    Stabilized wood for the body. Then a plastic preform for the insert. Then you decide how many reeds it will have. I like a double reed for the hunting we did. Never had the lungs for the single reed.

    I get same in one Marlin ‘94. My newer Cowboy dosent do it. So I agree generous chamber. I have shot some healthy RUGER loads pushing 300’s to 1600 to see it. Worst is brass probably won’t last as long. But I have had that rifle for over twenty...

    Well that’s a big one! My first attempt set at 400 left a pool of lead with a couple lumps. Ironically it was red HF and looked omanis. Temps on these cheap ovens can be all over the map

    I like my 222/20 better than my later, bigger & heavier 223/20 Savage. That 222 is a earlier model and much lighter. Shoots great too regulation is MUCH closer than the 223/20. Not much difference as the 223 is a 1:14 so it won’t shoot heavier than...

    With regards to shooting jacketed bullets what I said was; "simply shooting a couple hundred jacketed bullets with top end loads for the cartridge usually accomplishes the same thing. " "Usually" does not mean always. Like many things we...

    I loaded my oven with lava rock. It helps allot with even heat but needs to be warmed. So I run the oven full timer before first bake. I keep two baskets on top and warm bullets in there before coating. It absolutely helps! My bullets make it just...

    They are just trying to fan the PANIC button again to increase prices. I went around to a bunch of local places last weekend and most are short on powders. They all said the same thing " people are buying as fast as it comes in " So, let the...

    Either of those colors has worked for me either. Some colors simply don’t work shake n bake. I bought two last week green and blue. Blue has always been great for me. But never bought this brand. Wouldn’t coat at all. Left a “frosted” look. But...

    Bottom line is 99% of distances where a red dot is used will not see an appreciable difference. Have t ya seen them mounted at a 45 angle on MSR setups? If it really bothers ya, you have a dot with a tube 1” or 30mm or a pic rail, levels are...

    You can go ALOT higher than that load for 556 pressures. Do a little searching and you can find the data you need. Those look fine as they are. You should find a node with just a little more. 55gr vmax seemed to be 24.3-24.5 in the 5 different 223...

    DO NOT get International. It can only be used for shotguns. They used to have some data but pulled it due to serious pressure issues and erratic ignition.

    Two more “new” ones for me this week. Both RCBS. First is a 32-98 SWC and the second is a eBay find 45-300 FN. It’s covered in surface rust. But inside blocks is clean but one spot. Hoping evapo rust cleans them. CW

    You use a spring to pull the bullet feeder tube down and it stops the dropped bullets.

    "THAT IS WHY I use Bullseye, TiteGroup, WST, or 452AA in the .38 Special, .44 Special, .44-40, .455 Mk2, .45 Colt and .45 AR." I certainly agree with Outpost75s choice of powders. I've been shooting M1917 S&W and Colts since the late '60s and...

    I'm one who disagrees with the philosophy of "always size to the cylinder throats". I did considerable testing using a Ransom Rest and testing at 50 yards along with shooting off other rests at 25 yards found if the bullets were larger than .002 -...
