    That's really bad, there was enough parts to build a complete press. I really thought it was packed tight. I am sorry. Ken

    Top dead center is fine, others would say that cam over is better. My personal feelings are either will achieve the same results. Ken

    Blindshooter, if it's made anywhere other than the USA it should be marked as such. The Mexico / China thing is late production. If you search for them on eBay You should be able to get a feel for the early ones VS current.

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    I have to agree that it is such a great industry as far as CS. I’ve only dealt with Dillon and RCBS and have nothing but great things to say about them. I have heard good stories about the other manufacturers as well.

    Most of the issues are with the semi-auto's. I have Sako Quads, CZ 452 and Contenders in 17M2 and the Magnum Research in a Semi-Auto. Neck and shoulder cracks are more common than with the 17HMR but in either they are not a problem or a safety...

    Your friend is giving you bad advice. Rimfire's erode from the glass beads in the priming compound. With a borescope you can see it at about 20,000 rounds. On target rifles 50,000 rounds without loss is not unusual. I know of one range rental...
