    May want to review rules, unless they've changed, the max is ten items. Used to be, more than ten possible sales post was deleted. But I've been wrong before.

    Had the same problem with a Lee 8mm sizer die while reforming 06 to 8mm. Never could get it to stop. Use an RCBS die now for forming,

    First step was seat boolits deeper, still not chambering. Pulled decapping stem from f/l sizer. Case in until resistance than two bumps on the handle to get the neck started in. Back out and chamber perfectly. Apparently this rifle has a very...

    Rounds didn't chamber, rattled in just like doubles do. ( What a lovely sound!). Tried closing the breech. Almost, but not just completely closed. When I loaded them, I left them a little long, my boolit is a blunter profile and the full sized...

    Got 8 400/360's loaded up this afternoon, hope to try them tomorrow. They're for a British double that is absolutely stunning. Used 5744 under the NOE boolit I use in the 9.3x74R.

    Just the 257, I don't need two 451 dies. PM on the way. Now I need to dig through the stash for an appropriate PIF. That's the biggest challenge, too much stuff to pick from, and picking out something that someone would want or need.

    15meter replied to a thread Ruger Chambers in Rimfire Area
    I've got an older MK II, never had a problem with extraction. I put in a Volquartsen extractor just because I had the gun apart for some other upgades. I shoot it in a local fun shoot, two shooters have 13 falling plates to knock down, you...

    Not sure that is the answer, my fire forming load was unique followed with a toilet paper wad that was followed with screenings from under a grain dryer(did I mention I'm frooogal?). That was topped with another TP wad. I've had the same uneven...

    Wasn't aware this had been done, it would be interesting to see photos of one. The magazine would have to be slanted so the last cartridge inserted into the magazine would have it's rim in front of the prior one. Mauser did it with their sland...

    Hold the rifle vertically, when I did 30-30 to 38-55 the ones fired horizontally as opposed to vertically did not blow out completely. No idea why, just better straight up. One of the great mysteries of life, at least to me. Someone else can...

    Problem with asking for a hard number is the variable cost of components. I paid less than 2-1/2 cents per primer less than a year ago, on gun broker they are going for 15 cents or more each today. Most locations are reporting you can't buy them...

    My cost for 45 ACP is less than 4 cents each, including all the equipment. I was lucky enough to stock up on components through my gun club. We bought in bulk. Primers less than 2-1/2 cents each. Powder, 12 to 19 dollars a pound depending on...

    It's a double, haven't heard if the buddy and the seller came to a meeting of the minds or not, already load cast in the 9.3x74r so I already have loads for that. Hopefully I'll get as lucky with this as the 8x50r I fooled with several years ago....

    This is an open ended poll, a year from now if you go on an archeological dig you'll find it and can add to what you have here now, I've updated mine occasionally as I've taken on a new project.

    Mine is for the 416 Rigby, I sent a Speer 350 Grn. Hot-Cor #2477 for him to duplicate as close as possible. I was having problems with feeding a boolit from a different mold. Other rifles may have fed it but a custom single square bridge Mauser...

    The single #3 that I shot was a buddies in 45-70, I think he loaded it with a measuring CUP he swiped from the kitchen, not a powder scoop. I load and shoot a fair number of the old English double rifle cartridges, 400/350, 450/400, 450 N.E.,...
