    The 600 Jr does a so-so job sizing real brass, low brass shells, but that's it. The new remington STS's might still be brass, but everything else is steel now, and high brass, forget it. I actually went to using the Lee sizer bushing at first,...

    I think a big problem is we forget the cartridge doesn't do anything. It's just a tube to hold a primer, powder and bullet. The bullet is the only thing that matters at the target. Whats better 270 or 30-06? It doesn't matter if both send a 150...

    I agree with the 223, 22-250 or a faster varmint cartridge would have been a much better choice. 243 is always popular in the single shots, but with that, you can still pick up 243 handi rifles for $200-$250 just about anywhere. It seems H&R made...

    I've always said the 600JR is useless until you get a super sizer to go with it. I too got myself a sizemaster, and after using it, I would never recommend a 600JR to a newbie. I never had any problem without it, but that primer feed that comes on a...

    I too shoot left handed, and always prefer something I'm equally proficient at the other side. This is my #1 beef with bolt actions. I never thought much about the lever opening both ways, I always press mine to the right no matter what. It's just...

    I had not ever thought to try that. At one time I had found a set of offset scope rings, and that works out pretty well, but looked goofy.

    I'd be very careful, but the listed maximum of a Knight TK2000 (muzzle loading 12 gauge) is 2.5 ounces at 120 grains blackpowder.

    And what happens when the scope doesn't fit? There are only two slots, no adjustment. It either fits, or it doesn't, the problem was never screws shaking loose. Loctite can fix it if they do. A Leupold 1-4x scope fits with tall rings (you have to...

    Do the new englander's have the counter bored muzzle, or is there rifling all the way to the end?

    Too bad you didn't ask this morning, I could have put it on the scale. It's listed as right at 7 pounds on the website, and I see no reason to doubt that. I'll see what it weighs tonight with a scope.

    Warne low rings will fit, and I've got a hammer extension on now. I used GrovTec GTHM-283; it's listed for Henry big boy, but not the single shot. It does fit perfect on the single shot though. That makes me wonder what else the single shot shares...

    For half the price the Lee comes with a handle, and if it ever does break off, you now have the same or better than the RCBS. Where's the fire? I'm in the majority of users, I don't know how long the Lee ingot mold lasts, I've not managed to break...

    That isn't crimped properly in the groove. Try them at 1.545", and the lip of the case will be narrower than the front driving band.

    I assume you can't crimp at that length, 1.545" is about perfect to crimp in the groove.

    How long is your brass? I always trim to 1.190", and load that bullet to an OAL of 1.545".

    The .35" long nose is too much for the single seven unless seated deep. With the Henry rifles, it's just a tiny bit too long, about .020" too long. You could either trim the brass that little bit, or load in H&R brass, or seat deep. I chose a fourth...

    I use the 100 round MTM boxes, they last decades unless you step on them. The reason I like that bullet so much, is you can use 115 grain data for it. There were also some cast designs like the Lyman 116 grain that you will find data for. There...

    Part 2: I just slugged the bore, and it comes out at .3084". It is a 6 groove, 1:10" twist. Some things I had forgot to mention before... I did not shoot with the iron sights, but they are similar to the other Henry sights. I personally...

    After failing to find a nice used 30 caliber handi-rifle, I decided to try the new Henry in 308 winchester, that I had complained was too much money. My initial impressions are quite good. I still stand by my opinion, that this rifle is too nice, it...

    I wouldn't go so far as to say it is a joke, I've gotten replacements for free before. If it keeps costs down to not have to pay shipping for every $5 broken tool, thats OK by me. Last time I checked, you only have to pay shipping one way, and you...

    Ghosthawk shoots buckshot in his, which is about the same weight. He never says specifically, but he noted 2 grains of Red dot. I would think you could use the 77 grain H&R mag or 327 federal data from Hodgdon.

    Unfortunately, Elmer never designed a 32 caliber bullet. I don't use the shorter cases either. It's nice having the option for factory ammo, but I don't see any reason to reload anything but 327 brass, if all your 32 caliber guns are that chamber....

    I don't doubt it, but they are very rare. The exceptions are the 12,20, and .410 shotguns, as well as 243 winchester rifles. I've seen some 17 hmr rifles decent too. Since 2015, I've got two 12 gauges, both $125. Since that time, I've also been on...

    I looked at the Hatfield at walmart. I won't be owning one. I have no idea what choke it is, it was fixed, but no mention on the barrel. It looked like they just crimped down the end of the barrel and called it good. The frame is about like a barn...

    With those kinds of loads, you should be able to get fine performance without any crimp. I deep seat bullets, and crimp just enough to get rid of the flare. My light target loads are running 970 fps with a 120 grain SWC, and they shoot very well, no...
