    I never had luck with the waa12 wads with the Lyman slugs. The only ones I could ever get to shoot really well were the short red ones they don't make anymore. I can not remember the number off right now. But they were awesome in 2 3/4" AA and Rem...

    See. I HATE that stuff. You have to use it wet. Then you get dents all over the cases. The only thing I use it for now is to lube a brush to clean the inside necks of rifle cases. I just wipe a little on the brush to help clean the inside of the...

    You have to look at the dates on the reviews on Amazon to judge the reviews. Besides, if you get them and they are made in China send them back. Here watch this. Start at 12:00 min https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myhUaa8C4XQ&t=1038s

    It is no more work to grind the correct degree bit for single point threading then it is to grind a 60 degree bit. No use in trying to force incorrect thread angles into a receiver. It may go but you may also damage the receiver in trying to crush...

    Do this. Take the LEE LUBE THROW IT AS FAR AS YOU CAN! Order some RCBS case lube and a pad. Or some Imperial case lube. Or even Canola oil. Yes I have used it. The only way the Lee lube works is if it is still wet when you size the case. If...

    Depends on the size of battery. If looking for AA's the best batteries out there for the price right now are the Amazon Basic in black color. They are made by Eneloop and made in Japan not made in China like just about everything else.

    Make sure your neck expander is set right. If it is set too high it will jam in the neck and you can rip the rim off. Also make sure to lube the inside of the necks as it can cause galling.
