    I agree, the one exception is Back powder loaded brass. It gets cleaned asap, and I often have a jug of soapy water at the range to drop them in. Then into the ceramic beads with water and soap. From there to the Lizzard Litter to dry/polish.

    If they won't cooperate, I wonder how defaulting on the loan and letting them repossess it work? ITtwouldn't help her credit rating at all, but it would get rid of it.

    When I started reloading for my Dad's 30-30 we had no concept of cleaning brass. That brass must have gone through a dozen loadings and never was cleaned.

    You guys are missing one piece of information. Inheritance is the one exception to all the transfer laws. All he has to do is transport the gun as if it has always been his. As far as the law is concerned, that is the situation. This is only...

    Yep on the Hornady One Shot lubricant. Some seem to have issues with it but I love it. Only time I came close to having an issue is if I don't let it dry long enough. I know I have sized well over 100K with it.

    They only cataloged 357 and 44. While it's possible they did a special order run I have never heard of it and I have followed them fairly closely. My bet its he is mistaken or it's a rebarrel. Everyone of these that I have seen is marked...

    The 45 Colt is one of the cartridges that benefits from the older steel dies. The 45 Colt was around 50 years before SAAMI. The end result is a fairly significant mismatch between chamber and case specs. The older steel dies match the taper in...

    Not sure what all you did for upgrades but the thrust bearing and detent ball can be had for $12.95 here and they are worth the money. http://hitfactorshooting.com/products/products.html

    That's like when you first start blacksmithing. It doesn't take a person long to look at hot metal when they pick it up.

    I suspect the OP was expecting the mold to drop the exact weight it is specified for. They don't, or are very rare if they do.

    The standard Government model has 5" barrel, the Commander has 4 1/4" barrel and the Officer Model is 3 1/2". The Officer model slide will fit to your Commander frame without issue. The Officer models tend to be a little more finicky for ammo. I...

    Both of mine shoot well, one rifled, one smoothbore. At shoots in this area, you are only allowed to load one cylinder at a time in competitions due to safety factors. That is thanks to a doofus who managed to shoot himself in the shoulder a few...

    I had the same problem with Unique in my 32-20. I checked my five measures and it bridged in all of them. I bought an old Belding and Mull off eBay years ago and have used that for all my rifle loading since. As long as I pay attention to the...

    Actually I remember reading that the Mauser Brothers did the research and concluded that the 9x57 case was the most effecient BP case, just before the advent of smokeless. I have a 9.3x57 - and a boolit mold, and a chronograph. Oh well, another...

    Consider also your platform. Very different loading for a semiauto than for a Contender barrel. For a semiauto you have minimum of functioning the slide and on the other end you want to avoid battering your frame. Changing springs can counter...

    It has been easy to fly with a gun, simply call TSA at the airport well ahead of time, find out the current rules, and follow them. They are set up to do exactly this. It is not the airline, it is the TSA that handles this.
