    The one Lee put in their “Precision Loader” was probably the best of the genre, and it was a lot simpler to use. Froggie

    AL; I had to smile reading your posts above. They so nearly parallel my preferences that they bring a smile on my face. I lusted after a K-32 for years. I was always behind the price curve. Smith made so few, that the ones on the market were...

    Iím still not sure about the absolute volume the OP is going to be loading, but we used a 550B to load for a moderate amount of PPC (38 wc and swc) and 45 swc for a few Bullseye events with perfect satisfaction. It ISpossible to mis-seat primers or...

    Thanks Ken! I was all set to declare there was no such thing since I had never seen or heard of such a beast. Do you have a time frame for when they were made/available? Even that box label looks a little different from other Lyman era labels I’m...

    OK, four pages of dancing around looking for a way to tell someone unwilling and unable to deal with the danger she perceives as possible that she shouldn't go there... so if she really wants to go, a Humvee with a gun tub mounting a Ma Deuce is...

    I’m a little depressed with what has happened to Herters press prices. :coffeecom Around here they used to be hard to give away because they used non-standard shell holders and weren’t painted green or orange. Now they’re “collectible” and the...

    I hate to sound so negative, but finding a real gunsmith is a very great discovery around here, while finding somebody hanging out a shingle who knows considerably less about gunsmithing than I do is a frequent occurrence around here. :( Recently a...

    I find it hard to believe that a gunsmith would have trouble finding enough work to stay as busy as he wants. Maybe if he's just a parts changer who graduated from some 16 week mail order school, but not if he's a real gunsmith. If you don't have...

    :coffeecom Like everyone else here I have my own totally biased opinion, so here goes... First, I like 38 Spl +P loads for a J-frame. I have some of the old blue colored nickel cased FBI loads from back in the '70s and '80s and they serve as my...

    I've bought both new and used reloading equipment from both e-Bay and (for longer) at gun shows. Usually I'll look around on both and establish my own "market value" and try to stay as far under it as possible. One big advantage of this strategy is...

    Winchester used the high wall receiver for about any caliber if a #3 or larger barrel was ordered. I've owned a high wall factory chambered in 22 Long (not even LR!) and at my schuetzen match this past weekend a friend showed up with a "deluxe...
