    I have several automated 1050’s, I thought about doing one of my 650’s but they just are not the same machine. The swage station makes all the difference in the world. Not to mention on the 650 you need the stroke precise on both ends as actions...

    When steel first came out lots of people reloaded it using standard shotcups. The shot would push thru the pedals and leave grooves starting at the forcing cone. On the ones I have seen it was worse at the chamber end.

    I am not sure how many deer I have killed with a .243 but it is around 50 or 60. Mostly with 100 grain softs points. Never lost one with it and never had to track one over 75 yards. Snow with a crust on it is great for tracking. Fresh fluffy...

    Steel shot in wads not designed for steel will do that. When steel shot was first mandated I saw a couple of barrels like that.

    Deer in cold climates tend to have larger bodies than deer in warm areas. About 20 years ago a whitetail buck I shot won two large deer contests. One paid $300 and the other paid $200. They went by weight. That was in North Dakota. It went 248...

    No more than ten years? That used to be a long time, when I was in grade school. I have socks that are older than that now. Stored properly decades old ammunition and or components are perfectly fine.

    If you size them more than you need to, for them to fit the chamber and fire them, they blow out. Then you over size them again and they are too long. Keep doing this without checking wall thickness in this area and he will have case head...

    I guess that depends on the “us”. I have loaded rounds on the above Lee that are 3/8 MOA so the fact that it flexes doesn’t bother me and I have won lots of matches with ammunition loaded with numerous aluminum presses. I was just answering the...

    I got some off eBay. Go slow RPM and it’s not a problem to drill and even tap grade 8 bolts. I have done hundreds making differential screws putting left handthreads down the center of right hand bolts.

    Aluminum costs more than steel or cast iron per pound. One good reason to use it though is tool life and the speed at which you can machine it.

    Everything can flex, you can measure it or even run an FEA on it and see where/why. That said there have been billions of rounds loaded on machines that flex more than the most ridged one ever made. As far as material goes there are lots of...
