    Take a black magic marker and color the case than insert into the chamber and rotate the case. You will be able to see were the contact is. Once you do that you can figure out why.

    I like both the heart and liver but I would not grind liver and add to hamburger. Hearts no issue but the taste and color of liver is not a good mix with hamburger in my opinion. Liver is reserved to liver and onions at my house.

    I have never used the RCBS PP swager so I don't know if this is even possible to create issues with 30 cal cases. With the Dillon 600 Super Swager on 223 cases the inside support is small enough that if you over swage the pocket you can collapse...

    I started casting in 1968 with Lyman 4 cavity for 45 Colt and 45/70. My most used molds are H&G 10, 8 or 6 cavity with a close second to my brass 4 cavity. The older Lyman's that I own cast on size or larger. The newer ones are on size or under. ...

    My bet is its caused by your crimp. Easy to test. Try some before and after your crimp.

    When you send payment you specify you want insurance and how much and yes if it's not part of the deal you have to pay extra. I have ordered around a 100 firearms mostly through GB. Two have had shipping damage.

    In reference to my comments above; the Weaver 10 bases were not even a close fit. Thanks for the info Scrummy. I have a Bushnell First Strike on a HiPoint 4595; I'm going to see what the view is like after sunset to see how a red dot might fit...

    That time was a catch-22 situation for me. During the start of the panic I maybe had 20 rounds of 35 Rem brass as a range pickup but I had nothing chambered in 35 Rem. Because of the ammo and brass shortage I picked up a couple of 35 Rems cheap...

    Now that is a sight setup, I'd like to see. Looking at the Claybuster CB1114-12, I think the cup is way too deep. I narrowed down my searching to wads with 7/8 ounce or less shot cups. Initially, I thought the strut wouldn't be up to the task on...

    The sight is a solid one-piece block, braised (?) to the barrel. It sits way too high; the rear sight is bottomed out. Without optics, this gun will never be a nighttime hog hunter. I haven't seen a hog in "legal" deer hunting light in years, but...

    During the last panic .35 Rem brass was not available period and loaded ammo wasn't much better.

    My dad's hunting buddy had a couple go off in the magazine on a Winchester Model 71. That was in the 60's and I was only 7 or 8 years old at the time but remember looking are the results with my dad.

    The Marlin 512 and Mossberg 695 both have their good points, but neither shoot as well as the Western Field 170. Neither of the others will shoot the Lee slug. I think the need to use a column wad with that particular slug really hurts it; hence, my...

    I see JBinMN provided the info. My 170 is the "Slugster", roll stamped on the barrel, so I'm not sure what you might find on that shotgun. The Slugster has a Williams dovetailed, adjustable, rear sight and the fixed front blade. I'd love to put a...

    Just food for thought. Checkering a backstrap on a SA may not be the greatest idea. In the 70's I had a set of SA grips that was checkered on the backstrap. It was a 45 Colt but in a Blackhawk. With heavier loads the checkering would take the...

    Thank you! The durn Western Field shoots the Lee like a laser. I think I am going to sell my rifled shotguns & barrel to fund a gunsmith built scout mount for the 170. I've used a gunsmith for several custom scout mounts; he has my Gibbs Summit...
