+1 on the annealing recommendation. If you still get cracks, try annealing "more" i.e. to a higher temperature. If the metal is glowing a visible dull red in low light, that is about the right...

The 3 howa minis I have are all quite nice, especially for the price. The actions are straight, smooth and well made. The triggers are good too. The main complaint is the rubber stock and plastic...

One potential problem with a really nice/expensive rifle is you might be reluctant to use it. If accuracy is what you want, a nice barrel on a 'beater' rifle might get it done. Something that...

I use postimg.org but whatever you use keep copies of your pictures on your computer. I think a lot of people only had their stuff on photobucket and lost it (or had to pay to get it back). These...

I would use induction--much better control than a torch. If you are getting brass already formed then you may not need to anneal for several firings. Are you getting split necks?

Induction works pretty well for the small/short stuff. It's particularly good for WSSM where with a torch you'd have to pretty much cook the whole case before the neck gets soft. There are various...

My advice for hornet loading:

The brass is thin, so it can collapse if you try to seat a bullet and the neck is bent or too small, peened over, etc. You should not need to anneal. If you just...

I have the Warne rails on my Minis and they are pretty straight (sample size of 4). I've seen some rails that were significantly warped and needed to be sent back or bent straight. I think Warne...

I've used them in my 243ack and they hold up fine at 4200fps. I'm not sure what twist the barrel is but it's not very fast. With a brake there is no recoil, and on rodents the show through the...

Most people who hand load have sensitive scales. What if you take a fired primer, pull out the anvil, clean out the residue, then weigh the cup?

Magazine length can be an issue. Also the rim on the hornet doesn't help. Most hornet magazines only hold a few rounds. The ruger holds 6, which is the most I've seen, but it's short. My...

I had a tight twist 224 krieger that would consistently pop heavy match bullets in a 223WSSM. Changed it out for an even tighter 5R and the same bullets work fine. So the theory is that the sharp...

This is not necessarily true. The Howa Mini uses r700 bases, and it is much smaller than a r700.
