    Absolutely. We went to a Meet and Greet shoot with some members of another forum in July and haven't shot since. Partly because my best shootin partner just had her knee replaced about 10 weeks ago. Recovery is going well and she's mentioned getting...

    I have a Cabela's branded vibrator and it works fine. I would guess the HF model is a rebranded model from one of the true manufacturers. Many items we buy today are rebranded w/o knowing who actually made it. I am pretty sure Cabela's doesn't...

    You bet! That's part of the beauty of this hobby. We can tailor it to fit our own needs. Right now I really need more time to unload some. Haven't been out to shoot since the beginning of July!

    tazman, thanks for the discussion, I understand everything you've explained. Don't follow that line of thinking but I understand it. I use a wide assortment of different head stamps but I do sort them just for the consistency or differing wall...

    So how much of a case length difference does one need to see this? Back when I got my 45acp Witness and started loading for it I was having all sorts of problems with my handloads in this gun. I was using the std. Lee Carbide 3 die pistol set...

    tazman I'm now lost and confused. Unless you are adjusting the die each time how does crimping in a separate step prevent over crimping on brass that hasn't all been trimmed? Can honestly say that I have never really noticed shaved lead or plating...

    I now have 4 presses. An RCBS JR3, Lee 3 hole turret, Lee Pro1000 and now a Lee Breech Lock Pro. The 1st press I bought was the Pro1000 and I use it the most with no regrets, for me it was the best decision. Next was the JR3, I came across this...

    Again late to the party. Many swear by WW231 or HP-38 and I do as well in my 9mm's, the 45acp not so much. Tried shooting this in both a 4" XD MOD2 and a Large frame Witness and when firing indoors both the wife and I notice a large amount of...

    Don't have a wet tumble but I hand shake in a plastic jar with hot water, soap, Lemishine for about .5hr to 1hr while I cruise the forums or watch TV. Rinse with hot water, towel dry then place in old toaster oven for 30min at 200*, leave them in...

    The 3/4" top is hanging freely over the cabinet and sticking out unsupported. I did add a pcs. of 3/4" board that is 8" wide and 16" long and bolted the press thru both pcs.. I haven't glued these together yet but this has stiffened this up a good...
