    The only problems I can see, is there is no heating pad for the backrest on the work/reloading bench chair. And if that's your definition of a "cluttered" room, then you, Sir have a severe case of ocd.

    Well, no Cowboy Action loads because they haven't used rifle cartridge rifles for main match in almost 35yrs. But there are some loads in the old HODGDON Cowboy Reloading Handout. If you PM me your mailing address I'll be glad to mail you a copy....

    There were molds made to take a zinc washer that was put into the mold before filling with alloy. My DAD & his buddies tried them. Slow casting and accuracy disappointing.

    Dipper casting with a one or two cavity mold is a great way to learn. Just be sure use a GOOD dipper like LYMAN'S. And please don't buy the tiny Lee "pot". Four pounds is barely enough to get your mold up to casting temp, even if you preheated...

    No they sure don't make them like they used too. I saw one at the True Value. I could lift it off the ground with two fingers of my bad hand. The one I bought when they came out in 1976 is built like a tank and still tough enough for an...

    Walks replied to a thread Where to reload? in Our Town
    Would you really want to cast & load right out in front of a storage locker. Who knows what type of people would walk by, watch what you're doing. Maybe call the Cops or wonder how to break into your locker.

    I started my .25-06 Experience with one box of Factory ammo. By the time I bought Rifle, Scope/mounts & dies. I had enough for one box of ammo. I was lucky that I'd been hoarding 2lbs of SIERRA 117gr SPBT rejects for about a year. Luckily I...
