    Many years ago, someone wrote a book titled "Did a monkey invent the monkey wrench???" He got into some trouble for the title. It was changed to something else. What is wrong with people??? What happened to "Sticks and stones may break my bones,...

    So where did the term "Monkey Wrench" come from???? The World English Dictionary gives a nautical definition for monkey, as a modifier "denoting a small light structure or piece of equipment contrived to suit an immediate purpose: a monkey foresail...

    I normally do the "o-ring" thing on first firing, to set the head space. Then neck size only. Got the Lee dies set to help form the dies. It's a three dies set. Full length, seater, expander, shell holder.

    Who makes a 24ga shell holder???? I've checked Lee, RCBS. According to Buffalo Arms it's the same as a 577 shell holder. I have the one from Lee.

    The 20ga body is around .698, the 24ga is around .661, at the base. So the 20ga is bigger. Not a shot gunner, so don't know much about them. Just going by what I can find on the web.

    So I get some 24ga brass, Magtech, and noticed the rim is kind of small. Looking at the dimensions of other shotgun brass, I noticed that the 20ga rim size is the same as the MH case. Has anyone tried making MH case out of 20ga instead of 24ga...

    I sent them an email, and got a reply. I made a mistake with the rim size. Was looking at the 20ga diagram instead of the 24ga. The 24ga is suppose to be .728. Still much larger than the Magtech .719 I got. Guess I'll just try the shell holder...

    I found the problem. Posted in the conversion forum. The rim on the Magtec shells I got are small. They are suppose to be .757, but are .719. Uggggggg The 577 450 shell holder might work, but it's really sloppy. What a PITA.

    I thought "The Thing" remake was much better than the first one. I like the first one, but the FX made the second spooky. Another was "Cape Fear". Robert Mitchum and Robert De Nero both made you hate them.

    Anyone noticed that the 24ga brass Magtech shells have a smaller rim diameter???? I got a Lee die set and the shell holder barely catches the rim. It's suppose to be .757, but is .719. I've been searching for a shell holder that would fit better....

    Pictures of the die set I have. These look unused. Old style in the cardboard box.

    I got the Lee die set for the 577 450 MH. Got some 24ga shells from Magtec. The shell holder that came with the dies is not a great fit. Seems to loose. Any idea what shell holder would fit better????
