    No, I'm not unhappy. I've never liked real light triggers. Long as it's crisp.

    Well I ended up buying an older Savage 110 today. It has a checkered birch stock, no accutrigger, and is in 30-06 caliber. For whatever reason it just felt right, looked right, and the price was right. Got some dings on the stock but nothing...

    I have only bought two sets of dies new, both pistol, but I can't recall if I cleaned them or not. Probably. Whenever I clean my dies I generally use remoil and the small end of a weapons brush or a patch/rag on a cleaning loop. I have used a...

    I personally don't agree with banking of pifs. In theory it wouldn't cause a problem, but in practice it's the end of a PIF string when someone uses a banked PIF.

    Thanks for all the replies to this thread, it's been very interesting. I haven't ever had the chance to go on an extended hunt. I mostly hunt on the 18 acre farm. I like to ground hunt for deer, so I made a large pad to set on. It's about...

    The 30-06 looks right. I've owned a couple for short periods. I am not biased from family, friends, or military service. I've done a lot of reading on cartridges of all manner and not just articles in praise. The 30-06 has a certain balance that...

    I have a spartan but the largest thing I've sized on it has been 30-30. I don't think it'd have any problems with 30-06 class sizing though. I've modified my press by shortening the handle about an inch. I seen a c press once that had a piece...

    If it's the first shot that is the flier, Is this with a clean bore? Or is it the first shot after having shot jacketed, Or is it with a cold bore? Is try the tumble lube again as a control.

    I figured out the crimp die is a roll crimp. If I run a piece of brass into it almost as deep as it will go it gives a normal roll crimp. Guess I was having a dense moment or something. It will not crimp the 31141 bullets however. The shoulder of...

    When I pan lube I remove the cake from the pan and push the bullets out bottom first. I never sized them first but that is a good idea. When I go to run them through the lee sizing die they get lube all over the nose, which I remove with a rag and...
