    OldBearHair, did you ever get up to Huntsville north of you to shop at the Academy store back in the early eighties, when they started carrying firearms and reloading stuff?

    Wow, that's a thought. And just think, I do a little part-time three days a week at a custom cabinet shop. Hmmmmmm. Might have to have a sit down with the boss and see about how we might do something like that so it can be boxed up and shipped via...

    Google RCBS small base reloading dies. Scroll down to FAQ on reloading dies. RCBS provides the answer very adequately, and may even surprise may reloaders on this forum that not just semiautomatic actions are best served with (SB) dies, but also...

    Well I know what you mean about the weather kinda taking over when you can do some casting. I too living in the south wait for winter to arrive to do most of my casting and smelting. The summers here in Mobile are just too wet and humid to do much,...

    Well 6pt, looks like you have your hands full of shotshell loaders. It's a wonder I'm not in the same boat as you, I just love having good loaders. Start out basic and then you upgrade and can't get rid of the old loader. Can always find a reason to...

    True, so true. Over all the years I've been doing this, only once, back in 91-92 did I have a dedicated space for reloading. All of 5 feet counter with storage underneath, and two tall cabinets one on the right and one on the left to keep components...

    6pt. My PW is from the late 70's. Before they were making the tapered final crimp dies. Just model 375. Now if you want 10ga dies it will come with the head attached. You can't just buy the dies, so its likely that there is something different about...

    Here's the response I just got today. Yes, I ship to the US. The shipping charges are calculated when you add the mold to the cart. I would guesstimate a shipping charge of about 135–155 NOK ($16–$18) when the package is sent as a letter...

    Isn't the 357 sig just a 40 s&w with a bottleneck to hold the smaller round? I imagine the round kinda moved around a bit going down the pipe. :-O Well, in reality its a shortened 10mm auto case, and what is kinda strange is the sig is .23mm longer...

    THerbert, One thing you got to keep in mind is the big difference in how the leade and rifling is in a barrel that is made for shooting black powder. Not to say that a modern smokeless rifle barrel cannot shoot black, it's just that when black was...

    Thank you Richard, It is the most favored of my three. I really should start to try and get the 12, 20 and a 410 of the same model and take-down configuration. They aren't anything special collector wise at this time, but who knows what the future...
