  1. bit of a hike from the Oregon coast but thanks ! check is in the mail.
  2. Slim that sounds great, pm me your addy and I'll have the gold dust headed your way right away. and thanks !! Ace Holliday, thanks pard, got 'er coverd looks like
  3. need 100 brass, prefer new, once or twice fired better than nothing . yellow brass, any brand, mhs even ok. as-is is fine. ... that easy enough for ya ? thanks !! area code 97439 if u need it, hoping sfrb will suffice
  4. Early Uberti '66 some smoothing and a medium short stroke, I regret not short stroking it from the get\go. 45colt
  5. one obvious thing they keep 'improving'..not in my book...is the powder bar return mechanism.I"m still using just 2 springs and 1 rod that is redundnant to the springs. The new C series has all kinds of gobbledy gook things on it for that. I sent mine for refurb and kept my OLD powdermeasure and told them I would, they were fine with that,and it's still running great.
  6. starting loads of almost any powder suck in .45 colt, because it's a huge case.sooooo don't load a thousand and wish you hadn't .Just a thought.(no,not something I did. )
  7. that is the die bodies, the sizer should have a different colored ring at the mouth opening, that is the carbide that is referred to in 'carbide dies' i'ts actually only the one die.so no lube required
  8. just curious, I can only find these dies listed as carbide sizer,are you sure they are not a carbide set ?
  9. ok so I tried some out today, very gentle recoil compared to many other powders, I think hp38 is.....great! lol thanks all !!
  10. I have books its personal experience I seek. thanks though,that is a lower starting point than my books, i'll try it
  11. I have a bit of some others but acquired 2 full jugs of hp38, how do it work in cowboy level 45 colt loads. shooting 200 grain rnfp, pistol level loads. anyone anyone...and PLEEEZE don't suggest others, I have others. thanks
  12. would never bother to swage them, no swager and not enough to mess with, Was just wondering if the ACP brass was supposed to be spp, because they seat spooky hard. oh well., they were free
  13. long time reloader but...it's always something... tried to reload some blazer brass, and really had to push HARD to seat a small primer, in fact I stopped...just in case. They do take std spp's, right ? man the pockets are tight !!! ..it's 45 acp small primer stuff.....pockets measure .005 smaller than a small primer, fyi ..... are some of their yellow brass cases NOT reloadable. ?? thanks !!!!
  14. The cast bullets I had for sometime hoping to get to them some day.Which never came.


    A lady close by called a friend of mine and said her husband had passed a couple years ago and wanted to know if he knew anyone who would like to buy all his reloading equipment,he mentioned me ,so I bought all he had lots of reloading equipment and ammo.Cast bullets and all.


    To make a long story short,I had intended to load and shoot a lot of them.I finally came to my senses and realized I was never going to get to it.  So I never messed with them and never loaded any of them so I don't know anything about them. I have shot a lot of his reloads and they shoot fine.


    Sorry I could not have been more help.

  15. fyi for those who say 'too 'late', I"m on several reloading pages on Facebook,and the number of newbies to reloading might just surprise ya. 8 years ago when ammo all but dried up,the number of newbs was thousands. It's backed off some,but they are still out there.
