    Varget and the .223/5.56

    For critter control, you may want to try Hornady's 50gr vmax or 53gr vmax over a load of Ramshot TAC. My 26" 1:9 prefers Varget under the 68s and 75s HPBTs. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Here's a couple of oldies. 1894 Winchester 32WS (1923) on left and 1892 Winchester (1913), originally chambered in 25-20, but factory re-barreled to 218 Bee. My great grandfathers rifles. Have a couple more oldies here also Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    You are correct, Sears has a small brass catch. Both cans of gun oil still have a bit left in them. The kits stay on an upper shelf in the reloading room. Thank you for helping bring back some wonderful memories! Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    And this one. Both kits belonged to my father and very possibly my grandfather. I'm hoping to pass them down to my grandchildren someday. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    COLLECTING BRASS AT THE RANGE

    I help out the range master on Saturday and Sunday mornings. We pick up enough brass to keep any reloader supplied. Most folks are shooting factory ammo. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk
  9. Very nice write up! On the hornady 68s non-cannelured, try 24.8-25.0 Varget and REM 7 1/2 or 205m primers. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    New to reloading

    You're on the road to a good addiction. Single stage press is sufficient for starting out. I would highly recommend getting the Dillon swager and take a look at the Giraud tri-way trimmer. A primer pocket swage gauge will come in handy also. If you're loading for an AR, small base dies. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Case Trimmers

    Take a look into the giraud tri-way. I have one each for 223 and 308. Indexes off the shoulder. Trim, chamfer and debur at same time. Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    De crimping Military ctg

    I picked up a Dillon 600 swager in a second hand setup I got. Once I get a good rhythm going, it's pretty quick. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    WFT?

    Have been pondering the investment myself. Torn between the WFT or the Giraud tri-way. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    An the loading bench is nearly operational

    Looking good! What's the size of your bench top? I picked up a solid core door the other day from work. It was going to be thrown out till I got it. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk
