    Taint no way. A single stage is your only option. Take it back, you could use the die and punch with a mallet like a hand die.

    I know what you mean. I'm a finish carpenter. Been doing it 20 years myself, I can eye a board or a saw right where it needs to be. You get a feel for it after a while.

    Preciate it. I think you measured the wrong crease groove. The one right below the crimp groove is what I'm looking for.

    I would put all of them in a cold pot and light the fire. Probably would not sit or stand real close to the pot until everything melted.

    I don't understand how y'all can get away with not trimming 38 special. Do you not crimp? I put a healthy crimp on them. Back before I trimmed them, sure I could run a bunch without problems, till that one that was long refused to chamber...

    Beagle, thank you for sharing. Do you still have the BB gun by chance? I'm a young whippersnapper by comparison, but my heart longs for that simpler time. Really even before that.

    I think you have too many varieties and not enough. I like powders that have a more broad application, 3031, unique, 231, bullseye, 4895,4064,760,748,2400. I like bout any powder if I can get it cheap, but to have a powder be versatile is great. ...

    You trim after sizing, but before expanding/belling. This is also the time you measure for length. Brass will be short before sizing.

    I use the Lyman ezee trim, which works the same way. Keep in mind, you need to inside chamfer and outside deburr the mouth after trimming. I trim 38 special once for consistent length and thus consistent crimp, while many do not trim it at all.
