    I don't gas check my 9mm but size them for the barrel and PC them. I run them at book levels for similar weight jacketed bullets with no leading problems. On the 308's I haven't played with that enough to have a opinion.

    If you get the brass one be sure to season it by thoroughly cleaning with Dawn dish soap and cycling it by heating it to 400 degrees and let cool 4 times. This will add the patina so the boolits don't stick. If it has pins then you need to keep your...

    Your lost now, the bug has you and it will only get worse. Before long you will have more molds in sizes you don't have guns for, then it's dies, then a shell holder and finally brass. Then you will need a 45-70 1874 Sharps so you can use them and...

    I use one too. The bottles have what looks like a tire valve on one side near the screw stem. It is a bleeder valve that works opposite of a tire valve. You pull to let air out instead of push. So when filling use a small forceps to pill on it to...
