    I have been checking these out, and wondered if anyone here has used one for any caliber. If they work as advertised, I would get one for each caliber eventually. It's a good price, they're made of brass so they shouldn't harm barrel steel.

    I use Lee molds almost exclusively and haven't had any of those problems listed in the list from The High Road, and I am a member on The High Road. When I take my Lee molds out of the box I clean them well with brake parts cleaner. Some I can use...

    I started my grandson with a Crickett at 4 y.o. He loved it, they aren't to small for younger kids. He used it till he was 10 y.o. I have two of them on S&S but I don't want to jump through the hoops for other than F to F.

    Yes. The Lee bullet sizer is designed to seat gas checks as it sizes the bullet. I use the Lee sizer to seat my gas checks without a problem. I have used them for Hornady, Sages and Gator gas checks.

    The Lee manual lists a cast 375 grain pill, but it only lists Ramshot Enforcer for powder. I concur with Tj, interpolate using data for the listed bullets. I've done it with other data myself with great results.

    I don't do Black Friday in brick and mortar. AS for online the only deals that would be appealing to me would be either primers or powder soap! I did get some brownie points with SWMBO, I ordered a new Sleep Number bed last month, we had...

    I intentionally loaded some PC'd dummy rounds without sizing them to do a drop test. Sum up my results just by saying, size after powder coating. Each one got stuck to some extent and it wasn't fun. Before that I always powder coated and I haven't...

    I don't know about personal demons as such, but I do believe we all have our weak points. I am sure I do, and I have to fight the good fight or give in. There are times I give in and times I don't. I also know that God does not expect us to be...

    I have stripper clips for my 7.62X39 and 7.62X54R ammo, but I believe they are steel not brass. Either way they don't appear to need cleaning. But thanks for ther heads up.

    I'm not a hot weather person. If I decide to cast in the cold it would be from 20 degrees down to the single digits, and some winters it's negative numbers. I don't mind that at all, I cast outside and that just means I don't have to sweat.
