    Why I use 2 scales when setting a powder measure. My Dad always did. Maybe he had the problem you discovered. Scale weight check set is your friend.

    Checked out loading PC'd bullets for the .32ACP for the 1st time. Haven't loaded .32ACP in 20+yrs. Adjusted the seat/roll crimp die to handle #311252 - sized .311, 1st bullets from my own casting efforts. Before I had loaded J's or bought cast from...

    This thread came along in good time for me. I'm about to load .32ACP for the first time in I can't remember when. Certainly not in this century. Have to check my RCBS die set to see if it has a taper crimp die/seater.

    I never had much luck with a light bullet out past 50yrds. Tried the Saeco #317 122gr TCBB and Lyman #356402 120gr TC. Used the Lyman #358156GC over Max 2400. At 100yrds the lighter bullets would group no better the 6 inches at 100yrds. The...

    Yep, I keep both cylinders in the pistol rug with their revolver. I did buy an OM Ruger Single Six that was sold as a .22LR. The salesman even pulled out the cylinder to show me it didn't fit a .22Mag. It didn't fit a .22Mag because the...

    Most of My shell holders are RCBS. They fit best in My RCBS Hand Priming Tool. But so do Lyman, Hornady and Redding. Lee are sloppy and messed up my 3D primer catcher by damaging the "primer kickout" piece. And one of them for the .44Russian will...

    Yes and no. Before Cowboy dies RCBS offered 2 different die sets for the .44-40 Cartridge. One for Jacketed and another for Cast. I bought the one for Jacketed in 1983, My Dad had given me a stash of 1,000+ Remington & Winchester Jacketed...

    I've a pair Lee 2cav #401-175-TC molds. I can produce about 300+ bullets an hour. While I have at least 5 Lee 6cav molds and Lee does offer that 40cal mold in 6cav, I probably won't buy one. Casting quantity is more dependent on a smooth...

    Sorry I have No love for the .243Win, tried it using a Rem600. It didn't kill any better then a .250-3000 with 100gr Sierra's and wasn't as accurate as my old Savage 99-A. My ancient .257Rob'ts uses 115-120gr bullets shoots farther and kills...

    Just to add more confusion. Getting the Gas Checks on straight is Extremly Important for accuracy. Lyman makes a gas check seater that fits on both their Lube-Sizer & the RCBS. And Saeco makes a built in one for their Lube-Sizer. These are...

    Saeco makes the #354 Gas Check and #353 Flat Base. I have put a few thousand of the Gas Check version though 3 or 4 Marlins with MicroGroove and a Browning 92. Feed easily and shot well.

    I've had this happen. It's why I stack the cartridge boxes next to the tumbler. So I know what is in the tumbler. Lyman sells "Brass Baggies" that can be used to tumble different calibers at the same time. Like .32ACP and 10mmAuto. I have a...
