  1. Sam, look at the 1st picture you posted: the round is not up to the face of the bold and the extracter is not hooked into rim of the live round on the carrier ... you need longer COL's on your reloads .... and put a good crimp on them
  2. I keep 4 listings in the reloading room for quick reference: * Powder Inventory separated between black powder grades & smokeless powders - quantities for each * Reloading die sets by caliber * Firearms Inventory - smallest caliber up including scopes & spare barrels. A TO DO, identify each in what safes they are in * Relative Quickness Burn Rate Table. A TO DO, highlight on the Table the smokeless powders in inventory Of course, if one has only a few of each and doesn't reload (re: Burn Rate Table) ... there is no reason to maintain lists except their detailed Firearms Inventory for insurance & estate purposes
  3. Have been curious about the velocity of factory AA Low Recoil/Low Noise Target Loads Shotshells ... 980 fps https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/winchester-aa-low-recoil-low-noise-target-loads-shotshells If you want to calculate your reloads ...Recoil Energy Calculator ... http://www.shooterscalculator.com/recoil-calculator.php
  4. The box is worth more than the ammo because it is a two piece
  5. It has to be the primers or the hammer spring is too light. For any primers to ignite crushing the anvils - they have to be hit by the firing pin ... HARD & FAST Your hammer spring needs more force
  6. Thousands of Colt 45's reloaded in a basement humidity of 70 - zero squibs or miss fires Now if your reloading in the garage during a thunder storm - Possible
  7. Cat - hope it was just the stock you carried into the store
  8. IMNSHO, this is an example of no or poor Regression Testing. That is where someone (independent from the programmer) tests that no features are broken that once worked when programming changes or additions are implemented. Allie - I had the same problem with customers for financial software implementations that we developed and installed when I as working. PS, the coding for the <> command box has been revised - not for the better
  9. Now the question arises : Who owns a Schutzen type rifle and who participates in the sport?
