    I have not even shot mine yet but I checked out the reviews on the net and on here and saw very little negative response. After handling mine, at this point the only thing I see that's negitive about it is the length of the stock I'm 6'3" but I am...

    I just went out to check my mold and it does have only one wide grease groove. I guess it is my memory. I think my Lee 44 mold has two grease grooves.

    I am sure it is an older style Keith. I used to have one and may still have somewhere. My newer one has a crimp grove and two grease groves.

    I must be missing something, All I see is a Keith bullet that looks like it came from a Ideal or Lyman mold. I don't feel any pointed problem. Do you have a question? Did you make a previous post that I missed?

    Back a few years ago my brother shot a small 2 point (western count) mully with a 223 Thompson Contender rifle with a scope, at some what over a 100 yds. It was a shot through the spine about 10" below the neck.

    A Squib is a low velocity load with very light report. If you are asking what it takes to get a bullet stuck in the barrel, that would depend on barrel lengthy and powder type and how much you load of it. I have loaded as little as 3 grains of ...

    Picked this one up at an auction with a bunch of others. I think it may have cast a few but it's hard to tell if it's new or not. Free to your door.

    Sometimes we need special things for special guns. I have a revolver in 32 S&W long that has a .312 barrel and .321 throats. .321 boolits loaded in a 32 S&W case won't fit in the cylinders but a .321 heeled bullet works fairly well. I made a die for...

    I use the top punch to push the I pin down in the H die as far as it will go then insert the boolit and push it in the H die as far as you can with your fingers. Normally they will go in far enough to align properly.
