    There are other factors beside brass vs steel vs aluminum. Refer back to #5 by 243winxb's photo. The 4 hole steel SAECO will heat up faster than the 4 hole Lyman. The Lyman is bigger. I have both and sometimes when casting both at the same time...

    I have 2: one set up for LP & one for SP. I bought them to carry on prairie dog hunts as part of my kit in the event we ran out of loaded rounds. I recognize that they have a strong following, but I prefer my RCBS bench priming tool for rifle & The...

    Redding has a track record of problems with the seating die being too tight & removing the case bell during the seating operational. You can get 10 Lyman "M" dies and seat with that Redding seat die & you'll have the same problem. The Lyman does...

    The 2nd. paragraph of your used the word "smelting" on conjunction with the use of your Lee bottom pour pot. I'd suggest that all smelting be done other that in your Lee pot & flux often. Sometimes draining the pot & a good clean-up is the best...

    303Guy, I bedded the action bottom completely which was a challenge due to the many slots on the bottom. The stock I'm working with is a semi-inletted 90% shaped aftermarket affair that I bought about 25 years ago (wish I could get another now)....

    +1 on the #358432. I have a Lyman 4 cav. that I bought in '77. It's accurate. My sons called it "that bullnose bullet".

    I'm not a collector, but do have a Sears "Ted Williams" box of .22 L.R. (only 49 out of the original 50).

    oldhenry replied to a thread 6mm Remington in Vintage Ammo
    My 1st. center fire rifle was a 722 in .244 Rem. bought in '58 or '59 from Montgomery Ward for $75.00. Contrary to the information at that time it shot the 100 gr. spitzers OK. The rifle had a 26" bbl. It was accurate, but heavy. When Remington...

    I'm prepping a Rem. 521T for blueing. The bolt handle & rear bolt shroud are case hardened. I seem to recall that when the case colors are removed by polishing the conventional re-blue process produces an even purple color over the part. If that is...

    303Guy Thanks for the response. I solved the "rocking" problem by bedding more of the bbl. I increased it to 3". A friend who is into .22 rf bench rest suggested 3.5"-4".

    303Guy, Do you find that the rear screw to be almost a necessity when floating the barrel? The reason I ask is I'm on my 3rd. attempt at bedding & floating bbl on my 521T. With the single screw & bedding only the front 1" of the bbl & the bottom of...

    303Guy, Thanks for the photos. That rear flat looks slightly larger than the same area on my 521T: but, it's doable with a small diameter screw (12-32?).

    When you do the 2nd. action screw I think a photo would be of interest to many. I'd like to make such an alteration to my 521 "Sporter" project, but the magazine opening limits location for that 2nd. screw.

    I love those 500 teen series Remingtons. I have a 511, 512, 512P & I'm working on a 521T sporter project. The donor gun had a 513 stock, Crossman (Mossberg) 331 receiver sight & wasn't pretty. The Crossman/Mossberg 331 sight had 10-32 threads....

    I almost bought one about 3 or 4 years ago. The dealer had about 12 or 15 in the show case and 1 Ruger SR1911 OM. The Ruger SR1911 OM was priced $100.00 higher than the Kimber so naturally I asked to see the Kimber (also the Kimber looked better...
