    One doesn't always "need" to size but it does make a significant difference in accuracy. All bullets the same size really helps. Lee makes inexpensive sizers, and NOE also has a wide range of push through sizers. I would try tumble lube because it...

    Small item but the rubber O rings inside my trim die that hold the brass needed replacing, they don't use O rings anymore so no parts in stock, they sent me at no charge a new trim die with the nylon insert they use today. Titan whom I ordered the...

    Could be a fun project! I brought a 1981 Suzuki 550 back to life that hadn't run in at least ten years and it was a thrill to hear it running for the first time!

    ^^^ What he said. With the addition that components are flexible. Same primer can load several different caliber, same powder can cover lots of calibers. Good to have some stuff on hand to reload what you shoot and what you might find but if I...

    Pioneers only shot for a purpose. Food or self defense. The first doesn't use much ammo, and realistically they seldom needed the to deal with the latter in any long and protracted fashion. More pioneers died of Cholera than gunshot. I think we...

    I'd bet money on it being old gas and gunked carbs. I'm not familiar with how this bike is set up but if you can get to the carb bowls and drop them, you could possibly clean up the bowl and float valve enough to get it running quickly just using...

    DougGuy, just a stellar post. Thank you! I like my grits with real butter salt and pepper with two over easy eggs on top. Some bacon is optional. Really good.

    Wife made me correct this. She likes grits with butter, salt, pepper and eggs. Busted my chops over forgetting she puts butter on too.

    And if you wait too long someone else is likely to give in to the urge first and buy it. Outside my budget now but I do admire a nice rifle or pistol. Especially one with historical overtones. Good luck and possibly someone soon will recall that...

    Lot of tricks get posted and most can manage to really reduce drips or all but eliminate them. I have read where the spout is adjustable on some models and by moving up or down can improve action, that giving a short twist back and forth of the pin...

    I guess I'm a little odd (used to it so don't worry) I apply a tiny amount of Lee lube to my nitrile glove then scrape some off the glove into the case mouth. Use more on some brass than on others. What is new brass? Really I do have some new...

    If that is saying 1 in 7 twist you might give a heavy bullet a try. I have a 1:7 Ruger Mini-14 I cast 70 grain for and it shoots a whole lot more accurate than it does with store bought 55 grain. Gas check & PC'd 70 grain Lyman #2 in NOE mold...

    Well just wait another 45 minutes and the skeeters will be so bad they'll drive you inside or insane. Looks like you be guilty of making hay while the sun shines.

    well here's hoping he didn't have to apply a gas check in addition to the white PC. On the other hand a copper gas check might make it less likely to be mistaken for a tic-tac. Unless of course when you load tic-tac you put a gas check on them too...

    CCI are running between $27 for bulk purchase and $34 buying 1k boxes at a gun show. S&B are generally in mid to lower 20's, enough price difference that for the price of 3 CCI "off the shelf" one could buy 4 S&B.

    RogerDat replied to a thread LLA leading issue in Boolit Lube !
    Might also try dipping bullet base in lube rather than tumble lubing. I don't do this in a big way but tried a few after an old timer that sells $5 packs of reloads at a gun show told me about it. He uses the plastic inserts from store bought box...

    Well if they are stored properly they won't spoil. I mostly go with use one and buy two rather than large purchases. I did buy a thousand each of S&B in a couple of sizes to try but haven't gotten to them yet. Most of my stash is CCI but they...

    I can see that for a lot of folks the S&S forum for nice clean ingots of COWW at $1 a pound would be the better deal, but man it is hard to beat free. Me I'll just watch a movie, the game, or something entertaining while I sit there and sort. But...

    I would add pay attention to the part about you have to go to a main facility or hub. The strip mall storefronts are not able to handle it. The can however probably tell you where corporate store/hub is located. On the other hand if you ask them...
