    I've been an RCBS fan from the beginning 40+ years ago. Following the RCBS line, Redding has a great reputation as well. You didn't mention if you were open to carbide or steel. If it's carbide, I'd chase down a set of Dillon dies (not easily done...

    Murphy replied to a thread casting season is upon us in Our Town
    I honestly don't think I've ever cast based on what time of the year it was. Either I need to cast some, or I don't. I guess it varies for a lot of us and what region of the country we live in. I'm not that far geographically located from Lightman...

    The Grand 357 Magnum. Just my 2˘ worth of input. For my use, a 125 Grain JHP, a 150-158 Grain cast boolit, and a heavy Keith boolit out of a 4-6" barrel should handle all my needs at normal velocities for those weights. If it won't handle the...

    Hello Robert, I'm going with civilian driven. This shortage has been THE wild one of the ones I've endured over the decades. New gun owners buying for the first time, along with all the ammunition they could afford, and continuously adding to...

    Nice!! I tried to paper patch with mine, but found I had some excessive headspace. I switched to a regular lubed cast boolit using Unique. I found some “large” brass supposedly shot in a machine gun. I never fully resized it and only use a Lee...

    As I stated in my post above, I didn't envy your position one bit. Darned if you do, darned if you don't. I kind of expected you would be seeing what you saw today. It seems when it comes to ammunition these days, buying and selling it I equate to...

    jonp, I don't envy your situation. I will say it's nice of you to sell your excess ammunition. And, at the same time trying to be reasonable and fair in regarding it's price. If you set the prices low, you'll be sold out in short order would be...

    Mighty fine looking holster's firebyprolong, especially if you haven't made any in the past 10 years. The Tom Threepersons and the S&W styled (I've forgotten that particular model they offered) are two of my favorites. Both are excellent designs....
