    I have never used a LnL as I bought a Dillon 550b before the LnL existed. The primer system may not be as good as the 650, don't have a 650 so can't say, but it works almost flawless. It flips one out of the primer cup about 1 in 1000. Spilled...

    I use normal FL dies but set the sizer to stop just short of touching the shoulder and haven't had any problems with over expansion at the base on my 300 H&H. I use that method for all of my bottleneck cases. I believe over pressure is what...

    Just off the top of my head as a start; the US Navy's Grumman TBF Avenger comes to mind - it had one 50BMG and Two .30 machine guns (one facing forward and one facing rearward).

    My wife provided me my first large supply of lead back in 1989. I had accumulated a little at a time back in those days - just ahead of what I was shooting it seemed; 2/3 of a 5 gallon bucket was the most I had on hand back then. When I got home...

    Getting an electric vehicle to perform is easy, keeping it charged and keeping things cool while pumping thousands of amps in or out of the batteries and the time it takes to charge are real problems. Think of a semi pulling the grapevine hauling...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread Ammo on the Shelves? in Our Town
    Murdochs had quite a few .223's and 7.62x51 on the shelves a few days ago. the 223's were about $15 per box of 20 and the 7.62x51 was about $28 for box of 20. Limit of two boxes if I remember. They are looking awful pricey to me. I swage my own...

    I have done some for a 7.62x54. I just drilled for the 209 then counter sunk with an end mill. I don't remember the sizes but I did it on a mini lathe which makes the depth for the 209 rim easy. I have shot normal cast boolit loads but not factory...

    Well, that's even higher than I thought they would be. I won't be getting one at that price.

    Put your wad cutters in backwards and you can load them flush with the end of the case and crimp if you want.

    I had a 3/4 jack 1/4 fox terrier and although it loved to hunt rabbits it had no nose for smelling them. I saw ir run past a standing arctic hare not tow feet away. It wasn't the pet we hoped for as it would never sit still. We next got a rat...

    I taught myself to reload and to cast boolits as I didn't know anyone that loaded or cast. Years later I found this site and learned how to do it right.

    What are the flat iron pieces with machined notches at the bottom of picture #2 for? I can see the punch elongating the formed tube/s by driving through series of dies to reduce diameter and form jacket in steps. But I am not tracking that the...

    The Lee Expander dies are basically two different "Cone Angles". The slim expander will still dramatically expand the Mouth area of the 5.7 case - compared to the area where the existing neck area meets the body of the 5.7 Case. ...
