    Our problems are never God's doing...it is the fallen angel, the devil. He cries when we suffer and fail yet when we ask for help and guidance He listens. Thanks for the lesson....Paul

    Wonder if you used a long cure clear epoxy instead of the shellac / varnish if it would soak in and strengthen them some. maybe same on the inside to seal better. A couple coats would seal from the gourd and maybe make a better barrier. But then...

    The rule of thumb for the older powder in 308 ( these powders were temp sensitive in like sole of the newer powders) was for every 10* increase above or below your base temp was good for 1 min at 600 yds. I set my ammo in the shade under my stool...

    On enlarging the die holes 1 1/2" die from 7/8" you need .3125 min wall thickness from the 7/8" die to the edge and from each hole to the next. This is bare minimum and dies will touch with no room for lock rings. Moving the holes in towards center...

    Yep two different reamers. I'm used to finish reamers used in the machine shops for preccision finishing of holes. I believe your talking about what I know as a bridge reamer to completely different animals. Different cutting angles and flute...

    I get bits chopped out of me whenever I use my 45ACP R1 Remington. I want to use it in Wild Bunch, so I am sort of stuck with the spur hammer. I'm thinking of either shortening it or placing a small cut across the top of the spur, bending the spur...

    I started with a RockChucker in 1981 (if you don't count the Lee Loaders I started using in the late 60s) and still have it. I feel that the RC is a lot quicker generally to use (especially with the RCBS Case Kicker I have). One thing I do like...

    A true reamer can be sharpened but its unique. The end is cut off and the beveled cutting edge is reqround and relieved removing the side wear and when relieved a new cutting edge. We would hone the scrapping sides to make .0005 under sized reamer...

    First step is to deprime then clean so the primer pocket is cleaned also. I like a case clean all over, inside and out.

    The 2700 lbs of range lead in my shed didn't come a hand full at a time, but it represents lots of sweat and sore muscles. When you spend the effort and there is little reward, you learned not to do it like that again, at least not in the same...

    My brass is stored for years in moisture-proof containers and looks like new when I'm ready to load it. Not just the outside, but the primer pocket and inside as well. It may not matter to most and that's OK. I don't load for anybody but family,...

    a 3/8" pilot hole is over loading a true reamer. Reamers are meant to remove small amounts of metal .015 or less. The 1/8" your trying to remove is way more than a true reamer is meant to. At work we drilled a pilot hole the size of the point web or...

    For some cases a simple fixture could be made and the caliber stamp Xed out with a appropriate sized metal stamp. In the case of 9X18 a number 8 stamp might blend well enough to turn a 9 into an 8 even. My reformed cases are enough different from...

    Not much. Shooting a duplex load of 4227+860, it's running the Accurate PP bullets 2300 fps with around 1.5 moa accuracy. I really like it, great fun, but it seldom gets used because I am either shooting a match or playing with some sort of black...
