    I never weighed a bucket?, but the UPS tag on a TRUCK brake drum is #107, I pick them up by myself all the time, the buckets of wheel weight I bring home require two guys to put in the back of the pickup.

    Mine is on the Strong Mount, it's clamped to the bench with two swivel feet Vicegrip C clamps, I was trying to decide where to drill the holes and just never did, snap snap and it's mobile!, works like a champ.

    I did it that once and will NEVER do it again!, the punch height is fairly specific and if it's off it won't feed! I don't know why everyone whines about the primer feed?, if you press the shell plate down onto the feed cup before you tighten the...

    wrench man replied to a thread SHOT Show Marlins in Leverguns
    I'll believe it when I see it!?, they put out a new 1894 44 Mag at the LGS a few weeks ago, it has the barrel clocked OFF, the tang to stock GAP could hold a few tater chips for a snack later! and blaming the former Marlin employees for the down...

    Hornady is selling component brass right now, it and the "LeveRevolution" brass are standard, so it's FAR from extinct.

    I picked up a partial set CHEAP solely for the crimp die, in fact it had two seat/crimp dies in the box, so I got one each for my 38Spl and 357 dies sets.:drinks:

    I had JES punch out a 30-30 to 356Win, MUCH easier than going with the 35 Rem conversion, I've got plenty of 356 Win brass so I never tried using 308 brass? The Hornady 35 Remington brass is standard, it's NOT short like the other...
