    I use the NOE 200gr but the RG mold so makes a 180gr HP. Not had much luck keeping 40 S&W subsonic in a rifle, pretty much requires a 200gr. The 180 gr HP work great in any pistol I have. I have the Lee mold, but a 2 bullet mold, never gotten great...

    I have converted 30-06 to 8mm mauser, 7.65 mauser and 7mm mauser. Never had any issues w dents, just ran it thru the press real quick. Issue was neck thickness. I managed to find a 8mm inside reamer, but not 7mm. And not had any issues finding 7mm...

    Rim fire your gonna get one use out of. The converted 8mm Lebel will last a long time, I did not even resize mine after firing, just tumble and reload. The conversion is brutally simple, and does not require altering the existing firing pin. It...

    I just use a 290gr NOE 44 mold I already had. Cut the cases much longer than spec, like 45mm. Crimp at the right length to feed properly. Used 40-65 data out of Lymans, 24gr of 4198 was right on the mark when it came to velocity. Been trying to find...

    Not a firearm misplaced but some extra components. I built a switch barrel 1911 in 45ACP and 400 Corbon (both government model slide setups) a few years back and recently added a Combat Commander 45ACP bull and barrel and slide to the setup for my...

    I'm dealing with this very issue with a new AR10 upper in 6.5 creedmoor. My other reloads for my Mauser 98 chambered in that same caliber has no problem loading the cartridges but the new rifle is a no-go with the older reloads while new cartridges...

    Its hard to get them to fit the same brand. I ended up w an older Uberti, then found a much newer one in a shop, nothing is compatible between them, not one screw, nothing. A pietta cyl actually works in the old Uberti.

    More than a few 9mm AR barrels are done this way. A brand new AR stoner barrel from Midway had no throat. It would not even work with factory jacketed stuff. Sort of worked, it would load, but murder to unload as the bullets were jammed into the...

    If you buy the little tubs of lunch meat, they give you a container for free. Have a whole pile of them with various bullets in them.

    Being glock mags wont be the issue. But not seen where 40 cal bolts are that easy to get or a barrel. Way easier solution is to buy a Mechtech upper, uses your glock frame and mags.

    I worked at a VW dealer, late 90s. Drove several diesels, but the older rabbits. The old mechanical engines were bullet proof. Sadly with VW or anything German its everything else thats the issue. Weird electrical issues, stupid leaks that happen...

    discount the varied lengths of the cases, I was eyeballing the trim back to 57mm with a 22-250Rem Lee Pilot (I have a custom-length Lee .22-57mm pilot coming soon) but the key takeaway from the image is the scoring of the necks by the RCBS seating...

    Hornady isn't making A-Maxs anymore so they soon will go the way of the Herter's Wasp-Waisted Bullets...You might want to develop a load with a different bullet soon. That said, I loved their 6.5mm 100gr A-Maxs and I am not a fan of their new ELD...

    I'll upload a photo tonight of the impact that the reloading dies have on the reformed 7x57 brass. Accuracy was horrendous past 25 yards with cast bullets as I think I was sizing them down during the seating process.

    Let me know whenever you tire of the experiment with this cartridge as I've been looking for a 38-45 Clerke 1911 barrel for a long time also. CH-4D does have dies if you can't find any local.

    Trying to decide between inside or outside neck reaming for a 22-6mm Remington wildcat I built this summer. To form the brass, I'm going to need to ream the brass necks of my x57mm length cartridge cases to fit the RCBS Wildcat 22-6mm Remington...

    I bought a PSA Gen 1 Lower receiver and Gen 2 Upper receiver last year when they were on sale and then proceeded to build it as a 308 Win first before changing the 20" barrel out when a 20" 6.5 Creedmore barrel came available (I love 6.5 caliber...
