    I agree with the platform position for sure! I always liked the platform, but hated the caliber. Once I got some extra money and the AR-10’s dropped to a realistic price, I bought one!

    Just finished up digging a Gulf war get out of a whiskey bottle and he was just on a carrier, so no, I don’t think it was a joke. A week before Christmas last year, a friend of mine blew his brains out. He was a meteorologist and they sent him to a...

    Is the shell holder worn out? Are you sure you’re completely going the full stroke? Does your seating die operate on spring tension? Just saw a thread about that the other day, less neck tension the lower it seated, the more neck tension the higher...

    You wouldn’t need a .40 cylinder. When the .40 first came out the only gun on the market that could shoot it was the S&W 610 revolver. It shot .40’s just fine with the 10mm cylinder.

    Because unlike the neutered rounds most sell nowdays, the 10mm is a powerful round! Look up some of Buffalo bores loads for a good reference.

    Before buying a gun try adding some styrofoam to your mix, it really makes a big difference in coverage.

    So it’s sounding like 250-500yds is about it with cast. I’m using the Lee 309-180 R mold and powder coating them. I figured 200yds would probably be about it without a lot of adjusting. The scope would be for j-words, right now I’m just duplicating...

    There really isn’t a comparison between the Lee and Dillon. I have both so I can qualify why I say! You want to work up a batch of 20rds to test? Don’t waste your time on the Dillon, by the time you get it adjusted and working right, you’d have 100...
