    It makes sense not to work the brass more than needed. Thanks! Tim

    I am not a belted magnum shooter, but am curious about sizing. Is there a step inside the sizing die for the belt?

    Good point. Do you use a minimum load when doing this?

    I agree with littlejack and 243winxb. The difference between minimum and maximum headspace for 223 Rem is 0.010 You may not be able to reload those stretched cases safely. You should check your headspace.

    It is not surprising that the higher pressure load stretched your cases more, or that the lower pressure load cycled your action. Small changes in seating depth can result in sudden large increases in pressure. You should always reduce your load...

    I would compare the overall weight of the tractors you are looking at. 1600# of lift is great, but not so great if it does not have the overall weight to handle that much up front. I have used a JD 5310, weighs 6800#, and the rear end would...

    I thought there was an issue with moly breaking down at bore temperatures and causing barrel erosion?

    I use an old RCBS Uniflow with a baffle. I tap twice at the top of the stroke and twice at the bottom of the stroke and get very consistent results, for my purposes, down to 1.5 grains. Consistent strokes and taps are key. If you are looking to...

    I had a an issue 2 years ago with a new SP-101 in 327 Federal Magnum locking the cylinder up and not ejecting from one chamber. I contacted Ruger and they sent me a shipping label. UPS picked it up at my house and returned it to me five days later....

    If you are having problems searching you could try using google. To restrict google to only searching the cast boolits site use the "site:" prefix. For example to use google to search for "45-70" enter the following on google: ...

    I have both and, while I don't have arthritis yet, I think the Ted Cash style is easier to use. I have used #10 and #11 caps with mine.

    I may approach a few of the local shops now that I have a better idea of a fair price and see if it is worth the effort. I need to investigate boolit traps so I can recycle what I shoot. I will watch the Swappin & Sellin forums here for ingots...

    In my case it is always the nut behind the trigger. I am not sure if segregating your boolits by weight would change anything, but it would be another data point.

    Not many tire shops provide COWW in ingot form. There is time and effort included in that ingot at a $1 per pound. What would be a reasonable price for a 5 gallon bucket full, $75, $80? I am curious how much zinc you feel is acceptable in a...
