    If had this little carbine for several years. It was missing some parts, so I put it on the back burner. Today I made a takedown screw for it, and shot it. I'm not too happy with the results. So what do I do now? New barrel? Put a bushing in it?...

    I think armadillos are the most considerate animals. If you hit one, and it doesn't kill him right off, he will bury himself. Now that is one thoughtful animal. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    Thanks! I'm considering having it hollow pointed. I haven't made up my mind yet. I've wanted one(a Loverin mould) since I first read of them. I couldn't believe it when I found this one for $25.00. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    I finally got a Loverin mould!!! It's a single cavity Ideal 311466. I'm pretty excited. I put it in my Lyman small handles, and didn't care too much about the fit. I tried it in my Lee six cavity handles. The dang thing seems to fit them better. Is...

    I have one like that. It works fine. I paid $45.00 for it, if that helps. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    Sorry it was out of stock. I didn't see that when I looked. If nothing else, you can use the Lee bullet sizing die, that was mentioned earlier. I'd put(actually I would just make my own, if I couldn't find one, but not everybody has that option) it...

    I use a Lee Loader for 30-30. I was thinking of buying an old(no tray) hand primer, or new one from Sinclair, to use with it. I have two AutoPrimes. This would be one of the old Lee hand primes with the screw in shelholders. Sent from my VS880...

    I'm wondering if they are outsourced to CH4D. I read, in a very dated article, that CH4D does some work for Redding, and several other companies, one being Pacific, another one Herters. Did I mention it was dated? Sent from my VS880 using...

    The stem, spring and cups are still out there for sale. Just ordered 5 0f each size on Amazon. I have two of the Posi-Prime tools and they are all I use to prime my cases. Bought the cup and spring to replace the ones on my rods.

    Yes, have done a lot of junk brass with live primers in a cast iron pot with a lid on it, a really cheap pot. Sounds like pop corn popping. Then sold the brass as scrap metal.

    I see a lot of factory ammo shot in our indoor range that will show what you are asking about. Some firing pin channels are on the large side and allow the primer brass to flow around the firing pin. I run our club's indoor range on Saturdays and...
