    I think I'll stick to my RCBS bench primer.I doubt if I can break the frame or any other part on it.

    Check eBay.The last Lyman 450 I bought cost $66.00 with dies and top punch still installed.All of the Lymans are strong enough.Problems start when users start doing things they were never intended for.I have six Lyman lube sizers of various...

    Simply load by the weight of the bullet with any powder suitable for the .30-06.Unless they're really ancient bullets the tracer will ignite.

    I have a Rock Chucker Supreme.It's still in the box.I'll have to look at it.As far as I know it's made in the US.I have an older Rock Chucker as well but I mostly use a Ammo Master single stage for most of my reloading.The items that RCBS and Lyman...

    I have never had a problem with Lyman molds whether they they were old or new production.I can't say the same for Lee molds.I doubt if any of the current production molds are made in China.

    The best way to test any scope for durability is install it on a higher powered spring piston air rifle.If it survives that it will stand the recoil of any rifle that the average person would be willing to fire.I'm not sure I would try a Leupold on...

    Molds made to use a zinc washer on the base of the bullet.Info is found in older Lyman reloading manuals.Hawk Inc still has the zinc washers for sale at $42.00/1000.Do a search for Harvey ProT-X bore bullets.

    I would work from the IMR 4064 data if I had nothing else.Apparently AA4064 is slightly slower burning than IMR 4064

    I would go with the Forster.I've had mine for around thirty years and would not consider anything else.The Shars device is nothing but a X-Y table attachment for a drill press.If you only have one or two firearms to drill and tap find a gunsmith.The...

    Looks interesting.I would prefer not to have the precast holes.I used to have a casting for a Sharps Borschardt receiver.It was just a solid casting that would have required the same machining as a forging.My employer gave it to me.After checking...
