    I'm sure it will work better for you, may have to work up your new load with the primer change though. Keep in touch and good shooting!:2 drunk buddies:

    I agree with Preacher Jim on the 22-250 parent brass. I cut back 308 Win brass and lost a lot of case volume and that caused me to have to lower my max powder use as I was popping primers with normal pressure loads with 120 grain A-Max bullets. I...

    Interesting thread... I'm not familiar with the RP9, nor am I with PC. My best results in 9mm with cast have been in NATO STANAG 4090 chamber, with conventional lubricant, shooting as large a bullet as will chamber, best being H&G#7 124 grain at 13...

    EASY way to make "spreader" loads is to drive a wooden toothpick through the crimp, mash it down as far as it will go, then snap it off and trim flush to the folded crimp with a pocket knife. My Daddy was a clever Redneck and Hillbilly!

    OlDeuce a couple days ago you were in the mid 30'sF ??, that 748 was cold man! I don't think those large pistol primers are up to the task, maybe a LR primer or a 350 CCI would get it burning. .02 Why pistol primers with 748, most manuals show...

    Herco is a great over looked powder. Remember Alliant cleaned their powder line up and the are not as dirt as they once were. It's interesting to note that in some instances there is data where you load more of Unique then the Herco. That strikes me...

    You really can ignore the "wrong powders, wrong bullet weights" if you use a Schuster adjustable gas plug within reason! They have them for the M1A's too.

    You are correct you can load any number of shells from 1 to 7 and it's not that hard. Once you learn it's easy. Another thing too, some Garand, not all, you can load an 8 round enbloc, don't let the action close, then place a loaded round in the...

    Padding and baffles absorb the sound reflections and therefore reducing the overall average Reverb time. Suppressors reduce the gas pressure and let it escape into the atmosphere more slowly at a much lesser pressure. It does nothing for the sonic...
