    I agree on Remoil. It was being used at Montana Rifle Co. when I started working there. We found the same problem, dries out, and doesn't prevent rust. I converted the company to Ed's Red, problems went away.

    For your big stuff. The Hollywood Sr steel press - look for $200-500- very much depending on who wants it - collectors will pay more. Shoot some oil on it so it moves easily and add another $100! The Belding and Mull powder measure - if it is...

    I am a shooter that hunts. I normal shoot about 20,000 rounds a year. I like shooting so I shoot whatever as much as I want or need. The least shot is my smokeless muzzleloader. When I first got it I shot it a lot for load development. Now it's...

    From the looks of your cylinder you have an original - and probably an early one. These should only be loaded with black because of the metal used and the thinness of the cylinder walls. The Colt New Model Army and later can stand stronger loads.

    Did your haul include a set of 45-70 dies, rf your previous post considering the use of your 310 tool? If not you now have a decent press, and a variety of reloading dies. Adding a set of 45-70 would be your next step if not already in the mix.

    I have both and I much prefer the 686's. That being said most of my S&W's are pre-1993. I do own several of ECM barreled Smiths and I have no issues with them for cast. With the factory stock Ruger or S&W triggers its luck of the draw. Once you...
