    Well I hope you kept the No. 3. I'm going to get another No. 1 and re barrel it to 45-120, got to put a 6 lb octagon barrel on it. :-O

    I use Accurate Molds version of the 314299, but mine has a flat point for hunting. Pushed to 18-1900 fps I think it would be adequate for Black Bear at 50-75 yards. 18 gr 2400 or 26 gr RL7 should get you close. Here's an article that might be...

    You may want to consider either getting a bullet with a flat nose or casting some of those with a soft point. There's a thread in the stickies about how to do it. IMR4895 has worked well for me in .308 and .30-40 Krag. Might want to give some a...

    Does Buffalo Arms have them? - maybe not or I guess you have a place to buy them and wouldn't be asking.

    Time to find another gun smith. Any "gun smith" who was so ignorant as to never have heard of a Unertl scope, I wouldn't trust to do anything.

    Don't do it. Much as I like 99s and the .38-55, a better option if you want a .38-55 is to find a donor Marling or Winchester.

    I looked at the CH4D web site and didn't see one of that thread size. I may call them today and ask. Worst case, I'll just set this up with a three die set and call it good.

    Thanks, but that manual doesn't have this particular press, just the eight holer. I'll look around today for a manual for this press, maybe call Lyman.

    I like the old steel Weavers too. I'm always on the lookout for them at good prices.

    I went to Wichita to visit Dad and picked this up while I was there. It does have the shotgun die in the large hole and something else in the opposite hole which I think is for seating wads. Bottom line, it's in good shape and ought to work well,...

    The Lyman 457193 is Lyman's copy of the 130 or so year old Marlin 45 GOV bullet design. An under sized one is useless. Sorry you have such a mold. A correct sized one is a good bullet for the 45-70 in Lever rifles. There are many that come up...

    Your Rifle is fine for this game. You have to knock them down and I am sure the old time standard load or today's equivalent would knock the rams off the target stands. Reactive targets are fun! Not that shooting at rounds rings on paper is...

    Funny how brand loyalties work. There are some aspects of life where I am pretty brand loyal, but not reloading. I have a lot of stuff, molds, dies, presses, scales, sizer lubers, trimmers, etc., and they run the whole gamut of makers. And...

    My old Savage 110 in .223 is definitely a long action, I think Savage only made one length back then. Works fine and has always been a good shooter. No short bolt stop, it travels the full length back.

    I was taking the OTC Nexium daily and it works. Prior to that, I drank a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water daily and it seems to help too. A few months ago, I heard about some health benefits of taking coconut oil...

    Well my project was to start cutting out loading blocks using the CNC router we have at work. Coding all the programs took about three days and we started to run our first 5x10 sheets yesterday. Still have about a week to go and then some of these...

    ............It'd be fun to know their history, but they're similar in design if not in detail to bunches of similar types offered for over 200 years. Since they're not marked as to the manufacturer, probably the only way to know for sure would have...

    I'd likely opt for a 20 gauge in something like this. I bought an old Mossberg 835 a few years ago that I can use if I ever need a cannon, it'll fill that role better than most shotguns anyway. I've begun really appreciating guns that are light...

    That is some interesting history to say the least. I assume made of cast iron? Neat stuff.

    Keith, well just a side note since you mentioned making your own lube. I'm becoming a Vendor Sponsor. One of the products we are making is a CNC base that is cut to fit a section of schedule 40 PVC and a 3/8th inch length of aluminum rod for the...
