    Walks replied to a thread Lee Mould Handles in Casting Equipment
    I modified an RCBS set of handles for My OLD 2cav Lachmiller molds. I also modified a Lee set last year. I think I prefer RCBS handles over all others.

    Of course there are times when you do catch a deal. Sold my last H&G about 10yrs ago. It was a 10cav #50 with handles. Bought it for $40 at a gun show in 1979. Just hadn't cast a 38 wadcutter in the 20yrs before that. Made $100. And some folks...

    1cav - $35 2cav - $50 4cav - $70 Then it depends on MANY factors. How bad do I want the mold ? Condition of the Mold ? Has it been abused ? Does it have rust on it ? Rust scars ? Any strange screws ? Do I have handles to fit it ? Do I...

    I've loaded and shot Black Powder for years. Never needed to break down BP ammo before. Just loaded what I needed for the next shoot, and shot up leftovers within a month. Haven't shot BP Cartridge in at least 15yrs. And just found 3rds of...

    Walks replied to a thread Air cool vs water cool in Cast Boolits
    Never had ANY Problems water dropping bullets. No dents, I water drop into a 5gal. bucket. With 4 gal. of water, I put a wet towel over the top of the bucket with a 4" hole cut into the center. The towel contacts the water. Bullets hit the wet towel...

    I grew up on it. My Dad loaded it in just about every cast bullet load with the exception of His Bullseye Competition Loads and Hot .357Mag & .44Mag loads. And that is a lot of .380, .38Spl, .44Spl , .45Colt, .45ACP Hardball. And a bunch of rifle...

    Wouldn't that be .327 Fed Mag. And It's a light cartridge. If you're going to put it in a heavy rifle, you might as well go with a bigger cartridge. I think the 1st batch of 1894CL's in .32-20 were Great Guns. Wish I still had mine. And...

    I will put You in My Prayers tonight. I know how hard it is to watch a Parent suffer until the end. We had to do it twice. My Wife and I are hanging on by our fingernails too. Prayers help sooth the Soul.

    Yep, the Rotating Drum PM is the most Consistent, Period. Have Lyman, RCBS(2), Hornady L-N-L & older style, and a Redding BR-3. No sliding bar measures for me. They stick.

    Good Luck with Lyman. Three's years ago it took me two trys to get Lyman to make it right with two new undersized molds. Why I bought a N.O.E. 4cav mold. It was so nice I bought a N.O.E. version of the Lyman #452423, the bullets fairly Leap out...

    Walks replied to a thread Lee Mould Handles in Casting Equipment
    RCBS has made the same handles since they bought out Lachmiller/Ohaus. Lyman just changed over to the Saeco type. And as far as I know Lee handles fit all Lyman 2cav and RCBS. N.O.E., MP and Accurate too. So what is your question ?

    I hear about .44-40 cases getting crushed all the time. The other Cowboy Shooters at My old club complained about it all the time. I consider myself Very Very Fortunate to have a set of early Lyman All-American dies from the 1960's. The sizer...
