    ZBench - Who makes the pinch prime die and press in your picture? I use a pinch trim die on my 22WMR and 17HMR cases in a RCBS press, it is more of a cone than what is in your picture. Use a Corbin press for my swaging operations.

    Anybody have a picture of this press ( Pacific DL-105) ? I am looking at one and am not familiar with them at all. Can you still get parts and what are they worth? Are they dependable or junk? I really don't have a clue Thanks in advance Doug

    9mm. Cheap to shoot and pairs with many of my pistols and have over 10k 9mm bullets ready to load. The .40 would be better at killing things bigger than a coyote, but then I may as well use the .223’s. For me PCC’s are primarily for fun...

    The RCBS and NOE molds require gas checks if cast and lubed. If you are going to Powder Coat; then you will have to give it a try and see. For me, I still gas check all the Cast Rifle Boolits I Powder Coat.

    All guns are fun to shoot except those with heavy recoil....at least for me. We shoot more .38’s in the lever actions and 9mm in the pistols than the other calibers. And they are cheap to cheap as well.
