    In the midst of a loading session with my RL550b press, the shell holder could not be turned/advanced. "Huh?" It turns out I tried to put a (large pistol) primer in a (.44 S&W Special) case which already had one in it. I did not now if I had put...

    My thoughts include the 2nd Amendment does guarantee our right; ***BUT*** our government appears to have the right to regulate. Note the 1934 NFA; the 1968 GCA; and myriad of additional -- e.g., the Bump- ban recently enacted. More frightening to...

    I've had very similar, but my lead chunks were in plastic "sheet rock mud" buckets, so heating them was not doable. Instead, I fired up the smelting pot (1/2 Freon tank from DavyCrockett on this site)), grabbing each piece with a set of tongs which...
