    I prefer the term classic, I have a John Deere 60 that I keep my 92 year old mother's driveway clear of snow in the winter that was built the year I was born. Other people have referred to it as an antique. By extension then I must be and antique....

    As brakes become more common, people are beginning to understand how annoying they can be. Ten years ago I would have said that he was not aware of how much they disturbed those around him. Today, I suspect he just didn't care. We had one young...

    It exists, apparently not many of them made, the one listed above that I knew about already said he was just thumb pressing bullets into cases to shoot it. I was hoping for a little more info. Looks like this is a fun one to load for if the info is...

    Vote 3, I have used several hand held primers, Lee (2) RCBS, I think two variations over the years, Lee ram prime, priming arm on Lyman and RCBS presses. I got a RCBS bench primer with a bunch of dead guy reloading stuff I bought ~ 10 years ago. I...

    A buddy told me about a 380 2 1/4 Rigby that he found wandering the innerweb, he had never heard of it, nor had I. It is in a Jones underlever single shot type action. Has anyone had any experience with round? From what little I have found on...

    Tried my first foray into Blue Dot territory today, 14 grains behind an RCBS 190 grain GC in 30-06. Shot very well, zero pressure signs. Actually a little on the low side for pressure, just a smudge of smoke on the neck. At the price I paid, I...

    Absolutely fire vertically, I used unique, don't recall the load. Ten sounds right. On top of the powder was a quarter square of toilet paper then the nibs from under a friend's grain drier with another quarter square of TP. Looked like an explosion...

    Got any load you want to share for the 45/70, I occasionally load for 45/70, but much more often for .43 Spanish. Most references for .43 Spanish say 45/70 loads reduced by 10%. Thanks

    Do a search for Ed Harris and The Load for military rifles, I think it may even be a sticky in the military rifle forum, he has every thing from carbine bullet short range plinkers to 200 grain bullets out to 600. You should find a load in there...

    Thanks for all the hits, may try the 8mm load, currently use 2400, don't currently load for any of the magnum pistol loads, I typically run to the mouse fart load end of the spectrum. Was hoping to see some of the stuff I load for regularly, 06, 6.5...

    I've got stacks of loading manuals, not all cast bullet loadings have made it into the load manuals, I don't remember seeing 16 grs. of 2400 for most military rifle cast loads but have seen it here in a number of places and have used it myself...

    I picked up a jug of Blue Dot for less than $5.00 a lb. Now I have to figure out what to do with it. Where do you use Blue Dot other than Magnum shotgun loads and Magnum pistol loads?

    If you are in the southern Michigan/Northwest Ohio/Northeast Indiana look up a company called ALRO, metal and plastic distributor. Customer orders a specific size, they cut it to spec. and if the left over is too small/odd shaped to sell for full...

    I have bought full sized c02 cylinders that have failed hydro, the last one the earliest test date was 1931, cut it into 3 equal pieces. the top and bottom ring like a bell when hit with cast. Depending on what you hit it with they can ring for 7-10...

    Gone thru several versions of RCBS, Lee and Dillon, currently have a 505, have a new in box Hornady that I bought with a bunch of dead guy stuff that is looking for a new home. I always check zero when I start and use commercial j-bullets for check...

    The OP said it was a 8x50r, IIRC the 8x50r is standard 8mm diameter, this bullet may be to large, the 8x56r takes an .329 dia. bullet. Lee makes a mold for the 8x56r, I seat gas checks then double tumble lube with Ben's Liquid Lube. For the...
