    rbuck351 replied to a thread tulsa gun show question in Our Town
    I go to any gun show near me. I'm not looking to buy guns, ammo or components but I rarely go without finding something I can use for one of my projects. At the recent Kalispell gun show the only thing I got was two new 1911 8 rd mags and a 22lr...

    Yes, there is only one 338Win/338Win Mag. Some dies are marked with mag, some are not.

    Yeah, I'm very happy I started loading and casting about 1970. I got caught in a primer shortage around 1978 IIRC. I then started buying components a bit at a time as often as I could afford. Now over 50 years of stocking components has put me in a...

    I would go with two powders. Your titegroup is fine for low to midpower loads but I would use a second powder to get closer to the top end for mag rounds. 2400 won't give quite the velocity of H110/296 but close enough. 2400 also down loads well to...

    rbuck351 replied to a thread Time for a reline? in Leverguns
    I have a 1921 made 92 in 25/20 that has been beat to death on the outside but tight action. The barrel although is not a sewer pipe is certainly not pristine. I use the Lyman 65gr boolit cast from wcww, with check and lubed weighs 73grs. My best...

    I have some in 38 and 44 and an old swag-o-matic press to install them but I haven't used any as I find cast boolits to work great without the half jacket. I might try them some day.

    I believe in free enterprise. Keep in mind you are allowed to sell your product for what ever you can get but I'm am allowed to buy where ever I want. So if you sell at scalper prices, I won't buy from you. I have bought very little gun related...

    I use them for 410 shells but there is no reforming them, they work great just as they are.

    I didn't recommend the RC just stating the difference between it and most older presses and some newer (not new) presses. The main thing I like about my Lyman AA is it only has 4 stations which is just right for loading handgun rounds one at a...

    Someone is probably going to make a bunch of money on this deal and I'll bet it doesn't last long after the bid winner takes possession.

    I was gifted some 5010 or 50bmg, not sure which as well as some H116. The H116 works very well in 223 cast loads so I haven't tried the 50bmg in the 223. I have been using the 50bmg in a couple of my larger cases such as 358N and 416 Rem with cast...

    I don't use it in my revolvers as it is known for top strap flame cutting but it works great in my Rossi Puma 454 Casull with a 300gr Lee and a caseful of Lil gun. I'm going to try it in my Hornet and K Hotnet. The recoil prevents me from doing the...

    I have found the only time difference is the die switch part. I have a Lyman AA turret and my loading buddy with no room in his apartment used the opposite end of my bench to set up his rock chucker. We decided to see who could load 50 rds faster. I...

    Mr Packer If you should happen to be traveling through the small town of Eureka MT, please stop by for a cup of powder or a flat of primers or boolits. This includes room and board for the night and range time at my humble range. I enjoy...

    We moved from SE Washington to Alaska in 1983 because of politics and relatives. I retired in 2016 and we moved to western Montana because of weather. We really like it here but I'm retired so I have a decent income. The only issue in the small...

    I would check the size as cast and if is .265 or larger, I would lube it and shoot it. Your barrel works like a sizer die and it will size down anything within 3 or 4 thou oversize to a perfect fit.
