  1. Looks like Jay can add another successful buyout to his portfolio. Hope Lyman keeps up the quality of the Mark 7 products but hopefully lowers the prices with their economy of scale operations.. We will see...
  2. Update: Just saw there was a thread on this topic.. MODERATOR: You can delete this thread since there are other on-going threads on this topic. Just looking at the latest Mark 7 video on YouTube and at the end of the video, it states Mark 7 is now a Lyman Products Company. Sounds like Lyman either heavily invested or now owns Mark 7. Am I reading this right?
  3. Just got my new MA 9mm die. Its beautifully machined as expected. Love the decapper. Looking forward to giving it a work out this weekend. So far in the few cases I have run thru during setup look to be great. Case mouth opening is a consistent 0.372" and near zero concentricity (or a best as i can measure with my calipers).
  4. Cleaned a 5 gallon bucket of 9mm brass in my cement mixers and set up my new Mighty Armory 9mm sizing die.
  5. Everglades Ammo Gallant Bullets (just started using these- like the 9mm 125 gr profile best of the coated bullets i have tried) Acme bullets Blue Bullets RMR Bullets I have used all of the above and all provide great bullets. some have discount codes if you do a subscription or search this forum for codes. EGA FMJs are close to lead bullet costs if you buy in bulk during black Friday or the holiday sales.
  6. Are the case mouth flaring dimensions of the M-die and Redding the same? I have the M-die, but I really need to flare the case mouth quite a bit to not shave Acme 124 grain bullets. Wondering if the Redding die was better for coated lead bullets.
  7. For around $400 bucks you could buy 6k of processed 223 brass and just re-use it..

    Always wanted to take a class of his... sorry to hear of his passing.
  9. Everglades Ammo 124 gr FMJ.. RMR 124/125 FMJ's work well as well. HP38/W231 4.3 grains COL 1.150 Primer of your choice (I use Winchester, Fiocchi, Federal) Shoots well and locks slide open on last round.
  10. Lee works fine as do others, but just make sure you have extra decapping pins on hand. You will bend/break them at some point. In my experience, I have purchased $ more decapping pin replacements than the cost of a $40 dollar MA decapping die. Just my 2 cents. Whatever works best for you and your budget will be the best solution.
  11. Loaded 15K of them. Love them. Only downside is they come in 150 packs and my primer tube only fits 100, so it takes a bit longer to fill my primer tubes since i have to "count" the # of primers I am filling in my tubes. My local shop sells them for $.026 / each. cant beat the price.
  12. W231 / HP 38. been using these for years.. Meters very well in any powder measure. Also used Winchester WSF. That also meters very well. Really, any ball based powder should flow/meter well. Stay away from the tube/rod shaped powders. Not sure there are many of those for pistol, but those tend to vary a bit in my experience.
