    Same thing happens in No. 4 Enfields converted to 7.62mm NATO. Also in some wartime receivers in original .303 caliber if heat treatment wasn't correct. Inspection of lug seats in receiver is de rigeur during FTR. If rifle requires next size...

    Redding Profile Crimp WILL fix that. Lee Factory Crimp might or might not. My results mixed, which is why I replaced mine with the Redding. I shoot ALOT of .44-40s in original Colts and Winchesters, as well as modern S&W (544), Marlins and...

    The RCBS Little Dandy Measure is perfect for loading the small .32 pistol and revolver cases. Use the Rotor # 00 to load 1.7 grains of Bullseye in the .32 ACP with 80-90 grain cast bullets in the .32 ACP. Use the Rotor #0 to measure 2.2 grains...

    The Keith type bullets with long nose and full-diameter front driving band when loaded in .38 Special brass, and fired in a .357 revolver, are well guided in their transition exiting the case and entering the cylinder throats and they shoot...

    RL7 in a compressed charge in the .44-40 duplicates the original black powder velocity and pressure with smokeless powder. Both Hercules and Alliant listed pressure tested RL7 data for years. The fact that they dropped it from their brochure in...

    Sounds to me like the dimensions on your RCBS swager are off. I process thousands of GI crimped .30'06 cases to load ammo for Garand classes, etc. I use the Lee Universal decapper and then before swaging in the Dillion Autoswage 600, I...

    In the .44-40 the pressure generated by RL7 is limited by the available powder capacity. When loading bullets heavier than 200 grains, to standard OAL to feed from tube magazines, the increased bullet seating depth reduces powder capacity so that...

    Of late I have also been fooling with the .38 Special in either one of the Rugers or a 1955 S&W .38-44 Heavy Duty. Enough more energy than the .32-20 to impart confidence on deer and larger varmints. .38 Special +P and .38-44 Handloads ...

    Great post and set-up of the topic. I keep going back to Keith's Sixguns Cartridges and Loads (1936) and the older I get it seems like the more it makes sense. Over the years I've fooled with hand busting magnums and high velocity varmint...

    Yes, I cut neck off case and drilled out primer pocket to diameter of reamer shank. I used a dummy round as a Go gage and just went slowly cut and try until I could chamber the round with slight resistance and extract it without telescoping or...

    I have used the Clymer throater by hand using improvised guide bushings made from a cut-off cartridge case and turning the reamer with a socket-wrench handle and using plenty of Brownell's Do-Drill. Takes a forceful, but guided light touch at first...

    My rifle uses .30-30 or .32 Winchester Special brass necked up with no other change. Neck annealiing helps, but fire-forming is not needed. You can also use Starline 2.080" brass for the .38-55 https://www.starlinebrass.com/38-55-brass-2080 and...

    After WV passed Constitutional Carry I maintained the permit for reciprocity reasons. When you buy a gun the state police computer instant background check goes through much more quickly when you have the permit than if you don't.

    The Savage No. 4 has an interesting history. Output from Savage began in late 1941 and lasted only 3 years compared to the Canadian Longbranch production which lasted into the 1950's. Very early North American production resulted in some No4 Mk1,...

    For me the appeal of the .35/.30-30 was the availability of free range pickup brass at the DNR range, and the advantages of a RIMMED case for use with mild, "cat sneeze" loads without the primer blast driving the cases forward in the chamber and...

    Savvy Jack. Sure would appreciate if you could fire pressure for charge establishment Group 1 vs. Group 2 with 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.2 of Bullseye with 43-230G. If you need bullets I can cast and send to you, but I think you may have gotten the...
