    I used to do this on 44 Mag...its too heavy of a crimp. I've also switched to using Lee FCD for my various calibers. It does work much better for crimping. You can crimp as hard as you want without leaving the brass sliver that you're seeing. ...

    If you're talking possible decades...I'd tumble them first to remove the contamination. then I'd mix some paraffin/axle grease to make a "cosmoline" consistency to store them in. If its good enough to protect a century old firearm from the...

    It's nothing against you, Lakehouse....but it's getting to a point where, I'll believe it when I see it. I'll be the first to admit I'm a glass half empty guy...so I'm also hoping it isn't a scam against you. Keep us posted. redhawk

    If you're not worried about ruining meat...then use the STs. They will do well. I also have some of the Remington 180gr bronze tips. I had to seat them slightly deeper than the cannelure. The bullets are so long that they wouldn't feed correctly...

    I bought up 1500 of the 180s when Winchester discontinued them. They are (IMHO) one of the best 30-06 bullets for deer size game. Mine will make a caliber size hole going in, and a 4-5" coming out. I still use them as my deer load. They worked...

    I "browned" my barrel when I did my kit back in the 90s. I believe it was Birchwood Casey "Plumb" that I used. Its a nice medium brown color. redhawk

    Its the cold water cooldown that keeps the green away from the yoke. Those egg cookers you're referring to could be in the "As Seen on TV" section at walmart. I remember those commercials for them a few years ago. redhawk

    I just boil mine for 20 minutes...then run under cold water to cool. (about 3 minutes, that's the secret) Once cooled I crack and roll the egg on the counter top breaking then entire shell. Then when you break through the shell membrane they peel...

    I load the LEE 102gr for my .380 and it also works for light loads in my 9mm. I wouldn't go any heavier in the 380 for sure. Being lead it doesn't seat too deep but 15% heavier...that would likely seat too deep and cause over-pressure or require...
