    I started back in the late 70's, had a fling going with holy black and CVA front stuffers. Bought a Lee 20 lb bottom pour and hated it. I battled with that thing for 2 months and eventually gave it away to a friend in disgust. I found a cheap...

    I am not that far down that rabbit hole. Mostly I just grab a handful of lubed bullets in my left hand and trickle them in one at a time while my right hand runs the handle. Prefered catch for me is an ice cream bucket hanging on the press...

    I did a full batch of just rice, in the steel liner, it did stick some. Also overcooked it a bit. Our best rice has always been 1 cup of rice one and a half cups of water, I use a ceramic bowl, and do it first so it can soak. Put that on top...

    My main press is mounted on a big heavy bench. But I have a cheap Lee C press mounted under a table close to my casting station. There for sizing and gas checking and that is all it does. Screws need to be tightened. Some bullets I need to...

    I suspect it is all in the sausage. Salt and pepper also help, pepper in particular. My wife and I have been discovering that Cavendish greek seasoning adds a nice bit of flavor to foods that have grown tasteless with age. Might try it.

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Sks in Military Rifles
    The trick I learned on my pair of Mosin's and the SKS, for cosmoline, goo gone and lots of paper towels. Just keep going over it. Once the outside is bare and dry start stripping it down. Work each piece as it comes off. When I was all done...

    Good for the two of you. I got off to a late start, was 44 when I found mine, 21.5 years later it keeps getting better. Takes teamwork, and no quitting. If you are going to do it you have to truly commit to it 150%. I think that very few...

    I suspect a couple of signed, notarized letters would do it. Lawyer is your best bet.

    Well after reading everything Larry had written on the subject. I decided the easy answer was to stock Red Dot in quantity, and not bother with fillers. That being said I did shoot some 20 rounds with dacron, as larry suggested in my Mosin. Got...

    Payment made via Paypal, man I love it when it is easy like that. I have to say I did not think I was ever really going to be able to have a Rem Rolling Block of my own. This is a dream come true. It may not be a collector, but it can dang...

    Never hunted with mine but if I did I would use as large a bullet as I could. I have figured out a method of putting a flat nose on round nose Lee Boolits. So in my case I would choose the Lee .312 185 gas checked, lubed with BLL. I would size to...

    I drooled over several of these. Really tempted by the Rolling Block in .32sw long. But I really don't need another range toy, and I've shot my wad for this month. Great pictures, awesome writeups, best of luck to you sir.
