    Walks replied to a thread Primers....LOL in Reloading Equipment
    I think the RCBS primer strips came out in 1994. Before the 2000 came out. I remember the strip loading tray and both a bench mounted & press mounted priming tool. Also CCI came out with primers already strip loaded. Different colors for each type...

    FREEDOM ARMS makes a BEAUTIFUL Gun. It's so wonderfully tight I have to carry cotton swabs to clean out the rim recesses in the cylinder. One tiny piece of unburned powder and the round won't chamber and the cylinder will tie up. I rarely get to...

    I guess I must be lucky in my MARLINS. My two 1894's have each had at least 15,000 rds apiece thru them without a hitch. I think the wear that supposed to cause jams wouldn't have shown up by now. I think perhaps this "jam 2" may be caused by poor...

    I have the 2nd version, except mine is probably 100yrs old. I got it from my DAD, who got it from his DAD. I only use it on my stash of FEDERAL Paper hulls. And only on old style LYMAN Slugs. Works great, slow as heck. But a perfect crimp every time.

    I have a 1895 CB that I've put plenty of hot loads through. And I previously owned an older 1895 24" from the 1st batch made back in the 1960's. Bought it used from a Man who hot loaded it. I loaded the same hot load with the SIERRA 300gr HP that...

    I'd also take a dremel tool with a FELT POLISHING WHEEL with a bit of Jeweler's rouge and run it over the feed surfaces. Easy does it. And clean well afterward.

    It's illegal in CA too. DOESN'T MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE. I've been driving SoCal freeways for almost 50yrs. Used to drive back & forth from the Harbor area to downtown every day BEFORE cellphones. I used to see woman puting makeup on, men...

    Pietro, That's not my experience. I've rubbed off the shine of 5-6 REMINGTON 700 BDL's, quad 0 steel wool (0000). I've hunted with them in the rain in CO & NM in & snow too. I've never done any water proofing. One time I slipped crossing a stream...

    Trailboss is the only suitable powder that you list. Overall length is CRITICAL. 1.600 MAX LYMAN#454424 will hang up on the front band going into the chamber. You would have to crimp over the front driving band to get a short enough overall...
