    I would think Accurate 1680 might work good in that 28" barrel since its slower than H110 and might give higher velocities. I always wanted one of the Rossi 92's in 454, but I bet its punishing in a 5 1/2 pound carbine. Gary

    Is your Midway barrel accurate? I have bought a couple one in 300 Blackout and one in 223 with Wylde camber. The 223 is a tack driver with jacketed bullets but not so good with cast bullets. The 300 loves those Lee 230gr boolis. I have been wanting...

    I am retired, crowding 70 and have a bad back, I can no longer crawl across the cow pasture to sneak up on varmints. I make up for my handicaps with better technology. These days I hunt crows from my back porch with my 220 Swift, a tripod rifle...

    I guess I am a heretic as far as Imperial Sizing wax is concerned; Imperial works but lanolin based lubes work better. The 10 to 1 alcohol to lanolin mixture requires approximately 50% less pressure as Imperial when forming 50-90 brass into 43...

    243 I have the same opinion of Imperial . I have only stuck one case (5.56 LC 98) using Imperial, but the force required to size or case form is much higher than with RCBS or my homemade lube. I was disappointed with Imperial after all the hype. My...

    Froggie I think you are right. This shell holder has only seen about 300 cases being loaded. I believe it was some type metallurgical problem. You are correct about seeing everything in this game. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I suspect either bad heat treatment or bad machining or both. The machining has lot of rough cutter marks in the recesses.

    I was using home brew lanolin and alcohol. Case was not even stuck, I was able to tap it out with a brass rod. The case rim is not damaged other than a burr on the rim

    I have the KMS˛ setups on both of my Loadmasters and I love them. They provide plenty of bright light to check powder level in the cases and make it very easy to spot other issues on the press. Gary

    I am waiting on a call back from them. They only take calls until 1pm now, I had to leave a message. I tried to email them but they have a notice stating they now have a 3 week wait on emails. Their site also indicates they have none in stock. I...

    While resizing some 45-75 win brass I broke my RCBS #31 shell holder! In 50years of reloading I thought I had seen everything, but this is the first time I ever broke a shell holder. When it happened I thought I had ripped the rim off of the case...

    Your allow might be too soft for the higher velocities. You might want try some linotype alloy, especially for the higher velocities. Also I have had no luck on 223 without gas checks. I think your bullets are stripping the rifling at the higher...
