    What you’re describing seems impossible, but I may be either incorrect or misunderstanding what you’re saying. I have an academic interest in your concept, but even if it works I’m not a buyer for it.

    I wonder if you have a tight spot in the barrel. Do you use a Lee factory crimp die?

    I use the Lyman separator, in fact just started using it last week. Before that I just set the FART in a bucket and shook it, then when I dumped the brass on a towel to dry I used a magnet to get all the spare kinda sucked. Now I dump...

    I don’t believe that many people are buying suppressors in order to cycle their semiauto rifles with subsonic loads, and I wouldn’t buy an accessory to enable this because I can generally get the performance I want through adjustments. You mention...

    Pin tumble with wash n wax plus Lemishine. Lyman separator. Dump in a bucket with a towel on the bottom. Bounce for a few steps. Pour out on a towel on the garage floor and push them around until spread out a bit. Point a fan in their general...

    That’s 20% smaller than #12, might make for good snake shot. I’ll try a box, PM coming.

    Won’t the fumes attack some plastics, including trash bags? I’d probably use a metal gas can, like a powder can, surely they are designed to split open at moderate pressure. Oh, and nice score!

    I have a SDB, have used it for many pistol calibers, but it is going to be dedicated to 38 special and 357 magnum shortly. Just got the Hornady LNL with case and bullet feeders in used condition, working on refurbishing and have high hopes for it...

    Yes, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t possible that the USPS would have limited flat rate service to the continental US. It was just a question, I wasn’t trying to take away HI’s statehood, I was offering to help you out if you were in a...

    Try it, but be careful to know your limits. There is an infinite amount of need and it is rewarding but emotionally grueling work. Dear friend of mine lost her younger brother a couple years ago and an employee of mine lost a husband and a son,...

    I can’t look right now, but are the OAL’s shorter for the JHP? Given the same bullet weight that means more cartridge space consumed by the bullet, less room for powder expansion and therefore higher pressure. Just a guess.

    In that case, @abunaitoo if you’re hard up for 9mm brass please pm your address. If you’re just exercising curiosity then I wish you the best of luck in your research.

    Just look up the legal definition of a suppressor/silencer, I think you’ll find that having baffles is not the defining criteria. The definition is poorly written, but it is what it is. When in doubt it’s free to ask ATF for their opinion.

    Well Tex, you may well hear back from Bonz (aka Vic, aka Charles) but I doubt itíll be on the forum. He passed in January, I was just letting folks know since I hadnít seen it mentioned by anyone.

    Intentionally bumping an old thread. I haven't seen posted elsewhere on the site that Vic has passed away. His guns were split up as he wished with a few being sold. His reloading, casting and swaging equipment ended up in a big pile in the...
