Re: Mods: Outside links

Yea, know the workarounds, but after getting on a few other sites before coming here, I forget that the links take over the current tab, so I follow my interest (or I would not have clicked it) in whatever link it takes me to and rarely make it back here after that. But after reading some phpbb boar...

Re: Brass condition question

Yea, I would wet tumble with pins, it will get all the corrosion out and let you see if there is any pitting. If one is not available, I would put them in a plastic coffee can with a lid, add water citric acid and dawn, let them sit for a few minutes then swirl them around a bit, should get most of ...

Mods: Outside links

I have a question for the mods; on this site, most every external link that is posted sends me to it on the same tab that this site is on, and many times I just don't come back for a bit because it disappears from my tab lineup. Most other sites, if not all, open another tab for external links, and ...

Re: Admin help.......The "bots" are taking over!!

+1 on the failure of this particular captcha. On some networks, it checks browser then let's me in, while others it presents the pics, over and over. Then I come on here, and it's full of spam.

What coating was on the one you used, looks like it all was scraped off.

Re: Different data from Hodgdon, Hornady and Lymans. Which data am I supposed to go with?

Go with Hornady data, the others are different bullets. Even if same grain bullet, the ogive and profile may be different, so the COAL may also be different to keep the ogive out of the rifling, that is why I measure from Cartridge Base To Ogive (CBTO). As to the crimp, since you are using the exact...

Re: LEE 1000 turret press setup for 300 Blackout

The Lee turret I have is a 3 hole. It may be more hassle than it's worth... I have a micro saw to cut cartridges, a case annealer and chamfer.. I don't know if this press can handle the neck forming pressure. I have a Harbor Freight arbor press and an extra cartridge holder... build a die holder an...

Re: Issue with forming 300 BLK from 223

Yes, without the expander it bells the case mouth. I am not putting the lock nut/insert back in. I can see right down into the die as I’m sizing/forming, the case mouth is not hitting anything. Unrelated question: on a 300 BLK AR upper (or any AR I guess), how hard should you have to push on the ba...

Re: Issue with forming 300 BLK from 223

When you try and size a case with no expander that is when it flares the neck? Do you put the locknut back in? Maybe you are threading it down a bit too far as it looks that can flare the mouth if it hits it. Put some black sharpie on the bottom of the locknut to see if it is hitting the case. It sh...
