    Don't know 'bout Knueter values and such. But supply of lube grooves is low, and need to order more if I can I will, but won't if can't. Though can't 'till won't, I'd like to know what they cost so I can order when I can't, though I'd like to be in...

    Gazz, Primers backing out AND shoulder moving back, while using 12.5 grains of Unique? I shoot fart loads with in my 30-06 (8.5 grains of Bullseye with 200 grain boolit). I do not know what kind of load 12.5 grains of Unique is (sounds pretty...

    Working on the batteries while you were gone should be the end of it, IMHO. Your house, your rules: Goodbye to the grandchild. Growing up can be painful, but still a learning experience. Rules are rules. JMHO. YMMV.

    Guess 454PB has the better and easier way to go. If still confused, try the following: Here is what I would suggest under your circumstances, as it might make your life a little easier. Take your chromebook to a repair facility or someone you...

    Sighted enemy and sank same! This was actually an easy project, but you all already knew that. I ground the die down, chamfered the mouth of it, and it is back in the turret. As to the chamfer, I tried to scratch/cut a plastic Bic pen, a brass...

    Quick answer (the battery is about to run out): I need to increase the clearance between top of boolit and bottom of seating die on my Classic Turret Press (with boolit seated way out to fill chamber throat, and die screwed way in (sic, down) for...

    Thanks to all. I'll have at it myself then. Using the suggestions given, I'll use a lock nut as a guide for flatness, and find something to chamfer with decreasing grits. I'm thinking the chamfering will be the most important part of this to get...

    I need to shorten my RCBS seating die, but I do not have a lathe. I'm pretty sure I can do an absolutely horrible hack job on it with a grinder and then a Deremel tool to chamfer the opening. However... To wit: I'd like to ask if someone on CB,...

    I had some COWW ingots stick in my first aluminum muffin pan as you describe. I think it is the coating on them for baking or ?? Once burned off they work just great. The melting point of Al is 1220*F, so though the heat can weaken Al, I doubt the...
