    I was there a few years ago. At that time, they were talking about releasing a special edition, which I would have bought. Maybe they lost their machinist. Am guessing capital is also a concern. Too bad.

    That would be Pyrex Hoppers. They work great on Dillon's. If you can find the proper size they would work great. You need 1 1/2" OD. They don't list sizes so you would have to call them.

    I spent 5 years working as a catalog writer and new products rep for a major shooting supply company. Yes, it was fun as I got to meet a lot of famous people, only on the phone. There's work out there, just think outside the shooting aspect...

    Outpost is spot on. Turning an enjoyable hobby into a career normal kills the enjoyment factor.

    I have eight of them, plastic hoppers, aluminum hoppers and brass hoppers. The stiff spring is normal as is the twisting on the shelf. Use two hands. With long stick powders it is the best there is. Maybe a little slow, but very repeatable and...

    I have had some formal meat processing training in my history. We were always taught the quicker and more blood that can be removed the better. This mirrors may personal experience. On a side note slitting the throat has never been the preferred...

    When I can afford it I prefer originals. I have hunted with an original Winchester 1873 in 44-40, Trapdoor Springfield's and 1885 Highwalls. My 1892's and 1886's are Browning copies. While the Browning's are made with better tolerances and...

    True but before I had my two Waage's I used lee pots for pre-melt. I went through three Lee's with failed heating elements. My bet is my Waage pot will still be in service long after I am gone. Feeding multiple H&G 10 cavities takes lots of lead...

    I haven’t loaded a J-word in 40 years. I think a high liberal estimation of J-words loaded in my 50 years of loading would be 250. For the amount of shooting I do I just can’t afford them.
