    I would suggest taking it somewhere and getting it done. It takes a considerable air compressor to run one. I ruined one that way by not having enough capacity.

    I recall attending several funerals in one week about a year ago. Some of them much older than I, and some younger. That next week I found myself out on my back deck with a cup of coffee and just thinking about life. After a few hours, I came to the...

    They were my basic source for shot, powder, wads and shotshell primers. Gone now so I reverted to Midsouth for my powder needs. Don't know what I'll do for a shot supplier now. Oh well, I'm getting old. Maybe my stash will last me./beagle

    Wayne's right. You just have to get a customer rep that is knowledgeable enough about their stuff to know where to look for them. Last time I bought them they were $5 each but that's been a while. Lyman is a gold mine of parts but their cataloging...

    Probably the original intent. I've loaded quite a bit for both the S & W M52 and the Colt Midrange Match. The Colt will take a button nose wadcutter but the Smith is more picky. Then another reason is that one of the early mass reloaders like...

    It should be fine. You want some neck tension. I use the RCBS Cowboy dies in 38-55 also.

    CSMR, Yes, I slugged the bbl. several times, but the .312" is for CB's only. If I recall, the Hansen (now Privi) FMJ bullets were at least .311" and contained ~48gr. of an extruded powder, which I later used, much reduced, with CB's. Btw, I never...

    Best feel for priming on the press by far is the TrueLine Jr. I know, not an option for most.

    CSMR, I too have a M 39 Finn (Sako, Civil Guard cartouche) and have shot it with a variety of CB diameters. In short, at least for my rifle, .312" (and Lyman #314299) is the most accurate/groups tightest.

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.
John Taylor - "African Rifles and Cartridges"

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
