  1. I’m a couple days late here but I run 9.0 gr with 115s to make 172. I suspect lots may vary.

    I’ve never had a problem selling them as scrap locally. I take them in gallon ziplock bags typically. There are a couple of grades of scrap brass and they give the lower grade for cartridge brass.
  3. If you made a Brekke style from aluminum just thread it like a normal comp and also the barrel so the barrel heating up wouldn’t be a problem.
  4. Never used a rod, but always install them and sight through the bore to ensure alignment the first time on any gun. If it is off it will be noticeable. I don’t care if it’s factory threaded, my own thread job, or done by someone else.
  5. You should be safe using 150 gr bullet data to start with. Just start low and work up. I loaded some 147 fmj a while ago and that’s what I did. I’ll check to see what I came up with when I get back to the loading room.
  6. Ok. Need to try some of that
  7. I guess I got lucky with the swage it adapter. I have an older one from when they first came out and have prepped 8-10k pieces of brass with it with no issues. I set up a separate tool head for the 650 for brass prep. When loading it’s pretty rare that a primer doesn’t seat correctly. I also have a Super Swage but haven’t used it in quite a few years but don’t see any difference in the results.
  8. You can either buy the adjustable charge bar or use something like nail polish to build up the inside of the hole to reduce volume. I hate to give advice not knowing how it works in your gun but you may be just fine without changing anything. A trip to the chrono would be a good idea.
  9. I think I have 7 packages somewhere in the system. 3 are from November and appear to be stuck in sorting facilities. One is a case of Montana Gold 9mm bullets. Sucks when Amazon packages sail through in a couple of days but Priority Mail gets no priority.
  10. It looks like they sell full cases listed separately but they are not available yet. I wouldn’t expect to see those offered until the market settles down.
  11. That’s pretty wild. I just don’t use any media at all. Just soap and water For an hour and brass is more than clean enough.
  12. jfp, fill out your profile with a location. You might find someone to trade them. Rem 7 1/2 is my favorite sr primer
  13. I went down the LNL road years ago. A friend and I had convinced ourselves that red was as good as blue but I will admit I was wrong. Red makes good ammo but blue is definitely a better machine. I eventually even had a pair of LNL presses set up. I had some money and just had to see what the 650 was all about so I ordered one and set it up for .223. After the first day I realized what I had been missing. I sold the other LNL and ordered another Dillon. I won’t argue all the things back and forth but I Would never say red is as good as blue. I didn’t like 700x for anything myself.
  14. Ad for 223 Conversion Kit.
