    You don't tell us much. What guns what caliber for starters. There are NUMEROUS threads covering the 45 ACP 1911 feeding there is a current thread where the OP PC'd boolits and had the same issues, his issue was solved by throating the barrel...

    My response was to JimB's post: Also, Sizing to the same diameter as throats leaves you no "wiggle" room for boolits that grow .0002" ~ .0004" while age hardening as they sit until they are used. It also leaves no room for any out of...

    What’s the outside diameter of the Lee Case Feeder tubes? Hoping they are 5/8” (0.625”) to use on my RCBS green machine. Checking before I order those or bulk polycarbonate tube

    This is still incorrect. Size to fit THE THROATS. Sizing smaller than the cylinder throats, i.e. randomly picking .452" and sizing to that dimension will insure the fact that you have leading and poor groups *IF* in fact your throats are .454." ...

    I like how the 3rd gen manual clearly states one should read and read again the manual to understand the complexity of the machine, and that any previous reloading experience doesn’t matter. I am no engineer, but I have a good understanding in...

    Well, can't argue with those groups for one, and for two, you are better off than most getting ANY bit of a .452" proud of the case mouth to plunk with the RO barrels. Jerry Keefer built the 9mm that won jeez how many matches? .100" parallel...

    Don’t throw hate towards it! I have been intrigued by these little guys and know of all the lost patience and anger towards them. This one came up locally and picked it up near Devils Tower Wyoming. Missing the poor design primer tray, case tubes...

    In need of the top and bottom of the case feeder for a RCBS Green Machine. (Case feeder index wheel) I have one but it pretty worn. Just got off the phone with RCBS Tech and they no longer have the wheels or tubes.

    DougGuy replied to a thread 1911 trouble feeding in Cast Boolits
    This would make for a very fair comparison of throated vs. non throated. If you read what I wrote about the function of freebore as an alignment tool this facilitates a consistent engagement in the rifling which the abrupt entry into the rifling of...

    I replied in your other thread that you may benefit from a pound cast of your chamber and throat to get accurate measurements of what would be your maximum diameter boolit you could use, this would need to come before diving much deeper into what...

    It may benefit you to do a pound cast of the chamber and throat, this would tell you the maximum diameter boolit you could use without interference, your rifle is showing you that accuracy could be improved considerably by fitting the boolit to the...

    Without milling the frame window and increasing the OD of the cylinder, you are only gaining very little by moving the bolt notch between chambers since the outer wall thickness will be the same.

    These are notoriously tight and it is the norm for them to be rather egged. They respond quite well to honing throats, accuracy is tweaked very noticeably afterwards. Most of what comes into the shop goes out at .3125" for use with .312" boolits...

    I had to learn the hard way that using asterisks or a random string of characters to hide a word was skirting the word filter! It was not an attempt by me to get around the word filter, as in trying to trick it, but the board sorta views it in that...

    This one has a basic worm drive gear box and the mechanics used pulleys and steel cable. Based on the entire unit, I am pretty sure it will reverse, otherwise it would only raise or lower the chair. The motor label has no other info, and looks to...

    Never heard so much squabbling over something that doesn't even enter the picture. *IF* you use a .356" in 9mm, the FCD WILL NOT size it down in the case. .357" it depends on the individual FCD as there are variances, they are not all created...

    I tried googling the numbers, but had no luck. Also, the mystery box had no info other than “this side up” on one side. Here is the label.
