    I was still in high school, either a junior or senior up in Saugerties, N.Y. on the first earth least I think it was. I thought it was pretty silly with people walking around with surgeons masks and black arm bands.

    I have a PACT that I had for about six or so years that I had to send back because it went crazy. Prior to that I had a Lee beam and just hated it. While my PACT was away I bought an RCBS 510 beam scale, put a box behind my press to raise it closer...

    I tried fireforming nickel plated brass to an A.I. caliber. Maybe threw away a fourth of them, I don't quite remember. The ones that did form looked really good, the others had little flaws that while maybe were ok, I discarded due to caution. ...

    Lee, Dillon, RCBS, and Hornady have all been excellent. My only bad experience was with Lyman. I needed a new pan. They wouldn't sell me one. They wanted me to send my scale in, and pay for the pan, AND for them to calibrate it. I ended up, ordering...

    To me, pan lubing is very messy. Very tedious as well. I began pan lubing when I started casting. I used 50/50 beeswax and Crisco in the pan and then push them through Lee dies. I got a Lyman 4500 and dies for it. I then got a Lyman 45 off here and...
