    Were uou using the Makarov die as a push through or with a normal shell holder? Point of using it as a push through is that it sizes all the way down to the rim. If you don't have the bulge buster kit, you could use a bullet sizer pushrod or...

    I used to use the Herter's copy of that scale, same finish and everything. Didn't realize it was oil dampened until I gave up on its long swing time and bought a used Ohaus 505. I've since sent it along on a PIF to a new reloader, explaining that...

    I've loaded my Yugo TT with the Lyman 313249 and the Mihec 314-98 SWC with good accuracy. The SWC cut a clean hole through the broken skillet I found on the berm. I also want to try the NOE 315-89 WC as my pistol will feed an empty case.

    Good to know that a 3 1/2" shell won't hurt the gun, just me. For the record, I didn't expect the Limbsaver would make a huge difference in recoil, I bought it mostly to increase the length of pull, it does live in a youth model stock. What I...

    I have a Pardner shotgun I purchased from a gun show. It started life as a youth model .410 (at least that's how t came to me). I have aslo fitted it with a second-hand 12 Gauge barrel with a 3 1/2" chamber. I have only shot 1 3 1/2" shell from...
