    I just made a couple of replies and noticed that they aren't being added to my total. Am I in trouble?

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I also scored the coveted 45th edition of the Lyman reloading manual. I've heard others mention it's one of their favorites and they wouldn't be without it. I've seen them priced stupidly high on the famous auction...

    I'd just use a solution of pure citric acid and water...I think others will add a touch of dish soap disclaimer: I don't use a ultra-sonic cleaner, I just use a old crockpot and solution of pure citric acid and hot water (3 Tblsp to a gallon). I...

    Maybe? The Hutchinson show in late Sept has been a staple for 36 years, known widely as a locally run 300 table show (by the Elk's club) with lots of private dealers, much like the Wells, MN show in March. There is usually a "crocodile productions...

    Myself, I keep it all separate and in it's original form, but I don't have 800lbs of mixed type. If I had 800lbs of mixed type, that's been sitting unused since '75 and I wasn't planning on selling it, then I'd surely think your plan of smelting it...

    You may need to go to a larger diameter. One easy check, will your sized bullet go easily into a fired case? If so, you need more diameter. There should be some resistance when the bullet enters the case.

    A .35 at 200 yards, and 2100 fps works as well or better than a jacketed bullet. At least none I've shot have complained, and are down in 30 yards or less.

    I tried some Hornady 174Gn RN bullets on Sunday. They got 2" groups, but the aiming point on the target was a 1" red dot and not as visible as I'd like with the 6x Leupold. That is the only jacketed bullet I have tried that is close to a reasonable...

    shot the barrel loose? WOW ! Ruger couldn't fix it? WOW ! again. As DougGuy says, .431 seems like the size to use, if it'll fit. Hunting load, I'd use H110, work up a load for your gun, starting at Hodgdon's recomendation for a start load.

    I'm using a very old set of RCBS dies which seem to be a much better product the current new ones. I resize 38/55 brass to 32/40 in one pass. These dies will load any of three different projectiles.

    I have a new Lyman 66WB fitted to my Pedersoli '86 in 45/70, and to say I am very dissapointed with the quality of it would be an understatement. In order to get some semblance of stability I have had to fit 0.010" shimming brass behind the vertical...

    I just ask them to give the barrel a wipe. Every gunshop I have ever asked have a really ratty looking cleaning rod with a brush that's on it's last legs behind the counter. Good enough to move a dust spec or bit of crud anyway. If it is still there...
