    I once squashed so .360 RB out to 458 and loaded them like a 250ish WC , 4 in a Colts case for 600 fps . That out of a 7.5" Ruger . A stacked wad and something similar in your 444 case should due nicely . Hard to fight when you can't breathe . ...

    Well based on 757 and 25-06' you'll need the top of the Unique loads to get little groups . I ain't scared I cast 22,25,26,27, and 28 cal and have had good results with all of them . In 27 cal I run a 6.8 SPCII with the NOE 279-124 at 130...

    Welcome . A qualifier my 45 Raptor was actually cut with a 45 ACP reamer . I just necked up 1x 308 . 8mm , 9mm/35 cal , anneal , and up to .451 in the 460 dies . Back the flair die up about 3 turns as the brass is .2-.3" too long . Trim them...

    A friend had a SS Rossi M92 38/357 all of the 38s I tried fed like water through a hose just as fast as I could run it . I didn't try a WC . 357 however required a sideways feed and wiggle it acted like it was hanging the case mouth on a chamber...

    With the above and compared to an example I had I would agree with the others . The one I had would have likely been ok to shoot with 7.9257J ammo as the Metford type rifling groove was .318 . I ended up with a 8mm Mauser neck die and an...

    Harter66 replied to a thread Dies 7 mm in Helping Hands
    I'm not in need but it might be helpful to specify 7mm/757/Mauser , 7mm Rem express or 7mm RM . After many years I feel sure it would be for an RM buy wouldn't be surprised if it were a 7mm Mauser set .

    I believe #1 is more likely to be antimony wash .

    I can't say in either case ........ I don't recall the Savage barrel having any markings and the gas gun I'd have to take apart to look . I want to say the 6.847 was Black Hole Weaponry , the 5R rifling isn't an exclusive to one maker . The...

    Been here . I've formed a lot of tight bolt brass that was freely extracted . It kind of depends on where it's tight . As long as it's not the neck it's good to go . The Savage bolt is in fact screwed on and fitted via the oval with flats key...

    When in doubt wash it out . I know you have had it apart , but Mom had a 1917 Colts I had apart and tinkered at that just seemed to grow dirt in everything that moved . I gave up an put it in a cake pan with a gallon of GI CLP with the grips off...

    The NOE 279-124 is designed specifically for the 6.8 SPCII . The SPCII is the same but without the SAAMI throat and leade , it's slightly longer and shallower taper . Which is more in line with the original pre Rem SAAMI drawing . Barrels are...

    I hope my bench doesn't get the note about special brass and bad groups w/o checks . Read the paper thread in BP paper patch ......like 3x because the first time about 5% is going to stick and you'll be completely over loaded . The 45-70...

    Seems to me swaging something like PPC or X39 clan would be easier in a steel die . I've done a little bit of 6.5x50 Japanese from 243 down to a semi rimmed case . A little wet lube , a half stroke , relube , full length , and trim the head...
