    Thank you very much alamogunr. I appreciate your effort. I showed the list to my wife for maybe a Christmas present this year, but she just frowned at me and went upstairs to her reloading room library and brought down most of the above and told...

    So, can you list the books the author considered to be "essential to his library"? Many of us can't afford a subscription to Handloader Magazine. And I don't mind purchasing reprints of older books that are a valuable resource of reloading...

    I am with this guy ^. I have to lube the button to swage easily and I use a big press (RCBS Ammomaster). I think you might have trouble with a smaller conventional press doing this.

    Thanks for your suggestion, but buckshot is not legal for deer here in Missouri. Good suggestion though. Our main deer season ends today so that gives me some time to "work" on the rifle. Break it in and load some 150 grain jacketed bullets to...

    Well, I have decided to resolve the situation completely (although the grandson just showed up to go hunting with the "rifle"). I have decided to work on my collection of antique Pacific shotshell reloaders, especially the DL-110 I just purchased...

    Well, I appreciate all the responses to this situation. The "Grandson" is 25 years old now, and weighs about 350 pounds at 6'-2" tall. But not much of it is muscle. He came to live with his grandmother and I when he was about 12 years old, and...

    Every year I have been lending my grandson a 303 British No. 4 MK 1 for deer hunting with 200 grain 314299 Lyman cast gas checked bullets over 30.0 grains of IMR-4895. With this rifle I can easily put 5 rounds in 3" at 100 yards. This year he shot...

    I've also noticed that everybody seems to be dismantling every piece of reloading equipment or set of dies and selling all the individual pieces for lots of money. If you want to purchase a complete 4-die set of 310 tools you have to buy about 30...

    Me and a grandson are preparing to hunt deer in another week here in Missouri. He is using a 303 British in a No. 4 MK 1 using 30 grains of H-4895 under a Lyman 314299 at 200 grains gas checked and I am using an 1885 Browning in 45-70 shooting a...
