    Yes but a huge difference between 125 gr and 158's. If you want to stay with the light bullets go with a faster powder. If you want to use Blue Dot, go heavy.

    Never had it happen for me with 7.62x54r brass. Something fishy in denmark. Wrong die, something.

    About half and half. I shoot some .314 90 gr TC TL those are plain base. Mostly these are over light loads of Red Dot. I also shoot the Lee .312 185 gr those are checked. These I use the 4895 and they are probably fast enough that the gas...

    Nice old Roller! I like the straight taper case too. I am not sure what it is, but I always like seeing rimmed cases in single shot rifles. Just seems to fit for some reason. Enjoy!

    I had this exactly on my Mosin Nagant. Just at the point where the brass ended was a square edge, sharp at the end of the neck. If the nose of the bullet was a smidge too big it shaved a chunk of lead while it was being inserted. Caused chambering...

    Generally that what most do. Have one lube for cold extreme and another for hot extreme. That's why some make their own and formulate it according. The ultimate lube quest and simple lube thread is a great read. I was stationed in So Cal and you...

    <------ another tight wad with a lee hardness tester. I am proud of what I can accomplish with .05 cent bullet. I like watching Elvis ammo and FortuneCookie. I have used tips for both of them. Pre warming my bullets helped a lot. Elvis put them in...

    Did the turkey breast last night. Now this was one half, bone included, skin, ribs, and the bones in front that support the wings. I wanted to finish with the turkey done, and a rice bowl on top. So I put the turkey in for 6 minutes, with...

    I'm interested in your 20 and 16 ga conversion kits. Already have an older 12 ga easy loader which I love dearly. So really not interested in the loader. If you are not interested, that is fine. If you are PM me we'll see if we can agree...

    I have 3 carbines, 9mm, .40sw, .45acp. Really love the .45. All have Red Dots on them, folding foregrip. Foregrip works great at the range. Holds the gun up off the table at a comfortable height, easy to pivot, aim up, down. They work. ...

    Vote with your feet and your pocketbook. Recob's, BPI, similar company's would love to have your business. Plan ahead, stock up a little bit. Buy 2 or more 8 lb jugs and 10,000 rounds of primers that spreads that hazmat out to where you hardly...

    Bluedot likes HEAVY bullets. I prefer Red Dot in my 9mm, well in most things to be honest. I have shot 9mm loaded from 3 grains of Red Dot to 4.5 grains (In carbine) with no issues. Bullet does need to be big enough. Make a dummy round...

    .... I just talked the wife into letting me get a .357 Mag for self defense while hunting. I figured the gun was a false sense of security any ways. But I was hoping to keep up the lie to myself. I know without a doubt, that is nothing my 200lb butt...

    I get my lead from the scrap yards. I would seriously have a talk with him. Then take him down to the scrap yard and turn them in and then get some lead from the scrap dealer that wont kill you and potentially the neighborhood. Then you scrap it...
