    I know nothing of their M1 Carbines. I have seen some of their work on M1 Garands and M1A's. They did a good job with those.

    I have both and I much prefer the 686's. That being said most of my S&W's are pre-1993. I do own several of ECM barreled Smiths and I have no issues with them for cast. With the factory stock Ruger or S&W triggers its luck of the draw. Once you...

    I would recommend finding a buddy that has one and use it before you purchase. Some people love these presses and some people not so much. I have two. Got my first in the early 80's. I am strongly in the "not so much" camp. I have a bunch of...

    Save yourself the aggravation and buy the bullets. By the time you factor all the steps involved in making your own bullets, plus the costs for tooling, the 12K bullets you intend on buying would be a deal. The time saved by not swaging will be...

    Not a rumor. Pulled maybe 10K of M118 173 gr FMJ's for Mexican Match. Break the bullet seal and pulling was noticeably easier when using the Forster Superfast (Possum Type) Bullet Puller https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1012693079 ...

    Then my 1050's are "perfect". I have two. One for large primers and one for small so switching between large and small is a matter of using a different 1050. I have a vacuum and compressed air at each machine. I do a quick clean before use. ...

    A "perfect" anything doesn't exist. I do own items that are close to perfect for a specific application, however, when that application changes those items may become far less than "perfect". Reloading is similar to machining is the sense that the...
