    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...

    They may not have people that are cross trained. There are few Lymans and many Weavers and different people work on different makes.

    Iron Sight quotes most people 14 to 16 months. I would never ever send anyone anything that took that long to turn around.

    Be careful buying cheap scopes for any autoloader that will be shot a lot. The banging of the bolt back and forth will knock the cemented lens cells apart. About 25 years ago at the dawn of the AR craze a guy had one at the range and he was having...

    For more consistent sizing you can size bottle neck cases once slowly then partially with draw from the die and spin the case about 1/3 turn. Size again slowly with about 3 to 4 seconds of dwell at the top of the stroke. Repeat the sequence for a...

    I bought a hundred rounds of USGI 30-06 ammo in the early 1970s and everyone of those cases had off center flash holes. In order to avoid the inevitable bent decapping rod I just removed my decapping pin and knocked out all the primers with a Lee...

    You have to stand by the fact that speed is not necessarily superior too. You cannot miss fast enough to win a gun fight so to speak. I do know that I produce cases with a much more consistent shoulder position than any factory. I know this...

    If you examine the drawings for SAAMI standard chambers and ammo both have tolerances. The shortest acceptable ammo in the longest acceptable chamber can result in the ammo being .010 shorter than the chamber. It is pretty routine for new...

    Anyone with any experience with the .35 Remington and the .30-30 knows they will find a large percentage of backed out primers with full power factory loads. These backed out primers get that way from moving the shoulders backward even though the...

    The shoulder can be moved in either direction depending on what firing process produces the most force - the fired primer or the fired powder charge in the case. It is easy to see shoulders blown forward in the .303 British because the chambers are...
