    1browski, try lowering the decapping stem slightly. When my progressive press does that it's usually a sign the decapping stem has slid up inside the die a bit.

    Never had as many issues with my 23 year old projector press since I got it. About 9 years ago I had to adjust the pawls as it wasn't advancing the shell plate far enough, but that was after loading 50-70K rounds. My main stoppage on that press is...

    Yes it is. I've used 30-06, 270, 308, a couple of the mausers, and others. Raptor brass run through a 444 die is the easiest but then you're throwing a lot of money at it as raptor brass isn't cheap. I'd love to do as long of a version that would...

    We have a X720 that is now 5-6 years old that replaced a 30 year old IHC 682 that was on its 2nd rebuilt kt17. The x720 (which is now a x730) has a 27hp Kawasaki fuel injected water cooled engine and works better than any other lawn/garden tractor...

    I think they just go bad after x many years. Had some go bad, there was a recall and I got them replaced. Told me the same "got a a bad batch of stuff" 3-4 year later one of them was stuck to the carpet again. Just went back to a wood stock with...

    We have ducks as mainly pets and get 3-5 eggs a day. We just do the water test on them when finding eggs they've hidden. Otherwise they're less than a day old.

    There are some good .357"/.358" bottle neck wildcats for the ar15. Some areas do not allow bottle neck cases such as the Limited Firearms zone in southern Michigan where I live. For me, a 357AR or 357Maximum-rimless makes sense. They are more...

    Have you tried taking the extractor out and cleaning it and the slide? They can get a buildup of crud under the section from the pivot hole to where they stick out of the breech face that actually keeps them from grabbing the case as much as they...

    If it's a straight wall there is a good chance that a standard die will work depending on the length and taper if any in the case.

    Cerrosafe *depending on the type* initially shrinks to easily be driven out, then grows back to size. If he didn't wait for it to grow back to size then yes that could be it but being a gunsmith he should know that. Measured a well used 29-3 and a...

    Not as hard as you think. For the past two seasons I've hunted with an AR10 in 44x1.8". The only reason it has a 1.8" and not 308 length is because in my DNR zone we're limited to straight walled cases no longer than 1.8". Running the pressure...

    We have hulu and netflix. Our basic cable kept going up and up every year. About the only thing I don't like about them is if a new episode comes out today, we likely don't get it until tomorrow. We mainly use hulu for tv shows and netflix for...

    I have an old Herter's 9 ton press. It's strictly, in my opinion, a handgun bullet press. I've made quite a few dies for it for pistol/revolver bullets. The first out of it's league die I made was for a 45-70 bullet. Well the 20 gauge slug surely...

    Wally on changing your powder charges I can tell you this. First I use Unique. You'll find the nodes of accuracy changing with the charge weight. Say you are in the bad area of a node and the charge is rather light. As you go up in small increments...

    popper I've never been a big fan of the LEE sizers. If I did a push through I usually made them myself with a good taper and lots of polishing. I can tell you with the luber/sizers that the RCBS sizing die with it's annular lube groove inside will...

    Today Bullseye is often an over looked powder. Shame as it's a very good one. It goes a long way too as you don't use much of it.
