    I have although my groups were a bit larger than I like. I suspect it would like boolits a couple thousandths larger than what I have been feeding it. I know it is a Lee 2 cavity at 175 gr TC. I was running mine over a light load of Red Dot...

    All 3 of mine wear 60$ range truglo Red Dots. The .45acp has the 2x optical Truglo Red Dot. Looks like a small short scope with small bell's. Does a wonderful job of helping bring those targets in where I can see them.

    I have 3, 9mm, .40sw and .45acp. No real desire for 10mm or .380. Like you said, you just can't run 10 rounds through one without getting that big smile on your face. Everyone I've seen shoot one turns around with that big Grin. It just is.

    I agree with Tazman about heavy bullets for shooting those chickens. I've shot Red Dot in my 9mm's from 3 to 4.5 grains. The hotter loads were shot in a single shot handi rifle barrel and a Hipoint Carbine. The Handi rifle barrel puts them in...

    Looked like short sight radius to me. Doubt it shoots significantly better than my Hipoint Carbine in .45acp. Plus you could just about get 2 Hipoints for the price of one of those. Interesting though.

    Best tip I saw was someone who drilled a hole in powder/shot bin just smaller than the foam earplugs you can get for the range. Need to make a change? Grab a bowl, pull the plug, same on the other side. Made things a lot simplier. Me I went with...

    Not many of those in my history. Generally speaking if it performs well enough to be useful I kept it. I've sold a few, and the few I've sold I do not miss at all. Perfect example was a really really nice Brazilian .410 side by side. Hand cut...

    I have shot #1 buckshot through both of my H&R 2.5 inch barreled revolvers. Actually found it worked best squished slightly then run through a .314 lee sizing die. Easy to load, grouped well enough on paper at 20 feet. So then I tried some...
