    For your immediate situation I would suggest something more appropriate to target work . Perhaps the AT 1 series .

    Harter66 replied to a thread chainsaw mill in Our Town
    We dropped coin on the HF 301 cc mill . First cuts took me an hour to reduce a 18" Pine log to 24 . The big bug is is the 9'3" cut length . I bought two 20' 333/16 angle iron and have 17'4" . It will make a first cut on 26" logs IF there aren't...

    I have a 454424 with an HP mod I think I could dabble with the nose length there and duplicate the 423 at 230 . I wish Lee made a 452-230 RNFP like the 452-255 minus a band and groove or even the 452-252 SWC . Maybe a 454421 :)

    Just a note , the 45 Colts I had would not feed RP brass whether new ammo or hand loads and it didn't matter whether they were brass or nickel either . I fussed with the polishing and all and sold the RP brass it was all sticky in the pistols anyway...

    Ask twice what you think they are worth . They will get snatched or sit for a week knock 10% off every week until you get to 10% under what you think they are worth . They will sell or they won't . Write your ad so it sounds like you're selling...

    I can't say what .1 will do with a 45-70 but it's probably real close to adding 25 gr to the bullet weight . Purely a mechanical point of view . It sounds like a throat , or rather lack of throat issue to me . That or your bullet is just...

    Got a 5.7FN die ...... That case is about right for a heavy weight 30 cal rifle . There's a lot of cutting needed to get it down to a 70 gr jacket . I'm way out of my pond here so disregard as needed .

    The bug with bushing dies is that the .264/8 bushings don't go out big enough and the 277 bushings don't small enough for a good fit for the .273 bullet . They stop at a bushing that would give me about .268 or .275 . Making an expander ball is...
