    Yes I own and use both. They both have their applications. For pits or rough bores I prefer the Lisle style brake hones. Stones are available in various grit.

    Even the "new" just released reloading manuals tend to be at least a couple of years behind newly released powders/cartridges. For new powders/cartridges you can contact the manufacturer for data or use their websites to download and print.

    Good question. I’m looking forward to the answers, as I recently picked up a Marlin 336 in 30/30. I’m thinking it has something to do with how heavy or long a bullet should be at certain velocities. But……. I could be wrong! Sam Sackett
