    If you shoot Black don't need a press just use the same brass in the rifle and hand press the boolit in with your finger. Clean the brass prime and charge it and press simple. Oh yes no air space :drinks:

    I have fired a lot of Lyman 9.3 mm bullets through my Marlin 38-55 using black powder. They are around .369" and shoot well patched to .381" or so. But Lyman no longer makes that mold. Now your best choice is likely a 250 grain or so slick from...

    sounds to me like your 22 shooting days are over when you deplete your current stock. $.063/rnd is what the cheap stuff brings around here and it doesn't go bang everytime you pull the trigger. Never say "Never".
