    Just purchased a AR7 .22 survival rifle made by Henry Arms. Before that was a S&W 10-5.

    I shot my CVA mountain rifle in club matches in the late 1970,s. I always placed in the top 5 or better. I shot 50 grains 3fffg. At 50 yard 2inch groups off hand were common. I still have that rifle. Fly

    Walks replied to a thread Lee Mould Handles in Casting Equipment
    RCBS has made the same handles since they bought out Lachmiller/Ohaus. Lyman just changed over to the Saeco type. And as far as I know Lee handles fit all Lyman 2cav and RCBS. N.O.E., MP and Accurate too. So what is your question ?

    I hear about .44-40 cases getting crushed all the time. The other Cowboy Shooters at My old club complained about it all the time. I consider myself Very Very Fortunate to have a set of early Lyman All-American dies from the 1960's. The sizer...

    I too have a Nickel 27-2, it's a 5 inch. Bought it some 30yrs ago, a former Florida Highway Patrol Revolver. It came with a set of Pachmayr Grips though. It came with an action smooth as glass, 3lbs on single action, 11lbs on double action. I've...

    My Condolences on your loss. If you have a copy of the Reloading Die set instructions, read them carefully. That may help solve your problem. They may also be found on Lee's Website. I would concentrate on seating the New bullet to the...

    When I seat the last bullet in a batch, I empty the PM. Forgot to do it once on My first progressive, that TiteGroup is BAD JuJu.

    Chamfer & deburr all cases BEFORE loading. That way there are no sharp edges to catch on Anything. Bullet depth looks good. Taper Crimp .472 is my way too. Do a "plunk test" on at least the first 5 out of each batch, I load in Batches of...

    JimKirk, that's a great idea. Back when I used one, it was simply a matter of a "light touch". Got to where I could trim to a repeatable one thousands off. For the last 32+ years it's been a Lyman electric or a Forster. Old RCBS is still...
