    I want a 10.5 inch 450 pistol. Ive got a 50 beo 16 inch and its been a darned good gun but its on the heavy side. Problem is everyone seems to be pretty proud of there 450 and 50 beo pistol uppers. Easy to find a 556 or 9mm pistol upper for around...

    there are no higher ups. the girl answering the phone is the wife of he owner of the business. they were willing to replace the bolt and charging handle if I sent them in. Not worth the price of shipping and a 10 mile trip to the post office. I just...

    all ive used is smokes powders. Never seen a reason to try something else. Ive used black and brown. both work fine. Brown seems to give a bit more consistent coverage.

    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread PSA 9mm AR in Factory Rifles
    I made a big mistake once. I had a good ak that would run anything. Even had 5 case of wolf steal cased ammo for a stash for it. Thought id upgrade and buy myself an ar15 in 762x39 so traded it off on one. It was a bushmaster factory gun. Biggest...

    I really don't have a need for steel cased 9mm ammo. Reason I have my two 9mm ARs is because I can load cast bullets in them for about the price of 22 shells. I can shoot 6 9mms loaded like that for the price of one handloaded 5.56 shell.

    Ive put maybe 300 rounds through it yesterday and today. Only problem ive seen is feeding the first round out of those cheap aftermarket 32 round mags when I stick a full 32 in them. Load them with 30 and the gun runs like a clock. One thing I would...

    Lee, Dillon, RCBS, and Hornady have all been excellent. My only bad experience was with Lyman. I needed a new pan. They wouldn't sell me one. They wanted me to send my scale in, and pay for the pan, AND for them to calibrate it. I ended up, ordering...

    From your description, I'd say the "knock-out punch" (part #J) is upside down. The head of the knock-out punch should contact the base of the die which will NOT allow the punch (part#I) to be lifted above the top of the die...actually it will be...
