    I wrote "away is down" on my bench under the press. Also had a 10%+ failure rate when priming, but over time it has declined to almost zero, either I learned not to jerk things around too much or the press needed to break in. Best way to change...

    Thanks to @ZmanWakeForrest and to @BrassMagnet for their combined effort on the shell holder PIF. I'm new to reloading and brand new to casting, so not a lot of spare stuff, but I am offering up: 1. a like new Lee FCD for 45-70, works fine I...

    Boaz, I avoided posting earlier because you don't know me and I correctly assumed that your friends here would lift you up. What they are saying is correct, and you know it. Your daughter is in what my wife and I call the "**** in the house" stage,...

    Well, if this gets to the end and there happens to be a Lee 2, 11, and/or 15 still without a home I'd be glad to put them to productive use. Obviously prefer to let anyone else that can use them take a shot at them first before I come back for a...

    I don't have any reason to question your results, but you've reached an incorrect conclusion, it does oxidize, and pretty quickly at that.

    To be clear, you had 15 squibs out of 20 rounds? The primers ignited but the powder failed? Have I got that right? Sounds like contaminated powder. Maybe cases not dry after tumbling? Suppose could be plugged flash holes from dry media. I'd...

    I'm easily confused, but I think I need to be in drawing # 2 since they are in the ones you added. If I got it wrong maybe it isn't safe for me to be reloading! Lee: #1 38/357 #3 30-30 #4 223/380 #8 45-70 #9 41 mag Now to go puzzle out...

    That's what he meant. You can imagine that if the stop is a bit too narrow that the extractor will tend to rotate, this is extractor clocking.

    I bought a case on sale, really just like the cans so now I refill them with non-ethanol gas with stabil added. I only use maybe 5gal a year.

    I think you'll need to test in your gun, sorry I can't give you an answer.

    Wife was up to 6 or 8 a day for back/hip pain, but has since reduced to 0 most days due to alternative treatment. She hasn't mentioned any withdrawal symptoms after a year of use. FWIW, one of the generic versions works well for her, while...

    Do not judge them, they are in a different place than you or I. Rejoice in the knowledge that the vile comments by some will cause other readers to question whom they've been listening too online. Having said that, you might ask how many of them...

    Probably not, but I keep them separate so I know what's what. If it's hornady I save it for reloading those jelly tips and if it's anything else I keep it at full length for cast. Just dislike the idea of cutting good brass to the "wrong" length to...
