    Mine are muffin ingots that are stamped w/ the alloy composition(96-3-1, 96-2-2......) and stored in foot lockers. I'm not to concerned w/ knowing how much I have on hand. When it looks like I'm low I will order another ton.

    I've had no issues using Lee shell holders w/ other brands of dies. They are a more one size fits all approach. But this hasn't caused an issue for me. You can buy Redding Competition shell holder sets for certain cartridges that come in .002"...

    Will have pics up shortly. This is the last one I will rebuild. And the last RCBS product I ever bought. I had the details up but removed them. Suffice to say I've had to many poor outcomes w/ their warranty department. Not trying to be rude...

    They really add up on ARs if you want a QD mount. I don't want QD mounts to pull a scope off and on and have it hold zero. I want them so I can pull the scope off in case of a failure and use the BUIS. I'm currently experimenting w/ one of the...

    I've been able to load to a max of 1.510. That's literally as far as you can go. Unfortunately if you have multiple 327 Fed firearms and want the ammo to work in all of them you have to load to Single 7 cylinder length. Otherwise you will have to...

    I must be the only person that doesn't hear the noise from the spring. Every gun makes a different noise when firing. The AR15 is no different.

    Beam scales are not immune to reading incorrectly. It's true that gravity doesn't lie. But if the poise is bent or if the scale isn't level it won't read correctly. Both types have to be confirmed w/ check weights. Otherwise you have no clue if...

    The answer is no. All of their electronic items are made over seas. Not surprising seeing as how they are part of a large corporation.

    They still aren't back to where they were. But I can find Winchester M22 again. This is the only ammo that functions in all of my 22s. So I'm buying it when I come across it.

    I'm thinking mine are loaded to 1.500. I will check my reloading logs and post tomorrow. I may be loading them slightly over what the manual says is max. I loaded a lot awhile ago and am still shooting them.

    I said I didn't need one because I wasn't going off book. Then I went off book. The LabRadar is worth every penny and then some. Prices will drop as the technology matures. But I find it's an invaluable tool and would have paid more if it cost...

    I believe PACT used to make scales for RCBS. Now they are all made in China.

    The gun "community" is anything but. It's a fractured bunch w/ many niches. The attitude of the tacticool crowd was mentioned. The attitude exists on the other side that if it's not a bolt action w/ real wood then it must be junk. Same goes for...

    That's a brake, not a silencer. All it does is direct the gas. It doesn't reduce the sound.

    What platform are we talking about. Some of my ARs have adjustable gas blocks. One is a three position switch that goes from cycling normally, next position is for running suppressed, and last is no cycling of the action at all. I have no desire...

    Titegroup is the wrong powder for that application. You want a slower powder.

    They should all be exactly the same. I load on a LCT and there is no variance in OAL. W/ cast bullets you have to watch for lube build up In the seating die. As it builds up it can change the bullet seating depth. But this isn't an issue w/...

    If you want to buy a scale that's made in the US w/ as many US made parts as possible then you want a PACT. http://www.pact.com I have two electronic scales that I trust. One is a RCBS Chargemaster. The other is a PACT DPPS. I've had a lot,...

    The Johnson's wax has been discontinued for a long time. The automotive waxes are going to be very different. Someone just tried straight NuFinish and it was a failure.

    No it won't. I don't know what's going on. I haven't updated my iOS or Tapatalk. The save to photos option is no longer there. Tried it on other forums and it's not there either. The option to save to your photo album has disappeared for some...
