    Note to self: start looking for a old style LCT press as a backup. I have some Cabela's points, they probably have one on the shelf at my local store.

    Looks like the Ram is smaller. I wonder if the Ram is two piece, like the older ones

    Just connect it one side to Neutral and the other side to the "LOAD" of the SSR. OR are you asking for a full wiring diagram for your system ? If so, it will be similar to the many furnace diagrams already posted in the PID sticky and other PID...

    These tacos are small, but each one is wrapped with two (palm of hand sized) corn tortillas and enough meat-n-stuff to fill both. So, I always grab them with just the one tortilla and as I eat it, about half the meat-n-stuff falls out and into the...

    I didn't realise yours was a 223. Mine is a 308. My mate has a 223 and it was a pita until he had about three hundred rounds through it and it settled down and now shoots well stock. His barrel was probably very rough and needed a bit of traffic to...

    I have the same rifle 18Bravo. I had barely run the barrel in before it ended up at the back of one of my safes. I have been meaning to drag it out and get it going. I have bought one of those new fangled roller triggers for it. Hopefully, I will...

    Honestly, for that reason, I am amazed that Lyman still produces Load data, but I am surely glad they do.

    Hello Slide, I agree with you 110%. Avenger442 is doing a great job with this. What is now very pleasing is, that I have stated many times, that the Hi-Tek coating, is not what fails or not performs, but all engineering areas require to be fixed...

    I needed a larger sizing button for one rifle. Called RCBS, told them what I needed, and they sent a new one no charge.

    waksupi replied to a thread Trapdoors in Black Powder Cartridge
    Even if the bore looks like a sewer pipe, go out and shoot it a couple hundred rounds. You may be surprised just how well it will shoot. I've seen some pretty miserable bores perform quite well. Pretty is as pretty does.

    I shoot with guys, some of which have gawdawful big selections of old original BPCR's to shoot. Every one of us, if we are just going out to shoot for fun, take a Trapdoor. I saw Kenny Allaman win the 1000 yard match with one years ago down at the...

    Give that mold 5 or 10 casting sessions to break in and develop some oxides on the surfaces, and while doing so, you prefect your technique with the "RG" system, as it takes some gettin' use to. Then you'll be casting HPs as fast as FN.
