    Depends on the nose ogive of the bullet and how far out seated into the case. There are bore riding bullets that will fit into the leading bore cuts and others like the 457124 and 457125 with fat ogives that are SAMMI overall length (OAL) dependent...

    Any primer will ignite if it is struck Hard and Fast. So slow down jerking and hammering the press arm when reloading.

    The 17 HMR was first than the 17 Mach 2 than the 17 WSM. I have the 17 Mach 2 and the 17 HMR. I shoot the 17 HMR the most. I am heading out of state tomorrow to shoot prairie dogs. The 17 HMR is awesome for under 175 yards on PD's on a claim...

    As stated by some the RB does have AOL issues with longer cartridges. This is strictly from memory and I am not a RB guy but I believe 45-90 is about the limits without having to modify the hammer nose. ...

    Back in the mid 70's when I was doing 357 Herrett all I had was a Lyman Universal Trimmer. With normal pressure it took a month of Sundays to cut them to length. I discovered if you really jammed the cutters in each tooth would cut a nice curl and...

    Not really. It just means the extractor is long enough to hold the case secure enough to fire. It fairly common for the 10mm crowd to shoot 40 S&W in their guns https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/40-in-a-10mm-glock/

    Primers normally don't denotate with a slow compression. I have tested this several times by squeezing them flat in a machine vise. My guess is the crimp held the primer until enough pressure was applied and it popped in with sufficient force and...

    Of the 310 molds of many different brands in inventory, 31 are RCBS and Saeco's. Yes, they cast nicely but I have determined that the Paul Jones, Hoch and Accurate molds cast better than any other brands, including Ideals, I have cast for calibers...

    For starters, I reload smokeless and black powder for calibers from 22 LR up to 50-70 plus several metrics. The only caliber die that that will reload the 44-40 better than a Lee is a RCBS. My die inventory of 55, of all the brands that I have no...

    That's the down side to being color blind. Shot a lot of the m855 but I've never seen the M855A1. Thanks for the correction.
