    I've had a Ruger SSM for 30+yrs, shot everything in it from .32S&W up to .32H&R Mag loaded beyond book. Even shove a couple of .32ACP's into see if they really do work. I'd buy one of the 7 1/2" Ruger's in .327Mag if it wsn't a 7 shooter. Like...

    I use 24" stools. My presses are mounted right on top of the bench. Both are "D" frame with handles offset to the right. I sit just to the left of the handle. My bench height was built to accommodate the 24" stools for my seated height. Can't...

    I had both my Colt .44Spl's Reamed out to I think 14degrees ?. Sorry it was 30+yrs ago. It stopped my leading problems. Same Gunsmith did my S&W 624 at the same time. Matching bullet diameter to chamber throats and bore diameters really helps....

    Well done sir! I guess I'm just all kinds of eat up. I'd much rather have an old one or an oddball than any plastic stocked cookie cutter rifle.

    I size clean cast bullets for pan or Tumble Lubing, by tumble lubing them in Dawn dish soap. Size then rinse in hot water in a strainer, dry in sun. Then lube by TL or Pan Lube. Depending on need. And if you haunt fleabay you can find Lyman Lube...

    I have 2 50 gallon sterilized water drums. Bought them June 1999. Be prepared for everything to go to hell Jan 1st, 2000. Poured in 1 gallon of bleach in each one and filled with filtered tap water. Emptied them a year later. Bit of chlorine tap,...

    My Uberti '73 (1987) will not catch the rim to extract the cases. Tried .44 Spl too. The .45 colt case won't fit in any of My 4 .44WCF Rifles or one Revolver. Sized them in My old Lyman dies from the early 1960's. Rem cases sized in that old size...

    I tried Glucosamine for a while several years ago. It was expen$ive, and didn't seem to help much. Perhaps I didn't give it enough chance. Now, I have "feeble knees", and perhaps will try a month or three to see if it does help. Thanx for the tip....

    I used to counteract moisture 2 ways, first I start with a cold pot filled with cold scrape. I lay the scrap spread out on a tarp in the sun. Cover with 2nd tarp at night. That also allows you to check for weird stuff to reject before it goes into...

    The Lee 44-240-2R is a Round Nose. It is "sharp" enough to rest on the primer of the one ahead of it in the magazine tube. Not a good idea. Primer detonation in the mag tube is NO FUN. If you want a good 240gr. N.O.E. Makes a FANTASTIC BULLET the;...

    Walks replied to a thread COL Newbie question? in Cast Boolits
    Lots of ways. 1) Adjust seating die/stem to just touch a factory load. Size & expand a dummy case, no powder/primer. Seat one of your cast bullets, no crimp yet. Drop it into the chamber of the bbl of your disassembled pistol. If it plunks, then...
