    Guys, it is the easiest die there is to use, quit trying to make it hard. Tankgunner59 is correct, but I'll post the instructions straight out of the Instructions sent with every Lee neck sizing die. Adjustment for Lee presses (this is completely...

    I use lightened springs. Small rifle primers are not much different, if at all from small pistol magnums. Most standard small pistol primers are flat, but not extruded at 45k psi full power loads. I have had problems with Federal small pistol, they...

    NOT TRUE. It is possible to wrongly adjust it, but read the instructions. You should not be camming over a press, meaning the handle should not be bottoming out. I trusted the OP knew this, but if this many people are confused, perhaps not. With the...

    Short term, I'd like a TC Renegade, left hand percussion. Besides that, I'd love to find a flintlock SXS shotgun, preferably 10 or 11 gauge, although anything 16-8 bore is fine by me.

    That is not true, unless you have a press that doesn't cam over. Even still, the Lee dies cannot be adjusted. It either works, or it doesn't. The Mandrel determines the ID of the case neck, not the collet. The Lee collet neck sizing die is the best...

    Hoppes #9, wet patch, let it soak. Then a copper bore brush wrapped in copper chore boy. You can get the worst of the worst leading out this way.

    All of those numbers are for seating in the crimp groove. 1.545" OAL.

    I have talked to the gun shop, they are more than happy to hold the gun for me. I did try to source the gun locally, but it is a Lew Horton exclusive, and has not been in stock for a long time now. Thankfully I am in a position that I can dish out...

    A handgun is one thing. When it comes to a money order, from my perspective you are paying for NOTHING with a tracked package. Even with proof the money order was lost somewhere, there is nothing that can be done. It's 60 days until they will look...

    Yep, nothing to do but send the money again. There is a lesson to be learned here, but I'm not sure what it is yet. Bank money orders are worse, they are a 90 day wait! Again, tracking has no bearing on this, unless you have the check in hand,...

    Take the mandrel out and measure it. You see a number of people complain about light neck tension with jacketed bullets using this die, but never with cast. They do sell a .002" undersized mandrel, but it should not be needed for cast. There is no...

    At the very least he should put the book online. I like the old school mentality, but if you can't physically put a book in a box, it's time to sell electronic copies.

    Isn't that a trip? You call USPS, go through their answering machine until you get on hold, not an easy task. "approximate hold time... more than one hour". How many people could be calling them in a day?

    Until today, I had no idea. I had always heard USPS money order is one of the safest methods. Sure, I'll get my money back eventually, but that is a weeks pay sitting out there for months, for no reason. Safer for the post office is more like it....

    That's the thing, you can't cancel it. There is nothing that can be done for a full 60 days, and then it's a mystery how much longer after that where I actually get money back. Tracking is completely irrelevant. Even in a priority mail envelope,...

    I'm sure you just canceled your check, or whatever payment you had used. It's just sad that you can't do anything at all for a USPS money order. It has a serial number on it. There is not one reason at all that it can not be canceled, and a new one...

    I can completely understand the issue with a cartridge. I have shot Swiss and Goex in multiple handguns, and don't see nearly that much difference though. Realize I'm shooting them in calibers like 357 mag, 41 mag, and 44 mag. Thanks for that...

    Still, if it gets lost they make you wait. It wasn't until now that I realized you couldn't cancel a USPS money order. Can you cancel a bank money order, or does it vary from bank to bank? How about a personal check? Surely in this modern day there...

    I have heard of Schutzen. A quick search shows why, Swiss powder is made by Schutzen. Swiss must be to Wano, what Old Ensford is to Goex standard.

    I will definitely be sending them in a traceable package from now on. 30 days when you can prove it's lost? That's bogus. Why can't they cancel the dang thing and send another? I'm willing to pay the $1 it cost in paper and ink to print a new one....

    I'm going to guess you don't live in USA, I've never even heard of Wano. I've got access to Swiss and Goex. It might have a big effect on long range rifle accuracy, but for me I would not say Swiss has anything over Goex. I swab every shot with any...

    I sent a USPS money order to a gun shop on 1/2/19, and as of today it has not been received. I sent it in a stamped envelope, which should have been a 2 day trip, 4 days tops. At this point it is safe to say it was either stolen or lost by the USPS....

    Not particularly related, but something I've been meaning to ask. In relation to so called fast blackpowder, why can't you use more of the slower stuff. I'll pull an example from thin air. If 110 grains of Swiss produces 20k psi and 1900 fps, while...

    I've tried various NOE expander plugs with .314" bullets. The .313" plug is too big, .312" feels on the light side for neck tension when seating bullets, although I tried shooting them with no bullets pulling at all. I like the .315"x.311", and it...
