    Yep. I also have an rcbs and a Lyman 45 and had a lyman 450. The, star when properly adjusted, puts lube only in the lube groove and it's a pass through sizer. It's not the best for installing gas checks but controls lube very well.

    Do the trigger job yourself. They are not hard to do. Shorten the sticky out part of the sear and polish the bottom that rides on the sear release lever. Also polish the top of the sear lever. Do not change the angle of either. You can also install...

    Although Glocks are very reliable, as a range officer for DOC I saw two that failed to feed with factory ammo. Still, not bad for as many rounds as I saw fired and fired my self with the G22. Glocks are tough, reliable and accurate but for me they...

    I use a Star lube sizer which leaves the boolit lube only in the groove where it belongs. Since getting the Star I now longer have to clean out the seating die.

    I always open my hornet with the back of the barrel pointed at my chest. Keeps from chasing brass into the next county.

    I have one of the first Rem 700 Vs in 223. It used to shoot 5/8" groups with most 50/55 gr bullets but after about 8000 rds it's tough to get it to hold under an inch. With it's 1/12 twist it still shoots cast fairly well. It's still one of my...

    I use 444M cases with a 44cal gc upside down over powder then a cardboard wad and 3/4oz of shot with a thin card wad glued in with silicone. They work well and have plenty of pop. I think H110 is a poor choice for powder. It's been a while but I...

    I have three pro 1000s and all three have the same problem. The powder thrower spits bits of powder which fall directly into the primer slide jamming up the works. I have made small primer slide covers from milk jug plastic which fixed that. They...

    Sounds like it's running just a bit lean at idle. Open (turn left) the idle mixture screw about 1/8 turn and see if that helps

    Only you can answer your question but do a test. Load some without any prep work other than cleaning the brass and see if it makes any difference in the way it works. If it works better it may be worth it. If not, maybe looks are important enough to...

    Most 458 Wins that I've seen are heavier than I would like to carry around in the woods. I Have a Puma 92 in 454 that throws a 320gr cast at right at 2000fps if you want to push it. I shot one deer with it using that same boolit at 1600 and it...

    A 230 gr boolits is quite heavy for a 357. The heaviest that I have ever shot in the 357 was a 200 gr RN Lyman. I don't even remember a load for a bullet that heavy.

    A few years ago I found a 23 in 25/20 and decided It needed a scope. Not wanting to drill any new holes I got a universal 22lr scope base and just used the one large rear sight screw hole with some epoxy under the mount and it's been working fine...

    You might have a little problem finding a load for that 265 gr. 30-30 boolit.

    I shot Cowboy action for a number of years. I used several different home cast boolits mostly 38 special, and 45 Colt and as long as I loaded them to the suggested OAL in the loading manual I never had a jam. We can sometimes over think the loading...

    Yes, I trust my ammo as it feeds and shoots very well as apposed to some of the factory HPs that occasionally malfunction. You are responsible for your bullet even if it goes through a bad guy. I use a 45acp which doesn't penetrate as badly as...

    A handicap is what puts the fun in hunting. I hunt the early season with a bow and if I don't get one that way I just grab a rifle from the rack and go pop a deer for the freezer. I have never shot at a game animal past about 325 yds. The only...

    I'm not interested in any of the newer rounds or the AR rifles. The newest one I have is probably the 416 Rem only because I couldn't find a 416 Taylor that I could afford. Some of my favorites are 22H and KH, 25/20, 300H&H, 358Norma, 38spl and...
