    Absolutely gorgeous work! I like your design. most of the pictures came through for me on the computer I am using with a Linux operating system. I would love to have more details to assess my own ability to build one myself. This action would be...

    Hornady has the lock-n-load bushings too. They even have an adapter for theirs. It replaces the threaded bushing in RC and LCC presses. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    Around here, they haven't been planting as many grains and other crops, that I normally associate with good quail hunting. I have heard a few folks complain about poor hunting. I think a lot of it has to do with them either starving, or going where...

    I thinking a slug like the Lee key drive would be more structurally sound. I could always machine the plug and add a second brace(?) and shorten it a little. For that matter, it wouldn't be too hard to make one for the Lyman. Maybe doubling the...

    That's the exact reason I ended up loading without a wad. If I grooved the slugs, it probably wouldn't be as much of an issue, but at the time, I was worried about issues with airspace, or the wad knocking the bullet a bit cockeyed. It was an...
