    The only reason why the press needs to hang over the edge of the table is to clear the ram. If the press is elevated 6" you can have it mounted farther to the rear. This is what I do with my plate mounting system. If you can imagine a Marlin...

    I have never seen such a thing as that pendulum thingy. I wonder which lawyer Lobbied for it? It probably can be removed and I would think that Mossberg would provide instructions on how to do it. Randy

    Bushnell TRS 25 $60-100 depending on source or the new TRS26 which has a much longer battery life.@$150ish. Both of these sights are excellent bang for your buck and I have 6 and none have burped or farted. Had one on my RGS77 in .308 for a...

    I got to this thread late but Artful already showed the video of my Hand Press which takes of a lot less space than anything I have seen on this thread so far. I started out in 1976 with my Rock Chucker mounted to a 2x4' piece of 3/4" plywood...

    Thanks Ed, I saw that and was hoping the cast weight of 241 gr was an error but appears it is not. I want something in the 220 gr range. I presently have the bullet pictured below but it comes out 235 gr in my 2t/3a/95L alloy.

    Not sure why a 9mm is difficult to load for, many of us load thousands of them & it's the #1 reloaded handgun caliber out there! Find a 9 that fits you & you will be very happy with how it shoots & there's lots of very good ammo on the market...

    FE mine has 5000+ rounds thru it. The gun is just fine, it just needs some TLC. Please don't listen to the naysayers. They'll only bring you down. Send the gun back with your damaged rounds and they will fix it. Randy

    When you get into the real heavy weight bullets you need to be careful that you don't get bullet pull from the recoil & yes it can & does happen. Not saying it will but you better make sure it doesn't if you are shooting bullets in the 300-320 gr...

    Since you have gotten 74 different opinions on this I will include mine as #75. I feel the 38/.357 is inadequate for anything above rodents or small vermin. My choice for the Woods gun is a S&W 696 in .44 Special, mainly since I have one and...

    I have 215 gr Woodleigh's that I can shoot in my #4 Mk1 so what you want to do is feasible. If your boolits measure .308 from land to groove after slugging then your groove dia. is .313. the bore should be .303 as that is what mine is, and most I...

    Fatelk: just send the gun back to Kel-Tec and include some damaged rounds so they can see what is wrong. Also ask them to sight the gun in correctly. They will do all of it for free, and you don't need an FFL to ship it or get it sent back to you...
