    funny id think that if anything ccis would give more trouble because they tend to be a bit bigger. I can have some cases that were swadged a bit to much that Winchester primers will about fall out of but ccis and feds seat just fine. My two lock and...

    My mistake I see now you are using a single stage and that would be pretty easy to see happening.

    ive done 10s of thousands of 556s cases on my lnl with a Dillon trimmer mounted on it. Used to hook a vacuum up to it as it has an attachment for one. the noise bothered me so I quit using it. Ive had that press and the floor under it covered in...

    square deals are fast once you get some time behind them. I once was at my buddys and he and I were loading. he was loading 38s on his 650 and I was loading 45acps on one of his SD's We loaded for an hour. Between the shorter stroke of the square...

    I don't size bullets that haven't cooled. If you size a bullet to 430 and its still hot its going to end up smaller when it cools. personaly ive never had a problem with sizing pc bullets. as a matter of fact I do it all on an upside down lee hand...

    Looks good. I did the same with a ham off a 150 lb sow once and it turned out kind of dry and stringy compared to store bought hams. Was told by one guy that with leaner wild pigs its best to cold smoke them for a day then bring them to temp. He...

    I guess to theres the mentality that you scrimp and go without for 40 years so you have money for 20 and retire at 65 and drop dead with money in the bank or in some cases before you even retire. I fall somewhere in the middle. I had new trucks...

    heres my take on it. snub nose revolvers are right in your face arms reach self defense guns. there already on the underpowered side of stopping someone. Me id take a heavy flat point bullet like a wfn or even a full wad cutter that I know is going...

    I have two all time favorite 44 spec molds. the 429215 lyman and the rcbs 240 swcgc. Both do need gas checks though but what ive found in all my 44 specs and magnums is that if neither of those two bullets give you excellent accuracy then bring it...

    Like I said before the human digestive system isn't compatible with blood. Prime rib (or what I call raw roast) is even worse. If I eat a rare steak or even medium rare im bound up for a couple days. I like my venison and beef cooked so there just...

    wonder if you could use a pistol buffer tube on the rifle and then weld a longer buffer on the bottom of the pistol buffer and put your stock on the lower tube. You wouldn't be able to retract it all the way in or possibly not at all but the only...
