    I believe that depends on the strength of the laser. I am more familiar with the industrial ones. In some case they can be used as an engrave or a laser cutter. ...

    If you opt to have the sight marked laser engraving is the way to go.

    A wildcat based on a 30/30 operating at higher pressures could be a problem. SAAMI 30/30 or under loads not so much. Also for calculating breech thrust it's the internal area of the case not the rim diameter that matters. The SAAMI spec for...

    Do you have any first hand knowledge of a 30/30 stretching a Contender frame? I have personally seen stretched frames from the 375 Win and the 45/70 but never in 30/30 or 7-30 Waters. The 375 Win is the only one that I am aware of that could...

    It’s not that difficult or expensive to reproduce. Much less expensive than other methods that will have you repeating to .02 grains. If you already have a beam scale the sensor is less than $15 shipped to you. https://www.ebay.com/p/1053390233...

    While reloading as a gift does have a possible liability concern the same can be said for cooking a meal for someone or giving someone a ride in your car.

    A gift is personal use. The gift was produced as a gift and not for produced for livelihood or profit. While finding example of reloading are more challenging it is easy to find the BATF view on what "personal use" is relating to the occasional...

    The swinglock design is for sabotless smokeless muzzleloader shooting. It's a barrel section used to impart the actual rifle into the jacketed bullet. That is called full form. They also make a smooth die that doesn't impart rifling into the...

    I am very impressed that worked. Annual cutters just cut at the angle you hold the hand drill. I suppose if your threads are not too tight the shoulder will be what matters but that’s still impressive, it’s square enough with the bore.

    Very nice. Christmas is coming up and I know one little guy that would really enjoy something like this. Been helping him with a cartridge collection for the last year or so. Is the Arduino code something you would share?

    I tried to get ahold of him years ago, to no avail. Did you test it well before, so you know how much better it is when you get it back? I played around with photo electric switches and one of my stock 10-10’s and could resolve to the kernel....

    Yes, when things are the most basic they can be, they can be useful for many tasks. Not unlike the “wheel” or a flat blade screwdriver (“prying thingy” to any one born after 1990...or ‘80’s?)

    First being rimmed or rimless has zero bearing on the OP's issue of the primer backing out. Shoulder setback is not an issue per the OP and it shouldn't be based on it being a rimmed cartridge. Drilling flash holes is done for a variety of reasons...

    I have both and I prefer the 7-30 Waters. I reload for over 50 calibers and I greatly dislike brass that is not properly head stamped. For brass I use Federal since that is the only one that is marked 7-30 Waters. Factory loaded is still...

    It's a low pressure side effect. You have at least workable three solutions. Increase the pressure enough that the primers reseat, use O-rings on the case or as Larry suggested drill the flashhole. The 303 headspaces on the rim but the issue is...

    They loaded and chambered once so the necks can't be vastly oversize. First I would measure the necks to see what you have. It almost sounds like you have expander ball adjusted to high into the neck?
