    An 8x57, 7.65 Mauser or a .308 die will help if you set the die up so it does not push the shoulders back too far. You might consider getting a compound linkage press for case forming. I have formed many 7x57 cases from .270 brass with one stroke...

    It may be your opinion but a 300 grn 45-70 bullet weighs less than a 7/8 oz (382 grains) 20 ga load and with 10 grains to 12 grains of Unique is slower. Plus the 45-70 is not pushing the weight of a 20 ga plastic wad in addition to the weight of the...

    Primer pockets swagers are not designed to resize the entire primer pocket. They are only designed to iron out the crimp on the edge of the primer pocket. I have used the RCBS tool a lot and I find it works much better if you do 2 or 3 things. ...

    The use of a factory loaded .410 slug is a totally bad joke. I actually shot an armadillo with one from the range of about 20 feet and pretty much killed it on the spot. I stopped by a week or so later after the buzzards had cleaned out the shell...

    You are very wrong about atheists and many other things. We simply do not believe in any supreme being. When we get up in the morning we are thankful for another nice day. But we do not attribute that nice day to some magic friend in the sky. To...

    I have 4 Wilson trimmers that I came by when purchasing batch of stuff from guys that were getting out or reloading. I also got a good supply of case holders for common rounds. The Wilson tool is well built and delivers good results when it is...

    Cases cleaned with vinegar turn brown given enough time even after repeated rinsing. Acids do react with the oxide layer on the surface of the part loosening/removing the crud that is on top of the oxide. Citric acid is more effective and longer...

    A lot of nice old guns get parted out on ebay. What happens to the receivers is anyone's guess.
