    What both of these guys said. Actually, I would place greater emphasis on what rking22 said. Make sure you have enough flare on the case mouth. As for seating and crimping separately, maybe or maybe not. Many calibers I do both in 1 step with...

    Well, I think the general consensus is that this is likely a USPS problem and not a scammer, but anything is possible. I have contacted the seller, he insists he did ship it and is working with his local PO on that end. Being the trusting fool I...

    I recently won a MEC Grabber press on Ebay. I paid for it, and within a day it was showing as shipped. Here is my problem. It was shipped on July 20th from Rochester IL. USPS tracking showed it in Pawnee IL on July 21st. That's it. The...

    Back in late June I posted that I finally gave in to those unnatural urges and bought a Colt. For those of you that missed it, it was an old model Trooper (aka poor man's Python) and here it is Well, I've been playing with it quite a bit and...

    The one primer detonation I had in my entire 35+ years of reloading was on a shotshell press. A piece of spilled shot rolled into the little hole that the new primer drops into, on top of the seating punch.

    Well, you don't mention problems in .223/5.56, so I assume your Lee dies are doing the job, and I assume your Lee dies are standard, not small base? If this is all correct, I'd go with the standard ones. I use the standard X dies in .223 and...

    OK here are pictures of the four I've made. I'm frugal in nature, and I can't see buying something if I can make it cheaply and effectively myself. Why a brass catcher? Well part of it is just that the older I get, I get sick up bending over and...

    If I get time I'll snap some pics tomorrow. I made a glove type that goes on my shooting hand, as well as three for rifles, one free standing on the bench and two that clamp/hook onto the rifle. One thing about the glove one for pistols; I will...

    Patrick L replied to a thread Pumps are fun! in Rimfire Area
    I wanted a Remington 572 in the worst way, which is not surprising since I have 4 870s and an old 760. Seemed like I just needed one. Turned out to be a disappointment. Was not particularly accurate, horrible trigger, and suffered from a lot of...
