I am building yet another AR and am looking for some expertise on twist rate. It will be a
.223. I typically reload 55 gr bullets but may want to shoot something heavier occasionally. I
am putting a 2...

Ditto above message. I've been reloading for about seven years now, and that book (on a
recommendation from another experience reloader) was the first thing I bought and read cover to
cover. Then I as...

Great question. Ditto on much of what was said here. I've learned some of it the hard way!I
have two 1858s made by Pietta, and a couple Navy revolvers (also made by Pietta). I use Pyrodex

Welcome to the wonderful world of reloading! As you mentioned, we reloaders tend to be kinda
particular about our stuff!I started reloading about seven years ago. I was initially shown the

Posted in thread: Can Anyone Identify This Revolver??? on 12-15-2010 at 01:49 AM
That's a neat find. I, too, came into a U.S. Revolver top-break revolver recently! It belonged
to my grandpa when he was a kid (1910's-1920's-ish). It is quite worn and shows a lot of use. I

Welcome to the wonderful world of reloading! I started reloading about seven years ago. My

I recently shot an AR-15 that a friend bought with a Plum Crazy lower, which is composite
(first time shooting composite; I own a few ARs, and all have DPMS lowers). The fit is very
good between the u...

I also have a Pietta, but the 1858 Army model. Man, what fun! I have excellent luck using Bore
Butter as a lubricant and the Pyrodex pellets (cuts out the measuring powder step and so far,
has worked ...

I have only shot a couple of their semi-autos, and wasn't overly impressed, although, all in
all, not terrible weapons, either.I do own a Taurus Model 44SS6 .44 Mag. that I absolutely
love! Nice porte...
Posted in thread: What are some good pistol powders for the 45, 38 and 357? on 11-26-2010 at 05:07 PM
I second everyone who mentioned Unique. I reload a lot of pistol calibers, and I agree that
Unique is a good one for many pistol calibers (most often I'm doing .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .38 SPL,
.44 Mag.). Yo...
