    I guess I will have to shorten and form .223 like you have said. But brass is not easy to get where I live. Everyone is picking their brass now.

    That's what I started using works great for me as well. Same stuff as the Dillon spray lube but way easier on the wallet.

    I would love some pictures of your firearms. I really enjoy looking at the older items and the history they went through.

    What do you guys like to shoot at indoor ranges out of the nasty weather? Outdoor ranges with longer lanes and steel targets maybe? Or just out in the field down the road where there are no range officers and you shoot what you brought? Or is...

    I enjoy the semi auto pistol's more than the revolvers mostly because my revolver's have a very heavy trigger pull. I don't plan on doing a trigger job on them to lighten the pull any time soon. I also have trained almost exclusively with semi auto...

    I am glad to hear the life of primers is that long. I tried to keep about 2-5 years worth of primers. But after the dust settles I will increase that amount out farther.

    Somehow I got the only lee 4-20 pot that does not leak so mine starts to build up in the nozzle then the flow gets slower. That is when I have problems with mold fill out. I would try faster flow as well check your temperature like the other guys...

    monkey wrangler replied to a thread Primers !!! in Cast Boolits
    I guess what does everyone consider a normal amount of primers to keep on hand...that isn’t considered hoarding? I’m going to try to always keep at minimum of least 2k of everything I load for form now on. I would say a normal supply of primers...

    We used to pull a bullet from a 22 shell, and spill a small trail of powder leading to the primed case, and light it with a bic lighter. They would go a long way down the school hallway. Teachers made us quit that stunt I did that as kid too...

    The list would be too long to write out, so I will just put the top one out there. Thompson sub machine gun in full auto. That would keep me busy reloading for sure.
