    Own two dillon's, it's faster than using my Lee Turret but you can replace the Turret with a Dillon - just not the other way around.

    Hmmm, how does this conflict with your second post? You know about being prepared for flood, storm, fire, power outage, etc I guess I didn't get the point of your first post correctly.

    My five-inch Colt Police Positive Special was made in 1924 and has a 0.005 cylinder gap. The pooled average of seven different samples of factory .32-20 loads was 814 fps. This defines a sensible velocity limit for these old guns when assembling...

    Starline is stocking basic cases (that 223 are made out of) with no caliber markings but I don't know if they mark starline on them.

    My "go-to" bullet in all of my .44s is the Accurate 43-230G, which is a double-crimp-groove design: Use the rear crimp groove to seat out long in .44 Special brass to increase powder capacity, or to exploit the longer cylinder length of Ruger...

    I bought a new #1 a couple years back. It was returned twice to Ruger for FTF. The first visit also resulted in them changing the buttstock for some reason as a “courtesy”. I guess it must have gotten damaged in shipping since there were also dings...

    I started with a 54 caliber one and had Bob Hoyt rebore it, to get an appropriate twist and rifling form.

    Years ago I was in Duncan, OK at a gun shop, Murfs guns IIRC, over on the East side of town. They had a new 788 44mag for sale for $99. My hand was on my wallet, but talked myself out of it. Shouldn't have listened to myself that day (other...

    I tried some .358 B H N 12 bullets through the cylinder throats of a 357 revolver. They don't fall through under there own weight, but push through easily. Throats measure with a Mic. at .358.4 So the bullets are .000.4 under. The groove is...

    What ever 357 dies your using should have come with and "M Die" type expander? I've been loading 38/357 with Lyman and RCBS dies and with the propriety Dillon dies in my SDB for years. The standard expanders with each have done quite well with...

    Yes, I'll be curious as to what Pedersoli says. Might be easier to paper patch a Lyman Foster up to bore diameter from 0.705". Different thickness of paper or more or less wraps would do it for both bores. While I haven't tried the Federal...

    What I do is to take the new blocks out of the box and brush the cavities and entire surface of the blocks with Palmolive dishwashing detergent, then put in a coffee can, enough tap water to cover, then boil for 20 minutes. With whatever is in our...

    Well, again, I am surprised there is so much difference in bore diameters. I would figure the bores would be reamed to final diameter which should put them withing a thou or two of each other. Even if the barrels are made from drawn tubing the...

    Cap'n Morgan has hit on something there! My biggest problem is air bubbles and shrinkage with the hot melt glue. Using an old press or sizer as a piston pump should provide enough "oomph" to squirt melted glue (or plastic) into a form, though it...

    If you want a light weight plinker take a look at the Accurate Molds site. I asked Tom to scale down a .45 design to 0.433" it's his 43-165B... a .44 cal. 165 gr. TC design that shoots well from my .44 mag Marlin. Its a great little boolit and fat...

    Yes, the hb pin is removable. The old style were riveted on place but the new style have a screw. Problem is the drive key... the hb pin has a slit milled in it so a new hb pin would be needed. Not only without a slot but with a shape to suit the...
