    Tim you may be forgetting some of our past disagreements. I have not. Thus injected them into your post. It's much better if we both just forget it. Now I think I may of made a mistake stirring up old disagreements. In the end I'm sure we would...

    It's one of those guilty until proven innocent things. Europe ammo is not made to SAMI spec. My experience is out dated. Going back to the 1970's. Stuff like Geco that had such thick cases a load of Blue Dot that was fine in other brass. Would...

    My sentiments. RRA makes nice rifles. I've shot one of there 9mm's but don't own one. Since I can't have everything. The 9mm's are such a fluke I'd hate to spend the time learning the ins and outs of building one. Just buy the thing built. I'd...

    GabbyM replied to a thread IMR 4198 for Cast in Cast Boolits
    As stated above. I got great accuracy from 4198. It's just hard to meter it's long stick. Hodgdon is shorter but still long stick. Those powders that shoot so well are why you see high tech electronic dribble to weight powder measures. Many...

    For load data. What is important with charge weight to a certain bullet weight. Is the depth inside the case. Lyman 122 grain TC load data can be transferred to the various 122 gr TCFP cast bullets. However the cartridge overall length. C.O.L....

    Something tells me these creeps would not get any support from even the worst bottom feeders of our society. I've great animosity for men like Al Sharpton. But lets get real here. Even he would not promote this sort of violence. This is way over the...

    You fellows have some nice mounts. I just screwed my machine down to a bench top. With front hanging over the edge enough to clear the bullet ramp. When I run it I have an old lamp table that is just the right height, after shimming with a 2x6, to...

    If you shoot straight wheel weight hollow points 1,100 fps the nose petals will break off. Rest of the slug stays solid to penetrate. Fragmenting bullets can do well against small varmint size targets. Cut our WW with 1/4 pure or at least soft lead...

    Your seating stem is probably a 28 pitch thread on a 1/4 x 28 seater stem. That is 28 threads per inch. So 28 turns on the seat screw gives you one inch. One turn is 1/28th of an inch or .0357" which rounds to .036". Thus if you want to seat .018"...

    Lyman made that bullet in about three weights over the years. Older ones being lighter. If you have one of the 45 or 50 grain molds it should work great.

    I've had excellent results with H-4198, AA Lt32 or Rl7 in 5.56mm AR-15's. I switched to AA LT-32 from H-4198 to get a shorter stick powder that wound meter better. I prefer the stick powders over the ball powder in an AR-15. Jacketed or cast so that...

    If you have a chamber with a true SAMI dimension chamber. Full length dies move brass very little. From the small sampling of rifles I've loaded for the last few decades. It seams to me the newer rifles have much tighter chambers than the old...

    When you're done cleaning. I'd recommend a coffee can with enough oil to submerge the entire firearm. 50/50 mix of ATF and K1 kerosene. ATF has loads of anti rust additives. Thinning with K1, available at hardware stores as lamp oil, reduces surface...

    Answer is no. Foster Bump dies have a chamber size internal body like most neck dies have. .308 being wider at the shoulder your 30-06 would be loose and unguided when neck enters the die bushing. Also the 308 has a 20 degree shoulder angle while...

    You can nearly totally eliminate issue while decapping crimped primers by deburring the flash hole first. Pin breaks are caused either from the pin being caught by a burr then deflected away from the hole or the pin pushing a burr into the hole...
