357-44B&D levels in a light single-shot gun. Bruce

    I could have sworn someone on this site had been working on a 30 caliber wildcat built of a 357 Magnum case that they were calling a Bobcat. If you run a 300BLK sizer die over a 357 Magnum case you probably would come up with a nice looking...

    It was designed for a Truncated Cone bullet profile if I remember the history on that cartridge's development in the Post WWI timeframe. http://cartridgecollectors.org/documents/Introduction-to-9mm-Luger-Cartridges.pdf I prefer to shoot TC...

    The Lyman 311359 mold drops a short spirepoint gas-checked 115gr bullet that I use for my 300BLK and 30 Apache chambered ARs.

    I have a 5" 400 Corbon barrel for my Govt model 1911. I found I prefer the 145gr bullet over the 170gr bullet for range use. If I was considering using it for deer, I might consider the heavier bullet but the 145gr SWC does it for me. I use the...
