    Mark, unless you find, or come across another steel 6 point pre-crimp ring, stick with reloading 8 point crimped hulls. Don't crimp 6 point hulls with the crimp ring you have now. Your AA hulls and most target loaded factory hulls are 8 point...

    Saw CCI 209 primers on the shelf today, $7.99 per 100 but they were there. First primers I've seen in months.

    I initially went that route back in 1981 after getting my first 600 in 12 gauge. Bought the 10 gauge dies an then the 16 and swapped them out. A real PITA. Save yourself time, frustration, and money. Keep your eyes out for more 600 Jr's in those...

    Looks like a MK-5. 600 Jr. in 12 gauge. Talk to the people at MEC. They have parts that should fit. Should be marking on the red base plate. Be sure to download the manual that's free online. It'll help identify missing parts by name and parts...

    Sweet's 7.62 Solvent is what I use for serious copper fouling. Yes, plug the gas port and remove the bolt so you can flush the solvent out after cleaning. Be sure to follow the directions, it should not be left in the bore for long periods of time!

    Dad was an avid Bullseye shooter for decades and had a ton of state trophies to show for it. His favorite bullet was the Lyman 452488. Works very well in .45 Colt revolvers too.

    Why are you aiming for Linotype hardness? Knowing the purpose of these boolits would be helpful to know. More Antimony = Larger boolits as you surmised, and also much more difficulty sizing them. BHN 21 is something I "might" use for rifle alloy....

    It goes back to what's been said several times, most who get bit were doing something dumb. Far be it from me to rain on their parade and I respect their freedom to worship how they please, but I do remember that scripture tells us not to put God...

    You're a lot more likely to get laid low by a tick bite than a snake bite. Not sure about Indiana, but if Kansas is an indicator of the midwest, snakes really aren't a problem. Where I grew up in the S.C. low country, or west Texas where I spent...

    There's no snake in North America that can bite through leather. And 762 shooter is right, you might as well just stay in the house 24/7 if you're that timid, you might get struck by lightning or something. Can't be too careful, after all.
