  1. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Post 14,888 & 14,889: The benefit of going to a public range. I shoot at my own simple range, so I only get to scrounge my own brass. Never seem to increase my brass supply. Don't pity me though, I still swap with others when available.
  2. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Darn, I guess I forgot to bring these to "Show and Tell"... AR has the pulled 50g HP. Liberty ammo states 2000 fps in their 9x19mm loading, but I saw a video online (it must be true) and the guy was getting 2200 fps consistently. No chrony here, so I'll just have to keep wondering. A tad small...
  3. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Getting a bit limited on primers and limited supplies of empty brass, so I guess I'll just shoot the same dozen or so pieces and just keep reloading them to shoot again and again. It's a good way to get some trigger time with the FR-7 and m1891 on these hot days. Yes, the coated bullets are...
  4. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Oh, I don't know, it's pretty straight forward. A friend has one of those less-desirable Universal M1 Carbines, but I run my reloads as fast as I can pull the trigger. It runs flawlessly.
  5. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Received some more .30-30 and .30 Carbine brass, so it's high time to roll some more coated bullet loads. If you want to do a run-n-gun with your lever gun, "Come on down!" Have a blast shooting water-filled jugs/cans, balloons, ceramic tiles, steel, even paper. You may leave your horse at home...
  6. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    As the .30 Carbine head spaces on the mouth, you'll want to have all cases trimmed to length appropriately. I tend to lube slightly, even with a carbide sizer as it makes things go a lot smoother. I usually flare to make seating easier and taper crimp only. Enjoy. You can get FMJ bullets from...
  7. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Used up a few pieces of 7.62x54R brass. FWIW, American Reloading has MP 212 powder (similar to HS-6) in stock. Won't last very long probably.
  8. Looking for bulk .30 Carbine ammo

    Come down to North Stonington and do a simple run-n-gun. You're welcome to shoot off the 500-plus rounds that I have and we can load some of it again (limited amount of primers and 110g FMJ remaining). Oh, my range is only 40 yards, but if you can get all shots into a B-27 10 ring, offhand...
  9. Black Powder

    Just back from M&B Sports (near Foxwoods). There were four cans of Goex there. One FFg, 3 FFFg
  10. American Reloading

    I know, but it saves the hassle of dealing with fraudulent charges.
  11. American Reloading

    I simply send them a check. It takes a few more days, but no more bogus charges on my card. When you submit your order, they set aside the product awaiting payment. If you don't send funds after a period of time (what that is...?), I'd assume they will cancel your order. I've always sent funds...
  12. .451 or .452

    Weren't older SA Colts made for .454" diameter bullets? I don't know when they went to the more common size.
  13. American Reloading

    I've ordered powders and bullets at least a dozen times. GTG. Midwest Powders often have limited load data, but I've been able to work up loads and use many of them. Be mindful that many bullets are pulled, so they may have minor (or significant) marks on them. Some offerings are new product...
  14. Market in the toilet who’s buying?

    Trading the ETFs seems to be the only way to play this market: SQQQ and TQQQ, and that, only with options: puts and or calls, depending on which side you believe in. Expecting a decline in the NASDAQ: buy SQQQ calls or buy TQQQ puts. Expecting a rally: buy SQQQ puts or buy TQQQ calls.
  15. Henry 44M question

    How do they handle slightly over-length cartridges? I have some 260g LSWC rounds that end up over-length (2.700") when seated to the crimp groove. I'd rather seat them to utilize the crimp groove, but they could always be loaded shorter, I suppose. Also, how do broad metplat bullets, such as the...
