    that is about all I use anymore for brass that wasn't fired in my gun. Running as much range brass as I do I get to see a lot of big chambers. I have a set of carbide Dillons and a set of RCBS... both SB dies. I even have a SB .30-06 sizer with the neck cut out so I can do everything else if necessary....use it more or less as a body die only.

    One of the specifics of the Akai 2011 I was looking to purchase on Friday didn't pan out. The seller was under the impression that he had one thing, but the builder confirmed something different.

    I took the Edge (with the Blackdog parts installed) out to the range on Friday afternoon. I was easily able to zero the gun at 25 yards, but I had one instance of hammer follow and 2 instances of doubling/bump firing when doing Bill drills at 7 yards. I swapped all of the stock parts back in, except for the grip and sear spring, and I also fitted a new safety. I still need to install the grams guts and TTI basepads to the 3 stock mags that came with the gun, and test everything before the match this coming Saturday.

    On Saturday, I stripped down my press, cleaned and lubed it, then re-assembled it and converted it from 9mm to 40. I've loaded 8-10K on it since the last cleaning.







    Yesterday morning, I verified that all the settings were correct and loaded 500 rounds of 40.

    my buddy has been using graphite instead of grease on his.. around the shell plate...still greasing the fitting on the bottom...says powder spills are easier to just blow out

    But, you only have to clean them once every 17 years .
    The only reason to disarm a man is to force him to do something that you couldnít force him to do if he was armed.

    It's not that easy to swallow when you're shooting 10K+ rounds per year.

    I'm sure you can handle it. It's so worth it when you can smoothly crank out 1000+ rounds per hour.

    makes sense and cents for you to reload, me, not so much...don't shoot as much anymore

    you are averaging about 30 rounds a day, 365 days
