    After I had a " tap & bang" Lee I bought a three hole Lee turret press. I had there or four extra turrets with different dies set up. It was a good press for loading pistol rounds. I foolishly traded it for a Lee O press, which I used until I...

    While looking through some old once fired 30/30 brass I had I found one case that was nickle plated and the headstamp had "76" on it and then the caliber. I think it is Winchester brass, but I don't know for sure. No, I haven't taken a picture of it.

    Well, I wanted it. I'm not trying to make it into a .308. I just kill paper with it. And I'm happy with it. I like my 30-06 A.I. too. It's not about a "bigger hammer" or even a need. No competition shooting, just a relaxing time at the range for a...

    If you want to try it, go on ahead and try it. The worst that could happen is a light ball. It's not like you will be using it against living things, and it should penetrate your target. Have fun and experiment!

    This Saturday I'll be going to the range again. I have a bunch of loads to fire form, both for my 30/30 A.I. and my 30-06 A.I. I don't know if I'll shoot my pistol or not. I AM taking my rests and spotting scope this time. I'll probably shoot @ 50...

    Bullseye powder for Cast practice firings. 4227 for serious rifle jacketed & G/c use. As far as the best brass? Although there are many to consider. I still prefer Federal & Win over all those others including Starline.
