    I hate to hear this. He lived in the same state as I do, though he was three hours drive away. However, my parents lived in the same area way back in the early 1970s.

    I drove out to a public range that I have not been to in several years. I bought a year-long pass for it yesterday and wanted to make sure I remembered how to get there. Also, it was an opportunity...

    I finally had the opportunity to use the RCBS APS Strip Loader and loaded 100 CCI #300 LP primers and 100 Federal #100 SP primers. I hope the LP primers will find their way into some .45 ACP loads...

    I added a picatinny rail mount to a friend's AR so he can mount a Caldwell brass catcher to it and easily recovery his brass. .223/5.56 brass is pretty easy to find at the range, but he wants to...

    I cleaned some LC .30-06 brass. I planned on going to the range today, but I didn't make it.

    Yep, lots of those. I've found a few 6.5 Grendel, .308 Winchester/7.62 NATO, and a handful of .300 Blackout.

    I was processing some .45 ACP brass for reloading before I left for my deployment. When I got back I couldn't remember if I had sized them or not and I left no notes. I looked them over today and...

    Not all of the Winchester Model 70s have the controlled-round feed (the Model 70 XTR is a push-feed). I think that all models in the "classic" series have the pre-64 CRF. The .280 Remington...

    I mounted my Redding T-7 press to a board for subsequent clamping to my reloading bench. That is all I have done lately.

    Methods of Scope Mounting

    What is your preferred or tried and true method for mounting a scope? How do you get the retical straight? How do you get it inline with the bore axis?

    I did a dry run with the RCBS APS strip loader to see just how it works.

    So what's this primer tape they speak of in the instructions?

    I didn't do this in the reloading room, but I made it to the range today and shot a friend's new Glock G42. I put 100 rounds through it. It's accurate, but I did have 1 failure to feed and 3...

    I received the missing parts and instructions for my RCBS APS hand priming tool in the mail yesterday, so I fooled around with it a little today. I took out the large primer seater using the little...

    I'm saving up for a Winchester Model 70 Classic Featherweight (pre-1964 controlled-round feed) in .280 Remington and a set of Conetrol scope mounts. I don't really need it as I don't hunt, so maybe I...

    I dump it out in flower beds and the like. I'm curious to hear some of the stories of accidents as this is advice that I have received from several different people/sources.

    I did get a reply from gandog56. He said his current treatment has him either in the bed or at the doctor's office, doesn't sound like there is any time at all for doing fun stuff.

    lightman, I tried sending you his email via PM but your inbox is full.

    I went ahead and sent him a very brief email. I'll let y'all know if I get a reply.

    I fooled around with the APS hand primer to see how it functions. I discovered that the strips only go in one way, if the tool is going to function properly. I also discovered that the small primer...

    Unboxed a new Redding T7 turret press that I bought from Brownells back in the first part of December. They had it on sale for $249.99 and free shipping on orders over $49. The press is quite hefty....

    I sort by headstamp before converting to .300 blackout as some manufacturers' case walls are thicker than others. When converted to .300 BO the case neck ends up being too thick and require neck...

    Mbaker78,

    It's looks like the APS primer strips are color coded, but that one color covers two different primers. For example, according to the instruction manual on the RCBS website, the white...
