    poppy42 replied to a thread Lee 4# pot in Casting Equipment
    I used a Lee 4# pot for years before I got my 4/20. It was slow but it worked. With that being said only you can say whether or not it suits your needs . I will say had to 4 pound pot not been given to me I probably would’ve opted for at least a...

    I don’t know what it was. I was shocked. I expected them to say it’s broke you need to buy a new one. But nope, I quote “ we’ll send you a new one” . I’m certainly not complaining, maybe it was my charming personality on the phone LOL

    First off I want to thank everyone that responded to my previous post with suggestions on a new digital scale. Well on the advice of a friend I called Lyman to ask if there was a way to possibly reset the scale back to factory defaults. Well much...

    I’ve had an sr9e (basically the same gun without the loaded chamber indicator and the slide serrations are a little different ) and I’ve put over 5000 rounds through it. Not one problem! And I’ve outshot many more expensive guns with it! I love it!...

    The short answer to your question is yes I reload on a Turret press, including 223/556. I use a Lyman universal trimmer to trim my brass. I dont know what you mean by cleaning on a press, I tumble my brass. As for accuracy, I am certainly no MOA...

    Cast hot glue boolets and load with PRIMER ONLY! They should work just fine for what you’re doing ! As for liability you’re on your own with that I have no idea . Hope this helps

    I agree that’s the reason for my op. And by the way my $25.00 Lyman pocket scale was dead on when verified by my 505. I do agree that they break, eventually. So what! nothing lasts forever! Anyway keep the suggestions coming. So far I like the...

    Pretty much all I use in my 9 mm and 9 mm Makarov (9x18) is win231/HP-38 (its the exact same Powder just different labels) or unique. Unique can be a pain to meter so I do prefer win231/hp-38. I like the fact that win 231 has been around since 60s...
