    Federal large pistol primers were easier to initiate when they came in the red box. The change came when the package turned blue/slightly gray. Three44s

    You raise a good point! In some circles that could raise some real eye brows or in others, embolden some one who is a nut job, witness our news lately. The correct grammar .... prairie dogs! For the life of me, I do not understand why Ruger...

    It sounds like you have done due diligence to the Nth degree. I am with you about the motorís operating temp being alarming but I would use your well thought out fan system and let the chips fall. If it pukes then think hard for a replacement...

    Never say never! I refrain from saying “I will never do that again” .... instead I say, ”It is less likely that I will be doing that again” Lloyd certainly has some nice stuff and a good place to utilize it with! Best regards Three44s

    Going up in bore size with a given case reduces the need to turn for clearance and increases the chance you lose important neck tension. Necking down cases is where you are more likely to need to outside neck turn. Three44s

    Right after I finished my first 204 build on a Savage short action I had a coyote run out of the bushes. It ran up a draw out of sight but on a hunch, I set up for a shot. Sure enough it had to have just one more look back and it circled back on...

    Well, I passed them over because I am leery about new cartridges failing to catch on and having to scrounge for brass so when I bought my CZ I played safe and went 223. That was in 2005 I later built a Savage bolt gun into a 204, first as a...

    Hey, I still have my RAC in 223 but have not added to that herd. No flies on the Ruger Americans of any stripe however. Two winters ago we had a blizzard (unusual for my area in Central WA) and the coyotes were feasting on our baby newborn...

    +10 on everything discussed so far. I would suggest newer brass that has not age hardened or anneal, then size up your necks as gradually as you can to avoid case mouth splits (stepped mouth sizing). As written above, use the bullet engaging...

    Thank you George, I appreciate that! I will give Shaggybull’s #366 a whirl and if that does not pan out, I will do a WTB in the member classifieds for a 418. I was reluctant to search and buy a 418 since there was some uncertainty with two...

    A local forum member brought a #366 top punch for me to try. Thank you Shaggybull! Next time I cast with my 257388, I will try it. In the meantime I also found a more complete list of Lyman top punches and it also refers to the #418 as being...
