.327 Federal mag primers

I am getting ready to start loading some .327 Fed mag ammo because I finally have some brass and according to Federals website they use small rifle primers. I have been loading .32 H&R mag ammo for my Ruger .327 Fed mag SP101 and have been using small pistol primers and have several thousand small p...

I have had a 9mm EMP for a while that I also wanted for carry for a long time and when I got mine the trigger was pretty heavy and I understand that is inherent with SA pistols. I went ahead and took mine to a gunsmith that worked it over and it is smooth and is at 3 1/2 pounds with my Lyman gauge. ...

I use the Thumbler's Tumbler Model B with the stainless steel media. It gets the brass clean and shiny like brand new brass both inside and outside including the primer pocket. The media is a little expensive but it will probably last two lifetimes. http://www.stainlesstumblingmedia.com/

I use G66 on everything. When I made a move from Missouri to Colorado I sprayed my hand guns and long guns with G66 and wrapped them in newspapers and boxed the up. When I unboxed them about 6 years later they were just like I packed them. Works for me.

If you are looking at a .380 you might want to take a look at the CZ83.
I have the nickel .380 and it has been fool proof. It's easy to take down and clean and I haven't found anything it won't eat including several different reloads. It's typical CZ quality at a reasonable price.

I use a J-Point red dot on a couple of my pistols and a Burris FastFire on another pistol and a Henry lever. They serve the old eyes pretty well along with being small and light weight. Both Mfgrs. have mounts that fit a lot of different dovetails. http://i199.photobucket.com/albums/aa214/jrayb95/Fo...

I don't have the Chargemaster but I do use the RCBS digital scale. I use the Lee Perfect Powder Measure set to the load I want less .1 gn. then trickle to the actual load. This makes a very accurate load with very consistent results. The cost for this setup is not very expensive but is for quality l...

Thanks blue,

I'll have to give them a try because that's all I have right now until

LP Primers

I went to pick up some LP Primers today and the only ones available were Remington. I normally use CCI or Federal and have never used Remington. Are there any CONS that anyone is aware of with the Remy's?
Thanks,

I use the Lee Classic Cast single stage press with Lee carbide dies and use Hornady locking rings after initial adjustment and don't have to readjust. Just remove and replace.
Works great for me. Seems like I have more time than money.
