  1. It's been several years, but after my research I wound up going with a centurion (made by Liberty). Not saying it's the best of the best, but it was the best bang for the buck at that time. 800lbs empty, so there's a fair amount of meat to it so to speak. As greg mentioned, fire rating is something to consider. I'd also consider having a small fire safe inside your safe for important documents and cash. Hopefully that will give you double protection against loss from heat. I guess I'm old school too because I avoided the electronic lock and went with the dial type. Whatever you decide, go with bigger (way bigger) than you think you'll actually need. Because we all know it will eventually not be enough. Whatever you decide I'm sure it'll be the right choice for you because like myself you seem to do your homework.

    Hornady 6mm ARC

    These types of cartridges seem to be all the rage now with high BC bullets

    My go to for 9mm and 45 is bullseye. It's a fairly fast burning powder.

    I believe he's talking about the burn rate of the powder itself. Faster burning powder as opposed to slower burning powder.

    1) Full size and decap all in one step (after brass has been cleaned) 2) flair case mouth and seat primer on the upstroke 3) Seat bullet You could get those steps done in three pulls if you are able to prime on the press. Dumping the powder into the case doesn't require a pull of the press handle but you'd still have to throw the lever on the powder dispenser. Just because the book has an accurate load for their components doesn't mean it will be the same for you and your components. You should be able to find a load that works well in both of your handguns, but it will take some trial and error. There's not enough powder in the 45acp case to warrant a magnum powder. Load em up and keep em separate, but a standard primer for each is all you should need. I've never loaded shot shells, so I can't speak to that.

    Replacement barrels for Remington 700

    Maybe get a medium contour from a well known quality manufacturer.

    Replacement barrels for Remington 700

    What kind of groups are you currently getting with it? I'm assuming the new stock is free floated? There are a lot of really good barrel makers who supply replacement barrels for the Remmy 700
