  2. Are you using a Lee U die? Otherwise you're just chasing your tail.
  3. Agreed, once I stopped using factory ammo, and found that my gun had a .357 barrel, and started using BBI 147 bullets with Federal brass and TC .035 moon clips, mine ran like a Swiss watch.
  4. No, I was referring to the factory single port comp. It's useless.
  5. Me? I think the comp is useless. So I load a heavy bullet going slow. But if you want to use a comp you need a light bullet going fast. Probably a slow burning powder like AA#7.
  6. I use a Lee U die, and crimp the s#!t out of them. No bullet creep.
  7. .040 with Win brass was too tight for me. I went with .035 with Federal. A little wiggle worked out better for me.
  8. My 929 barrel slugged at .357. It absolutely would not run with factory ammo. I got massive bullet creep, light hits, and poor accuracy. Now reloaded ammo with .358 bullets, Federal Small Pistol Primers, and a good crimp, work fine.
  9. Ha ha, that .001 ain't what's keeping me from hitting the target
  10. 3.00 plus a few flakes. My digital scale reads 3.05 IT'S NOT 3.50,(it's not 3-1/2) Why would you want to ream the cylinder?
  11. Yep, that's what I load Name: 9mm: 148gr Blue RN: Clays 3.05gr: Win Case: OAL 1.20: S&W 929 Notes: S&W 929 Shots: 4 Average: 882 ft/s SD: 10 ft/s Min: 871 ft/s Max: 897 ft/s Spread: 26 ft/s Power Factor Average: 130 Power Factor Low: 128 Power Factor High: 132 Barometric Pressure: 29 in Hg Temperature: 67 F Weight: 148.0 gr.

  12. Yes, no need to load that long. Don't go any longer than 1.2 or you might have bullet creep. You need some of the bullet inside the case.
  13. Is "nomenclature" the right word?
  14. Thanks, on my 750 it's called "the shell pusher thingy".
  15. Here's my load Name: .38 Short Colt: 160gr Bayou RN: Clays 3.05gr: Starline Case: OAL 1.20 Notes: S&W 627 Shots: 9 Average: 810 ft/s SD: 8 ft/s Min: 797 ft/s Max: 824 ft/s Spread: 27 ft/s Power Factor Average: 129 Power Factor Low: 127 Power Factor High: 131 Barometric Pressure: 30 in Hg Temperature: 74 F Weight: 160.0 gr.

  16. Nah, I just turned my .38 special case feed adapter 180 degrees, and it works fine with short colt.
  17. I've found for me, Starline .38 short colt with tk (expensive) moon clips work best. For .38 special I use Ranch products. I'm my 929 I use tk .035 clips with Federal brass, and Ranch Products moon clips with Winchester brass.
  18. Yes, when I first set up mine I didn't use either No, mine's bolted to a shelf Yes Yes, the same Yes, remove the roller bearing
  19. Trust me, you'll be happy. Sometimes when my wife is really on my case, I'll go to the garage and load 100 rounds in a few hours... ....10 minutes to load, 1 hour and 50 minutes to drink beer
  20. Please don't bring logic and reason into an internet discussion
