    I'm in Texas. Humidity and heat are a concern. My dies, Lee sizers, powders (including powderdoat) including primers are stored inside an air conditioned house. Loading is done in a shed with no climate control. Powders stored in a plastic tote....

    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...

    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!

    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...
