    It's an interesting question fish4bugs but my casting experience doesn't give a good answer to your question. If the stars line up right I can alternate two 2-cav moulds and achieve a similar production rate as I can with a 4-cav or even 5 or 6-cav....

    HazMat is not federally regulated in this case. The DOT requires placarding for shipping but that's it. The HazMat fee is charged by the shipping companies alone. I'm assuming it's to cover higher insurance premiums. But in all reality it's...

    Loaded up 15 rounds of 35 Whelen ammo for my hunting rifles and prepped 50 pieces of new RP brass for my brother. Loaded the new brass with J-words today and put them back in the tumbler for a final polish. Nap time!

    I agree, no need for a GC with factory spec 38-55 ammo and little need to go faster, IMHO. Mine drop @ .380 and that seems to be working fine in my 1901 vintage 94. Can't speak to elk hunting with it, mine's mainly a range toy or eye candy and I've...

    TXGunNut replied to a thread Venison vs Beef in Our Town
    Not a big fan of beef, prefer wild pork over beef or even venison. Since I hunt down south the meat is on ice within a few hours and stays there for a least a few days, bloody water is drained and replaced with ice at least once before I process it.

    It's not the lawyers causing the tight load range. It's the powder itself. If it's like TG than it's an extremely fast burner. Minimal load increases can spike the pressure easily. It's why I don't like working w/ powders that fast. As far...

    Here is what I've gathered. It's not an easy swap and they are caliber specific. So if you like to load a bunch of different cartridges then you don't want to add one. The people that have them seem to like them a lot.

    That would be the PPQ M1 which is no longer in production. They caved to the American market that grew up on 1911s. They moved the mag release to the "typical" position on the M2s which is a lot less ergonomic. It's a shame because the paddle...
