    Whoa.. Don't poke yer eye out. Smallest boolit I cast is 25 acp, at just under 50 grains. .22 LR is sketchy in my book. But, good luck with it.

    You did well with the video production, keeping in mind the camera, lens, etc. So, let me understand the purpose of those bullets........... You are going to swage lead material into a bullet shape to stuff into a 22 LR case, and that...

    Yessir! I have some from the NOE 311-150 SP mold. That is MY favorite to shoot in my 300 Blackout. Have a bunch of them already cast, lubed and gas checked. I could send you a SFRB of those in exchange for a cup. I don't feel the need for stealth...

    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread cheap dies in Swaging
    The answer to your question really depends on what kind of quality level you want. If you merely want to take a chunk of lead, and smash it into a 45 caliber shape, there are tons of reloading die sets that will get you a result, as JonB points...

    And if you get the CZ try some Wolf Match Target for punching holes in paper. Never used SK but understand it might be the same product in a different box at about the same price (about $6 a box, but worth it at times).

    I have and really enjoy my CZ452s, but if I were looking for an inexpensive tack driver a Winchester 52D would be a the top of my less than custom made list as an economy move. I don't know what they are going for now but expect a 52 with a worn...

    My experience was up to speed was maybe 5 miles an hour. Even so taking the time to deal with them ended up providing a press I wanted for decades and would never pay for new. I probably still have some parts PW sent to me that were incorrect and...

    The Nickel on cases is electroplated onto a brass case. The nickel plated cases are especially designed for law enforcement use. The plain brass cases on a sweaty officers hip for six months would tend to oxidize, and could cause a malfunction. The...

    For my .40"s, I use a 9mm Luger case trimmed down to 380 auto length (I'd use 380's, but they are a bit harder than 9's to find). I use a RCBS Pro Trim, with the hand crank replaced with a TORX screw (and no crank). I put a TORX driver bit in my...

    Great price on a quality wood and steel rifle. When you stretch it out to 50+ yards from the bench after mounting a good scope splurge and try a box of Wolf Match Target. The main problem with a CZ rifle is it is so nice you will want another. ...

    The better bet, in my opinion, is to use the 5.7 X 28 FN brass for making wonderful .308" HP bullets. The 150 gr bullets I make are perfect for my 300 blackout. And, I have made them as heavy as 168 grain, for use in my M1A with 308 Win ammo....

    I'm using the top end of a 223 Rem case as the donor jacket for my 125 grain 9mm bullets. Cut off the neck, and then reduce the body diameter slightly. Then, trim off the body just below the shoulder. Makes amazing XTP style FMJ 125 grain bullets. ...
