    I'm a ladle pourer since back in the late 70's. I did finally move up to a Lee magnum melter and I love mine. Lyman side spout ladle. Started with mostly 2 cavity Lee molds, slowly converting the stable over to 6 cavity. A hotplate is a...

    Oatmeal is one thing. Gold, shades of blue to purple only happened for me with very pure lead. Ussually pure lead that got a bit warmer than needed. I think you panicked too quick. Leave the oatmeal in the scrap bucket but see how much of that...

    My "Main" press is a lee hand press. It lives loosely just to the right of my chair on the top of one of those plastic drawer sets. Drawers are full of reloading stuff from cleaning kits, to powder dippers to scales and digital measureing devices. ...

    Well Cindy is exploding with joy beside me. 3 days ago the PA from Neurosurgery called and left a voice mail. They were concerned about her, concerned about her feeling like she had been left behind. This morning the doctor had a new plan if...

    If you want some " modest loads " 1,100 - 1,400 fps a can of Universal ( it is a cousin to Alliant Unique ) would work well for you. If you want to speed things up a bit 1,400 - 1,850 fps, H - 4198 is your friend with cast bullets in the...

    I have a H&R 732 (blued, 2.5") had a 733 that I passed on to my shooting buddy. I'd have to agree with outpost75. In mine I love 2 grains of Red Dot. Bullet wise I love the Lee .314 90 gr truncated cone. It shoots exactly where I point it...

    I like the Lee .452 130 gr truncated cone (6 cavity, also works in my .45 colt) Like the OP I like Red Dot. 4.5 to 5 grains will put them on target. Less than 4.5 gave me sooty cases. I don't shoot mine much, It is a mid 90s Springfield Armory....

    Update. This morning cindy woke up pain free, able to walk, move, get out of bed, etc. Spent most of the morning cleaning, reorganizing the bedroom for improved access, fewer things to trip over or get hung up on with a walker. Seeing her...

    I have 2 9mm's that require .358 or larger to not keyhole. Both love .38 special 125 gr which drop at .358 or .359. I don't size those. Find out what fits in yours. Once you have a dummy round that works crimp it, use it to set your dies.
