    Vibratory dry cleaning case lube off finished reloads?

    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 !

    Are all lubricants created equal?

    The sad part about oil threads is that there are still people who don't use it .

    Vibratory dry cleaning case lube off finished reloads?

    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.

    Federal Small Pistol Primer regular vs. Match

    The match primers are popular for applications where extreme accuracy is necessary, the best Bianchi loads, PPC loads and Bullseye loads are examples.
  8. 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.

    Winchester primers.......

    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.

    38 super comp brass

    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

    Load data for Bayou 138 grain DEWC

    4.1 of 231 does it in my K frames.. 3.7 of WST is good as is 3.5 of Clays and 3.8 of BE. I use the BNWC in my revolvers because I have plenty.

    Bullet size is the number 1 cause...too small a diameter for your gun. Try some .356" lead bullets. Over crimping will size bullets down...so check that you are only removing the bell

    650 9mm brass processing

    Clean the stainless screws with acetone then use a drop of Loctite 243 on each. Let it cure for 24 hours and the screws will not loosen up. To remove just put a butane pencil flame on the head of the screws for about 20 seconds and they will screw right out.

    STI Trojan 9mm accuracy

    How tight a group can you shoot at 50 yards. If your best is 4 inches and the gun can shoot 2 inches then I guess that 4 to 5 inches would be acceptable.
