    GARD72977: I've been very happy with the way my 357 Handi shoots 38spl. This is far easier on the pocket book than some of the options you are considering. I too, would enjoy a 32cal. single shot rifle. I'm hoping Henry decides to chamber their...

    gpidaho replied to a thread Sabot for 308 Shoots 223 in Swaging
    BlackoutBuilder; As you know 4895 can be down loaded to 50% density. You might give that a try or I would just load a few over a small charge of TiteGroup. They don't seem to shoot too well anyway so plinking a few rounds for fun with about 6 or...

    Hogtamer. The half moon clip is fine and the final crimp die works fine if the shell has been sized while knocking out primers When using new primed hulls (RIO) the opening in the final crimp die is just a little too small in I.D to accept the new...

    Thanks Tatume. This is the newest addition to my accumulation. It's a twenty gauge and once again an ebay find. It's pretty much like a Mec in function and can use Mec powder bars and bushings. I loaded a few rounds with it and it seems to be in...

    rancher1913; I don't own any of the zavarog moulds so this is just something that works with the large base pins of my Lyman moulds and HP pins on a few others. Using a Q-tip when the pins are hot, apply a thin coat of dielectric silicon grease....

    roysha and I have been trying to figure out just what press these might fit. If you look at the C&H press you can see the slide bar on the C&H is round not square as Roy's bar. The bushings are similar but both the O.D and height are different. ...

    I can see that the Russians are going to be tampering with my bank account. That company has four or five moulds I'd like to have. I think first up will be their adjustable weight .410 slug mould. Gp

    Yep Scott, I already filled the bases of four of the slugs with hot glue and I have about every card and wad BPI offers (That's a big exaggeration, just seems like it.) First try will be with a nitro card in the wad under the filled slug. I wish it...

    Randy. Wad guide is just fine on this press(at least not broken) but I'll watch out for it. The powder bushing is FAR from Red Dot, sadly as it drops around a whopping 40+ grains of Blue Dot. I've had a couple of friendly and helpful comebacks on...

    I received a few samples of these slugs in today's mail. Thank you Scott. Pushing them through the cylinder choke (.730) a Federal 12S3 and a WAA12 wad seems a real good fit. The Claybuster #CB 1100-12 is a bit loose. I might try the CB's through...

    I know this is a long shot, I recently purchased and refurbished a C&H 12ga. shotgun shell reloading press. It came with a 1 1/8 shot bushing and one LARGE powder bushing. If any of you have any of these powder bushings that you would part with...

    Thanks for the warning Randy. I'm always interested in oddities and this just caught my eye. The powder-shot bushings are just thin metal tubes and I only have the two that came in the slide. I'll try to figure out a useful load with what I have...

    Sorry for the double post. I'm still figuring out this tapatalk business on my cell phone. No cyphering done yet but the slide bar drops just short of 1 1/8 oz. of shot and around 27gr. of powder depending on the powder of course. (I just tried...
