    Battis -- I find it interesting that you have read, "I read a review somewhere that said it didn't work on the 32ACP due to the case length" as, in my experience, that case length is NOT in any way important in use of the Lee die is, imho, one of...

    For forty years I used a Oahu’s 505. My issue with them is the little “tenth’s” tab jumping when I lift the scale pan off the scale to our into a case. Tired of the BS I bought a used RCBS 510 and no sooner said, a 1010 jumped outa the bushes,...

    The safety measure, throwing ten and reweighing caught your original error. Your mind is working perfectly fine! Best regards and stay safe! Three44s

    My answer to your question, "Is a crimp even needed?" I believe "sum-thin" needs be done to loaded cases to insure a uniform grip ("uniform grip = uniform accuracy") on your bullets as well as keeping them from moving even a smidgeon in your case...

    Imho, you would have NOT either been concerned re weight accuracy, or, just ignored it! Your actions definitely indicate you are NOT losing your mind -- ;) (at least, perhaps in loading :) :) ). Your mistake could have easily gone the other way --...

    Sorry for not checking in sooner! HS6 is picked on for being dirty and as a spherical powder that is not fast, I went with magnum primers. Besides inside flash hole deburring, I also trim case lengths to a standard length appropriate to my batch...

    I do not lube into the pocket but just a very slight film on the very face of the head of the case. With a relatively small case such as 223, I use a Wilson case holder to give me more to hang onto and that reduces hand cramping with large...

    Congrats on your new mould! To try and answer some of your questions, first -- you bet I'd cast with it! First, of course, I'd gently clean it up; pre-heat it; and, cast away! There is a pretty fine web-site devolted exclusively to these --...

    I began cutting primer pockets deeper for my varmint gun’s. When I found out how it saved me time fighting getting primers from protruding, I began uniforming all my brass pockets, rifle and handgun. The heads of casings can be rather hard and...

    Speaking from the perspective that this was in a .44 Mag SW MG, back when I was working with HS6 & 800X, I had a load for each pushing the RCBS 250K. I was already biased against the 800x because it meters poorly compared to HS6, but my next test...

    I used to think like that, but reality and necessity caught up with me and I bought my first “bear gun”, a 7.5” Ruger Redhawk in 44 Magnum. While that revolver was a bit more frame than what I needed, I found that not only is it a suitable...

    The presses I use are either mounted to a min-riser welded to a flat plate or they are bolted down to a 2x8 or 2x10” board. Then I use c-clamps to secure them. My LnL Hornady progressive is mounted to a tall short piece of “I” beam that I...

    I have similar revolver, but in stainless -- the 625-3 “45 Cal of 1983” 5”Barrel .45ACP using moon-clips -- and a friend's 625 in .45 Colt --other than chambering -- seems to be identical. Hence, I'd suggest any .45acp loads pressures would be a...
