I received my latest Cabela's (Spring) Shooting catalog in the mail today and they don't list any unprimed brass in their catalog. Unbelievable! :confused:

I recently puchased a Ruger American in .308 Winchester. From the brief range session (sighting in and shooting a few 3-shot groups), I believe this will be a M.O.A. rifle. Also, it has a 4-round,...

On July 30, I ordered an RCBS carbide die set for the .45 Long Colt from Cabelas (I had a gift certificate). As of this date, it's still on back order from RCBS. I checked some of the other Web sites...

I think it's safe to say the "Rifleman's Rifle" is back. In my opinion, the darkest years for the Model 70 were from 1964 to 1968. They slowly made their way back to the Pre-64 quality - especially...

I have never used any of the spray lubes. I've been reloading since 1950 and I continue to use the old fashioned method - an RCBS Lube Pad and RCBS case lube. I will admit that I had two cases stick...
