    jimkim started a thread Press ID in Reloading Equipment
    A fella posted this picture on a FB page. He wanted to know, what it is. Most people just said it's a RC. A few said RCII. It does resemble one, but the thing that is bugging me, is that setscrew, and the frame looks a little different. I'm no...

    If the pin will come out the top at all, I use this technique. I prefer to use a brass punch though. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    I made my own panel by sandwiching cardboard, fiberglass insulation(thin), and hightemp resistant silicone rubber together. I also added a thin piece of plastic on the front. I have an older Lyman Mould Master XX furnace. I think you can use just...

    Do you have room for a separate expander die? You could use an M die, or an NOE expander in a Lee expander die. If you have access to a lathe you could also turn your own expander plug, or even knurl the one you have. Then turn it down to the...

    I would add some trim on the front. You could also add it all the way around and use it to make a lip on the back and sides. If you wanted you could notch the trim for your press, and have a lip all the way around.

    Check the molds very carefully for even super thin slivers of alloy built up on the face. It won't take but a few mils to make whiskers on the bullets. Also don't worry about skimming. Just rake the dross out of the way enough to add new alloy. The...

    The scrap yards just do not want to mess with the general public buying lead. Liability may play a part ... or not. Definitely no law regarding the matter. I had the same story locally and when I called their main office, it was no problem to buy a...

    This will only happen with high concentrations of antimony in lead with no tin in it. The thick stuff is the antimony trying to float out. Even if you try to skim it off the top, you will find very little difference between what you skimmed and...

    I'd try that first. I've never seen a 30-30 seating die that won't crimp. That said, since you already have the die body, just order a crimping sleeve/collet and stick it in the 8mm die body. You may find a cheaper one at Titan Reloading. ...

    I either use a kinetic puller or a press with a multitool or needlenose pliers. One thing tbat really helps is to bump the bullet with a seater and break the neck tension. When I use pliers or a multitool, and an aluminum press I put a Lee FCD...
