    My first was a Remington 700 ADL bought in 1970 and it shot 120 grainers just fine, used surplus 4831 at 52 grs, second was a Winchester Feather Weight bought in 1990 and it too shot the 120's fine. Are you sure you are not thinking of the .244...

    I don't have anything to offer, other than my support of the opinion that the wood trays are far superior. I'm clinging to the 10 or so that I have. If you have even the smallest drill press, you can buy a forstner bit of the appropriate size and...

    I don't have a 455 so I can not comment on them. I do have 452's and 453's. Between the two I prefer the 452. I don't care for the set trigger on the 453. The stock 452 trigger becomes a thing of beauty with the YoDave trigger kit...

    I do large batches (about a 100lbs). that way when I find some load that shoots well I have lots of the exact same alloy to cast them with. I also keep alloys like 5050 ww/pure 25/75 ww/pure, #2 (well my approximation of it) and 5050 ww/lino in big...

    I only reload for my 480 Ruger and for now only have a two cavity 435gr mold so the pot empties fast. Cast about 50-100, Reload 50 at a time. Going to get a 335gr mold to save on lead and plink with.
