    I like to use quotes because it's the only way I know to make sure people know exactly what I'm responding too. Seems a lot of web disagreements rise from people talking passed each other without realizing it. I don't know how the OP's...

    Now me, I just don't know the answer. It often seems that nobody tells me anything. :)

    I doubt any maker produces match primers that are less consistent than common primers.

    Milling chatter occurs in the same plane that the cutter is moving. Milling chatter does not precisely occur in the long axis of a rotating mold cherry.

    Larry, you've mentioned your interesting pressure experiments several times in the past but I'm puzzled about how you did those tests. I mean, for handgun loads, did you only have a pressure test gun with short throats and tight chambered barrels...

    1hole replied to a thread Judges in Deep Theological Discussion
    If that's what "they" taught you, it was indeed crazy because it totally misses what the story is about. As an object lesson Samson was given great strength because of his obedience to God's instructions about his hair, it was not about the hair...

    Good question. I've always believed that reloads for handgun ammo might well blow a barrel off before showing any of the common incipient signs of excess pressure for a rifle. Even hot loads for most magnum revolver reloads are designed for...

    Look again at the mold close-up photos. Note that the surface ruffness is only longitudinal and that's quite odd! Making large quantities of inexpensive bullet molds with common lube grooves and driving bands are made by precisely closing the...

    1hole replied to a thread Lyman D7 scale? in Reloading Equipment
    Roger that. A lot of people say they like digitals because they settle fast/quick. I say, yeah, sure, digitals always have a number displayed but, IME, those numbers drift for 2-3 seconds (and few of them follow a powder trickler very well). My...

    I admire your tastes. IMHO, Redding's Ultramag is THE "strongest" reloading press currently available. Lee's Classic Cast is second. Both are stronger/stiffer than my old green RC2. Iron C presses are MUCH stronger than most people seem to...

    I haven't been to Pheonix since 1962 so I'm probably outdated there. Only been to Logan a couple of times but I had no real difficulties going in. It got a bit amusing once when I got to the outbound "squeeze down" at the tunnel tho. Seems...

    Perhaps. But, when a few people get poor performance from their tools and many others get good service from the same tools it makes me wonder if the problems really aren't in the tools.

    Like most other reloading tool companies, most of Lyman's scales were relabled devices made by others. Lyman's D7, M-5 and most others of any brand came from Ohaus or Webster, high quality makers of lab scales. My original Lyman/Ohaus M-5 was...

    I believe you're greatly over thinking the issue. IF I crimp at all, I always seat to crimp in the groove for any revolver reloads. Revolver cartridges usually have a much larger powder space and they always have a LOT more "freebore" than...

    Crap or no crap, and I don't care what brand of die it is or how many times it hasn't been used, it's misuse of the tool to expect anyone's decap pin to punch a new flash hole. If the decapping pin doesn't align with the flash hole but we ram it...

    Lee's carbide factory die is a tool; if you need one, get it and use it correctly. You will find it to be great for the purpose it was intended for. The carbide FCD, like any other tool, if you need one it's great but those who assume it's...

    Try letting it completely dry to the touch before sizing, your luck will probably get a lot better.

    There it is again, the recurring question, "How many presses do you have?" I have more than I need but I never answer because for the life of me I can't see how anyone else's reloading knowledge or skill would be increased by knowing that. ???

    We have several commercial case lubes and many substitutes that work very well. My first case lube (in 1965) was Lyman's STP, same as RCBS and other's STP. STP lubes well but it's the worst, messiest, nastiest and most agravating stuff...
