Swallowing nitroglycerine! That's worse than playing with dynamite.

Lee classic current press kit from local shooting supply store in my little town $215 out the door

That's less than the midway price

Does it have the newer type powder drop (Autodrum) or older Pro-Auto disk? Auto drum is far better in my opinion.

Re: Which press is right for me question asked for the 100th time

You really don't need a single stage press, just put your universal decapper in one of the turrets and use as a single stage.. The Lee Turret is an auto indexing design yes? How do you disable the auto indexing so the turret says on the decapper die with each pull of the handle? It is easy to make ...

Frankford Arsenal DS-750 Thanks , though really looking for a 120v scale ], not battery. So Dillon Precision 10483 D Terminator 900 Grain Electronic Scale 120 V has my eye right now. Turrets, buy a bunch and buy another riser as you probably will want a spare at least of one. By a “bunch” Im assumi...

Re: Mexico: tourist drinks spiked at resorts. Many die but stories covered up

+-$2.50 per car, and I think 60 cents a person for pedestrians. If it was only a dime in the '90's, you must have been on foot......I think I paid about a dollar driving back from Nuevo Progreso about a decade ago. I wouldn't take a car into Mexico. We were on foot. I would never go back. I remembe...

Anyone can handload but avoiding catastrophic mistakes is the difficult part. You always hear people saying "I've been loading for xxx years...." but that means nothing. It only takes one mistake or some lack of knowledge to cause a catastrophic failure that blows up your rifle. One of th...

Re: Which press is right for me question asked for the 100th time

I went with the Lee classic turret. It's not that expensive and if you don't like it there is always Craigslist. From there on prices go up. I also use Lee dies and the Lee Autodrum for powder (very accurate). The only thing I don't like with Lee is the primer feeder and sometimes I just hand prime ...

Re: Which press is right for me question asked for the 100th time

I started with a single stage Lee press and moved up to a Lee turret. I don't need to turn out thousands of rounds a month as some do. With a Lee turret I can safely follow each step, turn out at a reasonable speed and get good quality ammo, maybe even better quality than with a progressive. I load ...

Re: Why You Should Always Check The Firearm

Similar thing happened at Wichita Falls gun show probably 6+ months ago. Vendor had a shotgun go off that was loaded and several people had minor injuries. They safety check people bringing guns in for sale but apparently didn't check vendors.

I pretty much had the same idea and settled on a Ruger SR1911 (full size). Very happy with it. Made in USA.

Re: Case Gauge .223?

Is there really a difference? Both the Headspace Gauge and the Case Gauge/Ammo Checker shown in the video are cut with minimum SAAMI Spec Chamber Reamers and have a groove at the top of the gauge to denote the minimum and maximum headspace length. Some case gauges do not have the min/max groove but...
