    I have conducted pressure tests in the .308W and the 30-06 using the same load in each rifle with the same bullet sized in .001 increments from .308 up through .314. The increase in average psi all but the .314 sized bullets was within the expected...

    I couldn't take it anymore looking at the crappy fold crimps I made. Pulled both and cut ome of the hulls to short. I'll save the shorty for black powder 10 gauge 2 7/8" loading. At least I have one pretty one vs 2 junkyard dog loads. ...

    This gun was won at a whitetails unlimited banquet back in 2000'. It's been on my safe ever since. It's never been fired and basically new as you can see in the photos. It's a true safe queen. The barrel has stamped on it Pardner Tracker 11 SB1,...

    If you rebarrel you might consider the 35x57. Since you already have the Whelen dies they are shortened and used to form and then load the cases. Using 8x57 cases is the easiest as all you do is run them through the shortened FL die. Of course,...

    Hope fully the the PB GCs will solve the problem. I had some coated bullets 452-230-TCs the coating would severely foul the barrel of my M98 45 ACP. First 3 shots out of the clean barrel would go into 2" at 50 yards then the other 5 in the mag...

    One thing about brain shots that needs to be kept in mind is that there is zero blood loss. Field dressing ASAP helps even though the heart isn't pumping any blood out. I first discovered that when I had three tags. Two buck tags and a doe tag. ...

    Stan Baker passed about a dozen years ago. If I remember correctly Brownell's sold the expansion tooling to do that type of choke. Give them a call. They might still have instructions or advise. I've never did one myself but if I remember...

    "When you double up on soda can, that's for GC shank bullets, right? I think one soda check works for a PB bullet?" Yes, to both questions there. Soda cans run .003 - .004 and even doubled and tripled up the didn't stay on the GC bullet shanks...

    It's more work but thin-walled barrels can be swaged up for choke tubes. It was very common at one time. Stan Baker did one for me in the mid 80's by belling out the last couple inches of the barrel and threading it for his custom Winchoke...

    My dies are adjusted to the peak leverage point on the press. Still a lot more difficult than using my 8mm and 30 dies and I'm sure a lot more difficult than cutting a 22 cal disc. Strips cut from soda can are used by many, but I've not found...

    I've loaded the Lee C457-500-FN to 2150 fps out of a 22" M70 458. Also, to 2050 out of my Siamese M98 45-400-70... 45-70 throated so that bullet in cartridge fits the magazine. Both let you know you've pulled a trigger, but the other end effect...

    Thanks for the tip on bamboo skewers! To be honest I really don’t use mine that much and probably can count on both hands how many times it’s been used. I normally never pull it out until I find an accurate load. That way I can figure out the drops...
