    I've always wanted one. Every-time I get weak I borrow my buddies Model 8. They kick like the proverbial mule with the long action recoil system. That cures me for awhile.

    I have both the 10 and 20 Lb pots from Lee. My old 10 Lb has been holding up longer than I can remember. I have at least 2 of the 4-20's. The heating elements having given me more issues over time than the 10 Lb pot. But they are worth the...

    Norma is great brass also. The rep. on Norma is the head is softer so primer pockets loosen sooner. For me in 6mm BR that has been true.

    Since the burn rates of these powders are relatively close, both are ball powder and the amount mixed is very small it really is more of a comfort and knowledge concern than a safety concern. If you are competent enough to purchase and use surplus...

    Most firearms using stainless use a 416/420 or 630 (17-4) stainless steel. It will be magnetic. Non-magnetic stainless steel is far more corrosion resistant but it generally not heat-treatable. As such they are too soft for most firearms...

    Hardly an odd ball. I have three of them a 1A Ruger No1, a Medium Sporter Ruger No1 and a Mossberg Walnut Patriot. Kicks like a mule, but an awesome performer. Mind you, I've never shot cast through them.
