    Light strikes that fire on the second hit are the classic symptom of primers not fully seated into the primer pocket . Happens with your reloads right ! The answer is to seat each primer all the way into the bottom of the pocket ... push them in...

    What I find funny is you are up in Alberton , Mt. and I'm down South in Louisiana ... We have the same (or similar) bugs and have for my whole life known them as "Stink Bugs" ... Seems like them things live everywhere throughout North America ....

    Very clever ! I was rushing it, between making j-word cartridges. As I painted the bands and base, I got the idea to stick the gas check on, while pc was still wet, and they all slipped right on. Baked them standing up, then sized/ crimped. They...

    Snags still very legal. I use one almost every single striped bass / bluefish trip. It’s what you do. You snag bunker ( menhaden, pogy) out of a tight pod, to either swim live line , or cut up to “chunk” for stripers and blues. I fish...

    Reluctantly seeing your point… loaded up a bunch of the Hog Tooth 175s , and a bunch of the 150 BTSPs. He came so very close to busting me, once already, so I’m fixing to go that route. I have never loaded 30-06 rifle , and the closest thing to...

    Brass doesn't last forever ... load them long enough and they eventually let go . Most crack at the mouth from crimping but I've had it seperate at the factory cannelure on the body , about half way down , at times I had some split length ways on...

    I don't have either mould ... only the drawings to look at that aren't dimensioned or to scale . They appear quite similar . The Lyman #356402 appears to have a slightly more pronounced, and slightly wider , front driving band ... And the grease...

    I thank you sir, I am getting along those lines, now. I didn’t order a custom one, as I have ordered one in the past, and found it took a long time to get. I found a .285 with Amazon Prime , that I plan to lap.

    The C312-155 ? The one folks are using for 300 BO? Mine is dropping .307 forward of the drive bands. I just set up several un coated 170-Fs and 180-Rs, like Larry and others suggested. I set the boolits at various depths, to find the longest one,...

    I google searched for this mold, and am not finding one for sale. None of the Lee molds seem similar, in any way. Can anyone recommend AN AVAILABLE mold, from any of the other manufacturers? Other Lyman molds? NOE , Accurate, MP etc?
