    Good Cheer, I think going to a smaller barrel diameter and throat diameter makes sense, too. I've looked into this and one detractor is how darned expensive the brass is even from Starline. Then you have to ask yourself if having a .385 diameter...

    So if you hunt pails of jello the shoulder doesn't matter. Think about what you aim to hit shooting at a deer. Are those areas homogenous and jello like? Ever hit a bone? What then? By the way Brian Pearce firmly believes the shoulder cuts in...

    Yes sir, there are times I surf the auctions and find guns I once bought for $250 15 years ago, are now worth three times that. Especially a good S&W. Murphy

    Glocks are fine guns for those that like them. I owned a Glock 17 I got on a great deal about 15 years back. I have zero idea as to what Generation it was. I shot a few rounds through it for a function check more than anything. It was then regulated...

    Just keep that model in your Saved Searches Murf. I'm sure at that price, some who were watching and wanted a second one, will seriously be thinking of putting the one they own up for auction. I've seen those bidding wars before. To be honest,...

    I don't have any Arsenal molds yet but have a pile of NOEs and mine are all within a half thousandth of what they should be which is extraordinarily good.

    rintinglen, I had a 358345 2 cavity that cast worse than yours every time I would use it. Several years back I got some replacement sprue plates from a board poster who was selling them. I think it was Red River Rick but I am not sure. I...

    You can trim your cases like that and it will work. Since case trimming is something I don't like I would either seat deeper as Badbob suggested or use a different bullet. You may well be using a lever action and want to crimp in the groove for...

    I don't ever buy 9mm brass. So much to be found out in the woods and on the range.

    Oklahoma can have some crazy weather. About the only thing one can bet on with any certainty, is from this here on out we're going to be hot and humid until mid September. In my little corner of Oklahoma, we begin to feel the heat and the misery...

    A friend of mine and I did the same several years back. There is a short section at the base that the sizer die can't reach. That would need to be turned off or the chamber made larger there to allow chambering. Also, Starline at least was making...

    It has been done on and off for the past 100 years but I also would like a .40 caliber rimmed straight case in a Colt SAA replica. To my mind a 10mm auto case length with a rim so I could roll crimp it would be perfect. Maybe name it after Boser...

    I live in a town of 7,000 (the county seat). There isn't a restaurant around that would stay open long with the prices Idaho45guy posted. We also have a local tourist trap 25 miles away. Even there, those prices would put a place out of business...
