    I have an 8 pound jug of T680 from the Thunderbird Cartridge Company that I bought 20 years ago to load in my 44 Mag. Is this the powder you are referring to?

    This looks like an interesting proposal. I could unscrew the handle on my old Pacific C press and fabricate a shaft to screw back into its place, with a right angle bolt welded to it with the bolt head projecting so I can just put a click...

    I have been seating primers on my Hornady 007 press with automatic primer feed for at least 30 years now too, with never a misfire. But all my brass was good old American made from Winchester, Remington and Federal. These oddball 9mm Luger and 380...

    But I can tell immediately when I pull the trigger if I have attained "consistent performance" from one of my 9mm Luger pistols. It either fires or it doesn't. When I started loading for these by setting my primers by "feel", I had a 30% non-fire...

    There, this is what I want! Thank you for stating this Dan Cash! My antique 9mm Luger pistols seem to have a high percentage of misfires unless the primers are set to the exact same depth in the cartridge cases. So, we all know if I am using...

    I looked at this tool on the RCBS website, there was no explanation on how the primer insertion depth is adjusted. The RCBS RAM-PRIME that I use is easy to adjust by screwing the device up or down and setting the locknut like you do with a typical...

    I looked at both of these priming tools, the one from 21st Century and the Sinclair tool, and it seems like my RCBS Ram Prime tool is a better solution for far less money. But again, I have to hand load individual primers which I was trying to get...

    Over the years I have been using various methods of inserting primers into cases. Mostly Hornady and Pacific presses, which do not set primers to a precise depth, but only give you a "feeling of pressure" when you hit the bottom of the primer...

    I have a CZ-52 in 7.62x25 that I recently purchased some Starline brass for to start reloading. And looking through my bullet molds, the only one I have in that approximate size is the Lyman 311359, which is a pointed nose mold. Has anybody tried...

    I think both of these presses are really cheap and not worth much money so would keep both of them set up for different operations. But maybe you are not as lazy as I am and enjoy swapping dies and such?
