    ive done a ton of them and can take one from hanging skin on to in the freezer in 2 hours. Lots of it is just after years you find short cuts and breaking them down into muscles gets much easier. that two hours doesn't account for grinding burger or...

    While I'm not sure about "best," there is some merit to this statement. As a target shooter, I use lots of 38 Special ammo loaded with small charges of Bullseye. I'm a very careful loader, but stuff happens. A double charge might be noticed when...

    truthfully 900 a piece would be a fair offer. I just never saw the hoopla around the pre 64 70s. To me there kind of blocky and homely like the first gen ruger 77s but even worse. Want a nice 70 take that 900 bucks and buy yourself a brand new...

    A friend has asked me to find him another inexpensive single stage press. I know it's a long shot, but I decided to post here. Thanks. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    The STP was properly applied to all of the outside, and to the inside of the neck of the case.

    STP is not to be trusted as a case lube. It sure looks like it would work well, but I had a 308 case stick in the sizing die and ruined the die getting it out. I don't know why, but I won't use STP for a sizing lube again.

    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread New 6.8 round. in Military Rifles
    why would the military be interested in a barrel burner that ran those kinds of pressures. Seems not only barrel life but the pounding a light weight gun would take at that level would make them short lived. Don't you find it ironic that we seem to...

    The neck formed by running a 303 Brit case into a 35 Rem full-length sizing die is actually too long to be contained in the die. It will hit the top and crumple. When I do this I have to cut the Brit case shorter before reforming. Those are long...

    yup most test there guns at twice operating pressures. Kind of the industry standard. Do people overload guns and get hurt? Sure they do but some also drive there camaro a 150mph down a 2 lane road. You cant cure stupid. Even 38s that aren't rated...

    I can't even guess how many thousands of cases can be lubed and sized using a tube of Lee case lube, $5. Add to that, there is no need to remove the lube afterwards. P.s. My home is located on Ark Road.

    A 5 gal. bucket might work, but I have another idea, but similar technique. I wonder about a large pan...like a panning for gold pan, but maybe 30" or so in diameter...but no water. The theory being somewhat like Winger Ed. suggests. I would...

    The Brownells screwdriver bits are not as good as Grace. The Grace P4 & P5 are much less likely to bugger up your S&W side plate screws. They are wooden handled screwdrivers, not bits. I highly recommend them. Brownells bits tend to cam up out...
