Speaking of those Lee scoops, I acquired a bunch of different sizes, when I acquired my used reloading equipment. Because I was new, I wasn't even sure what they were and I almost threw them out. I...

.223 Powder Choices ?

New to reloading (and loving it). I've done a few thousand pistol rounds and a few thousand .223 rifle rounds. Regarding the .223, I had been using some Hodgdon H335 powder that I acquired with the...

I may have misunderstood...or I may have repeated it incorrectly. According to the advice I was given if bullet diameter is LARGER than groove diameter (too tight a fit) it can lead to dangerously...

"Slugging the Bore" question

I'm still playing with my 7.65 Argentine Mauser (also called Belgian Mauser) and researching how to reload ammo for it. Because of it's age, I want to slug the bore instead of "guess" on bullet...

Here's my thought (and I may be wrong on this, by the way). Aren't most (if not all) Berdan primers corrosive?

Lee "factory crimp" die or Dillon crimp die?

I'm reloading my first bottleneck cartridges (.223) and I ended up with a Dillon 3-die set (FL sizer, bullet seater, and taper crimp) which I'm VERY happy with. Upon further thought, I also bought a...

"Project Argentine" (7.65 cases from .30-06)

While I'm new to reloading, I'm FASCINATED by the idea of making my own brass. As it is, the only brass I've found is made by Norma, more than $1.50 EACH case, and on back order. For the record, I...

SKS in Connecticut?

Does anybody know if one can own an SKS in Ct? I have heard different views....the most common view is that they are legal with the "fixed" magazine but illegal with a detachable mag. Is this true?

Are "7.65 Agrentine" and "7.65 x 53" the same round?

I've got an old bolt action Mauser marked "7.65 Argentine". While looking thru some reloading manuals I have found something called "7.65 Belgium" which I THINK may be the same as the "Argentine"...
