    I love my RIA Tac Ultra in 10mm. I also shoot 40s out of it without any issues which makes it nice because as others pointed out 10mm brass walks but 40 is easy to find. Didnt break my extractor yet from 40s neither <knocking on wood> I dont know...

    Its just one of those things where one gun will like something but not another. I noticed the same thing with my FNX45 it wont feed #68 but works fine with RN profile. My CZ97 has no issues with #68 which is a shame because i find it more accurate...

    I dont get as much snow as you guys but my **** breaks are locking up on my truck and I have to fix that. I hate working outside in weather like this. I hope it melts quick.

    This is such a broad questions and I dont think you can lock it down to a specific manufacturer. I like my ruger GP100 MC for a revolver and I would have to say my Sig P320 is one auto that will eat everything and loves cast. My last purchase was...

    I'd say after 30 years you cant really complain. Wish everything would last that long. I did complete breaks on my truck last march and last night I noticed one side locking up again. Not even one year it lasted. I'm sure you can fix that handle but...

    45acp are usually easy to resize and I never have to do it more then once. The only time I have to do it 3 times is when I'm forming new 300AAC cases out of LC 5.56. Brass spring back is a real thing but usually not something that you notice when...

    I only saw that once when I was using Lee handles on Lyman (if I remember correctly) mold. Redrilled holes with slightly larger ones and that fixed the issue. Yes its always something but as long as its something simple to fix I dont mind. Thats how...

    I might have to try this. I'm running my mold hot as i know cold temp makes this harder. I have it right at the point where more heat will rip chunks and not cut so its not a heat issue. Its a 4 cavity mold btw. I think pouring away from me might...

    I think what hes saying that even though rimless casings are designed to headspace on the case mouth there are many short cases (Hornady comes to mind) where in fact case headspaces on the extractor and case mouth never touches the chamber. I dont...

    Long thread in a long line of can you shoot 40S&W in 10auto. I was asking the same question not too long ago. After doing my research online I decided to give this a shot and shoot 40S&W in my 10mm RIA 1911. I cant vouch for other guns but I have no...

    I just got my first NOE mold 358-155-TC which casts great bullets but I'm having hard time breaking the sprue plate after casting. I dont have a lot of molds but none of my other molds such as Lee, Lyman, Saeco take a 2x4 to open it up. When I cast...

    I dont know the answer to that but I can tell you many people shoot 40S&W (myself included in my 10mm RIA Tac Ultra) in their 10mm guns without any issues. I dont know the reason behind this swap but 40 would shoot similar to sig 357 and brass and...

    357 brass can be hard to find while 38S brass is pretty common so I dont blame people for using what they have. My 38S load is Lee 130gr RN under 5gr of HP38/W231 and thats only used in my Ruger GP100 MC so no issues there. I use that because I find...

    I dont mind using my loadmaster as long as I prime on another press. There are many issues with that priming system and that alone can bind up your press. I still think turret is the bast press to use for consistent results.

    Maybe because I'm cheap or maybe because I dont shoot bulls eye type matches but I stick with hodgon, win, accurate and even vectan lately. Maybe VV is more accurate but for mainly steel shooting and little paper target I dont see the need to spend...

    PSA uses many FN barrels in their ARs which are pretty nice considering the price. I think I paid extra $100 to get FN chrome lined, cold hammer forged barrel in my PSA kit. I think it was worth it but you have to read the description carefully to...

    I dont know about the baby rock but I have full size RIA Tac Ultra 1911 in 10mm. In my gun at least the recoil rod and spring tend to get out of its notch and fall down until its sitting on the slide itself and its hard to take it apart when that...
