    I'd keep the Lyman. maybe you wanna try a different lube some time? Also, there will be no doubt you will want it for something, at some point. Myself, I prefer to use a Lyman for certain types of Rifle boolits, especially the tiny 22 cal...

    I've found those two screws that act as slides see more than their share of abuse...if they aren't lubed, they can bind. I have oiled them with a tiny amount of Bullplate or Synth two cycle oil. I also lube the adjustment screw, As the alloy level...

    My thoughts as well. I try to thoroughly label everything. My Daughter and SIL currently shoot what I reload, so after my passing, I suspect they'll trust the ammo in my stash. But as I type this, I just had a thought, that I should be sure to...

    I have always been a Bowhunter first and a gun Hunter second, and as such, a video I saw in the '80's made a profound impact on me. In two tenths of a second, a whitetail can drop a full body height. I've seen video of a deer completely swapping...

    That's about how I made my funnel. Good idea about polishing the interior of the drop tube, I can still do that to mine.

    And gets rid of spiderwebs! The funnel I made has steeply sloping sides so helps keep the powder going down. I also just found a set of 3 different sized stainless funnels, largest one is close to 3" diameter. Found them on eBay for $4.00 for the...

    If I was loading for a competition, I'd dump the old powder. If I was loading for non-competition target shooting ammo, I'd load what's left in the hopper, and keep that small batch separate and shoot it separately (separate targets/groups) from...

    I've had a few of both, '73 and '92 but never one in 45 Colt as it is not an original cartridge to either rifle. I've had them in all four of the other major cartridges, 44-40, 38-40, 32-20 and 25-20. I'm so fickle as to what is "my favorite", I...

    I don't load semi-auto cartridges nor do I own a progressive. However, I'll work to salvage a case but for an entirely different reason. I shoot a lot of cartridges that the only way you get them is to form and/or turn them. I might have 1/4 hour...

    Depends on what you intend for it. I have witnessed a Ruger pc9 shoot a 4" gong boringly at will at just over 250 yards. Had something to do with the shooter as he is a great shot, but that rifle will flat shoot when dialed in. I WILL own one if...
