    Avogunner It's my favourite cartridge on the planet! It's not really that difficult to find - but it can be pricey. There is brass on Midway, loaded ammo on selway armory and Graf and sons, and Buffalo Arms has loaded stuff also. The...

    I have a set that I bought at a gun show. They appear to be 444 Marlin dies with a machined plug in the seater die. The final step is a roll over crimp die. I've only been loading brass for my wife's Judge and my boys' shotguns. I know the...

    WRideout. The best of memories are made this way! My grandfather would take me along to shoot clays - me with a 32 ga double, him with his 1911! (he would easily outshoot me even that way). My boys all love the reloading room and of course...

    Buffalo Arms offers a reproduction Lyman 21. It's around $160 +/- if I remember right. Easy installation, great craftsmanship, and works exactly like my originals. I put one on my daughter's '95 - 35 WCF. She can shoot the lights out with that...

    Wonderful find! The rest of the responses are spot on - 2 blackpowder rounds which was Winchester's way of hedging against that new fangled smokeless powder, and 6 smokeless offerings (30 Army, 30-03, 30-06, 303 British, 35WCF, 405WCF). Count...

    In a roundabout way they did make some 25-20 recently. Load-X is selling it. I had a chance to visit with those fellas and was told they'll make darn near anything for you - with an order of 100,000 pieces. Sent from my HTC6545LVW using...

    It really doesn't matter much what sort of media is used as long as it isn't flammable and fills the case cheaply and completely. The flavoured part would concern me with the flavouring being sugar or something of the like - which would of course...

    I did something stupid today in the reloading room!! I was reloading 38 Short Colt and had set my powder drum to 2.2gr. Well... 55 rounds into it I realized that my drum was getting emptier far faster than it should. It was dumping 3.2gr of...
