    About half and half. I shoot some .314 90 gr TC TL those are plain base. Mostly these are over light loads of Red Dot. I also shoot the Lee .312 185 gr those are checked. These I use the 4895 and they are probably fast enough that the gas...

    Nice old Roller! I like the straight taper case too. I am not sure what it is, but I always like seeing rimmed cases in single shot rifles. Just seems to fit for some reason. Enjoy!

    I had this exactly on my Mosin Nagant. Just at the point where the brass ended was a square edge, sharp at the end of the neck. If the nose of the bullet was a smidge too big it shaved a chunk of lead while it was being inserted. Caused chambering...

    Did the turkey breast last night. Now this was one half, bone included, skin, ribs, and the bones in front that support the wings. I wanted to finish with the turkey done, and a rice bowl on top. So I put the turkey in for 6 minutes, with...

    I'm interested in your 20 and 16 ga conversion kits. Already have an older 12 ga easy loader which I love dearly. So really not interested in the loader. If you are not interested, that is fine. If you are PM me we'll see if we can agree...

    I have 3 carbines, 9mm, .40sw, .45acp. Really love the .45. All have Red Dots on them, folding foregrip. Foregrip works great at the range. Holds the gun up off the table at a comfortable height, easy to pivot, aim up, down. They work. ...

    Vote with your feet and your pocketbook. Recob's, BPI, similar company's would love to have your business. Plan ahead, stock up a little bit. Buy 2 or more 8 lb jugs and 10,000 rounds of primers that spreads that hazmat out to where you hardly...

    Bluedot likes HEAVY bullets. I prefer Red Dot in my 9mm, well in most things to be honest. I have shot 9mm loaded from 3 grains of Red Dot to 4.5 grains (In carbine) with no issues. Bullet does need to be big enough. Make a dummy round...

    Thumbnail makes a good guesstimate. Soft lead will be gouged by a thumbnail. Clip on Wheel Weight will gouge "some" but not as deep or as wide as soft. Harder alloys may not gouge at all, may make just a shiny streak. A little practice,...

    Red Dot is often not an ideal powder for semi auto rifles. Just does not produce enough gas for long enough. Tends to be a quick hard pulse then is diminishing rapidly by the time the bullet reaches the gas port. In my Yugo SKS 7.62x39 I do shoot...

    Sat evening, wife brought home a "flat iron steak" about 2/3rds of a pound. Rubbed with Adolph's meat tenderizer and Worcester sauce and let it sit for half an hour while I talked to the neighbor. Sliced into roughly 8 3/4x3/4 strips. Cut up...

    I would say it would depend on the variables. With the right variables they could be no problem at all. With the wrong ones you might see some leading. Alloy? Hardness? Air cooled or water drop? Load? Powder? Pushing them hard or light...

    Good luck! On the lower cost side I've had good luck with the medium quality Shakespeare reels. My favorites do tend to be Shimano mid sized with rear drag. Get a big fish on taking line and you can cause serious damage to fingers with...
