    It’s not the crimp! A sized case with nothing else done to it doesn’t chamber, according to the OP. That only leaves the case not being sized enough to chamber as the problem. Screw the die down farther until the problem goes away. If the die...

    I'm currently bluing a barrel. I just set it outside, and am having excellent results. In dry weather, it just takes an extra day to get the oxidation I want. My strongest caution is to not let the metal get actually rusty, if you want a good high...

    I would stick with the buckshot. It shoots as well as anything you will cast. Not to mention it is frustrating to cast for an hour, and have a distressingly small pile of balls for the effort!

    Looks like you place some sort of metal "washer" over the dowels, which end up at the bottom/top of lube sticks. Reason? And, where can I get those if they help?

    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...

    mdi I had the same experience. If your cases are slightly bulged due to loading lead bullets sized .356/.357 then smoothing the case down has to swage the bullet down. Aside from it being simply logic it tends to prove two items cannot occupy the...
