I know a guy who pulls a 24 ft. boat with a Chevy Malibu. He's on his second transmission in 3 years. There are a lot of people who are not very smart when it comes to mechanical applications.

3 D's. What's that have to do w/ the question I asked? How about we stay on topic.

People can make such statements all day long but where's the substance. If you're statement is true I'd like to know and I'm sure others would as well. It's relevant.

Back on topic: Says who?

Sonofabitch, how am I going to say this?

I agree with billt.

Holy ****, the sun still shines

Anyways, it's true, people every day do things they can do but probably shouldn't. It makes sense that steel cases wouldn't work the same as the more malleable brass, and if the parts of the reloading tools are steel the selves then you are risking the "give" being in your tools instead of the case.

This coming from someone who doesn't reload, just trying to apply common sense and potentially failing. Onward!

There are volumes of articles on here that give instruction on ways to do it, to make it as easy as possible on the machinery. The overall concensus is that It can be done. As for usefulness, i liken it to starting fires by rubbing sticks together, is it practical to do so? No, but it is useful if it is you're only option? Yes.

Default Cheap Ammo

I picked up some Tula at Cabelas 500 for 99.99 but it was a while back. I will be running this through a mini that has had reliability woes. This ammo is not for being Tgt friendly. Nut I'm relatively sure it can't hurt a mini...

Agree w/Billt; just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

And just because you shouldn't doesn't mean you cant. The statement was you CAN'T which was wrong.
