    I like both the heart and liver but I would not grind liver and add to hamburger. Hearts no issue but the taste and color of liver is not a good mix with hamburger in my opinion. Liver is reserved to liver and onions at my house.

    I have never used the RCBS PP swager so I don't know if this is even possible to create issues with 30 cal cases. With the Dillon 600 Super Swager on 223 cases the inside support is small enough that if you over swage the pocket you can collapse...

    CBC brass is much thicker than Winchester brass also, so maybe the extra pressure to crimp them is causing the bulge. And you are crimping way more than I do on my 44-40 rounds, using the same Redding profile crimper.

    I started casting in 1968 with Lyman 4 cavity for 45 Colt and 45/70. My most used molds are H&G 10, 8 or 6 cavity with a close second to my brass 4 cavity. The older Lyman's that I own cast on size or larger. The newer ones are on size or under. ...

    My bet is its caused by your crimp. Easy to test. Try some before and after your crimp.

    When you send payment you specify you want insurance and how much and yes if it's not part of the deal you have to pay extra. I have ordered around a 100 firearms mostly through GB. Two have had shipping damage.

    That time was a catch-22 situation for me. During the start of the panic I maybe had 20 rounds of 35 Rem brass as a range pickup but I had nothing chambered in 35 Rem. Because of the ammo and brass shortage I picked up a couple of 35 Rems cheap...

    That sounds like a Lyman 1200, so I don't need it. I already have a spare that size. Thanks for the offer, though.

    Just food for thought. Checkering a backstrap on a SA may not be the greatest idea. In the 70's I had a set of SA grips that was checkered on the backstrap. It was a 45 Colt but in a Blackhawk. With heavier loads the checkering would take the...
