    What kind of reloading press would you need to resize those 20 mm brass? And how expensive are the reloading dies? I do have several of those army surplus ammo boxes for 20 mm rounds that work well on my shelves in the reloading room.

    That looks identical to the loads I use, with absolutely no feeding or shooting issues in my S&W model 1917. Its the most accurate cast projectile I have ever used in that firearm. So I cast plenty of them!

    Shotgun powders are very fast burning similar to small pistol powders. I don't believe you want to try 50 BMG or 20 mm cannon powders in a shotgun that will only take 12,000 PSI pressures. But I have used 20 mm cannon and 50 BMG powders in most...

    I always used my similar Pacific scale without any oil for dampening. Then, I decided to find out what oil would do for me and bought a small bottle of "sewing machine oil" from WalMart. What a difference that made. Measurements went much faster...

    After sorting through the same problem with range-pickup brass for my pistols and rifles for years, I have come to the conclusion that junk brass results in junk loads. If you want loads that produce similar accuracy's, pressures and velocities...

    I only use an old two-die set of Pacific dies to reload my 32-40 converted brass for an RCBS 32-170 FNGC. But I expand the case mouth using a Hornady 338 Win Mag tapered expander adjusted to reach the mouth of the 32-40 case.

    I am in the process of butchering up my first deer this season, and it is getting more apparent that I need a new set of skinning and butchering knives. Can anybody recommend a particular make of butchering knives and sizes needed for deer...

    I don't have a functional chronograph either, but last year I killed 3 deer with my John Wayne Winchester Model 94 in 32-40 shooting the RCBS 32-170 FNGC sized 0.321" in Fiocchi converted 30-30 brass over Winchester Large Rifle primers and 26.5...
