    My late wife bought an enameled Lodge CI pot that I used to make chili in. I'd put the burner on low and fill it with whatever struck my fancy that day. It was always delicious...... One day before she passed she turned on the burner under it and...

    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 just stuffed a few wax wrappers into the lubrisizer, I supposed they would melt and blend with whatever was in there at the time... I did this off and on for a few years. Nothing scientific, nor was there a lot of wax at one time. The cheese was...

    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.
