    pull the pro 1000 off the bench and burry it 5 miles away and then burry the bullet feed 5 miles in the other direction. Taking that stress out of your life will probably add 5 years to it:veryconfu

    I would have thought that when the powder ignited the case would blow out to chamber size before the bullet even moved and surely quick enough that the bullet wouldn't have melted and left lead that close to the case neck. Bullet would about have to...

    I picked up another Trapdoor this week. Accuracy is exceptional for three shots, then I would get fliers as the barrel heated a bit. It appeared I may have a slight bit of tipping of the bullet on target. I wonder how much diameter is gained by...

    I usually run 500 at a time through the bulge buster then load them on the progressive press. If I was using a single stage (GOD FORBID) id size them first with a carbide sizing die. It would just make them that much easier to run through the bulge...

    ive smoked carp and suckers and its really good. No large mouth for me though. Most of the lakes that have them up here are a bit warm and the fish are full of grubs. Fun to catch but they get thrown back.

    We have resident deer on the farm. We let our 18 acres go back wild other than a path I keep mowed back to the rifle range. Plenty of folks round here turn up their noses at our property. Saplings and briars ain't attractive I spose. I've seen...

    I was thinking a brass and bullet swap box. Each bag of brass should have a note with origin and info such as range brass or times fired. And each bullet bag should contain any pertinant info like alloy, size and lube.

    RP, I probably got about half that many. Ain't got a picture yet or any sort of display. I mostly collect along the lines of older smokeless sporting cartridges. Some BP cartridges also interest me but I don't have any.
