  1. CHA-LEE's Tale

    Lol. Actually, i shoot a dot at most of the indoor matches for the same reason...I was hoping that you had a way to shoot the irons.
  2. CHA-LEE's Tale

    Cha-Lee, when you figure out the cure for those site issues, please post them, as I am very interested. I shoot an indoor match and have the same issues.
  3. Loose Bullet

    Cool. Now, please do not shoot those rounds that look like rifle rounds. Toss them...
  4. Loose Bullet

    Youngeyes nailed it. Back your crimp die all the way back out. Seat a bullet in the case and move it to the crimp station. Raise the ram to the highest position, then lower your crimp die down until it touches the bullet, finger tight. Lower the ram, turn the crimp down 1/8th to 1/4 of a t7rn more, then lock it down.
  5. Advice needed on tripped hex screw

    Go to Home Depot or Lowe's and get a small, Bernzomatic butane torch. The flame will have a very thin point when lit (they cost about $25), and get a good set of Torx bits.

  7. Crimp Problem

    Actually, that is what happens when you try to roll crimp a bullet with no cannelure.

    These are bulged.

    Two things. Polish the feed ramp (bright and shiny), and try shooting some Blazer brass and see if it does it with those. IMO, I don't think the aluminum cases are as smooth/slick as regular brass cases.
  10. Glock 35 limited or production setup?

    I've shot Production with a 40S&W and a 9mm. While the 9mm is cheaper to shoot, the 40 seems to be softer (with the correct loads). I would say shoot Production.
  11. Hi from Canada

    Jack, didn't you get those dates wrong? 1859-1860, right?

    And it did remain the same, but because the case was shorter, and it headspaces off the case mouth, it drove the case further into the chamber, causing the bullet head to get stuck in the rifling.
  13. Home made case lube

    I use a kind of paste lanolin I bought at a Mother Earth store. I'm sure that the liquid type lanolin works better, but the stuff I use is good enough. This is what i use mixed with 99% alcohol. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000I1OYNK/ref=mp_s_a_1_5_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1523407903&sr=8-5&keywords=lanolin&dpPl=1&dpID=41Qwu089fTL&ref=plSrch But this would probably mix better with the alcohol. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00028MLKC/ref=mp_s_a_1_9_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1523407903&sr=8-9&keywords=lanolin&dpPl=1&dpID=31rCeBGcIXL&ref=plSrch
  14. How clean is your bench?

    I'd have to clean mine off to even see if there was a bench under all the stuff.
  15. Ruger Revolver Triggers?

    You can buy springs for them, and i have the lightest springs possible in mine...but it is only 100% with Federal primers, and i wouldn't want to trust my life to it even then. The issue is the Ruger firing pin...it can't be replaced like the S&W. If I could get an extended firing pin, i feel I could go lighter on the springs. If all you are gonna do is use it to carry hiking, buy the spring pack, put the medium springs in, and polish all the surfaces up. I doubt that you will find a better gun at the price you can get the Ruger at...just gotta live with the trigger
