Lee added the "carbide" designation to their FCD for handguns a short while ago, but still there is some confusion when some one just says "Lee FCD". Lee makes a collet crimp die for rifle/bottleneck...

I believe Lee designed their "post crimping sizing die" for newer reloaders (to help sloppy reloaders hide any mistakes they make). I bought an FCD out of curiosity for a revolver cartridge and it...

That's close to the liquid NRA brass cleaner used before tumbling became a necessity. I used vinegar, salt, lemon juice and dish soap in water to clean brass way before I got a tumbler...

Tumbling in dry media is 99% mechanical action, when some auto polish is added there may be some chemical action added to the process. The cleaner/wax you have will work but these types of additives...

If there are no apparent problems I don't bother to measure anything until after sizing. Depending on the load my 1911 can ding brass and I'm sure if I measured, I could find some out of round. But...

My post was intended to point out the absurdity of reloaders getting upset about one manual's data listing preference. If you don't like the manual, toss it. Simple. I started reloading in '69 and I,...

Perhaps I'm, missing something, but, one load is listed as max. It also has a "DNR" (Do Not Reduce) designation. Well my feeble mind tells me that the listed load should not be reduced, and nor...

Don't need to review the OP as I have seen the "DNR" designation for a specific powder, not a group of powders, just one specific powder listed in a manual. But you show a pic of a reloading manual...

Yes, tumble lubing pre lubed bullets is OK and many do it on commercial cast bullets. Many commercial casters use a lube that is better suited for shipping/handling than lube performance.

Many powder measures use a standard 7/8-14 body for mounting. So any stand with a 7/8" hole can work. A while back I bought a Santa Ana Eng, beam scale (if it's the same company). It is oil dampened...

When I buy a new pistol I often buy a box of factory ammo (for my 45 ACPs I often get Remington 230 FMJ). My 3, 45 ACPs, my 4, 9mm, my 380 and my 32 ACP have never stuttered on any factory round. I...
