    sigep1764 replied to a thread Where to reload? in Our Town
    I currently live in an apartment and have a Lyman single stage, a Star lubesizer, and a Dillon 550c mounted on it. It is a triangle top bench that is less than 3 feet wide. As long as you only do 3 or 4 calibers, all ancillary equipment can be...

    When I had my SDB, I was shaving lead and the brass was squeezing down my boolits. I had LatheSmith here on the forum make me custom funnel with a wider/deeper expander plug. The funnel loaded thousands of rounds in the SDB and continues on in the...

    One way to go for both is to buy the Lee Universal expander die, purchase the correct NOE expander plug insert for .22's, and do both 22 calibers.

    Check out the G Tool or GTUL. I forget how they spell it. Its a tool that squeezes the sides of the mag while you depress the pin. It also comes with a nylon brush for the inside of the mag.

    Loaded 200 rounds of 380ACP with 105 swc and 2 grains of Red Dot. LCP eats this thing up especially with the fiancÚ carrying it every day now. She actually shoots the tiny pistol pretty well.

    Loaded 100 270 Winchester with Lee 277-135RF over 10 grains of Red Dot with a Lee dipper and a 310 tool. Using that tool is relaxing.

    Dad has always been partial to Lawn Boy mowers. He's had two over the last 25 years, both self propelled walk behinds. They have a pretty good push bar system for the throttle. The its a sliding bar that moves up and down where you put your hands on...

    sigep1764 replied to a thread 100 yard accuracy in Rimfire Area
    Some people can do it, but I think that 3x9EFR is holding you back. I have a CZ455 with a Mueller that is a 8-32x44 and it is wonderful. I have only shot it at 25 and 50 yards but it is night and day versus a 3-9x40. Parallax is adjustable as well...

    My lone semiautomatic 22lr is a Marlin Model 60. Have had a Remington 597 and a Ruger 10/22. By far the Marlin is the keeper for me. Beautiful bluing, very consistent trigger, shoots everything(really likes CCI SV), and is the right size. Can be had...

    Agree with Petrol. Lathesmith made me one for my SDB which works in the 550 as well. My OEM Dillon funnel plug expanded the brass .353 for 9mm allowing the brass to swage down my boolits. The one he made for me expands deeper and wider without...
