Reloading – very serious stuff. No joke. Double check your cases for double charges or no charges before seating those bullets. Check out the discussion at http://www.levergunscommunity.com.
…and my wallet. I couldn’t wait to find a used powder scale, so a week ago I ordered the necessary supplies from Graf’s. “Planning” ahead, I purchased the RCBS .308 competition dies. The feature to adjust bullet seating through minor adjustments and being able to drop the bullet from the top seems like a pretty […]
.45 ACP load: .452″ Silver State SWC 4.1 gr. of Red Dot OAL @ 1.253″ Winchester primers
Couldn’t sleep, so I decided to adjust my .45 ACP dies. I played around with the expander and seater dies, getting them at the right spot. I put to use what I learned from The ABCs of Reloading and experimented a little bit to experience what each adjustment does. I was having bit of a […]
Two things: 1. I’m sorry to those who have requested measurements on certain firearms and seem to fall on deaf ears.

I just bolted down the Rock Chucker on my bench in lieu of cleaning duty. I don’t have any components to actually load any .38 with, but I decided to try it out. One box of dies was marked .38 special; I gave that a try. It was difficult to get the case inside the […]
My uncle was kind enough to lend me his RCBS Rock Chucker. I have dies for .38 special, .357 magnum and .44. It looks like I have a majority of the components to get started. Things like a scale, calipers, bench, etc. will likely be ordered soon. This is a great start.
