    Given I full length size, and shoot full power loads mostly, I doubt I'll get 100 loadings. Thanks for all the advice on this. Interesting for sure.

    Adjustable sights are the way to go in my mind. Nothing at all wrong with a 357 magnum. Others are bigger, but not many are as cheap to scrounge brass for, and not many are as stingy on powder and lead. Thats my take. ~Bazoo

    That is pretty neat. 357magnum or 38 special with large primer pockets would be real neat to come across. I have a few 38s, dont got no 357s in my collection yet.

    greenjoytj, From the sounds of it, you're buying new cases. If you're not already doing so, you should resize the cases before trimming and loading the first time. I've bought some starline 44 mag cases, and upon measuring them, found them...

    I am in process of reading the Art of Bullet casting book. Its interesting, but its really more for advanced casting stuff. It doesnt really teach you the basics of casting. Fryxell's book is great for beginners and really for everyone.
