    Yes it will feed the very long bullets used by the long range competitors out of a 308 length mag. With the .260 using the same long bullets the mag runs out of space.

    Thanks gents! Sounds like its gonna be a good candidate for a foray into revolvers! Thanks Guesser, the sight regulation with 158 grain boolits is great to know. The Elco mold I have drops a HP around 152 grains so should be close enough....

    Just like the title says, anybody got one of these? My grandfather had one and I offered my grandmother $400 for it. She took a couple of weeks to think about it and said I could buy it if I still wanted it. I don't take things from family members...

    I believe NOE picked up some of the RanchDog designs. Give them a looksee. They will also cut a mold to the diameter you want with your ally factored in.

    I use the Lyman Universal. It can be had as a manual crank or as a drill crank. It is accurate and it uses carbide cutters that last. I bought a Lyman hand tool with carbide chamfer and deburring bits that I chuck in my drill. It all works pretty...

    Id wait for the battery to go dead. Then Id get either a rare earth magnet and attach it to a string and pull it up or one of those extendable arms with a magnetic tip that mechanics use.

    In the early 1900's it was very common for competition shooting. It greatly reduces fouling. Most BP competitions do not allow it today. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?137201-Black-powder-duplex-loads

    No disagreement. I love the.17 Mach 2. My favorite is a Magnum Research semi-auto with a Kidd two stage trigger, I also have the .17 Mach 2 in CZ's, Sako Quads and Contenders. That doesn't change the fact that the cartridge is almost dead. ...
