    I just went and looked around & it seems that OHAUS has not made this type scale in maybe 2 years.. It could be that they do not carry parts for these scales anymore. I bring a link for you to go read if you like & there you may get more info....

    I have one more suggestion that came into my head just now. Do you have a "SPAM" folder where emails go when they are just advertisers trying to sell something to you? Perhaps a check in that email folder you might find that they tried to...

    John, Yes I am aware of the different cases by mnfr that have differences, and I myself try to keep cases separated by headstamp for similar purposes like what you mentioned. I was thinking you meant unsized "lead "boolits", so that if you...

    Russman, One more thing came to mind after I last posted that I thought I would remind you about... The 9mm cases are tapered. When you go to put a "boolit" into the case, unlike jacketed bullets, the case can size down the boolit and even...

    One might wonder, or even ask... Why does SAAMI put a minimum length on straight wall rimmed cartridges like the 38 Sp. at all, if it doesn't matter? Isn't there a good reason for it? Just a thought... or, two... ;)

    Interesting... I do not see where the guy mentioned OAL changes due to boolit weight, etc.. I did see where he said just the opposite, and I quote: I personally think that is bogus & bad advice... Even in the pic he used of the...
