    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...

    As soon as I send off the dies and such I have for sale my CZ 75 SP-01 barrel is headed to Nawth cackalacky for throating. And I'm anxious. I'd like to be able to fire a Lee 358 RF without having to seat it so the COL is an inch or less. To me...

    The boolits sized .357 worked flawlessly. I'll shoot up all the ones I have loaded that are .358 in my Ruger, then size all to .357...

    EMC45 replied to a thread 380 Brass too large? in Cast Boolits
    Had the same problem myself. Mine happened with Speer and Federal (Both ATK) brass. I use RCBS carbide dies and sizing was fine, but when I went to flare them the die would put a band all the way around the brass.

    My CZ doesn't like .358 boolits. It will shoot .357 sized and lubed w/ CR just fine. The Ruger I have and the Glocks that I had would eat anything. Not so with my new pistol......

    The creek or river along 9W where there was an old brickyard was a favorite place of mine to go, as well as over in the Blue Mountain area. I spent many hours on those creeks. I had a boat on the Ashokan, but there was a creek that entered the...
