    When forming using 8mm Lebel, I leave it as long as I can. When fire form, it will kind of show where to trim to. I've found I can make the cases much longer, which makes it easier to seat the boolet out farther. I did something else so I could...

    I have a few Type 77. Even have a last ditch rifle. Head space on all are large. 7.7 Arisaka can be made out of 30.06. Easy to do. PM if interested in some 30.06 brass.

    How do they look???? Round edges???? Lube grooves and base should have sharp edges. If edges are rounded, it's not filling out. Could be why the wide weight difference. Try casting at a higher temp to see if it helps. I smoke the mold cavities...

    Dated 14 June 1962 Unused in the box. They sure took lots of pride of packaging back then. It's even made to be a display. Look at the price. $13.50 I wonder what that is in 2021 dollars?????.

    I was playing with mine with cast boolets. Just could never get it to work. It would fire and cycle, but not all that accurate. I really should get back to it. My shell deflector broke off.

    I'm kind of thinking that since it's a war time rifle, the chamber would not be all that consistent. Made more loose so cases will not get stuck. On most of my military, I neck size only. Also fire form to take up head space. I modify the Lee...

    I compared it to two other cases. It sure looked bigger. So I tried fitting a primer in it. It's just a large rifle primer after all. Looks can be deceiving.

    Pictures of the two I have. RCBS and CH Both look unused. Fl sizer. CH has a date in the box, 14 June 1962. CH box is kind of cool. Because both are unused, price will not be real cheap.

    Found this 30.06 FR with a strange primer pocket. It's larger than a large primer. At first I thought it had some kind of pocket insert, but why would it???? Any ideas????

    Looking for a box of primer tools I ran across these. 800x is 3/4 full, SR4759 un-opened. Not really sure when I got them. I sometimes surprise myself with the stuff I find. Getting old, and memory not what it used to be.
