    Maybe screw in a die with a locknut, and tighten it down. Use a wrench and small mallet to gently tap it out. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    I lube the inside of the case with set of Midway brushes and some RCBS lube. The outsides , depending on what I'm loading, will get rolled on the lube pad or some Imperial wax. I found out that too much lube on the shoulders WILL cause lube dents,...

    I have one of the 4in. fixed sight Taurus .44 Specials. It shoots really well. Mine does real well with the Lee 200gr. RNFP Cowboy bullet over Titegroup or Unique.

    My only beef with roll crimping .410s is the cases are scorched and torched (ruined) after shooting them with H110.

    I too like S&B primers. I think they are a good bit softer then CCI and Wolf primers. They seat nicely in my SP cases (.32, .38). They all ignite with ease and have had no failure to fire with them. I save the Wolf and CCI for the semi autos.
