    I think what also needs to be considered is not only how uniform the crimps are, but are the hulls usable after the shot? Please show us some before and after pictures. My drill spec says the minimum speed is 600 RPM, but that might be to...

    I have to agree, even looking at the Slugger, I think the Load-All II is an awesome press. Since looking at the MEC Slugger... ... it would be very easy for Lee Precision to introduce a roll crimp similar to the method the Slugger uses. The...

    While shooting my SMLE scout rifle Friday, I saw a Hammerhead laying in the rubble that was generated from the 303 British bullets striking the berm. I didn't weigh it but think any loss is negligible. I can notice some rotation on the...

    Because the guy didn't have a CRS Handy Trimmer to trim the excessive length off before he ran it through the press. What I don't like about the BPI crimper, besides just a sloppy crimp, is that I did not have one reusable hull after the shot....

    The Handy Trimmer, what a great tool! Back at the start, when I started on this seasonal slug work six years ago, I wanted the BPI Spin-N-Trim. After three years of it not being in stock, I bought the Trim Dr. II. Boy, was that a...

    It is supposed to, and I've seen it completing that work in videos. I'm going to add the Creative Reloading Solutions 600 Ultimate KnockOUT. I'm just waiting on the press to see which one I need. Speaking of that, I just received a notice from...

    Thanks! The wads are Power Pistons (R12H). I would love to know what was used for both powder and the charge. Don't want to dissect any one of the remaining three. That would seem sacrilegious, all three need to be applied to hogs.

    I'm not sure. When I started this type of hunting in 1979, I bought a 1K round case of 2" Rem Express BBs, and I'm down to three shells. I've used them very judiciously, I've probably shot less than 5 to check the shot pattern, and I've never...

    Does it have to be .223? A .222 Rem would fit your purpose real good.

    .... and the reason I found Kamik was because I went hunting in a town about a 150 miles away from home, stayed one night in a motel and left Sorels in the room when I checked out. As soon as I got home I called and told the lady there what I had...

    Nope. At 35-yards, slightly high on the center of the group confined under the feeder legs. All the hogs have their heads down trying to outfeed each other and headshots are a low percentage kill at night even with rifles. The kills typically come...

    Sure can. My shotgun hog hunting is always at night, 90% of it, shooting hogs under a feeder light. In that the hogs are between the feeder legs, I've seen buckshot knock a leg out from under the feeder. I've had BB hits, but the scoot right around...

    Well, I have hogs. Given their arrival time, I will need to see them several nights in a row to make sure they are consistent. That is a late sit! It will be a 75-yard shot. Next two nights we have heavy thunderstorms forecast so will see...

    I will be refraining from slug shooting today, as, during our morning walk across the pasture, my hound peed on the "don't shoot slugs today" tree. Centerfires are okay, but slugs would be a disaster.
