    Sorry to read this. Hate to read these actually. But part of life is death and none of us make it “out” alive. I dread the day. Have experienced it it’s never fun and the current is expected to be the worst. My first “lap dog” 19# Lahasa and my...

    I get same in one Marlin ‘94. My newer Cowboy dosent do it. So I agree generous chamber. I have shot some healthy RUGER loads pushing 300’s to 1600 to see it. Worst is brass probably won’t last as long. But I have had that rifle for over twenty...

    Well that’s a big one! My first attempt set at 400 left a pool of lead with a couple lumps. Ironically it was red HF and looked omanis. Temps on these cheap ovens can be all over the map

    I like my 222/20 better than my later, bigger & heavier 223/20 Savage. That 222 is a earlier model and much lighter. Shoots great too regulation is MUCH closer than the 223/20. Not much difference as the 223 is a 1:14 so it won’t shoot heavier than...

    You should not be seeing leading. What’s the dia? Hardness with PC at sub 1k is moot. I have shot dead soft to straight Lino PCd zero issues multiple Glock bbls. Are you crimping heavily? Said before but your sure the PC is cured...

    I loaded my oven with lava rock. It helps allot with even heat but needs to be warmed. So I run the oven full timer before first bake. I keep two baskets on top and warm bullets in there before coating. It absolutely helps! My bullets make it just...

    Bottom line is 99% of distances where a red dot is used will not see an appreciable difference. Have t ya seen them mounted at a 45 angle on MSR setups? If it really bothers ya, you have a dot with a tube 1” or 30mm or a pic rail, levels are...

    Two more “new” ones for me this week. Both RCBS. First is a 32-98 SWC and the second is a eBay find 45-300 FN. It’s covered in surface rust. But inside blocks is clean but one spot. Hoping evapo rust cleans them. CW

    This mold is a Accurate 31-135s. It was designed expressly for the RUGER Single six to fit it’s shorter cylinder. I have t yet tried it in the 32/20 but I will soon! Froggy, 7.3 showed ever so slightly sticky extraction from the birds...

    I have a MP 359-220 HP mold that’s really showing promise. I just got a 358429 HP. It’s a lil lighter than what I want as a hunting bullet. I have tried a LBT 220 and a Lyman 358315 and RCBS 200-FN. none shot very well. Not well enough for...

    If older they are M8 scopes. IMHO A FAIR Value is 100-150$ If in good shape. If they are newer Leupold they are FXII and still worth about the same maybe 150-175. CW
