    I drooled over several of these. Really tempted by the Rolling Block in .32sw long. But I really don't need another range toy, and I've shot my wad for this month. Great pictures, awesome writeups, best of luck to you sir.

    What kind of gear oil is that used? Also I am trying to source out micro crystalline wax? I have found some from craft sources for microcrystalline modeling waxes and blended waxes doesn't list your melt temps.

    Last time I did that, they gave me "dirty brass" prices. Made about 25 bucks, don't remember how much the jackets weighed but it was heavy. I am not trying to make money. I just want free lead. Scrap what I can just to refill my propane tanks to...

    That is why I visual check all cases. Made a few gauges out of dowel rods with a line for deeper bottle neck cases. After blowing up my 6.5 Grendel I take extra precautions. I only have 2 eyes, 10 fingers, and one life living on a tight budget. Now...

    Like Beemer I have really not used my 20 round mags much. Yes I know about opening up the bottom of the bolt, and I could have done it. Mostly I just learned to appreciate it the way it was made. Mine sits in the basement across the arms...

    Set your 9mm case in the shell holder. Raise the ram full up. Then screw in your Lee CFCD till you feel resistence or gets slightly tight. That's how you adjust amount of crimp. Lock the die down. You can have none to some crimp. Then you adjust the...

    I am quickly turning into a big fan of the lowly .32SW Long cartridge. Brass is not expensive, thrifty on lead and powder, easy to load, fun to shoot. I found a pair of speed loaders for my little H&R 733 nickle and 732 blued revolvers. ...

    I got a wooden shadow box from the craft store. Then got the little wooden balsa planks that are like ~.25 or 8th" thick to make dividers with. You can cut the wood with a razor blade. Glued in the dividers and painted it fire house red. Then using...

    I have a closet reloading room. I went to the hobby/craft store and got those narrow little balsa wood boxes and heavy duty stick on wall hooks (they hold like 5lbs each). Then Put three hooks per box and stuck them to the wall. Each box holds 3 or...

    I'm with Mary. I don't think I have ever cleaned mine yet. Oiled a few parts, pull a dry patch through the bore to remove loose powder carbon and that is it. Like her I had one mag that was iffy, and 5 minutes of comparing it to the ones that...

    I like half Clip on Wheel weights, half soft lead range scrap, water pipe, roof flashing, and 1% tin/pewter. Works for everything I do but I don't try to break the 2k speed mark.

    I'd love to have one but pretty rich for my blood. Even the single sixes in .32H&R Mag seem to sell for more than I'd like to spend. I thought ruger made guns the average guy could afford. What happened to that?

    I do both. Still "spearmintin" with PC. Until I get the kinks out I mostly lube. Both are pretty easy. My goal was PC for high volume shooting but lubing has been quicker actually.

    I would try a load work up with bullet you all ready have for the 25-35. Since your after accuracy look for something with a point and higher BC. Heavier bullets will help with wind and increased velocity retention.

    Most of my molds are lee 356-125-RN, .277-130-F, 308-150(?)-RF. When I started casting for my Grendel I got the NOE mold .266-125. Then I got the Lyman mold for my .50 cal muzzle loader to experiment with (tried playing the TC bullets but they are...

    The scopes I got had the Rapid Reticle type (Weaver and Nickon Prostaffs). They were called ballistic reticles. Gives me confidence when taking shots past 100 yrds. With my .270 Winchester drop to between the 2nd and 3rd line 200 yards.

    Load em up and find all your accuracy nodes in that gun till it leads or shows signs of over pressure with out exceeding max load. When I do my test I start 10% low and go to max in .4-.7g increments while keeping an eye on the bore and brass. Pick...

    Add some wheel weights or reclaimed lead shot. I run just Range Scraps with a touch of tin with no problems in 9mm and have started 50/50 Range Scraps to COWW in riffle with no problems. I have the Lee Tester and mix and match.

    I inspect and cull as I cast. I got a wooden box that's toweled lined. With two small wooden boxes in the corners. I cut the sprue and it goes into the rejected bullet box. Once I get a good size pile. I inspect and sort. Rejects go in with the...
