    Just about any flat top punch should work. I bought a set of flat punches from Accurate, they suit the vast majority of my needs as most of my boolits are FN profiles.

    Baby steps...They've been slowly but steadily adding to their lineup. They have come a long way in the last several years, and I'm sure if we keep letting them know what we want/need they will add stuff IF the demand is there.

    In the H.P. White test Keith used a 429421 cast of 16-1 alloy at 250 gr, sized .429, lubed with Lyman Banana lube loaded over 22 gr Hercules 2400. He does not state (that I could find) what the cases and primers used were but I suspect the cases...

    Is it the sprue plate or is it the top of the mold? I've run across several Lyman molds that had warn where the sprue connected to the top of the mold (from lack of lubrication and tightening too tight), the only fix was to have a few thousanths...

    Looks like you got a good one. I'm very lucky to have got in on the Greek returns several years back. I got a Collector Grade, a Correct grade, and two service grades. All of them are HRA's. This wasn't my choice, just luck of the draw (except the...

    My go to powder is Leverevolution. It will give top velocity and accuracy with lower pressures than many other powders. Jacketed or cast, this stuff really shines in the 30-30. 3031 is a time proven performer, but LVR is hands down my favorite.

    They do it's called the 17 Mach 2 but it didn't sell well and the gun manufactures made the chambers too loose in the semi-auto's so neck and case splits are fairly common. I have several and really like them but I purchased 8K of ammo at a...

    Here lies your problem/s as I see it. Primers falling out = Might be time to toss the brass due to enlarged primers pockets. You could try a different brand of primer to see if they fit tighter. Range pickup brass = There's usually a reason it's...

    While not a 6.5 Swede, Iv'e been using that mould with good results in a 6.5 Bullberry Contender barrel with decent results. This round is based on the 30-30 Win, shortened and necked down. It casts a nice boolit for me, as do all my RCBS molds. The...
