    "The powder burns completely in the chamber and a few inches into the barrel." Not quite. Peak
    chamber pressure occurs within a very few inches of bullet travel but few charges are
    completely burned ...

    "I've read that you want a slow burning powder in a longer barrel rifle so you can maintain
    higher pressure longer till the bullet leaves the barrel. Faster powder for pistols and shorter
    barrels. So ...

    ".22 For self defense. Yay or nay? "Well, a .22 RF would be a lot better than throwing
    tomatoes but consider that the value of a 'double tap' to the head started with Europe's panty

    Not some halfassed machined chrome bumper that Lee calls a reloading die. Been to the RCBS
    factory and they are great people who all love to hunt, shoot fish and take PRIDE in producing
    the best quali...

    " wondering what is the "real" difference."Valid question. Truth is, ammo is made inside
    the dies and the 'feel' - nice surface polish, neatly cut knurling, etc - is on the outside. If
    'quality' ...

    "The primers have double stacked from time to time. But the brass doesn't want to go into the
    shell holder at all. I just wasn't sure if its the brass or the shell holder." It's neither,
    you're using ...

    "People will wait until the election, then if Hussein gets in again, they'll run like sheep and

    Can but it's not ideal. The British round is best with a .311"-.312" bullet and the American
    round normally takes a .308".

    "...the drum and bucket media separator it generates a lot of lead dust ..."No, it doesn't.
    There is no "lead" at all in powder or cases, virtually no lead residue even from lead bullets
    or primers. A...
