    1975 Lee Deluxe whack-a-mole in 12 gauge. Several buddies and I would line up at the college apartment dining room table and reload trap loads for the next trip back to the farm. That lasted for about 3 years until we graduated and got spread out...

    New and improved prices. Hoping the 7mm are on the west coast, too lazy to dig up the tracking number and going by the theory that no news is good news. The 300 win mag and the ingot mold should go out tomorrow if I can remember to get some...

    Envelope for the used 7mm brass arrived today. Assume there's a check inside. Haven't got around to opening it. According to the Post Office, the brass is supposed to be waaaay out west today. Still got 7 different batches of stuff.

    Haven't found it yet. Maybe I sold it to someone here? If I did, perhaps they can jog my memory. I need all the help I can get.

    I think I still have a heavy 308 barrel in the shed. I'll check later. Very low round count, it belonged to a buddy. He didn't shoot it much, just a few hundred rounds. Kev decided that a 260 Remington would be the cat's meow so he had me swap...

    #5, 140 pieces of 7mm ended up closer to 160, and are winging their way west. Post office claims Monday delivery. Still got 9 other items(actually more like 90 cluttering the bench) that need new homes.

    I doubt if they had the insane panic buying like we did here. The last election fueled some crazy stuff. I was in one gunshop and listened to one guy braying that what was on the shelf was all we'd ever see again in our lives. He bought ammo for...

    If you end up doing something similar in the future there are commercial taper expansion plugs available. When I was making 260 Remingtons from .243 Winchesters I found the Redding taper plugs worked great. Much better than my jury rigged that I...

    I'll take your word for it, I assumed 450 because it doesn't look like either of my 550 powder measures or my SDB powder measure. I'll correct my listing. Thanks!

    I've done it, but it's been a couple of years. I think I ran them into a 300 H&H die first. Take it back to closer to a straight (er) profile then reestablish the shoulder with the 375 H&H die. Slowly into the die, in an 1/8", out turn a 1/4 turn...
