    Richard Lee didn't come up with the "soup can" . LYMAN had a .30 cal mold shaped like a "soup can" before 90% of the folks on this Forum were born. LEE just resurrected it.

    Walks replied to a thread SWC design differences? in Cast Boolits
    Tom at ACCURATE is a SAINT. I did a real stupid and had to send the mold back to him. He fixed it at no charge. I am champing at the bit to start casting with the "fixed" mold, but it arrived back home along with the Heat Wave. So I'm waiting...

    DP, I grew up on a pump gun. Finally I got a chance to shoot a couple of Semi-Auto's. A Browning AUTO-5 and a REMINGTON 11-48. That was a wake up call, me stepping back, muzzle waving every which way. I had a REM 870 TRAP gun from 12yrs to...

    I seem to remember that the S&W Model 19 was designed as a lighter carry gun for Police Officers who wanted .357Mag power in a lighter gun. The idea was they would practice with std .38Spl loads and carry .357Mag loads for on duty work. In the...
