    On a std Lyman style top punch; Forget the numbers(O.L.D.) but have installed several over the last cpl years. IIRC it's a 6-32 cup point set screw. Drill and tap the top punch for one of these. Then play with the depth. Yup,highly dependent on...

    Winger post #17,IME has a lot to do with it. Think RN vs SWC.... now think,that commercial SWC vs home cast. The sharper/crisper you can keep all foward edges the better. This heavily favors home cast. I shoot varmints with cast rigs at starting...

    I climbed,"out of" tree stands 30 or so years ago. Choosing ground blinds and still hunting,and one of my alltime favorites,sleeping,leaning against a tree. Shot a spike buck this year @7 1/2 yards with a bow. And was as calculated as a brain...

    Make my own. Finished a suhweet,.2665 yesterday. Have 3 Lyman 450's. The leade in is critical,as y'all know. The "fit" between the inner rod and sizer needs due attention. The closer, the better.... but watch the finish on the "I".... it needs to...

    Wifeypoo was mildly interested in the new Bronco but sticker shock,zapped her back into reality. Without too much effort,sorta chose a used Mazda CX-5 for her to check out. I'd done enough research that I felt a used version would make her a...

    There's also the notion of shooting them,"as cast" .... as in,no sizing. Good luck with your project,and please report back... (Not directed at OP) it's the "polite" thing to do. Folks spend time to respond,trying to help and the questioner...

    I use the "regular",non batting. It is an extra step,but one that I don't mind if it makes a difference. Once all the cases are charged,flashlight inspected,I pull off just a little of the fill and gingerly place it in the case. Never have weighed...
