    I’m surprised that the trap didn’t work. I saw that video the other day while trying to figure out a resolution to hornets that built a nest attached to our house. It would seemed it worked, with video proof! It’s odd it didn’t work for you. ...

    Archibald - when you say you wait for the scale to get stable, you wait for the audible beep, correct? Mine for a while was taking quite some time with the 50gram weight to calibrate. I did not at one point that it was slightly out of level, but...

    Just an FYI - that is the older style powder measure. While I have used both, successfully, people do notice down-the-road that the powder measure is not the failsafe version. Dillon makes a conversion kit for their measures though if you wanted...

    Though that is mostly true (shellholders sometimes need flipped, semantics!), I enjoy using and hearing about these stories! I love my Co-ax, but I also find loads (pun) of fun using old and interesting equipment!

    I am a huge fan of Federal bulk boxes - be it 525ct boxes or the 325ct AutoMatch. Whenever things were scarce, I did manage to find some Remington bulk boxes. While they shoot well, they were dirty. Especially in the Model 60. I still have quite...

    On too many occasions, I have found 9mm fires in 40s. I can’t say I have ever found a .357Sig fires in one though!

    I also use 4-0 steel wool to clean my dies. The thought of putting dies in a stainless media tumbler doesn’t exactly give me the best feeling. I suppose I have no evidence to such thoughts, but I would think them bouncing off one another isn’t...

    I agree that the RCBS Chargemaster Combo is worth every penny. There are more expensive options, and less expensive options. The combos can be had for around $200 used, and were even close to that new earlier this year with the promotions that...

    I agree that it is worth every penny. I use it for all rifle rounds, most revolver rounds, and for all load development. Here is the link for reprogramming: https://www.primalrights.com/library/articles/re-programming-rcbs-chargemaster-combo

    I was wondering the same thing, wrench man. I’ve probably read all the same articles as well! I managed to find 19 pieces locally, but would like more. I also thought about forming, but am holding out currently hoping I find more!

    I have to ask - where on the case is the brass difficult to chamber? (i.e. top of the brass where the bullet is seated, or base of brass closer to the case head?). And are you saying .357s load fine, but the 38s don’t? I realize these may be...
