    Whoops! Thanks for the correction! In my case, I cut the hulls down to 2 1/2", well below any original crimp and then load black powder, wads, shot, then roll crimp. Works well and a lot of fun!

    Herter's used to make an electric "shell ironer" in several gauges. Consisted of a vertical metal post of the correct gauge, with a heating coil inside. You put your paper shell over the post and it would cause the wax to melt and redistribute...

    Started in 1971 with a Lee Loader in 38 special. Didn't take long to realize I didn't like it, so I bought a little, nondescript, used press for $9.95 and went to town. Graduated to a Rock Chucker around 1973 and swapped my commercial Luger for a...
