    I'm doing the same project as you guys, but, my rifle is a 71/84 that, I think, was re-barreled at some point for 43 Spanish. the bolt face was not changed and therefore, it needs a .586 rim, not the larger one on the 43 Spanish. I have fireformed...

    got out to shoot my new (to me) 43 mauser carbine, and it's actually a 43 Spanish chamber, but the bolt head is .586 diameter (43 mauser). no worries. used a mix of 45-70 and 43 Spanish brass with the rims turned to .586 on the lathe and beveled for...

    going to do the same thing tomorrow! I loaded 20 with the lyman 446 mold (forget the number). came out 447 with my pc and 350 grains. used 30 grains imr4198. my question is: how did you configure your cases? I found that my 71/84 (commercial...

    get the biggest aluminum baking pan with raised walls that you can find, and set your bullets and foil in the pan. hook the electrical clip from the PC gun to the pan and it will charge both the pan and the foil (and the bullets). turn the air...

    when I get a new mold, I spray the blocks with wally world brake parts cleaner, then detail clean the cavities with a q-tip soaked in acetone. smoke with broken off popsicle stick or toothpick and good to go. to store short term, I just spray the...

    I just anneal the case (Winchester works best) and run them into my lee 375 sizer die with the tapered expander. Usually ends up with a little circular depression where the base of the neck used to be, which disappears after first firing. First...

    they are stamped 7.21 firehawk, measure 2.81 length, base and rim are .544. these are unfired and stamped lazzeroni. I have couple hundred, and can get more from the same guy, if y'all want them. at 52 cents each I can cover shipping, but would like...

    this is the firehawk. I have no idea what they're worth. I saw an ad on gunbroker for 60 once fired and the guy was asking $265. wouldn't want the cases, but might like a little of what he's smoking:D. I dunno, 50 cents apiece? john

    came across a bunch of 7.21 Firehawk brass (unfired) and thought I could use it for a project, but looks like it won't work. anyone interested? let me know a fair price (I have several hundred), I hate to sell it for scrap John
