    Shot some in wooden trays not long ago from an estate sale. They fired fine. Also some old CCIs with no Zip code on the address. Bunch of the odd sized LP primers that were government made (probably through the DCM) and a whole batch of Berdan...

    Now, wait a minute here boys. I've had two Posi Prime tools and both cracked and I sent them back w/o the punches. I have a .22 slide top ammo box with punches in it of all vintages. I know I've used Posi Prime punches in my bench mounted RCBS...

    Trying to seat a 71gr bullet in a 32ACP case with a seater designed for a 32 S&W Magnum may be possible if you crank that seater all the way down and then some more after that... Buy a Lee Die Set for 32ACP. It won't break the bank and you'll...

    If the barrel is marked for caliber I'd keep it true to the barrel markings. You are just the current custodian of this fine rifle.

    It was a combination of high impact on the forcing cone and the barrel erosion from the powders used that wore out the earlier versions of the S&W guns.

    Now this one I disagree with as written too broadly and not even seeing the lesson in the text. It isn't "Don't judge", it is "judge justly and carefully being very aware of your own vulnerabilities". In another place we are positively told to...

    On the construction equipment debate, I'm pretty sure that every skid steer and excavator I've been on in the last 15 years had a hydrostatic transmission.

    I seat all of the Lee TC bullet forms with about .020" of the front drive band exposed, then set a light taper crimp. This regimen has worked with all calibers I load using the Lee TC bullet designs in autopistols.

    Ruger and Buckeye Sports (now defunct, I believe) at one time made their Blackhawks with both 32 H&R Magnum and 32/20 WCF swap cylinders. i suspect a Blackhawk so chambered could process the 32/20 HV rifle stuff without a problem. Ruger's very...

    I've pierced my fair share of primers, and I'm betting the damage done to your pin took quite a few to get tot that level. Once you get those sharp edges on a pin, it's much easier to pierce one.

    The Ruger LCR revolver series is a whole lot of gun for the money. I have only fired a 38 Special version, this right after they were released. The little rollers impressed me--great DAO trigger and quite accurate. Ruger needs to expand this line...

    Zero experience with either the 7.92 x 33 or the 7.62 x 39. I can't be much help in dealing with this class of rifle calibers. They intrigue me a bit, as does the 6.8 x 43 SPC--but not enough to spend cash on rifles or ammo. I have enough...

    That's the right way to do it. Also notice the notch on the front of the cock. If you guns don't have that, get out a file or Dremel and do it. It directs fragments away from the eyes, and helps split the fired cap for easier removal.

    Well there you go! A guy can learn something every day! And here I thought the 429422 was somewhat different in form not just HB. I wondered why 5 grs. lighter for the "same" boolit. Not sure if it is the case here but my understanding is that at...

    Use any 190 gr load staring at the low end and work up. My lyman 49 edition shows many heavier loads for 30-06. You may find looking at that data useful. Magnum cases are harder to squeeze cast accuracy out of than say a 30-40 or 308 but it can be...

Signature


The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.
