I've been really happy with my Dillon. I have never owned another progressive so I have nothing to compare it with. I've always kind of wanted a Star!

We all have our favorite calibers and any one of them is better than not having one at all. My youngest Son had to spend 2 years of his medical career in critical care in order to advance his career...

Most of the newer generators will run on either NG or LPG. Most can be changed by turning a screw someplace in the intake system.

If I was sitting on 40K 9mm cases I would be tempted to sell it for scrap. Tempted! But I remember the last shortage and some of the earlier ones and how scarce and costly any brass got. If you have...

Thanks for the reminder. We went through this at Thanksgiving. Had to move my night stand gun while the youngest Grandkids were here. Will have to do it again for Christmas.

I have moved my 500# Browning safe myself, a few different times. But I paid a safe company to move my 2000# Fort Knox. One of my wiser decisions!

I'm not a Creedmoor fan, mostly due to all of the hype. But the cartridge has all of the earmarks of an inherently accurate cartridge. Much like a 6mm BR.

I find mostly 9mm, 223 and 40 S&W in that order. Mostly what I call "Black Gun Cartridges". Next is probably 380 and then a few 45 acp. Before and during deer season I'll start finding rifle cases....

I've done it before. I have actually killed a deer with a 1911. One came out close enough that I was comfortable taking the shot. It was kind of a bucket list thing at the time, trying to see how...

I had problems from a Ruger Blackhawk that Ruger did not fix. And I probably had the only Browning HiPower in existence that would not feed. Browning was no help either. Both got traded but I have...

An inertia puller has its place but I prefer to use a collet puller if the bullet style will allow. Safety glasses and maybe even gloves are a good idea when using an inertia puller.

I clean a new mold, or any mold, before I use it. An old tooth brush and some brake cleaner works well. Then I'll pre-heat it, and after its warm I'll lube the lineup pins and the sprue plate near...
