    EDG replied to a thread .50-90 in Single Shot Guns
    Most nay sayers have never tried to load smokeless in a 50-90 or much of anything else. If it was left up to them they would never shoot smokeless in a 45-70 either. I guess they still ride a mule to the range wearing buck skin pants. The same...

    What do you mean that you get about 6 loads? What is your criteria for rejecting or discarding a case? For a bottle necked case setting the length of the resized case to the same exact length as your chamber or about .001 less yields very long...

    Compound implies multiple force multiplying features. A plier effectively has only a single movable lever attached to an identical handle which could be called a static member. There is nothing multiple or compound about it. It is no more compound...

    I sure do. I formed and sized cases for decades just like everyone else and sometimes had small variations in sized cases that were not readily explainable. Those variations would be the occasional case that was difficult to close the bolt on. I...

    You are kidding right? That RCBS JR2 not a compound linkage. That is the only linkage that the RCBS JR ever had. Apparently you need to learn what a compound linkage looks like so you can identify one when you see it. I have to ask what do you...

    The Hollywoods, simple linkage C presses, and the RCBS Jr do not use compound leverage.

    Any of the bigger compound leverage presses will work ok with the right technique. If you have a press that will FL resize a .50 BMG case it should be easy to size most hunting and target rifle brass. When I get cases that require more than a...

    Part of the cost of using once fired brass are the losses that come from culling of defective cases. Buy large lots of a single headstamp from a police range and sort it. There will invariably be some odd headstamps anyway. Toss out the defects...
