    That poor man, my PRAYERS go out to Him. I had a hunting Buddy years back that had the same injury, His 20ga Win model 12 blew up in the same place. One of the other Dove Hunters was using a 28ga SxS. That shell would slide into the chamber and...

    I am very sorry for your loss. My Heart goes out to you. I'm watching the news as I'm "trapped" in the house because of COPD & severe sinusitis. Saturday the sky was yellow/gray from the smoke caused by the Woolsey fire. So many of those folks...

    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...

    Taz, You obviously didn't read the first line of my post. "Close the mold gently, hold handles tightly." Been doing that way with LEE molds for 30yrs. Still using those same 3 LEE 2cav molds, they still produce beautiful bullets. I know...

    Close the mold gently, hold closed tightly. You might consider giving the mold cavities & faces with a good scrub with toothpaste and regular toothbrush. Lube with a mold lube from N.O.E. or I think MIDWAY sells it also. The guys here can tell...

    I have one of the old RCBS Trimmers, that uses 4 different stepped collects, 40+yrs and it's still doing It's job very WELL. I've found that maintaining the same lots of brass leads to consistent case length. If you trim 4 or 5 different brands of...
