    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...

    Zip-lok baggie for mine also. Crazy Mark, before he passed spent several days scanning a #1 onto a disk and sent me a copy so I have a digital backup. I spent many, many days with that old manual when I started casting. No mentor....I was...

    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...

    I have 2,000 rounds of Winchester/WW brass (no nickel) cases sorted into 500 round packets. These are for the most part once fired, FL resized and lightly tumbled. These are straight walled cases (no canelure). PM me if interested./beagle

    If you find the dies, I think I still have PDF files on instructions for the 12 gauge set. Should be the same. If you need them, PM me./beagle

    When doing #4 Buck from a Sharpshooter mould, I just cut the sprue with the recommended side cutter pliers (sewing department, Wally World, green plastic handles). Then I throw a big batch in an old RCBS Sidwinder tumbler tub, shake in a bit of...

    I'm going with Glen on this one...especially with a big volume single cavity like the 454484. Cast as fast as you can and dump the bullet. In about ten casts the pin will heat up. Then you can slow down a bit. Throw one, wait until the sprue...

    Back when I had a machinist shooting partner, I had him make all kind of gizmos. One project was to make several blank RCBS shell holders. These fit in the slot and were flat on top. I called them "anvils". When needing to enlarge a GC, I went...

    Shot a bunch of those in 1960 in a Model 1917 Smith. Every one fired back then. They are corrosive as all get out so the warmings on cleaning are justified. Reloading of the cases resulted in many splits no doubt due to the mercuric primers. ...

    Go with the .25-20 by all means. I've shot both the .256 Win Mag in a Contender and then I have a re-barreled M1894 Marlin with a full magazine and a 1-12 twist barrel equipped with receiver, open and scope sights as I prefer. The .256 brass is a...

    Make a PM to Ben on here. He has a friend that collects Lyman 48s. For sure he has some suggestions of a source or maybe even a fix for your 48./beagle

    The way these old eyes let me shoot, I can't tell the difference but I'm well satisfied with the accuracy. At the same time we "bobtailed" this mould, we also made it a HP and that has improved accuracy in every case where I have HP'd a mould with...
