    If I'm not mistaken several years ago there was a push to change the priming compound to a new improved environmental friendly compound - that had me concerned . But I suppose we won't know for years if it matters , and primers don't last long in my...

    I shoot the 311-165 NOE plan base out of a 30-30 Sears Chester with LG pistol primers & a charge of 8.7 gr of unique , it's not subsonic , but you don't need ear protection - it doesn't hurt to wear the ear muffs anyway . They drop like a lead...

    I only have one 10 cavity , and I don't have a problem casting with it under my 4/20 lee at a angle . It empties the pot so fast I get plenty of breaks while filling the pot , but I probably only use it a couple times a year . A group buy is...

    My last big run with a lee trimmer resulted in brass galling on the shaft that grabbed on the necks while spinning , but I trimmed a lot of brass . Something to keep a eye on .

    I use the lee cutter on several different rifle cartridges , it works pretty simply and does the job . As mentioned above a battery powered low speed drill really helps when trimming over a box or so , remember brass cases need to be resized before...

    I opened up the sear slot a little more in front of the sear - it was a close if not touching . So close that a little twisting of the trigger mechanism could interfere with the sear being pushed down during firing . I'll give it a shot in the...

    I put a Timmey Featherweight Mauser 98 FN trigger in it , but I thought I had fired it with the original barrel and new trigger , but I can't be sure . This could be a issue - I'll find out because I just put the Timmy back in it .

    I just came in from trying a couple rounds that I pulled and loaded in cases with different primers and they both fired so I'm going to set up at the bench to try a few more . Strangely I have been using the win primers in my 30-30 & 7x57 cast loads...
