    Needed for what? I lived in AK for 32 years and most folks there that spent time in the woods didn't think the 357 was needed. Most thought a handgun round should start with a 4 and even then the 41 mag as about minimum and many preferred the 12 ga...

    I used to shoot NRA 50' indoor and there were several shooters using a 45acp that could make scoring even ten rounds in one target difficult at 50'.

    I have never understood why some folks think starting loads are to be ignored. I don't know which Speer manual it was but one of them showed loads that the powder charge recommended wouldn't fit in the case.

    I have never used a LnL as I bought a Dillon 550b before the LnL existed. The primer system may not be as good as the 650, don't have a 650 so can't say, but it works almost flawless. It flips one out of the primer cup about 1 in 1000. Spilled...

    I use normal FL dies but set the sizer to stop just short of touching the shoulder and haven't had any problems with over expansion at the base on my 300 H&H. I use that method for all of my bottleneck cases. I believe over pressure is what...

    Just off the top of my head as a start; the US Navy's Grumman TBF Avenger comes to mind - it had one 50BMG and Two .30 machine guns (one facing forward and one facing rearward). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Miller

    My wife provided me my first large supply of lead back in 1989. I had accumulated a little at a time back in those days - just ahead of what I was shooting it seemed; 2/3 of a 5 gallon bucket was the most I had on hand back then. When I got home...

    Getting an electric vehicle to perform is easy, keeping it charged and keeping things cool while pumping thousands of amps in or out of the batteries and the time it takes to charge are real problems. Think of a semi pulling the grapevine hauling...

    Murdochs had quite a few .223's and 7.62x51 on the shelves a few days ago. the 223's were about $15 per box of 20 and the 7.62x51 was about $28 for box of 20. Limit of two boxes if I remember. They are looking awful pricey to me. I swage my own...

    I have done some for a 7.62x54. I just drilled for the 209 then counter sunk with an end mill. I don't remember the sizes but I did it on a mini lathe which makes the depth for the 209 rim easy. I have shot normal cast boolit loads but not factory...

    Well, that's even higher than I thought they would be. I won't be getting one at that price.

    I taught myself to reload and to cast boolits as I didn't know anyone that loaded or cast. Years later I found this site and learned how to do it right.
