    Kool lube is a remarkable product. I'm sure that you won't be disappointed with that! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    I can see where you could do that conversion, you would have to use the 30 carbine die for final case prep if you are turning down the rim first. The final dimensions are likely a little short though? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    I do use bullets intended for 357 magnum. They are definitely fun to shoot! The full loads with 240-250gr are definitely not comfortable for long sessions. My kids and wife and I all have 35wcf 1895's and they definitely do the job! From ground...

    A little bit of explanation - I did start with 50+ pieces stuck like that! I tried wiggling with fingers and pliers and multiple hands. The photo is what was left! I think that the kinetic puller is far simpler than the wiggle method! Sent...

    Thank you all for the help!!! Ended up using the kinetic bullet puller. Tried vibration with both the tumbler and an ocillatiing saw against the cases - worked on a few!!!! My boys helped me with it, and we all took the lesson of checking in the...

    I personally like the Saeco. I have several 1895's in 35wcf and that seems to work well for all of them. I do have an older rcbs 200gr that is good - just not as good as the Saeco. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    By the way, these are what's left from 4 of us after 3 hours of wiggling! And in literally every position I could think of! Just a thought, would an acid or base soften crushed walnut shells to the point where these would loosen? Sent from my...

    I dropped 80 pieces of 44 brass (Russian, special, magnum - mixed) into my tumbler on the way through the reloading room and hit the switch last night. Came home to this tonight.....218 Bee was already in there! Anyone have advice to get these...

    Does anyone have a bullet design or mold that is useful in both the Bee and the Hornet? Pretty much exclusively used on ground squirrels and other small game up to coyote. Thank you! Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    I make 30-03 brass from 270 as explained above with COW and tissue. I have to say it's easier than anything else I fire form as far as brass goes. Remember that the OAL will be long, so trimming will be required afterwards. Sent from my Pixel 3...

    Thank you! Guess I'm a little lost as to why I haven't encountered this? I do full length resize each time and get 7-10 uses out of each piece. I just went through my bins and can't see (or measure with calipers) a bulge in the few I grabbed. Is...

    Okay - please pardon my ignorance. I have loaded 338 WM, 458WM, and several Weatherby cartridges for years and don't know about the bulge? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
