    I have a Lee bottom draw pot which has performed beautifully for about two years or so. I started having trouble with the infamous "Lee drip" about three months ago, so I drained and cleaned the whole thing. I lapped the rod tip in the spout and...

    Sure it is. We all have preferences and likes, especially when it comes to the transfer of information. It either gets across to you, or it doesn't and that's the author's job. After many years of reading mechanical blueprints, I EXPECT an...

    (In a husky, whispered voice)................."They'll never knowwww.............." :) I have George Nonte's book, "Pistolsmithing" also. Some VERY interesting information in that one. Like the cartridge conversion book, many home shop adaptive...

    I own both books mentioned. Nonte's book is excellent as far as it goes, but there is another on my shelf that is more up to date.......I'll have to put the title here later as it's out of reach at the moment. I inherited Narramore's book after...

    Bingo! I just got back from the range and decided to try a load of 12 grains/Unique. Set everything up and started throwing charges. Maximum variation this time was around a tenth, or what I would expect from a Uniflow. The 2400 looks perfectly...

    Okay, I set up my scale and carefully leveled it to where the pointer was EXACTLY on zero. I then set the balance weights to 16 and selected the correct Pacific check weights that add up to 16, then placed them in the pan. The balance came to rest...

    Thanks for the advice guys. I'll disassemble the measure again, take it out to the shop and blow some compressed air through all the openings. I'll also verify the scale with check weights, something I should have done in the first place. As for...

    I've owned my RCBS Uniflow since the very early seventies, when I first began reloading in earnest. It's always thrown powders pretty much "dead on" plus or minus perhaps a tenth.......very reliable. Yesterday I was setting up to throw 16 grain...

    I used a handful of .348 given by a friend. I trimmed to length and used Lee .41 Swiss dies to form, then fired a .44 lead pistol bullet on top of 10 grains of Unique. All shots were very low of course, due to the sights, but all hit pretty much in...

    I've gotten excellent function and accuracy with a 130 grain lead bullet and 11 grains of 2400. It's all I load anymore for my carbine.

    Be aware.........when I loaded for my AR, NONE of the rounds would fully chamber in the gun! This led to some pretty frustrating moments in the field, let me tell you. I bought two items that solved the problem: A case gauge to check the...

    Nope..........definitely Boxer. I checked all of them with a strong flashlight......one flash hole in each.......now that flash hole COULD have been under size which would bend the decapping pin. In either case, they were worthless so out they went....

    Well, I placed the first cleaned case under my Lee decapping die and promptly bent the pin. At that point, all five cases got scrunched with pliers and tossed in the scrap brass bucket. The primers were lightly staked, but tremendously tight, so not...

    Well, you're probably right...........I didn't look at that last letter under a magnifying glass, and it very well could be a "Q". I'll wash, rinse and reload. Thanks!

    I had just finished shooting my #4 rifle today and was packing up for home, when I looked down and saw 5 forlorn cases on the ground. It didn't take me long to identify them as 8 x 57 Mauser, and Boxer primed to boot! When I got home I searched the...
