    If you mean the seating die, I don't know that they ever had a crimp feature. That's why I like them so much. They still do have a collet crimp die with any rifle die set though. If yours is missing, you should call Lee. A quick and dirty solution...

    Cold water. You would have to splash a ton on you to get serious burns. As long as you wear safety glasses, 99% of it should be just minor burns. The worst I've got is accidentally touching a hot mold with a bare hand. You will know if you need to...

    You could take 100 top level shooters, half who "break in" their barrels, half who don't. You would end up with 100 top level shooters with no correlation to some mystical cleaning break in. If your barrel is rough, a bore brush won't do anything....

    Wow, that's nothing to feel bad about. It's been 10 years since the last, but I just lost a deer this year under the same conditions. The shot was good, but I didn't even get a chance to find blood. The ground was already frozen at the time, but no...

    Shot doesn't go as far as you think it would. Most only goes just over 200 yards.

    megasupermagnum replied to a thread Buckhunter? in Muzzleloading.
    Traditions made both a buckhunter and a buckstalker. I've never seen either in 12 gauge. There are only three relatively recent 12 gauge muzzleloaders I know of that might be close. The Knight TK2000, The TC new Englander, and the White Tominator....

    Well... the case forming isn't as daunting now that everything is set up. I successfully fired a dozen cases today, and they fire formed nicely. The load was 38.5 grains RX15 and a 180 grain bullet (Saeco 315 clone). It shot good too. The...

    Short answer, not really. Lets pretend you have a shotgun shell loader, or got one for free, all of your hulls are free, and your time is worth $0. If you load 1 ounce loads, you need to pay $40 or less per bag of shot, just to break even. If you...

    I shot that load. I even took two deer with them. The LBC sabot slug is so non-aerodynamic that any benefit is gone by 100 yards. They did shoot well though, even from a smooth bore. A better start might be the slug from Slugs R Us. If you don't...

    I never understood the coin drill. Every single handgun I own has a hammer strong enough to knock the coin off, even if the gun is set firmly on a rest. Is this just some impossible drill guys make beginners do to make them feel bad?

    The tight throats are not necessarily bad. If you get a .312" or smaller groove barrel, and a .312" or slightly larger throats you might have it made. As I said in some earlier post somewhere, one problem many, if not all of us have had is splitting...

    Mechanically, I see no reason a revolver couldn't produce 2 MOA accuracy. Some, like the 30-30 Magnum Research BFR can do that or even a little better with a scope. Based on what a bullseye shooter can do, I would think most production guns are more...

    Snow is the stuff that eats brass. If you want semi auto brass around here, show up around April 10th, and there will be hundreds, if not thousands of cases on the 25 yard line freshly cleaned.

    I don't see where it says you can't use the press for bottle neck cartridges, or as a single stage reloading press. The only thing I see is on page 3, for the new X shell holders, they say it's not recommended to use these for bottleneck cartridges,...

    I've been to Florida. I don't think there is anything you can do that would ever keep a bullet from passing clean through your deer. I personally find pressure to be more of a limiting factor than velocity. That said I run 20:1 alloy in 327 federal...
