  1. To lower your initial expense, you can use non-Dillon dies in the 550. I only have one setup that I use full Dillon dies on.
  2. Call Dillon and have them help you get what you want. The strong Mount is great. You will need the dies AND the conversion kit for each caliber you want to reload. It makes it easier if you have a separate toolhead for each caliber to make changing easy.
  3. The AE (Angle Eject)was to allow use of a Winchester and a scope. They are not allowed in NCOWS matches. (Let the NCOWS bashing begin...)
  4. I'll take the crimp die. PM me with payment info.
  5. Taylor's offers conversion cylinders for their 1851 and 1860 percussion revolvers. They are five-shot. Can I assume there is a hammer landing spot between the chambers so all five can be loaded?

  7. It could be part of a leader that is broken. Without something to reference for scale it's hard to know. The hook is a circle hook that is designed to draw the hook to the corner of the fishes mouth if slowly reeled in. I have used them for flathead catfish and musky using live bait. It's best to wait until the fish starts to swim away and then reel the slack in. The hook can then set itself and it's fairly easy to remove. I use 100-pound test leaders for musky that use a clasp somewhat like that shown.
  8. That brought back memories! We used to hunt snipe (related to woodcock) in south Florida and them birds are hard to hit. We experimented with every wild idea on how to make a pattern spread fast, even making cardstock dividers for the shot. (I saw it in a magazine.) It didn't help. I can't imagine using such a valuable asset to hold the top on! Not long ago the TP was worth more than the press!
  9. I have had both. The Lee had everything required to do any load using any powder. But, everything is plastic and I don't remember a way to empty the hoppers without unbolting it and dumping it upside down. (It has been 35 years so I may be mistaken.) I have a MEC Junior now and the quality is much better, but if I decide to change loads, I need to buy another bushing or shot bar. I do like the fact that I can easily remove, empty, and replace the shot and powder bottles. And Sportsman's Warehouse is just a 45-minute drive away and they stock many MEC parts.
  10. Some of you may not know about Boyds Gunstocks. They don't have everything but they do have many items for guns we use. I have bought stocks from them and they are very nice. https://www.boydsgunstocks.com/
  11. I got this small albino white-tailed buck in 2008 while living in Indiana. I had it a friend skin it and he did an awful job and put a few cuts in it. I had it professionally tanned. It has sat in my closet rolled up since. I need the shelf space back. It fits in a USPS flat-rate box. I would like $65 shipped. I added a photo of the back showing the cuts in red. The hide is roughly 36" long, 21" wide at the front, 30" wide at the back.
  12. $35 for all shipped. SPF I take PP, Venmo, check, or MO. See my other stuff for sale and combine shipping.
  13. Still thinning my shelves. $3.00 each plus shipping. I take PayPal, Venmo, Checks from SASS members, or MO. See my other books and items for sale and I'll combine shipping.
  14. Redding shows it as a .458 diameter.
  15. It pains me to type this but I just don't have time or room to resume tying flies and I can't say I enjoy getting my line tangled or "popping" a fly off by cracking the whip. I have thousands invested in a vise, tools, hooks, books, materials, etc. This literally is everything needed to get into fly tying. There is too much to haul out and photograph unless you are really serious. If you are local I also have fly rods and reels that can be added to the deal for additional funds. This stuff has been boxed up and I don't fully remember what all is in the boxes. I can meet up in Northern Pho
  16. Same here. I have to check and recheck just to make sure I don't send the wrong thing.

    CCI SR #400

    I have no idea. They were gone before I checked it.

    CCI SR #400

    I got an ammoseek alert for CCI #34 primers at Midway. I hopped on it and got 1K. You have to be fast. I shortened my email refresh time from 10 minutes to 2 minutes. I still missed out of SPP the other day.
  19. I have the RCBS ProMelt II. While I have not had the runaway lead issue, I do get some dribbles. I also get the spout freeze up and need to run the digital controller higher to get it not to do that.
