    I have a feeling the bulged out brass is from the crimp being set on the Hornady cases, and the Remington brass is longer. this would crumple parts of the case bulging it out.

    I'm using AA-4100 under the varmageddon it's prettydarnclose to 2400. I'd maybe look at it for the AR's if H-110 is burning a bit dirty. under the 100-165 cast I'm using Data-9 powder. when I done the load work ups for the AR I used 4227, I...

    IMPOSSIBLE you say? no sir. did you know rubber floats. did you know the lead will jam together at the base of the deflector and can be cut out in large chunks? if you can get the lead out even with large chunks of rubber in it you can separate...

    well those dead soft Hornady swaged target 38's contain 5% antimony. I'd bet your roll was an order they made for jacket cores. you'll see lots of range scrap stuff for sale it generally has a BHN of about 10. a 10 bhn is about 2% antimony and...

    lots of stuff is molded with sand and cast in. I'd cut some pipe and slip it around the shank and pack the hook in sand to form a bottom, then fill it up.

    The CMP is a civilian program that was started after Clinton/Gore killed the DCM which was a department of the Army. The CMP does get most of its funding from firearm sales. Congress allowed firearms to be given to the CMP and the CMP to sell...

    IMO. in a bolt gun it is a neat little round, that is easy to work with and is very flexible. in a semi-auto you need to do some homework on gas tube length and become limited somewhat in what you can do. I have a couple of the bolt gun versions...

    I knew powder coat held on well just from the smash tests I have given them. but I wasn't too sure about punching them up quite that far.

    save the old lube from the top of the pot. many times it can be slightly re-worked and re used. at the least you can use it to return oxides and help get your ww's cleaner when smelting. or if your getting a lot of smoke when cleaning the ww's...

    see that grey ring in the picture of the back of your barrel? the ring on your boolits is coming from hitting right there. it's a diameter thing from adding powder to them. send the barrel to Doug guy while you got it out of the frame and he...

    The Laflin & Rand Powder Company history has always fascinated me. One of my dad's friends had a medium sized powder can collection that was to be mine but they got thrown when he passed. If I remember correctly he had a most if not all of the...

    This may sound funny until you think about it. To check your method measure a one shot group. The result needs to be .000" If you method gives you something other than .000" you are introducing inaccuracies in what you are doing. On a 38...

    I load 99% of my ammo on 650's or 1050's. Using the 650's or 1050's I can get the runout to equal to the best single stations. Start by isolating were your runout issue is coming from. Check your cases before you size than after sizing than...

    That definitely isn't a Lott that North Star made. All North Star locks have always been made in-house. No idea of the maker. The flint is pointed too high, needs to be pointing at the pan. If a flint needs back further in any gun, I cut a...

    measure the run out on some of them. I like to use 2 seating dies on the progressive presses, or turn the round as I seat in stages on the 0-frames. the case tipping as it goes into your die on the 650 can cause some crooked.

    the down side is speed. you coat and cook. then run them through the same sizer you'd run them through anyway. there are some benefits and in some situations it is an answer to a problem that only a jacketed bullet would handle. if you have...

    the 10 holds like 3-4 more pellets than the 12 in most sizes. 2 oz's of 6 shot is 2 oz's of 6 shot. I started using 3" wads in my 3-1/2" shells and stacking gas seals below them, the 3-1/2 has a higher pressure window so I could ramp things up if...

    what happens is you collect all that brass then realize you either don't have a gun in that caliber or you'll wear out the one you do have trying to shoot the brass you have. wanna know why I have 5-45 acp's and 4-9mm's? or why I have a 40 to 44...
