    When the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and behold, horror and great darkness fell upon him. GENESIS 15:12 Whenever God gives a vision to a Christian, it is as if He puts him in “the shadow of His hand” (Isaiah 49:2). The...

    I would have been happy with dropping them in one at a time from a bunch in my left hand but I kept letting one slip out of the side of my hand into the sized catch bin...then I'd have to go looking for it!

    Yeah...I can run any profile of any pistol caliber and they feed perfectly, but when I drop a FWC in the tube all bets are off. I tried different length tubes with different profiles on the delivery end, even tried a higher angle of the...

    The only drawback to my tube feeding the die is this... I can't get a FWC to hit the hole and go in every time...dang it all!

    Lapping the die was intended to open our dies only .001~.003" to adjust a proper sized die for the caliber. Not really for changing calibers. Also you will want to determine what type of Pb blend you want results from...soft Pb to Linotype will...

    Mounting a press upside down is just the first step in trying to get more production in the time you spend sizing. Why? Because you can feed the press faster compared to standing the cast on the push post and sizing that way...dropping the cast into...

    I don't think it makes any difference at all...starting with steel or aluminum. You have several aspects to learn about casting, have to learn what effect each has on the pot, the mould and what that does to the casts. * You must manage the pot...
