  1. My SDB has been busy churning out .45 ammo for the past week. The ground on filed up $200.00 Spartan is oiled and ready.... I have laid down the lever (silhouette) rifles and gird myself to go forth and do battle.... Even though you really crushed me with your insensitivity about my lovely pumkin ball slinger I have contacted Z (and hope to contact membership committee members) regarding your possibility of being allowed membership in this august group....
  2. Now I gotta say...this photo brings a smile to my face.....
  3. Lucky as a 3 pecker goat...... BENIN BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL LAW ATTORNEYS J. KUTA CHAMBERS & ASSOCIATES, L.L.B, L.L.M LEGAL SOLICITORS AND LAWYERS OF THE SUPREME COURT OF BENIN, 404 ADOGLITTA, AKPAKPA COTONOU, BENIN REPUBLIC. Hello my friend, I am Barrister Johnson Kuta, English speaking Beninoise, Solicitor and Financial Attorney/Consultant. I was moved to contact you based on the present condition of things here. There was a foreigner who registered with my Legal firm as his personal Attorney and he was a stock broker as well as a one time secret agent for importing oil from overseas for our former Ministers and also a construction contractor. So, on June 2003 my client made a fixed deposit for US$9,500,000.00 (Nine Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars Only) in a Bank here in Benin with standing statement/agreement with the bank that all correspondence in respect to the fixed deposit contract must be sent to him through my humble chambers. Upon maturity, the routine notification was sent to me, which I dispatched to his forwarding address as usual without a reply. After a month, I sent a reminder which I received from the bank without any reply again. Finally, I discovered from my client's contract employee that he died with his family in the Benin Republic December 26, 2003 plane crash. He died without making any WILL and all attempts to trace his relatives were fruitless. I also discovered that he did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his fixed deposit contract with the bank. Hence I seek your consent to present you to this bank as the next of kin based on the official letter I just received from his bankers reminding me that BENINOISE LAW states that at the expiration of fourteen (14) years the money will be reverted to the ownership of the BENINOISE Government if I do not confirm the next of kin to claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to my deceased client since you share the same surname and a foreigner so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not go into the hands of some corrupt government officials. Note that this transaction is simple and risk free because I will provide expert legal services that will guarantee the successful execution of this deal. If you are interested, please contact me as soon as possible through phone, I shall provide you with more details and how we shall proceed with the claims. I expect you to observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction would be profitable for both of us. Thanks as I wait for your reply. Best regards, Hon. Barrister J. Kuta (Esq)
  4. OK.. Problem is now understood. I need to replace the Plastic Wave Bearings..... My Duh.... Still don't know how to get them in the body but I guess even I can figure it out...LOL
  5. My SDB has shed the white plastic inserts that are on all sides of the moving center "shellplate block" that moves up and down when you pull the handle. The plastic inserts don't appear damaged but will not stay in place when I replace/reinstall them. Anyone had this happen and have a solution?
  6. Thanks to all..... I will go back through every step and make sure I am proceeding according to Hoyle... I just checked the case length again and on the undamaged brass they are really really close to the same ..... It depends how much pressure I use on the thumb roll on the digital indicator which comes out longer or shorter... A thousandth maybe with no particular brass being the longer. I have loaded quite a few of the Precision Black Bullets over the years and really never had a problem with the crimping function. I have measured and my total crimp - even on the crumpled brass - is less than the thickness of the brass at the case mouth opening... I am starting to think that my problem is that I am simply trying to crimp the bullets to an unreasonable amount.
  7. The Precision Black Bullets are .358 vs .357 for the Hornady bullets. I think I will try to buy or borrow a set of Dillon .357 dies and try some more....
  8. CRIMP DIE - not seat die. Sorry... Actually the cases are the exact same length - as far as I can determine - prior to being crushed all to hell... RCBS dies. Three die set in conjunction with the standard Dillon powder drop setup. I reset the powder drop brass expander thingie to where it just puts a very small amount of bell to the brass. Just enough to allow the bullet to start and remain "straight up". It expands the brass about 5/16 deep at the current setting. If I set it to go any deeper the bell is huge and works the brass so far out it will not go into the crimp die at all... The seating die inside is about .7 across and, as far as I can determine, never comes close to the belled out brass. The only contact made with the bullet in the seating die station is from the center stem which actually contacts the bullet and sets the depth into the brass. I backed the crimp die out until there is no contact then started moving/screwing the crimp die downward. Everything looked great and the loaded ammo came out appearing to be perfect with a slight visible roll in at the top of the brass..but.. I could press (albeit very hard) with my thumb - my other hand on top of the thumb - and push the bullet into the case. I adjusted downward about an 1/8 turn at a time and JUST when the crimp got to the point it held the bullet the brass started crinkling again. At the point the crinkling started the brass less than 1/2 the wall thickness crimped inward. As to the bullet "slipping" into the case under thump pressure. I am not a gorilla but I did put a lot of pressure on the bullet with basically a lot/most of my upper body weight into it. Is my test faulty with unreasonable expectations....?
  9. I have been reloading .357 for my PC Silhouette rifle using 125 Hornady XTPs and mixed (mainly Starline) brass with great results. Just got a trial batch of 125 Precision Black Bullets and every load I am turning out on my 550b is as shown below. The XTPs and Black Bullets come out exactly the same OAL but bent and crinkled. I have turned the stem on the seat die all the way out of the die and it makes no difference. The cartridges are leaving the seating station in good shape - the damage is being done by the CRIMP die.... WTH am I doing wrong...?

I am Abdul Aziz, Investment officer, representing my boss and his colleagues. Due to the war crisis, the political situation in our country at the moment is very fragile and because of this and so many other internal problems we are facing that nobody knows what will happen tomorrow, we would like to appoint you as our business partner to assist in securing and managing some of our funds for the purpose of investments in your country on our behalf. If our offer is acceptable to you, just rest assured you stand to benefit heavily from us at no risk to you. I cannot go into much details at the moment until I hear from you.
