    I have an old s/c Lee mold that I bought in the late '70s. It has pins that hold the blocks to the handles, and when it gets good and hot, the pins try to escape. They haven't fallen out all of the way yet, but it sure is annoying, and pushing them...

    Yes, it helps. In a defensive situation you probably won't even hear the firearm going off, but with all that you must be aware of you may not even notice the recoil. You will notice the ringing in your ears after the situation is settled.

    It's amazing what one can find when they clean up the bench, and after it's done, generally can't find anything again.
