    Long time ago, me and my helper were running a long run of emt up in a warehouse along a concrete wall. He worked off the lift and I did the bending on the floor and handed the pipe up to him. He was using, I forget the name brand, using a little...

    I read somewhere that firemen would/could not be hurt by exploding ammo, it wouldn't penetrate their fire suits. There is no barrel/chamber to help the cartridge build pressure or direct the boolit.

    You need to seat it where your gun tells you---I know not the answer you want BUT all guns are a little different :) Crimp is important, DON"T crimp any harder than it takes to keep the boolit from moving when you push a loaded boolit against...

    Yeah bullet recovery out here in KaliFornia is paramount...that stuff is getting hard to find. I enrich my COWW blend with tin up to 1.5~2% so I especially want that stuff back. It makes beautiful casts. I think I used 8 bags of this stuff... ...

    Ha! That's the guy who inspired me to do one too...I just sized mine up a wee bit so that hopefully I wouldn't/couldn't miss the thing. Then after getting a quote on the steel (sticker shock) the project sat on the back burner for several years. ...

    they went forth for His name’s sake… 3 JOHN 7 Our Lord told us how our love for Him is to exhibit itself when He asked, “Do you love Me?” (John 21:17). And then He said, “Feed My sheep.” In effect, He said, “Identify yourself with My interests in...

    If ya do not get someone to help ya with making them. I have likely got some of the 38-357(.135) and the 44-.44M(.135) extras. If not, I can likely get some from the local Ace Hardware store. I have gone in there in the past with a micrometer...

    Had mine for a couple years & it works, "OK", I guess. I don't remember the exact cost, but I want to say it was around 4-45 frogskins then. Not too bad I reckon.

    My bad for the misunderstanding......As Outpost75 has developed an affinity for RL7 loads I preferred 44 magnum rifle loads using PB'd bullets using H4227. I simply haven't tried RL7 loads yet. Been some time since I loaded for a 44 Magnum rifle...

    Both guns are very comparable. I would suggest searching for the lightest accurate load for the 44 mag and keep it if you like the gun.

    Let's nnot rule out the 4064 until you try it. It's going to be like a very, very slow lot of IMR4895 is all. Just because I never used it before doesn't mean it won't work just fine.
