    I did not really get into pistols period until I was pushing 60. And at that it took me a while to get hooked on revolvers. But it happened. Started with a 22 + yr old Heritage Rough Rider switch cylinder in .22lr and .22mag. I just never could...

    You know Kydex is not hard to work with. A few sheets of Kydex, a harbor freight heat gun, some double cap rivets or small grommets. (I prefer grommets) Use a pad made from an old towel folded to appropriate size for the bottom. Another for...

    That is my vote also. I had 2 9mm's keyholing badly with the Lee .356 124. I feed both with those .358 125 rnfp as cast. No sizing. Alloy is roughly 50% COWW and 50% range scrap or soft lead with 1% tin/pewter added. They come out .359-.3595...

    My favorite is the Lee .312 185 gr gas check. Size to suit your barrel. Second favorite is the little .314 90 gr tumble lubed Truncated Cone by lee. This is an awesome plinking or small game round. Over 4-5 grains of Red Dot it is quiet, and...

    You can order specialized sizes from leeprecision.com, but just expect a long wait time. I ordered a .275 for paper patching my .270 Win. Took a long while, like 6+ weeks. I couldn't find a size close to what I need to hone out. If I need a certain...

    I have 5 different 9mm pistols. What I did was to slug them and compare all there bores. I chose to size to the biggest and went with .357 inches. Then I measured the chambers of them all used the shortets COL. Next was the crimp I started with...

    The flip side of that coin is being able to load for your .410 in a SHTF situation. I personally prefer the magtech 2.5" brass hulls. But finding data for smokeless powder takes some real google-fu. Not to say it can't be done, just not easy. ...

    You know you don't have to make ed's red. You can use straight dextron. Works great for leading, cleaning and lubricating revolvers, just about anything you can imagine. Little Dextron on a q-tip or patch and go to town.
