    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...

    Reading the wonderful posts, I have a question. To wit, I wash and rewash all new moulds with Dawn detergent in warm water, scrubbing with a toothbrush, followed by copious water rinsing. They then get handles attached and placed on my G.E....

    I had the Lyman brand mould guides on both of my Mold-Master Lyman bottom-pour pots, using them with no negatives. Two things happened, though, to wit I gained a few more candles on my birthday cakes, and, the Lymans were updated to a RCBS Pro-Melt...

    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...

    My review: Having a large bucket of .44 S&W Special cast bullets to load, I purchased one of these. (Shipping, packing, etc. was wonderfully quick!) I have three notes after loading ~300 cases: 1/ It indeed works as I had hoped, doing a...

    In very much the same "boat" as you are now in, the "smart" move at the time was to hire a "Nanny for Granny" person who would come in daily, Monday thru Fridays, and help mom; do light housework; prepare meals; and, provide both company and ability...

    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...

    The wife of a close friend was putting air in one of her low auto's tires, and the portable air tank fragmented! The shrapnel from this tank took the meat -- e.g, skin, muscles, and all - from her wrist to elbow on her left arm. She was most...

    Purchase question: This sounds like a "plus" -- EXCEPT, for me, I need keep those two Allen screws your springs replace quite tight, to keep powder measure in place, op rod in line, and all in all, less "wobbly". I'd think of the springs were heavy...

    The sling (#6) so very much resembles the one which came on an H&R Reising WWII vintage Model 65 .22 caliber machine gun trainer rifle. There's absolutely no guarantee that mine was the issued/original sling on my Reising -- but, for what it's...

    Not certain vis the DW Model 13, but, for their 15 series you can put barrel/shroud combos on the frame from two inch to 15 inch barrels. And, from what I hear, they are inherently accurate firearms. A fellow at range has a DW case, their "Pistol...

    Just as a possible alternative... When indoor (gunpowder-propelled) shooting became verboten at a club I belong to, the alternative was to switch to -- for winter shooting -- PCP air rifles. My choice, which I *do* regret maybe 2% or 3% ;), was to...

    For my RELOADING presses, I spray/clean rams with G96 on an old piece of cotton toweling. The caps' was intentional, as maybe 15 years ago it dawned on me that 90%+ of all dirt came from the decapping process. I picked up an old Pacific single...

    I bought my RL550b in October of 1991 -- God knows how many times I operated the handle. Well, today I had perhaps my 2nd or 3rd failure in 27 years -- apparently the cast aluminum piece which hold the roller the powder measure gets actuated by...

    I have a couple Air Arms (made in Czechoslovakia) PCPs, one each in .177 and .22. On the latter -- an S200 Hunter -- I have a Leapers AO scope from Pyramid Air, with no regrets. Pyramid now lists refurbished ones for $189.99, which may very well...

    I cannot come up with "one firearm does all" to provide an answer to your query. At clubs I've belonged to, fellows will buy a .44 Rem Mag, and load it with .38 S&W Special mid-range comparable loads. "Huh? Why not just buy a .38?", generally...
