    I know this is introducing another topic but it is really sad that so many young folks are oblivious to the great machines of our youth and before. It is so hard to find kids who want to learn how to use their hands these days. Very sad indeed.

    Can you imagine making a mistake with one of those machines? Scrap a 3 or 4 ton precision part? Ugh. Great thread. Been very educating and fun to read.

    I looked up some Lyman Hand sizing dies on eBay and you are correct. They look exactly like that. These are 1" in diameter. Is that what the Lyman hand sizing dies are? I am going to measure the "sized" case that the 30-06 die sizes. It sure looks...

    I haven't done any tests. I have several types of 22lr ammo. I have noticed a difference between some old 80's Remington Vipers and new Remington Golden bullets. The new ones say on the box "new cleaner". Indeed I noticed that they were cleaner than...

    OK Folks I bought it. He agreed to ship. $40 total with a 223 factory crimp die. It is indeed home made. It came with two dies 300 Savege and 30-06. I tried squeezing a used 30-06 case in the die. Even with the screw handle 18 inches long, I...

    If one were to acquire the brass for 25rf (new or used) it could be reloaded. Since I have made all of the dies and developed a process for 22rf it would be fairly easy for me to reload 25's or any other rim fire caliber.

    Thanks rl69. Great insight. Very encouraging. We need to study the character of Christ. If we are to be yoked with him, knowledge of his wondrous character will be the bond. "His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness...

    So you would be interested in the belt feed upgrade for an extra $40? That way you can attach an ammo can full of rounds (if you like).

    This is only MY OPINION: There are many Christians nowadays that see "traditional Christianity" as evil "legalism". They believe in a progressive Christianity. I had been in a church like that for several years. To me they are very poorly informed...

    I had an experience with a Heritage Mfg Rough Rider. I sent in the gun because the painted aluminum frame had scratches on it, AND, more importantly the firing pin was just barley hitting the rim. This left the firing pin hitting the cylinder just...

    Since the specific gravity of lead is over 11 and of lapping compound under 4, I would say that the lapping compound would float on the lead like a cork on the water. Skimming should do the trick.
