    Sounds like they did---for you. To bad you had to talk down the 1911, not a slam on you, just don't see the need for it to be done.

    This morning I had some errands I needed to run, and the time to get them done, so I loaded the car up, and tossed the contender in .22 LB in the trunk as well. After going to the post office, and bringing some gas to my mother to keep the...

    You wouldn't be alone! Although some of the targets are so small, a trade gun is really put to task. Olives at 25 yards, anyone? Plus shooting through the loops on a pretzel without breaking them!

    ill put it this way. Ive seen my mother chasing a black bear off her back deck with a broom. I don't think shed be stupid enough to do that with a grizzly bear. I live where there are a lot of black bears. For the most part you don't even see them...

    maybe if you weighted every charge but if you don't the ball powder is going to be much more consistant. Especially I a small case like the 223. If you want a change of pace give ramshot exterminator a crack. I found it shot better in the 223s and...

    Here is a write up by a tester and comp shooter I got of the internet (I know the internet) the last sentence about sums it up. One of the big topics in the Gun rags is the new 6.5 Creedmoore cartridge. It's the usual yada, yada, yada. It's...

    my point exactly. I don't punch paper other then for load development. I kill deer and other animals. To many variables in the field to shoot living animals out past 500 yards. Ive done it in the past but a few times paid the price (the animal did)...

    An adjustable core mold is sufficient, since the swaging die will do the work of giving the bullet it's shape anyways. I've messed a lot with PC'ing a core and then sawging it. It just plain works.

    Yes, also the slight misalignment of punch and die can make the sizing non-concentric.

    Check the Agate bearings (no cuts dings or wear ) They should move freely up and down (just a tad) in there holders. Also check the knife edges on the beam, should be sharp and smooth, the angle on them should be even on both sides V Leval the...

    The only issue is concentricity. unsupported bullets can get lopsided as they're pushed through too small a die. It's especially easy to see on long rifle bullets. I don't have any photos, but imagine a mildly banana shaped bullet...

    The twist is fine. Just treat it like a sore pecker, and don't screw with it.

    I've loaded enough different chamberings over the years, much of it is now second nature. From the case capacity and bullet weight and design for a particular bore size, I have a darned good idea of which primers and powder will work best. I seldom...

    looking at that article it shows the 308 only 4 inches lower at 800 yards. Anyone else grasp the reality that that's only one click of elevation more and wouldn't even matter on a center of rib cage shot on a deer at 800 yards!!! Also only one inch...
