    When I first started shooting NRA Highpower Service Rifle Competition with M1's and M-14's I only used GI ammo or loads with CCI #41 primers. After watching the military teams shoot 100,000's of Federal Gold Medal match I became much less...

    I've done maybe 200 or 250 trigger jobs on M1's or M-14's. Everyone one that has doubling issues was corrected by process laid out in post two. I have only shot a limited number of Federal primers in an M1. I have fired a large number of...

    Doubling is common with both the M1 and M-14 triggers that have been stoned a little to much or heavily worn. The fix is simple and only requires a small piece of sand paper. The cause is your finger bump firing the trigger. ...

    I wasn't there, but the story is that these things can and will get stuck in a bore sooner or later, even if prelubed. Getting them out may prove ugly. Why use them when a lead slug works just as well, costs less, is analog rather than digital,...

    There is an interesting story of a well known shooter ruining a friend's rifle with a set of plug gauges. Know what you are doing with them. Or be smart and use a lead slug for land diameter too.

    Take a black magic marker and color the case than insert into the chamber and rotate the case. You will be able to see were the contact is. Once you do that you can figure out why.

    I like both the heart and liver but I would not grind liver and add to hamburger. Hearts no issue but the taste and color of liver is not a good mix with hamburger in my opinion. Liver is reserved to liver and onions at my house.

    I have never used the RCBS PP swager so I don't know if this is even possible to create issues with 30 cal cases. With the Dillon 600 Super Swager on 223 cases the inside support is small enough that if you over swage the pocket you can collapse...

    It is the seller's obligation to get it to you undamaged. If he wants to charge you more for insurance, that is his prerogative, but he is responsible until it hits your doorstep (gently).

    I started casting in 1968 with Lyman 4 cavity for 45 Colt and 45/70. My most used molds are H&G 10, 8 or 6 cavity with a close second to my brass 4 cavity. The older Lyman's that I own cast on size or larger. The newer ones are on size or under. ...

    My bet is its caused by your crimp. Easy to test. Try some before and after your crimp.
