    I just bought some pex tubing, load a bunch of tubes, attached a dollar store funnel to the feed tube on the press and rock & roll! Probably not as fast as the 4 tube setup with the collator, but still pretty quick! And my setup cost me about...

    I do all my de-capping on a Lee app press with a universal De-capping die. It might not be quite as fast as the one pictured in the video but I sure do bet it’s a heck of a lot cheaper! And the Lee is still pretty fast! I got mine last June and I’ve...

    Even if they could, it wouldn’t make a difference! If the use of deadly force is justified,case closed. Now with all that being said if there wasmitigating circumstances, do use of deadly force was questionable, then all bets are off.

    Well they still make 35 mm film. So the containers are still available. You might want to check photographers that have been in business for a while I bet they still have some light tight film storage canisters.

    I cleaned the chamber with a bronze brush in a drill and it seems to have resolved my issue after having shot 50+ rounds. Guess I need to invest in a bore scope cause I thought it was clean the first time. Glad it was an easy fix.

    Thanks for the grease idea. I know stingers have longer cases, mini mags and aguila don’t though. What’s the solution to those? I have a couple thousand of each mini mags and aguila, so it’s not feasible for me to not shoot them. ...

    It ain’t got any damage from dry firing. Make no mistake, it isn’t hard extraction, it’s hard lever movement like from higher pressure. The lever moves from behind the lug on the bolt before the bolt moves. Once the lever “unlocks” the...

    Exactly! considering Iíve heard read insane stories about folks taking out Alaskan brown bear with a 500 Smith & Wesson , I would imagine that 500 Smith & Wesson probably take out three or four 150 lb hogs standing end to end! LOL Theyíre really not...

    Robert, thanks for the suggestions. I fire lapped it because I felt a constriction when slugging. I don’t have a way to accurately measure the bullet as it’s 5 grooves. However, a slugged bullet goes through my throats easily. My...
