    Well if it was me I would do a pound cast first to find out what I am dealing with as far as bore, lead. I have several handi's, none in .30-30. But you need to know where to start. From there I would say minimum is 2 thousandths larger. Might...

    I have read that to keep one of these going long term you may have to be a bit of a gunsmith. Be willing to tinker and fix a few things. Mine is going strong yet, about 6 weeks of use. Got a tin of the Crossman Premier pointed pellets in .177...

    Well first off you have to ask yourself what you want to do with that load. Then make an informed WAG about what kind of accuracy is acceptable. For me when I started playing with mine. I chose the Lee .312 185 gr Gas checked bullet. I also...

    People forget that people have free will. If someone does something they know they should not. Like driving while under the influence and causes an accident that takes part or all of a family away before their time. People blame God. When they...

    RCBS Universal hand tool, and if you buy one buy 2 so never have to fuss changing. Not that with a little practice changing is hard, cause it isn't. But for me it is the only fly in the oinment. No messing with shell holders, switch from .444...

    The powder coating varies a little bit but is about 26 BHN. The thickness on the bullet varies too, about .001" for the "shake and bake" method and .002"-.004" for electrostatic spray method. The rifling of a barrel is thicker than the coating. This...

    Bummer and sounds about like my kind of luck lol. Hopefully PA steps in and will say close enough on the 30 days. If not, Beeman should stand by the 1 year warranty and fix it or replace it. Actually, my luck would be more like it breaks after a...

    Are you allowing the boolits to age harden prior to sizing them?

    4 grains of Red dot does not really care if it is a 100 grain bullet or a 158 grain. It'll just plain work. I have mostly been loading .358 bullets as I have a couple of 9's that need them bigger. My Hipoint Carbine is probably the least...

    If the bullets are not pre-heated with a heat gun and the lube hot, you won't have any luck pouring the lube onto the bullets. I've pan lubed a little ( not much ), I heat the lube on a hot plate until it it is a liquid. Then I place the bullets...

    I have not bought Rem ammo since the 90's. I used to be a big Remington fan boi but they turned me off. Federal has been getting a lot of my business in the .22lr and other ammo. I too had a magazine issue with both of my Mk III 22/45's so I...

    I believe that is the Yildiz folding 12 ga action from Academy sports. They sold for about 100$. Although in theory you could do it with most single shot break action shotguns, H&R etc. Nice stock!
