    The way folks treat their brass since the coming of Progressive Reloading presses has drastically altered reloading. I can't even use the term HandLoading. Ammo is shot up as fast possible, and loaded just as fast. In the three most common...

    Could it be for that .45COLT ammo that was loaded for the COLT 1909. I seem to remember reading something about the rims being made wider because the standard cartridge rims would slip off the extractor, jamming up the revolver.

    I've never "forgotten" I owned a gun. But I've lost a few that I loaned to friends that died, and my plea's to have them returned were rebuffed by family members. The Police consider it a family matter, or in the case of a different City, a...

    I keep all my brass separate. When I pick it up at the range it goes right back in it's own box. I've picked up so much brass from .32ACP to .50AE since I was 3 or 4yrs old, that I can tell what a cartridge is by blind feel. I've still got some...

    I used to load a HORNADY HBWC. Gave me pretty decent accuracy at 50ft. Never tried a cast bullet. Didn't have anything that would drop at .360 or larger.

    Shot thousands of rounds of 7TCU and 30 WCF through 10" barrels. The only thing I didn't like about the 10's was I couldn't shoot them "dead frog" like I could the 14'ers.

    I use a lot of WC870 in anything .308 or larger and find it very accurate. Have read many times that magnum primers will help. Duplexing a couple of grains of fast flake powder down next to the primer will help cure unburned kernels if you want to...

    I got a Taurus model 94 in the early 90's. It was part of a trade. A 9shot version of a S&W 63. It had the roughest chambers of any gun I've owned or even fired. I did everything I could to clean & polish the chambers. To no avail, turned it over to...
