    I was thinking it was only a couple weeks ago that I found the 2400 I got, but after looking at the date of the PM I sent to Shiloh, it was 3 weeks(Oct 1) that I bought it. Fits the timeline they told you Grmps. Just a lil bit later though. Glad...

    This is the tool I mentioned in my post if anyone is not aware of them. They are good tools, IMO. The reamers would do the job I bet. They work well with opening primer pockets. IIRC, one fella recently posted about someone using one to open...

    I use the ladder test for load development first, usually when I do not know for sure how a certain powder, or some other component(s) does for a particular firearm. Like what we are doing right now. I am not familiar with using 147gr & 158 gr....
