    Just my .02 worth; I, personally, would temper the Lyman 311041 in hollow point configuration. Top half soft(er) lead 13-14 Brinnell, the bottom half hard(er) about 17-18 Brinnell. Only problem is, you cannot find any level of consistency, close...

    I have never got one. I have been ordering with them since they started their website. I think it is because they have me listed as a dealer. Even though I gave that up years ago

    I would gladly pay $60 per Million of primers. I work with electronics. That is just a pet peeve of mine.

    Length is going to be determined by your own gun. I had dealt with 3 of them and there are HUGE differences between all of them. Size to 0.356" for one.

    A lot of the 556 chambers out there have short 223 throats. Get a 556 throat gauge if you don't believe me. It used to be the throats on most 223 chambers would swallow anything. Notice how in the last 15 years or so most factory guns are shootIng ...

    30gr of 4895 is where mine started to function. With a rcbs 200gr sil bullet. Didn't go much higher till I found a good shooting load. Old clips ran perfect. Newer clips that still had lots of parkerizing still on them not so much.

    May not be big enough. I had one of the original molds and was the biggest piece of dung. He had to replace almost all of the first run of them after waiting 2 years to get it. It is made for a 308win throat. It shoots very well if you get a good...

    Para45lda- I am posting what is shown in the photo, no ram in the .313; one will come with the .314 as shown. Swapping them out accordingly would be advisable. Let me know if this is a deal breaker. HV

    Note: The left die is a Lee factory produced .314 die. The right die was a .311 die that I had professionally opened up to .313. I've never used the .314 die, the .313 was used for a short time. HV

    I have more lino than anything else. That is why I add it to range scrap. It will not hurt anything. Don't get all wrapped up in what you have to have for a mix. Strai hgread t range will do just fine for 95% of what people shoot.

    Get a Lee push through sized. Skip the lube sized. All that is going to do is give you rounded uneven bases. If you must, take a piece of flat steel and put it over the sizing die. Then take your bullet and give it a little bump to seat the gas...

    4198, h322, 1680, rl7, rl10 are the powders you need to find. Your powders you have are kicking it in the butt to hard too fast. Weight sort to 0.1 gr before checking or coating. Size nose first and seat the check before you size. And not with...
