    The nose profile for the dies I made for my Herters 9 ton press is a RN SWC, I user a 1/4” ball end mill to make the cavity and mad a slight taper so it would realest easily. I may have to make a regular flat SWC nose punch one day soon.

    I actually did what you did. Any of my single stage presses, powder measures, bench primer, Super Swage and trimmers will mount at any of the positions on the bench. Threaded brass inserts are set into the bench top. Presses and swage are on 1/2”...

    Agreeing with what Brewer12345said in #21. No, you will not have to sell an RCBS Pro Melt for half of what you paid. They’re in high demand and we don’t know how long they last yet. Mine is 35-40 years old and has only had the valve and pot...

    This may not be a bit of help but it’s all I have to offer. The only time I’ve had odd readings as when I set the chronograph up too close to the firing line. It was seeing bits of powder and giving very low readings. From that day forward I’ve...

    I have not shot much of them, it takes a lot of time to make them, but the ones I did shoot worked fine.

    Single action air brushes are very easy to use. If you have a compressor that or the HF gun is the way to go. The only controls are air pressure and paint flow. You need 15-35 psi and adjust the paint flow to get a wet application. You’ll need...

    I made a set of dies for my Herters swaging press in .312 that could make 32 cal jacketed soft point bullets using 30 cal half jacket cups. I would think that there would be some made for the 327 and 32 H&R Magnum cartridges, if they are offered in...

    I use a different tool to accomplish the same thing. It may not be completely relevant since it’s for .40. I’ve never had any .45 ACP range brass that was bulged from firing. All .40 range brass gets run through my Case Master Jr. before I will...

    I did the same and it worked very well. It’s highly recommended to use handles. We had a participant a few years ago that thought the sprue cutting handle WAS the handle on Lee six bangers. He said he used gloves but casting got much easier...

    Only limited experience with drilling hollow points but I’ve used center drills. They’re short, stiff and intended for making a starting place for twist drills.

    Check out alligator hemostats. They’re designed to go deep into places and only open at the end. You’re not the only one that hates to lose brass. I spend stupid amounts of time on one piece at times. I can have 1500 pieces of easily...

    I’m not a metallurgist but I do play one in my reloading room. As I understand it from those that know more than I do about it, the cooling rate is what allows boolits to frost. The frost is apparently the crystalline structure of the antimony...

    This smoker is constructed of 3/16”-1/4” plate and the counterweight for the lid is a Browning Buck and Doe of 1” plate. You guys are right; not replaceable.

    Thanks to all. You helped cement my gut feeling that I should keep the heavy smoker. SWMBO looked at the comments and agreed. Never hurts to have her on board.

    David is my name and I shoot an STI Edge which STI calls a 2011 design. It’s a double stack pistol based on the 1911. It’s the gun in my avatar. Mal Paso, I had noticed that another Carmel resident had done well with the moniker. Nueces,...

    Dropping COWW into melted lead (bad idea, btw) is very different from dropping boolits into water. COWW can get water between the steel clip and the lead WW. It is hard to get rid of that water. Dropping cold (100 is still cold) WW into a...

    If you encounter that problem again you might take a look at the intersection of the ramp and the chamber. I've seen a lot of barrels where those two machined surfaces were not blended which leaves a sharp edge. The sharp "corner" will dig into...
