    Not a firearm misplaced but some extra components. I built a switch barrel 1911 in 45ACP and 400 Corbon (both government model slide setups) a few years back and recently added a Combat Commander 45ACP bull and barrel and slide to the setup for my...

    I'm dealing with this very issue with a new AR10 upper in 6.5 creedmoor. My other reloads for my Mauser 98 chambered in that same caliber has no problem loading the cartridges but the new rifle is a no-go with the older reloads while new cartridges...

    discount the varied lengths of the cases, I was eyeballing the trim back to 57mm with a 22-250Rem Lee Pilot (I have a custom-length Lee .22-57mm pilot coming soon) but the key takeaway from the image is the scoring of the necks by the RCBS seating...

    Hornady isn't making A-Maxs anymore so they soon will go the way of the Herter's Wasp-Waisted Bullets...You might want to develop a load with a different bullet soon. That said, I loved their 6.5mm 100gr A-Maxs and I am not a fan of their new ELD...

    I'll upload a photo tonight of the impact that the reloading dies have on the reformed 7x57 brass. Accuracy was horrendous past 25 yards with cast bullets as I think I was sizing them down during the seating process.

    Let me know whenever you tire of the experiment with this cartridge as I've been looking for a 38-45 Clerke 1911 barrel for a long time also. CH-4D does have dies if you can't find any local.

    Trying to decide between inside or outside neck reaming for a 22-6mm Remington wildcat I built this summer. To form the brass, I'm going to need to ream the brass necks of my x57mm length cartridge cases to fit the RCBS Wildcat 22-6mm Remington...

    bruce drake replied to a thread Psa ar 10 in Factory Rifles
    I bought a PSA Gen 1 Lower receiver and Gen 2 Upper receiver last year when they were on sale and then proceeded to build it as a 308 Win first before changing the 20" barrel out when a 20" 6.5 Creedmore barrel came available (I love 6.5 caliber...
