  1. The container on the right is in real old packaging... check the packaging date on the back. I don't think that you should be too worried, load up the old stuff first and you should be good for the range this weekend.
  2. A spent Federal SPP weighs almost 3.2 grains.... there are 7000 grains in a pound...so there are 2188 in a pound. I would round down to 2180 and call it close enough.
  3. Stainless steel brush and acetone works OK with Loctite 620.... Comp is not going anywhere that I am not.
  4. Surely you deserve a treat, let the good folk at Starline do it with some top shelf 38 Super cases. You won't regret it.
  5. I have still got some Vietnam era LSA lube... seems to lubricate OK.
  6. Nah...just the result of competing priorities in a stress rich environent...I use a timer on my tumblers now, lesson learnt. The bearings in the little Lyman had melted all the grease out and it howled like a banshee...but was still running !
  7. The sad part about oil threads is that there are still people who don't use it .
  8. This is 100% on the mark, any case lube is better than none.
  9. Saved me typing the same reply...thanks mchapman 🖒
  10. I once left some 45ACP rounds in a Lyman 1200 tumbler for 6 weeks while I was overseas...they were super shiny to the point that the silver primers had the nickel totally polished off. They still fired OK and the cases were fine.
  11. An old friend would say "Go for it, you only have time and money to loose"....he was my gunsmith and "had plenty of time while I was paying for it".
  12. The match primers are popular for applications where extreme accuracy is necessary, the best Bianchi loads, PPC loads and Bullseye loads are examples.
  13. I have spent too much money on sear jigs.....do not make the same mistake, just buy the Marvel and you are good to go.
  14. Yep... seen plenty like that and they all worked just fine. The red stuff could be a "glue" that holds all the parts of the primer in the positions that they should be. Federal SPP's used to have green stuff and Fiocchi have red stuff. It doesnt seem to matter too much.
  15. If you don't overwork the brass with flare .... you can bet on a minimum of 10 and a maximum of lots more. I have some PMC 38 Super brass that has at least 30 minor level reloads on it and about 10 major level.....yet I have suffered cracked cases after 3 major level reloads with another brand. YMMV
