    Remember that Guanantees from both only cover two years because of the electronics. I have the old pots from both. But when one does die, I will buy a new RCBS pot. Even though the display is on the side. RCBS still has the BEST CUSTOMER...

    Depends on how sharp the nose is ? I know of two (personally) blown up lever guns that had detonations in the mag tubes from round nose bullets. Back in the day (20yrs ago+) When I had time to cast bullets for my 2Kids Cowboy guns, I used 2...

    Looks like you applied TOO much crimp. Is your case way too long. What Mold does that bullet drop from ? Doesn't quite look like a #452374. Is it from a Lee mold? Almost looks like it was sized from the bottom in a Lube-Sizer, from a too big...
