    I love it when this topic comes up. Everybody piles on with their idea of the best single stage press, and I could do the same as I consider my BPM Hand Press to be the best there is. However,,, I started in 1971 with a Lee Loader in .243 which...

    Well I sure hope I have the same result that you did. I’ve been calling him and have emailed him. So far, no results. I hope he has a reasonable explanation and all is well with him. Harles

    Yes we are trying too many things at once but that's fine we need to know what's out there. Yesterday I ordered 5 boxes of Lightfield Slugs and 5 boxes of Brenneke Tactical Home Defense Slugs. My intention with these is to develop a base line of...

    The "Incident at Red Butte" is sure interesting. Perhaps an overcharge of some kind or perhaps a cylinder whose time had come. The cylinder on my Model 19 Smith didn't let go but it did bulge enough the empty case had to be pounded out. I was 300...

    I shoot an alloy that is as soft as I can get away with & still maintain accuracy at the velocity I want. You don't say what caliber you're shooting but if it's 41 caliber or bigger & pushed 1000-1100 fps you will be fine. I powder coat all my...

    I had some very detailed full size pictures of the HDS Press from Artful who got #001 for his contribution to the project. These pics were actual size so I could take measurements off them, which I did. Most of the ratios came off the Lee Press...

    BPI Sells a .410 roll Crimping tool that goes in a Drill press or can be used in a common drill motor. I have one but have never used it as all my .410 loading so far has been done on a Pacific DL266 that fold crimps perfectly. The 12 ga one I...

    Hopefully I'll get to shoot at some paper targets this week so I can dial in the rear sights on both barrels with "base line slugs" which in the case of the smooth bore will be Federal Low Recoil cuz that's what I'll have to shoot at Front Sight. I...

    First, Froggie is right about the evolution of the design. First came Decker, then Huntington bought Decker's rights, then ran out of parts and chose not to do it any more and this was about 6-8 years before I decided to do it. The last price I saw...

    I've been shooting cast 38 Super for over 30 years. Anything from 100 to 150 gr that will feed will work. Lots of powder options. If you want some detail, PM me.

    I was given several pounds of this & liked it enough to purchase an 8 pound jug. It works just fine in my 45-70. I use 25 grains & the NEI 460-405-FN which comes in at 420 grains. Load on right.

    Mine is a little more simple. It is just a piece of 1/2' Aluminum Plate with a hole in it. The Fit on a sized rim is real close so if the holder is cocked even a little it will lock the hull in place. Still want to make a wood one. Randy

    The Red Dot Sight is the fastest method of Target Acquisition there is. On a rifle it has no equal. On a pistol after you learn to pick up the dot during your presentation it eliminates sight alignment, which can be problematic for some people. On...

    I've shot a lot of those bullets out of a Lyman mould which is a clone to the one you mention. It's a very popular bullet in the 9mm & some 38's if sized correctly. I've killed a lot of grouse, many hundreds of ground squirrels, rock chucks, a few...

    Would be a neat idea, but I hate picking up brass from my lever actions, a semi would make it even worse. Not sure how much market there would be for a semi.
