    I just picked up an ATI carbine. Haven't put it on paper yet, but 147 commercial cast (only 9mm I could find in the house) was happily kicking up dirt on the berm at 100 yards when I function checked it. It takes Glock mags, comes with a fancy...

    Remington 1 1/2, per the warning on the box, aren't meant to be used with high pressure rounds like the .357 Magnum and 40 S&W.

    Are these "new to you" previously fired cases? My first thought is they were fired out of a military-style rifle with a "fluted" chamber, such as the H&K G3 series.

    Doggone it! All this talk about 2400 made me rush to the LGS and buy an 8 lb jug. ($175 before tax). My favorite online source had it listed for a little cheaper, but they were out of stock. I think I just proved my own point! :smile:

    There were reports that the ultra-light S&W .44 Magnums, when fired with full power loads, could have the storage lock (AKA the "Hillary Hole") safety system engage from the recoil, thus locking up the revolver and making it useless. Michael Bane,...

    If you bought that 6 lbs, and only 6 lbs, online the Haz-mat fee and shipping would be around $7 a lb. Look at it that way, and $29 a lb doesn't look so bad. I'd rather have some $29 powder than no $22 powder.

    I got a bunch of "once-fired" 38 Special brass from a major online retailer one time. Somebody must have swept out the reloading room at a olde-timey range, as I got wadcutter cases older than I am with the nickel worn off, deprimed cases, belled...

    In my experience, the .44 Special market is a great way for a manufacturer to sell a limited number of guns to a relatively small number of enthusiasts, who snap them up immediately, but then the market is saturated, and sales drop off, and the...

    The more I think about it, the more I like it. If a fellow wants 22-250 performance in a Modern Sporting Rifle, and doesn't want to deal with the issues that go along with an "AR-10" platform, this looks like a nifty solution.

    SSP 45 brass is one of the reasons I don't run my Dillon 550 the way it was designed, empty case to loaded round in one cycle. Now I use one toolhead to produce primed cases, and run another to charge and seat bullets. It is a lot easier to sort...

    Slightly on topic: A friend bought a Marlin 22 Mag autoloader rifle, asked me to check it out for him. I tried three different types of ammo, and only one would feed and eject reliably. I suspect that is the nature of the breed. If it was my 22...
