    Taterhead replied to a thread deriming 22lr cases in Swaging
    Intrigued. Would an Ultramag press be advantageous to this operation? Of my presses, that's probably the one I'd use.

    Taterhead replied to a thread .223 brass... in Cast Boolits
    There are two methods of dealing with primer pocket crimps. They can look like 3 little stakes, or can be a circular ring. LC and most of the commercial crimps will be the latter. 1) ream them. Basically cut out the crimp 2) Swage them....

    Taterhead replied to a thread .223 brass... in Cast Boolits
    Yah, the only reason to buy 223 rifle brass is if you want a specific head stamp and a known history. Some like premium brass for high precision work. Me, I've never bought a 223 case. I can't remember even buying 223 factory ammo. So 100% of my 223...

    I've recently been working with the following bullets cast from newish Lee 6 cav molds. All have a little bevel base: 356-125-2R 356-120-TC 452-200-SWC (H&G 68 clone) The 6 cav molds are much better quality than the 2 hole mold that I have....

    Got my Pro Melt back from RCBS. Before shipping it, I removed the hardware like the fulcrum, shut-off pin, handle and etc to save shipping weight. So it was a surprise to find that they shipped it back with pretty much all new hardware. Now I have...

    It is pretty easy, actually. Step 1. Decide if you need a rifle or pistol plug. Step 2, note your boolit diameter. Select an expander plug where the boolit's diameter falls in between the two dimensions provided by NOE. The larger diameter...

    You didn't ask me, but I can help with the answer... The simple answer is, no. The Lyman expanders have a threaded expander assembly, not unlike Redding and RCBS expanders. By the way, RCBS handgun expander plugs have been M style for a few...

    The beauty of the NOE expanders is that they have so many in-between sizes that it is easy to tailor the interior neck diameter to be the prices size for a custom boolit diameter. I also like the way that the M profiles shapes a "cup" in the case...

    Taterhead replied to a thread Ruger LCR in Cast Boolits
    I have an LCR in 38+p. Neat little gun. Very good gun for its price point. It has a better trigger than I expected. With bunny fluff loads of an RCBS 150 SWC, my wife will shoot cylinder after cylinder, and it is enjoyable. I agree with Beef that...

    Loaded a stash of the Lee clone of the H&G 68 over 452AA. 45 Auto. Also seated gas checks on some LBT 10mm 200 WFN 200 gr boolits. Seated with an NOE sizer. Next up is some paint from Smoke4320, and a healthy charge of Accurate no. 9.
