    My main purpose/reason for using TrailBoss is its ease of use, safely -- with accurate, repeatable results! The "guide", if you haven't seen it, is to: 1/Place the bullet you're planning to load NEXT to the empty case you are planning to us, at...

    I have done this with two notables: 1st, the lub grooves are (obviously ;) ) not as deep as before sizing; and 2ndly -- I used a Lyman 450 -- the process was significantly slower than when, say, just sizing down one to two thousandths. (But --...

    My guess is when many folks hear ".357 Magnum" they ONLY envision revolvers, generally with four inch or so barrels. Mention ".35 Remington", and the envision a beefed-up thirty-thirty '94 Winchester in that caliber. Yes -- we recently watched a...

    I have been gifted some .45 Colt cast wad-cutter bullets, and the cup-shaped seater on my Redding die cuts and distorts the bullet's top. I've "made" seating die mods in past using hot glue, but the Redding die's looked kind of deep -- I was...

    Mine is a Marlin Model 336RC in .30-30 Winchester, s/n R59xx made in 1958 w/ Tasco 3-9x scope. The rifle looked -- furniture-wise -- pretty beat, and I was not a fan of TASCO 'scopes -- but, with the gun show ending in less than an hour, I asked...

    I like your cabinet! For good or "bad", I needed a "mobile" casting station, as I do all my casting near the front of the garage -- hence, it gets wheeled to the rear when I'm not casting.

    I share your disappointment. I have mainly "old" powders, to wit Bullseye, 2400, Unique, IMR3031, 231, etc., etc., etc -- and I note most published loads nowadays use modern powders, some of which I've not heard of. And, as you aptly remarked,...

    I would, if it were me, measure the lengths of your brass, and sort by this criteria more than maker or headstamp. I view it imperative to have all cases the same length when loading this diminutive case, and having them all the same sure saves a...
