    This is a 444 Marlin case that was necked down using a 40 S&W/10mm sizing die. You should be able to do the same thing. If it doesn't want to fit, you can use a 30-06 or similar die to put a taper on the neck. Sent from my SM-S820L using Tapatalk

    I had to replace a spade connector on my Lyman furnace earlier this week. Wish I had sooner. It's like a brand new furnace. I have to figure out the new temp settings now. I was running 7-9, depending on the mould. Now, I'm getting frost at 6. It...
