    Tim If you are loading projectiles that are .365 then they should work. That's what i use. I cut about a half inch off the base so i could use them on the 57 mm cases and i am able to load both cast and jacketed with them/

    Yesterday i annealed all 80 of my Federal cases dried them out and re-tumbled them. This morning i ran them through the FL sizer die and checked each one in the chamber on my rifle. They all chambered and extracted with ease. Federal seemed to have...

    I did make a trip to the hardware store 4mm is to small and 5mm is to big. The existing screw fits into a 10-32 nut but is loose, a 10-32 screw will cross thread in the hole on the bottom of the tang(tried it with a brass screw so as to not damage...

    I have a M33 rolling block and the installed sights are pretty poor. so I was able to buy from a member here a Lyman peep that matches the finish and is the correct height. Now to mount it. The tang screw is long enough but the screw head profile...

    It is not the cartridge length as they have all been trimmed after the FL sizing step. I have the press set so that the end of the stroke actually cams over so to speak. i am going to check a few of my shell holders and see if maybe i got a thick...
