    I don't use that powder much but everything I have heard or read says it needs pressure to burn correctly. So not good for reduced loads, very good in a narrow band of top end loads. Myself I don't like the hand abuse so I seldom want a full power...

    I thought mine was a strong reaction in buying 8# of varget instead of replacing 3 bottles of 1# I used. Rick was that the Monroe show? I wanted to go but had a family thing. Ah yes. The 22 rimfire. I think I'm going to market t-shirts that...

    Well I have deprimed 1000 of the 38 specials. 500 more to go. I normally just do a squirt of dawn. Maybe a seconds worth. About like doing a sink full of dishes in the bad old days before automatic dishwashers. :-) I estimated that as around...

    Nothing against AR's but seems like their popularity with buyers makes it so a lot of table space gets devoted to them. Every so often there will be some equipment but mostly the same few vendors will bring in a press or two, some scales that sort...

    Looking at new .31 ball mold for shot and Lyman slug mold as I work through de-priming 1,500 38 special cases in preparation for a test of wet tumbling with stainless steel. Specifically pin to brass weight ratio. Fancy way of saying I needed to...

    You want to know when SHTF or EOTWAWKI will happen? My best guess is about a week after I become debt free by paying off the mortgage and car and all store and credit cards. So my advice is don't worry about that sort of scenario, I'm sure between...

    Just wondering. Know someone that went to Monroe Mich. show said it was busy but did not seem to have panic buying of supplies going on. I'm planning to take grandson to one next weekend so he can look at some wall hanger swords and the "cool...

    Online the retailers can move more volume and they know online shoppers can price compare their price against the competitions in about a minute. I checked 3 places to order an 8# jug and some primers. The prices all came out within about $5 of...

    I bookmarked that link those are nice boxes at a good price. I use the cheap ones and the top always wanting to be closed is sort of annoying will try the blow dryer to see if that can be changed but eventually those ones from Midsouth look like a...

    Man I like that, changes the whole cost picture of shooting C&B revolver. I'm ok with the musket since it is not fired as many times but the pistol does go through some caps.

    The reason to trim straight walled pistol brass for revolver is if one is loading mixed range p/u or purchased mixed head stamp 1x fired brass. Getting them all to same length once makes the roll crimp consistent. After that first trim it is...

    is that brass weight or pin weight? Not sure who or which post you are referencing. Personally I was doing brass from the 30's and 40's that had sat around in a brass bucket for who knows how long. Brass itself is getting close to 90 years...

    I recently ran some pretty dirty brass from the 1930's and 40's and found it was taking a fairly long cleaning time. Over 2 hours. I may have been putting too much water in. Standing on end the water was a few inches above the brass and pins,...

    I might put in a good word for a Lee classic cast turret. I keep turret disks set up for sizing and de-priming so I can deal with trimming and pocket swaging of military using a CH4D die. Just lift out the auto indexing rod before I drop in the...

    The calibers would be done in own batch. I think the pins increase the chance of a wedged case if anything can fit inside anything else. Unlike corncob or crushed walnut hulls the steel pins do NOT have any give to allow you to get the stuck inner...
