    Sounds less like a boolit issue, and more like a mag or feed ramp issue. There are TWO overall lengths mentioned in all reloading books: 1) The COAL mentioned on the first page (Title Page) of that cartridge is NOT the length to seat all...

    Grainger or Digikey or Mouser among other places. Mail order's an alternative, if no local store by you. You need a Motor Start Capacitor for AC motors, these are NON POLARIZED, a polarized (Electrolytic) one will explode when you power the saw...

    Aah OK that makes sense, tho in many states SBRs are legal. I thought he'd been saying building your own handgun was verboten, period. I mean, in -Texas-? Seemed off and threw me :) Contenders are the same, building a rifle from a Contender Pistol...

    Texas by God - Why would building your own be verboten? You can build your own (BP) Cannon, Shotgun, Rifle, or Handgun, at least in almost all states, last I heard.

    In a way, the threat from bears is like the threat from lightning - IIRC there are a few, rare people, who work in jobs in the outdoors, where they have been struck by lightning (at least "Near Misses") more than once. Example - A Ranger who was hit...

    Hmmm, I mainly know where I would talk with computer nuts like me. Some computer folks, sadly, don't have much tolerance for newbies - One might say that they lack TACT, or empathy; Some coders and computer folks are just different. Partly because...

    My approach has been to carry a SBH in 44 Rem Mag in black bear country, and 12 Ga in Griz country; So far so good. An IDIOT family member was "treed" up a rock wall by a ticked Black Bear some years ago, they finally saw the light; I saw if before...

    So much of the fine details of tooling making, especially for this sort of specialty tooling, is "state of the art", with each maker being the artist. Even though our forum, and this discussion area, abounds with helpful information for those of...

    Quick answer is NO. A resounding NO. But, let me explain. The Swage-O-Matic press was never intended to do jacketed bullet making using brass cases as jackets. It as designed in the early days to make "half jacket" bullets, really just a...

    Jtarm, Yes, that is ten total molds that are now committed for. However, that does not make this an active buy. When Miha creates the bits and pieces for these molds, he HAS to plan on 100 cavity sets (the pins) as a minimum. In a four cavity...

    I did forget to mention putting the lid over the skillet. If it's sealed like that and you temperature cycle it, shouldn't have any problem, just stinky fumes from the lube etc. melting; Mind you - Paraffin Wax's flash points are fairly high,...

    The Redding set contains 0.125, 0.135, and 0.062 for reducing crimp / FL sizing to neck sizing I guess? I found a local friend who'll do this, I'll have to go visit (he's some ways away) and we can do "Group Therapy" together. (That's where you...

    Another possibility would be buying a cheap large electric skillet at a local thrift shop, then preheating the boolits at 200F to 225F to make sure they are dry; They should be quite safe after that, to put in the pot. (Do give them a while to make...

    Some time ago in a wildcat I was playing with, the expander / depriming stem got loose and screwed itself longer and longer, to the point that it hit the case web and got bent. THAT will cause nasty runout, as in 20 degrees or 30 degrees. OOPS!...

    WTB some die spacers to hold 7/8-14 dies off above the press; The ID needs to be able to slide over the 7/8-14 thread on reloading dies (No need to thread the inside, a slip fit is great) and since the dies lock rings are 1-3/16" flat to flat I'd...
