    I've been thinking of getting a copy of the 3rd ed Cast Handbook from them for a while but haven't gotten around to it yet. Good to see that so many have already given Cornell such high marks.

    My Yugo SKS is the type with the flip-up night sights, the Radium paint style. The front does not glow anymore, the phosphor is likely "burnt out" from the radiation, and the paint from the rear sight has been lost to the ravages of time. I know I...

    How exactly did you track down the cause of your leakage? Maybe mine was leaking for the same reason as yours and my sheild works like a gasket? I do use the adjustable charge bar, so that could be a source of differences, too. In any event, I'm...

    Update: I just completed the most rigorous (short) test I could think of. Loaded 5 .44 Magnums with Win 296 powder. Weighed out 207.1 grains and added to the measure. Weighed each charge, the 5 used as well as the several thrown back into the...
