    O.K., dumb questions...My revolver throats measure .358, and barrel groove diameter is .3567, measured by Dardas before they went out of business. I ordered some boolits from an on-line company which has very good reviews and good service. I...

    I used to go to a bagel shop next to a starpucks. I piggybacked off their Wi-Fi, no problem. Unfortunately they closed. Now I go to Coffee Bean, don't know what their Corp policy is on 2A. But That Store Mgr shoots at the same indoor range as...

    Conservative, or whatever you may wish to call it. After using Blue Dot very satisfactorily behind 150-158 cast SWCs, the warning about 125 gr boolits made me a bit skittish, seeing as how that is my other most-used projectile weight. I know...

    Remember that Guanantees from both only cover two years because of the electronics. I have the old pots from both. But when one does die, I will buy a new RCBS pot. Even though the display is on the side. RCBS still has the BEST CUSTOMER...

    When I was a kid in the early 1960's, we used to go out to Arizona to visit an old Shipmate of My Dad's. He had an old Thompson M1 Submachine gun. We would bring out a couple thousand rounds of .45ACP loaded to max with 225gr RN from a H&G 8cav...

    I decided to try something. I got a .357 case, measured and marked to the base of a 158 gr SWC boolit, which I figured would be the longest projectile I'd be likely to use, then used my Dremel to cut it off at the bottom edge of the line, to...

    When I shot Max-Power .38-44, .357Mag, .44Mag and Especially. 454 Casull, I would keep cases trimmed. Because they did grow. I crimped and seated at the same time, almost always in a Keith Type crimp groove. Later on Taper Crimp be came...

    Depends on how sharp the nose is ? I know of two (personally) blown up lever guns that had detonations in the mag tubes from round nose bullets. Back in the day (20yrs ago+) When I had time to cast bullets for my 2Kids Cowboy guns, I used 2...

    Just size them base first. Otherwise you could maybe strip off the gas check.

    Looks like you applied TOO much crimp. Is your case way too long. What Mold does that bullet drop from ? Doesn't quite look like a #452374. Is it from a Lee mold? Almost looks like it was sized from the bottom in a Lube-Sizer, from a too big...
