    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...

    Starline anneals the same as every other manufacturer with the exception of some of the straight walled original blackpowder cartridges that are often loaded to well above SAAMI specs. Starline recommends that the user anneal for BP usage to...

    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.

    I'm the rifle captain and a range officer at our range 2-3 times a week. I have seen plenty of Axis / Edge rifles, quite a few Ruger Americans and a coupe of TCs. Savage Edge / Axis seem to work ok, but are plug ugly and unbalanced. Not for me. ...

    If you have a good ball, they don't rotate from a smooth bore. Don't worry about removing the sprue nub. Just have them pointed towards the target. If you have the slightest interior inconsistency such as a void in the ball, they can go off path...
