    I see his hand everywhere I look. I feel his power with every thunderstorm that rumbles across the prairie. I personally have always felt closest to him in the wild places. Sitting under a tree listening to the sweet sound of water and a...

    I loaded up a few buckshots to play with aswell with the LEE .311 RB. 9 of them equal a rounded up ounce, 11 equal about 1 1/8th oz and 12 make 1 1/4 oz. Got a few test rounds loaded up waiting for the weekend. Mostly 9 pellets in a WAA12 wad and a...

    I have 3, 9mm, .40sw and .45acp. No real desire for 10mm or .380. Like you said, you just can't run 10 rounds through one without getting that big smile on your face. Everyone I've seen shoot one turns around with that big Grin. It just is.

    I agree with Tazman about heavy bullets for shooting those chickens. I've shot Red Dot in my 9mm's from 3 to 4.5 grains. The hotter loads were shot in a single shot handi rifle barrel and a Hipoint Carbine. The Handi rifle barrel puts them in...

    Get some vasaline from the dollar store and you have the basic ingredients for River's Simple Lube. Then you can experiment to your hearts content.

    Pricey is right. Things like this cause an internal struggle. I want that and its priced about right. You want to support the small guys. Then I look at my budget, double check my wallet and life goals. Then go I go cast some more buck shot with my...

    I use the Lee Load All 2. I cant compare to anything else. It works just fine for me. I shoot a couple hundred rounds a month for clay busting and just started buck and slugs. I am sure my horrible crimps would be just as bad on any other machine....

    Looked like short sight radius to me. Doubt it shoots significantly better than my Hipoint Carbine in .45acp. Plus you could just about get 2 Hipoints for the price of one of those. Interesting though.

    Best tip I saw was someone who drilled a hole in powder/shot bin just smaller than the foam earplugs you can get for the range. Need to make a change? Grab a bowl, pull the plug, same on the other side. Made things a lot simplier. Me I went with...

    As long as you cast bullets with perfect bases, then pan lubing can be difficult. Thrity cals are pretty easy, 27 cals get a little frustrating but its those darn 6.5s that will have you cursing the gods of dominos as the fall over like lemmings. I...

    Not many of those in my history. Generally speaking if it performs well enough to be useful I kept it. I've sold a few, and the few I've sold I do not miss at all. Perfect example was a really really nice Brazilian .410 side by side. Hand cut...

    I have shot #1 buckshot through both of my H&R 2.5 inch barreled revolvers. Actually found it worked best squished slightly then run through a .314 lee sizing die. Easy to load, grouped well enough on paper at 20 feet. So then I tried some...
