    I try not to lie!!! And Steve is an incredible resource. I amortized my brass investments out. I'm into it $0.055 right now counting losses / destruction. That ain't love, but that ain't bad. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Some years back I went hunting deer with a friend of mine in Tobago. The rifles were all chambered for 32 Long rimfire and could be made to fire another 32 CF case (S&W?). The question is - I was also given a handful of shot cartridges for fowl if...

    I gave $65/100 in September. I believe that was with shipping. I purchased 3 or 400. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    I just confirmed, Load X still has properly headstamped cases for sale. 707-579-0990 And they are nowhere near what you are paying! I think we're on load number 6-7 on the first 250. Yes they were annealed, and yes I crush a case here and...

    According to some experts, there were a couple of prototypes made for the cartridge. It's a necked down brass 12 gauge shell. Dimensions vary according to the source. There is/ was a gunmaker who made some functional examples a few years ago that...

    I use a similar method as Wayne. Size brass, use a dremel to split the case neck length wise, place the bullet into the action gently - close action gently, measure overall length. I repeat this several times. I believe that stepping back 0.003"...

    How do I double anneal? I have an annealeaz, but I cannot make it work for longer straight wall cases - which means that I use a drill / socket / map gas torch. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Thank you to all of you! Yes I do know that brass work hardens, but neck tension creating brittleness is an angle I've not thought of - excellent point. The ones that I have fired suffered an approximate 5% split rate. Fortunately, they were all...

    Greetings! I have a bit of an obsession currently with the Winchester self loading rifles. I aquired 350 +/- rounds of mixed 32, 35, 351, and 401 WSL factory ammunition loose (so little collector value). I have fired some, all with success. My...
