    BrassMagnet replied to a thread New box? in Pay It Forward
    Could I suggest that it be a one-time PIF and not a traveling PIF? Continuing PIFs seem to end up causing problems. Setting it up as a drawing would also be better in my humble opinion. More fair to the interested rather than fair to the fastest...

    I am a bit remiss in updating this, the box arrived safely and I'm swapping and adding to repacking now. As per the standard practice for this box I will start an new post with what it contains to start the cycle over again.

    Went into Gander tonight to kill some time. I wandered back to the guns section and the isles were bare, not uncommon as since they re-opened they have re arranged the store a few times. As I was wandering around the empty shelves looking to where...

    #5 has been my mainstay for .38 and 9mm with plated bullets and some of my cast. #7 gave me some good returns in 9mm with 124g jacketed and with .357 plated loads.

    Just for info! 50-70 and 348 Win require the Special handles. Those Special handles are very rare. If you find a set and can confirm the normal dies are too small in them, buy them fast!

    Its one step up from my Wolf, I sprung for the BH plug and have only ever used BH209 in it, The Lee REAL 320g shoots real well unpatched for me. I have been shooting it more often since I have a lot of shotgun primers from a trade deal and...

    I really detest using poisons/pesticides/herbicides. I try to avoid them whenever possible. I am not fanatical about it. I will use them when other methods fail. With that said, here is a method I learned as a child: Suspend a piece of smelly fish...

    If you want multi-cavity, check out NOE. Most of the Lyman or ideal 25 cal Moulds I have seen are singles. It is just so nice to cast with a 4C or 5C.

    I would strongly advise against multiple cork wads. Using multiple cork wads in a 9.3x74R case reformed to .410 3” all brass shot shell didn’t work well. Shot shells are very low pressure and rifle brass used as all brass hulls should last nearly...
