    Card wads work. I make mine with a drill press and a sharpened .357 case and whatever dense cardboard is around. Been doing that for years and about 6 moths ago, I found a Fred Cornell wad cutter for the .38 that I forgot I had. Sure makes life...

    No, think these are made from cantobtanium. Had one of our mechanical engineers call that out on his stuff all the time and I had to go out and buy it. Drove me nuts./beagle

    I've seen a small rod with a lead "knob" on one end used on those to act as a follower. Same with the old Star reloaders./beagle

    I solved that problem a long time ago. I found some bolts with the same thread as the die (1/4 X 28 TPI as I recall), cut the heads off to the approximate length as the original rod, turned them flat on the non-threaded end and kept on swaging. ...

    Bill I think you have figured out what happened, eye opening experience! About a decade ago I moved my powder magazine probably 12 feet from my scale and press, only one bottle of powder on the bench at a time for single stage, and one bottle feet...

    I think you meant to say "less" powder capacity than the whole 308 family of cartridges. 243-260-7-08 and 308 all hold more water. The parent case for the Creedmoor was the 30TC, that die would get the 308 shoulder pushed back within about .020 of...

    No matter what you do, you will not fool the nose of a buck or bull. You just need to play the wind game with them, and hope you win. There is a particular bush in front of my cabin that I pee on daily. Been trying to kill it for years. The deer...

    Take a fired case, and slip a bullet in the neck. There should be slight resistance. That is what you are looking for. You aren't fitting a bullet to the bore, you need it to fit the throat.

    Problem is, most times you won't get back your own meat. They do them in big batches. While you may have taken perfect field care of your deer, you are just as likely to get back some of Bubba's gut shot hairy mess.

    When I get FTF in a batch of primers, I always check to see if I have a broken firing pin. Since you had misfires in two firearms, I'd say they are defective.

    A good lesson for everyone, especially businesses. So many businesses don't keep hard copy records anymore. Major computer disruption, all the info is gone. Stores can't even make change anymore with electricity out.

    Always been the gun in my case and no telling how many I have popped in the last 60 years. Occasionally, I'll get one but it's normally years apart. Ray, it's a conspiracy. The liberals are sending them up there just to stir you up./beagle
