    it does. but it takes more effort to full length size cases than using a rock chuck type press. I use mine for seating and neck sizing only.

    I'd separate the brass by brand and see if a trend pops up. if it's totally random I would try another brand of primer. if after all that I would look at the pistol itself.

    citrus cleaner would probably work. I generally get mine hot. then hit them with a citrus de-greaser, fill the cavity's with it, wipe it all down with a rag, then blast it with some brake cleaner real quick. then give it some run time to make...

    definitely work with the 38 first. just dump them on a towel and don't admire your work until you have at least 30 cycles through the mold. focus on the basics of casting... mainly maintaining a constant mold temperature, filling the mold, and...

    I thought Ben Avery was a shot gun range. at least that is the only way I have seen it referred to.

    it will give you the percentages of what is in the block. make sure they shoot a clean spot. the machine should read out something like 98% Pb 1.0% Sb .5% Sn .3% Cu some iron probably, maybe some calcium, and maybe even a little Zinc. it won't...

    dang I wish I'd have known it was Maxim powder. of course then I woulda been the guy that was out 4500$ too. I kind of figured it was repackaged 'generic' titegroup at the time.

    I'd work with the 4227. I am thinking you can get close to 8grs with the carbine length tube.

    the 550 shell holders/plates are the same as the 450's. on the old push-pull 450 powder measure there is a screw you turn on the back of the housing away from the black knob. in=more, out=less weight. you can buy the parts and upgrade the...

    .003 is a mile when your squeezing lead. try core seating into a jacket with .003 clearance. you won't need the ejector. but you'll have nicks in the jacket from pulling it off the stem.

    less amounts of a faster powder. or more of a too slow powder. I'm assuming this is an AR so never mind the too little of a too fast powder, and focus on slowing the powder down. 4227 at 10 grs would be right about below the speed of sound.
