    Bought a used h&g #50 6-cavity and was bright enough to buy a lee #10 pot to feed it. Learned about pre-heating molds real quick on a electric burner. Seemed like I'd just get into a rhythm and the pot would be empty. That lead to another lesson,...

    A cut-a-way of 2 types of 9mm cases. 1 has the "step" built into it. and the other is a standard 9mm case. As jmac2112 stated, standard 9mm cases get thicker/supported in the web area of the case. Longer expanders are for longer bodied...

    FWIW: High end 1911's are absolutely worth owning at least 1 in your life. That being said you'll be hard pressed to have that Nighthawk GA Precision run circles around your TPR or specialist. I'm sure the nighthawk is an extremely high end 1911....

    I sort 9mm brass as well, had issues with the 9mm brass when I 1st started reloading them in 1991?, sorted them ever since. CCI products & ww go in 1 pile (general range use). R-p go in another pile (thinner brass ='s longer bullets) and everything...

    I've used the paco tool for over a decade with excellent results. Mine's a 2 hole .223 & .224, typically I use the .224 to make hunting ammo. Those bullets pictured above hit hard, real hard. Taken many a groundhog with them along with other...

    There's a difference between condenming someone and stating that ruger seeing all the home gunsmithing. The end result is where ruger is at now. The sad part is there are people out there that don't know how to do these things. Along with why have...

    Sorry you feel this way. There's a huge difference between tweaking a firearm and fixing issues that never should of been there to begin with. Affordable doesn't mean having to buy sights to fit the over-sized/sloppy milling, hammer dings/tool...

    The real issue with rugers are the people that own them. They consider rugers a "bargain" compared to other mfg's so they buy them and do a bunch of work on them. Then they talk about what they have done to them & how easy it was along with how...

    I always thought when standard plus was $250 a case it was 1 heck of a bargain/steal considering cci mini-mags were the same price per case back then. For $280 a case you could buy sk pistol match which shot lights out compared to the standard plus...

    The cheap russian ammo/pistol combo allowed a lot of shooter to be able to compete at the state level. Shot countless 1000's of rounds of the steel cased (green box) and brass cased (yellow boxed) jurior ammo in them. The jurior 22lr's were...

    Have the same rifle/223hb. Bought it to see if a cheap rifle ($321 with tax - $50 rebate - $50/sold scope that came with it ='s $221 total). Didn't alter anything, heck never even adjusted the trigger on it. Tested home made bullets made from free...

    Never had any issues with small/thin lands in bbl's. I have a couple of custom 1 in 10 twist bbl's that have extremely small, thin lands for 357's (4" & 6"). They easily handle anything from mild to wild. Some recovered bullets shot from...

    Sometimes it's best to start over. Don't know what type of targets you're using, I like to use square targets with iron sights. Typically the square targets will have 2 squares/contrast (black/white). I don't care what the yardage is that they are...

    Sounds like you have a couple of things going on at the same time. IMHO You have too light/soft/low pressure load Too many coats on your bullets and the coating is failing To much coating that's making you're already short chamber (no leade)...
