    The standard primer was the Win standard rifle, the old nickel primers in the white box and the mag primers were CCI. The velocity was a little over 2300 with a 150 gr bullet, not hot at all, maybe not hot enough. Although the mag primer helped this...

    I was working with WIN 760 in a 303 Brit, the loads were modest as I don't thrash my #4. Loads with standard primers were fairly accurate but velocity was a little erratic. When I switched to a mag primer velocity did not really increase but evened...

    beemer replied to a thread Type hardness in Lead and Lead Alloys
    I have bucket of hand set type, I guess its mono type. It's only used to harden WW as it's too hard for boolits. the ones I poured for my 303 Brit would sometimes break off at the case mouth when they hit the feed ramp. I poured some 357's with a...

    Bought it for $25, it's in good shape. I wanted a loader that would size the shells and it has one, on the left back. I gave it a quick cleaning and loaded a few shells and it works great. The bushings threw 18.5 of Green Dot and 1 1/8 shot. It will...

    I was at one of the local antique-plunder stores the other day and spotted a Honey Bair 12 ga loader. I looked it over good and it seemed complete and other than dirty in good shape and it was cheep. Anyone here have any experience with one ? I...

    I bought one new and have always liked it, my primary press that sits beside a Spar T. The primer catcher is a tray that sets on the mounting screw heads, it doesn't work to well but I live with it. I saw a set of punches on Ebay once, the guy...

    beemer replied to a thread Lyman Spar T in Reloading Equipment
    The Spar T is not my primary press but I keep a depriming die and others set up depending on what I am doing. I took it off the bench and mounted a RCBS JR. for a while but missed it so back it went. Sometimes it is set up for 38-357 when working on...
