    Iowa Fox replied to a thread Black walnuts in Our Town

    Just make sure the press is complete with all the parts they sold with new otherwise you will spent a lot of money for missing items. Dillon doesn't warranty lost or missing parts.

    Iowa Fox replied to a thread Lyman Spartan in Reloading Equipment
    You are correct about the set screw. I bought my Spartan in the last couple of months in 1969. With a set of dies it was 19 dollars and some cents. I still have the box and all the paperwork that came with it. I always kept it clean and well...

    Sounds just like my wife. When she pulls them back out of the oven after the butter & brown sugar she lets them cool a little and gives them just a light drizzle of fresh fall honey. Beef Rump roast, mashed new potatoes, gravy, and the squash. Just...

    I've really hit a brick wall on this one. Unless I can find a new old stock pushed in a corner some place( very unlikely) or a house getting torn down, or one at one of the salvage places, I'm SOL. The joints are to complicated to reproduce as a one...

    I like the precision mic for measuring head space. As far as I'm concerned the base to ogive thimble is worthless. RCBS should stop packaging it and charge less for the head space gage. If anyone can use the ogive gage with any degree of accuracy...

    The 450's were good press's and were a constant progression of changes along the way. Just because its a 450 don't assume parts from another 450 will fit, chances are good they won't. To adjust the powder charge use a box end or open end wrench and...
