The wait for dies etc

The wait now is usually longer than it was several years ago. Doubtful it will get shorter, as the die makers get older will probably be longer. The list of die makers is not growing with an...

Reed bullets

Tparrish, I have had excellent results with Reeds bullets and everything else I bought from him over the years. Own and have owned several 14's. Would rather buy his than make them myself. Lot less...

Bullet making

I still make some for special bullets I can't buy, "But" usually buy bulk, pulling the handle on a bullet press is not as much fun as I get older. The price on bulk bullets looks better as I get...

25 acp

Brass for the 25 acp can vary a lot between manufacturers and lots. Enough to cause groups to be larger than I like. I buy new brass in bulk of same manufacturer, same lot. It helps a lot. Buying...

Breaker at machine

Breaker at machine does not cut off power between that breaker and main panel, just to that machine. Speculation as to why fire started, wires shorted in conduit etc is just that. The building could...

TJ liners

They are hammer forged, do a 17 and are exceptional. Have used liners in different calibers from 17 to 56 rifled and smooth bore from different companies. TJ's liners make extremely accurate...

Why not pull the bullets

With no die in press, put round in shell holder. Run up through press, using wire stripper grab bullet just above case neck. Lower round holding bullet and letting stripper rest on press. Will pull...

22/32 S&W long etc

Have played with 22/32 S&W long for years. Built first as kid years ago. Wanted a round equal or better than 22 mag that could be reloaded. It is better in many ways and extremely accurate. The 22's...

Corbin dies

The extra cost of moving your order ahead with Corbin in years past was paying for them to be done on over time. Your order wasn't moved ahead of others that had been waiting. It was done after hours...

Rebarreled one to 243

Got one years ago from friend in 308. Rebarreled it to 243 for a truckgun. It is butt ugly but shoots everything we have ran through it extremely well. Love the old gun for what it was put together...

No Zombies

Give your finished case O.D. and length . Could use to make reamer and dies. Will look for reamer I used to make heeled bullet swage dies. May revisit rim to centerfire rounds as time permits. Having...

My apologies Sir

Been awhile since I have taken time to read this thread through. I was thinking you were going all the way to 22 long rifle case size. I'm guilty of not keeping up and making uninformed comments. Had...

Missing the point

He is making a centerfire 22 that fits a 22 long rifle chamber. I have the reamers to do 25 acp cases to 22 through 14 caliber. The 22/25 acp may duplicate his round ballistically but requires...

Bullet making

I haven't made the subcaliber bullets for myself in several years. Berger doesn't make the short J4 jacket cups for 17's that made the really good 14's. Longer cups requires more trimming as cups...

Reeds 14's

Noticed he said that before about Reeds bullets. That they were over size or something? Never had any problems with them in old .142 barrels or .144 barrels. Have shot a lot of different 14 caliber...

222 brass

That is good to know, have been thinking about building a 222. Wish they would do 218 bee brass, their 32/20 brass is great and makes really good 25/20 brass. Love their brass in everything I have...

Original topic

OK, if you are going to call B.S. then be specific and explain. Eley is for a fact one of the most consistent rimfire ammunitions made. Their quality control is amazing. So is the match ammo most...

Factory rimfire ammo question

Sir, I answered it in first few words. Eley is one of the most consistent rimfire ammunitions made. Sorting it is a waste of time. There is enough match ammunition made by enough companies to find...

Rim fire ammo

I like Eley for 22 long rifle and 17 HM-2 if I'm trying to shoot tight groups, but most of the rimfire shooting I do unsorted factory ammo is fine. Rugers are not first choice for match grade groups,...
