    It may be more feasible to put the two rams in a lathe and cut one down in diameter and thread it, and drill the other one and tap it. Easier to make them line up pretty close as opposed to welding and having them flex. As far as that goes you...

    I have used this 200 grain bullet for the last 25 years and always had good performance and easy deer kills with it. Round nose or not it always seems to work. I like it in my French MAS 36 as the sites are good and the deer are easy to hit out to...

    NO eBay links, ever. Thanks Pressman. I apologize and should have known better. Sorry to everybody about my improper actions with a reference to a possible source for the parts.

    You know there is nothing wrong with an aluminum press. After all, they make airplanes out of it now too. I've heard the cast iron airplanes didn't fly real good.

    I size .458 caliber 520 grain bullets for a 45-70 without much trouble with an RCBS LAM-II sizer/lubricator including installing gas checks. I don't believe it will take much additional effort to size .510" diameter bullets. I use an RCBS Ammo...

    Normally a 70 grain bullet runs at about 3000 feet per second, so just for round numbers if we shot a bullet that weighed 3x70=210 grains we could probably push it to almost 3000fps/3=1000fps, or just under the speed of sound. And still might...

    I have both a 307 Winchester and a 356 Winchester rifle (Model 94 Big Bores), and both cases are more like a semi-rimmed case. I guess so similar to the rimless cases of 308 and 358 that both of them work fine through my rifles also as the...

    I have had trouble firing reloads in two of my foreign made guns. The first was a pistol in 380 and the present pistol I am trying to reload for is in 32 Auto. I purchased some Hornady jacketed bullets for this gun and they measure 0.311" with a...

    Thanks for your help Pressman. The tape on the bottom of the scale pan seems to be at much a temporary solution. I like your idea of making a new pan hanger and adjusting it to a correct balance. Maybe I should try one of those off of one of my...

    Thank you very much Pressman. I finally found a small screw (3/16x32 threads per inch) and about 1/2" long that screwed into that hole in the end of the balance bar brass cylinder on the right. But it made the bar immediately fall to the bottom...

    I wonder if WalMart has anything similar? I like this idea as all of mine are just in a zip-lock bag now and I have to go through the entire bag to find the one I need. Always?
