    Have a good neighbor who cuts my grass for me in the summer. Won't take anything for it except for an occasional case of beer. I knew he had a S&W 500 magnum so one visit to our local gun shop netted me two boxes for the 500. He does not reload and...

    How about the 9.3x57??. Make brass form 8mm cases. Open the necks to 375 then slowely resize in a 9.3x57 die but leave a slight shoulder so when you close the bolt you get a slight crush fit. Headspace wasn't all that great. 286 grain round nosed...

    303Guy, many years ago I bought a #5 jungle carbine. Most poorly fitted firearm I've ever worked with. You could grab the buttstock and actually twist it even after the stock bolt was checked for tightness. Forestock was just as bad. Groups were...

    Just plain old lead. No other additives like tin or antimony needed. Hit up your local scrap yard and see what they have. Lead roofing, will have some tin where they soldered the sheets together but for all purposes its pure lead. Lead cable...

    Bad thing I have found is where the case wall meets the solid part of the 303 case. Supposed to be .455 but all U.S. made cases seem to suffer from this defect. Privi, including the old Hanson Cartridge company brass does not show the case bulges....

    Limit your ross to one brand of cases. Open up the necks with an 8mm a lyman M die. Resize your cases so that they give a crush fit in your rifles chamber. Try a few first before locking down the die ring. Sort of a cut and try approach to your...

    Years back always used Remington primers. Bought some rem-umc 9mm ammo to shoot in my Beretta 92fs. Happened to pick up an empty and had a neat little hole in it. In fact just about every one had a hole. Cost me a new firing pin and spring. Been...

    Have Marlins in 357 mag and 44 mag, also winnies in the usual rifle calibers. Even with warm not hot loads in the 44 mag my fired cases do not show that rather large bulge in the case. I suspect that your chamber is overly large and your loaded...

    I wish Marlin would come out with a super 32-20. Heavy octagon barrel, pistol grip stock,full length mag tube and a faster twist than the 1x20 they used to use. And leave off the safety.And have weaver come out with a base that allows more...
