    I ended up recutting the chamber of one of my 300BLK uppers (I have 2) into a 30 Apache (7.62x45) which is the 223Rem case opened up to 30 caliber. It limits the bullets to 150gr or smaller (I prefer to load it with 110 and 125gr spirepoints but I...

    Well I thought so. I tell you what I really want to do is to find an old SXS and send off to have some microgrooves cut 1-80 in the barrels. I think that'd be sweet as sourwood honey.

    I don't know the answer to this, and its something I struggle with. If I preach too hard, it drives people away. If I participate too much it wreaks havoc with my own walk. What to do? Well, I wonder if I didn't come closer the other day. My...

    Hey, I'm around. Just busier than a frog hoppin in a skillet. I told Brice1985 to check this out, and pay attention to longbow. Looks like I've still got it. :wink: Now I tried the 687 round balls in the shotcup, but I got far better precision...

    I hope the pot will work for you. I got it right from a guy that was getting out of the hobby and I haven't tried it yet, but it's a Lyman, and Lyman is good stuff. The advice I gave you was tuned specifically to your interest in round ball loads,...

    I own a PA10 and I had to go back and recheck my sizing die setup on my reloads as I was having problems almost the same as you. The bullets would feed in my 308 Bolt rifles but not in the AR. I went back and determined that the PA10's barrel...

    The Ruger SBH is a stout gun. In mine using 265-270-grain cast bullets I use the STARTING loads listed in Speer 13 for 240-grain jacketed and have had good results, not loosened the gun or blown anything up. Current H110 is the same as 296, so...

    FWIW "gunshow" prices for used molds in good condition with no rust, here are about half of the typical Internet site price for a new mold of the same type. That being "asking" prices, and not "getting" prices. Your mileage may vary, but this...

    What you report is fairly typical for .22 LR revolver chambers. The key to getting good accuracy from a .22 revolver is to select ammunition having the largest bullet diameter, so as to get a better fit. Waxed or the older greased...

    Current production Ruger .30 Carbine Blackhawk accepts .32-20 handloads in Starline brass of 1.28-1.285" length with no mods and shoots well. Fired .32-20 brass of other manufacture may need to be trimmed.

    Been wanting one of these to play with. I want to box the frame, add a thicker base, and relocate the linkages to the top of the press. I want to build sort of a miniature Redding 700. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    In a shop I would use a 1.0000" gauge block to verify it at 1", and a 0.1000" block at the low end. If it is correct at zero or with feeler gauges, then that should be good enough for measuring bullets. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    A long jump in revolvers only hurts if the cylinder throats are oversized and when bullets don't fit. When cylinder throats are groove diameter to +0.0015 over, bullets fit throats and chamber barrel alignment/indexing are correct, gun will shoot.

    A bullet I have used with great success for subsonic loads in most .30 cal. rifles is the Accurate 31-155D, which is pictured: For a fragmenting bullet which will break up at subsonic velocities you want to cast in an alloy of 6-8 BHN such as...
