    I wash my range scrap as well. I realize that it will come out when its smelting but it really eliminates a lot of dirt before even goes into my pot. Just load it up wet and start that way and you wont have any tinsel fairy issues. I dont see the...

    If you have any that are still not loaded do the "smash test" and see if its coming off.

    My real answer is "it all depends". Depends on how I feel and how my back feels. It depends on how my boolits are casting, how much time I have. It just all depends. For the most part I do at least 20lb runs and if I have time and feel good I'll...

    I think I'm going to send it to Doug. I dont think you can beat this deal for $60 shipped. Beats trying to work around this problem by deep seating bullets. From my understanding this should also improve accuracy. From Dougs PM I received...

    I just ordered Lee 356-120-TC so It will be here tomorrow. I still think that this barrel could use throat reaming so I PMed Doug for more info. I would really like to get that throat reamed to .358 so I can shoot the same ammo as my P320. I think...

    Must be the bullet profile because I run .3575 @ 1.110 in my Sig P320 with great results but there is no way that round would fit in my Canik. I tried that already. Maybe I should try different bullet profile before I start reaming anything that...

    I got that to works with my Sig P320 but It wont work with most guns as you need large chamber with long freebore to chamber that round correctly. On one side you are decreasing case volume by seating that bullet deep and on the other hand you have...

    I'm shooting .357 out of my P320 so i thought maybe they would work but they dont fit in this Canik. I used marker method as described. Thats why I went down to .356 and I have to seat them short too @ 1.090max or they hit rifling. Everything in...

    marek313 replied to a thread Stopped by Bass Pro in Our Town
    I have BassPro near me in Atlantic City NJ. I only go there if I need something right now because mark up is insane. Powders are $30-45 and primers are over$40 a box. I just went to gun show in Philly and picked up about 10lbs of powders and 5k of...

    I recently purchased Canik TP9 SFX and while it shoots great groups with FMJs it doesnt work so well with cast. I'm using Lee 356-125-2R PCed around 14BHN sized to .356, COL-1.090max. I like to have variety of powders on hand so I tried loads with...

    Doesnt that defeat the purpose of annealing if you water drop it at the end? Wouldnt that harden it back up? I was under the impression that it needs to slowly cool in room temp to anneal properly. I'm not an expert on annealing though. I tried...

    I love my GP100 MC and the extra couple $$$ are def worth it over standard version. I really wanted 6" half lug barrel but you cant get that on GP100 and full lug 6" is so front heavy that it makes it unbalanced. 4.2" that it comes with is enough...

    That may have been over generalization on my part as I'm sure there are cases where TG works better then others but for what I'm loading 9/45/38/357 I prefer slower powders. I dont load 32acp or anything small like that so I dont have to worry about...

    Man I would love to swap my 4lbs of TG for 4lbs of 231 as I use that more but hazmat shipping would kill this deal.

    We all do our own testing so here is my little 2 cents. I reload 9mm, 45acp, 38/357. I like to tinker with different powders as many here do so I usually have many pistol powders on hand. For a while I shot a lot of TG in both 9 and 45 and I thought...

    Just for comparison I walked around my range last few times when nobody was there picking up surface bullets only. No shovel or screen since range was still open and people could show up any min. Honestly i'm not even sure if we are allowed to mess...

    I cant bash Lee products because i use so many of them and most of them work just fine including my 4-20 pot. This was covered so many times here but if your pot is leaking its because of dirty alloy. Flux, clean, flux and clean again and again and...
