    Except for the shotgun ones, I've never reloaded ammo on a Lee Loader. I have a few sets of them, guess one day I'll have to get one out and give it a whirl.

    I actually don't care much about this. I doubt either of us will ever see or use this powder unless we are in RSA. I've shot matches in RSA and have known a few people that are on some of the correspondence regarding this powder. I have seen...

    MOA replied to a thread Casting for Glock17 in Cast Boolits
    Yes sir, that's just what I did in 2010 or 11, got two Wolf barrels for my 19's. The factory bbls have never seen cast. I've been running these RCBS 115 RN. So far my Gen 2 likes them ok.

    Tru-dat, when you have a stack of these on the bench I always let someone fire a few if they desire. Amazing the look they have after the first round. 400 Jeffrey next to a ought six. :bigsmyl2:

    I am trying very hard to not get too far down this hole. There isn't any charcoal of any kind in this product. In a thread on 1800's era gun powder it is out of place. What we call black powder has three constituents. The Sannadex product...

    I've got lots of books that span from the early sixties to current. But I too have started to use and look at what is online now. I also know that it could be offline just like that too. So, I went down to the local Wally and got myself about four...

    MOA replied to a thread opinions please in Leverguns
    Well where it's a bit wet I like a stainless lever. And I think if you can find a Marlin XLR in 45-70 you have half the battle done. Low mount scope IF you want it scoped, not a light rifle, but not a very heavy one either. It does come with Ballard...

    I plan on keeping the Remington as is..but, The Husqvarna (which I think has the better steel ), is the one that is ripe for a rechambering. I started right off with the 50 Alaskan brass for the 12,7x44R because it can be used as is. Also,...

    I use it a lot in cast rifle loads and have found this to be true. Ten grains seems a good load for a lot of things, kind of like Unique. In my experience, using the rotor that throws five grains and throwing two charges per round works a lot...

    The small town we lived in for years and still own a house in has its sewage lagoon south of town, but probably isn't any farther, maybe not as far, from where we lived than this proposed one will be from us here. I never would have noticed that...

    I bought one of these a couple of years ago in good shape for about 135 bucks. Still haven't set it up, I need to do that.

    I'm sure enough. RSA can not get regular shipments into the country. It is politics. Not transportation or price. Over the last two decades RSA has had many dry spells between shipments getting into the country. There were periods of...

    I have two 12,7x44R rollers. One is of Remington manufacture for the Swedish military and the other is a husqvarna also made for the military. I'm thinking of having a good smith ream the Husqvarna out to 50-100, or if the case will chamber, to a...

    If RSA hosts an international match that is the only powder everyone will be using. Teams arriving on airplanes, that would be everyone, is given powder by the host country because you can not fly with enough loaded ammo (eleven pounds) or loose...

    Agree 100% Not BP I think RSA is trying to do the best they can in light of not being able to get in real powder. I don't blame them. I strongly think you will never see any of this powder here in USA. I could be wrong.

    A few years ago, the wife and I bought an 18 acre place just outside a town of about 1500 people (maybe three miles out of city limits) which had a house and shop on what was a rock quarry 60 years ago. Perfect for a guy like me as it is wooded and...

    I would stay away from the 32-40 Ballard and BP loading. It is a very steep learning curve. Maybe even cure you from shooting BP completely.

    I think with the great availability of Starline 38-55 2.125" brass, and the ease of reforming it would meet the need for completely correct size brass, the only down side is the head stamp is incorrect. For me, a minor detail as the two cases are...

    I have a lot more questions than answers about the RSA powder and in the period from 2016 until now this is the first I have heard of it. I would guess they are not trying to export their powder and I can not imagine building a powder plant just for...
