    You can thank (or cuss out) SAAMI for that adulteration circa 1990. Gunmakers wanted to install 357 Magnum loads into J-frame S&Ws and 44 Magnum into repro 1873 Winchester leverguns, so the pressures were reduced for all of the Magnum revolver...

    That ones a skoosh heavier then the Russian knockoff of the 10 gauge version of the Lyman Sabot mold I have . And of course a good bit less in diameter since I can load it in the SP-10 wad with the petals intact . If my memory serves it weighs...

    In various asundry leveraction rifles I’ve used straight air cooled wheel weights and in some WW’s water quenched . When I cast slugs for shotguns they are typically half wheel weights and half pure lead . The two sizes of Buckshot I cast are...

    Would this stand up to a bore that is less than perfectly smooth? My only mint bore rifle is a two-groove - would it work in that?

    This ol' thread is almost 10 years old......very nice. I have a real affinity for the Mauser milsurp bolt rifle calibers, and for the company's Africa-intended 9.3 x 62. The calibers are efficient, and in good barrels they can really shoot...

    Ever since I read Ed's thread on 2400 in the military calibers, I've been playing with an 8mm using the following: Cases: various, including formed 30-06. Powder: 18 grains, 2400. Bullet: 214 grain Loverin style (don't remember the Lyman...

    About those label makers.... My wife bought on for me at Christmas time and I made labels for my Dillon turret storage bases. I can tell at a glance which caliber is needed, BUT I noticed the other day that the labels are beginning to peel!...

    Well, since my original, loaned out copy isn't coming back....I found one on Ebay and bought it. Upon re-reading it for the first time in years, I notice that Ed McGivern was one very verbose guy! Sentences that could explain something in ten words...

    I have a box of Sisk .22's also, stashed away in my box of "interesting stuff". Just the address on the box itself speaks of a small producer, maybe out of his garage at the time!

    That idea of wood "clamps" and a grit cut off wheel appeals to me. I've tried several tubing cutters, but they all gave me the same problem....wandering, because the cases are tapered. This resulted in some pretty weird cases that required major...

    It's a crimper for paper shells...........and don't be deceived by "Ebay hype". Thousands of these things were made and thousands are still out there, hardly qualifying them as "rare", "vintage" and "valuable". On thing I've noticed about the old...

    A well-made 1911-pattern pistol in 9mm is a VERY NICE THING, indeed.

    For cast you probably should be looking at a five-groove.

    I got down to the bottom of my primer storage box and found three boxes of those, small pistol. I knew the approximate time period, but were they still good? I loaded a few rounds of 9mm and they all went bang...... I used to consider such things...

    The SIG Model P-210 is one of those "Grail Guns" for me to dream about having. I actually came close to owning an older variant of this model about 15 years ago. It was for sale in a presentation case assembled in 9mm, and had swap barrel and...

    Harbor freight. I drilled a hole in a round piece of aluminum the same diameter of the brass. I mounted this piece to a support, in my case I use a RCBS case trimmer base without any of the cutting tools or shell holders mounted to it. The hole...
