    I swage 22 brass into 55gr bullets the duds that I find I pull the bullets and use them as well. I SS pin with water to clean them before I de rim you would think tumbling in a tank full of water and soap would kill the primer plus it was a dud to...

    Not a bad tip I may have to look into that right now I have some foam cut at a angle I lay a towel on so the bullets roll down a hill nice and soft. The only time I have a problem is with 405 gr and 247 rifle they are long and hold heat so deform...

    BHuig Read what the ballistic engineer Brian Litz wrote about how much that excess spin affects your bullets accurazy at 1000 yards. Bryan Litz says: July 25, 2013 at 7:24 am For practical purposes, the answer is FALSE As a bullet arcs on...

    That's good they do. It's like cars, what is it, they have to make parts for 10 years? DPMS still has some of their older type AR10 stuff. I wish they would have standardized them meaning all the manufacturers. This is probably the reason...

    So I have always thought that the accuracy loss at too-high RPMs was a result of the boolit destabilizing. It sounds like I was basically attributing cause and effect improperly. The boolit will not destabilize when spun too fast, but accuracy is...

    Some states, it's the sheriff. Other states, it's the state police. in Louisiana, you never deal with the sheriff unless for finger printing. The state police are the ones issuing the permits for us.

    Well DPMS kind of de-standardized their "old style DPMS" with their new Gen II. Have you looked at the differences?

    Your bullets have to harden a little before sizing them. They are soft and very weak. The nose sides can swell from pressure put on the tip of the nose by the nose punch. That's mainly in luber/sizers, not so much in push through. I'm not talking...

    My five-inch Colt Police Positive Special was made in 1924 and has a 0.005 cylinder gap. The pooled average of seven different samples of factory .32-20 loads was 814 fps. This defines a sensible velocity limit for these old guns when assembling...

    Do not size your bullets directly out of the mold after they cool. They are still weak. Wait about a day. If you aren't letting them age for two weeks you're wasting your time. You have a 5.56 NATO chamber on that AR (believe me) and you need to...

    My "go-to" bullet in all of my .44s is the Accurate 43-230G, which is a double-crimp-groove design: Use the rear crimp groove to seat out long in .44 Special brass to increase powder capacity, or to exploit the longer cylinder length of Ruger...

    Rim diameter on the 9x23 is .394. The rim on a 38 Super with the old style semi-rimmed case is .406. The rim on the 40 S&W is .424. The rim on the 10mm is .425.. The difference between the 10mm and the 9x23 rims is .031 so you divide that by 2 to...
