This forum to the rescue.

After perhaps 8 or 9,000 successful reloads, I was having a problem with the press. It started when my 17 year old grandson wanted to learn how to use it. He wasn't always running full stroke, and damaged the indexing flipper. I installed a new one, but could not get the press to work. :? After an e...

Re: WTB 45ACP Dies

My "I'll only buy 9mm's" rule has gone bust. I recently picked up a Springfield 1911 and a Ruger P90. I have a shell plate, I only need a set of dies. Thought I'd try here before I order from Midway. You will also need a Large Pistol Primer assembly . If you have been loading 9mm , you pr...

Actually, no. Nothing wrong with it, I just found a DeSantis Triple Threat that I like better. If I can figure out where I put it, I'll make you a good deal. Unfortunately, we just redid my office and I seem to have misplaced it.

I'd love a copy of the plans. I have a great fabrication shop just up the road. I've been wanting to redo my bench. sidecarmike at charter dot net.
I'm on broadband, so can handle a big file.

Thanks

I found an airgun ahop online that has parts for my old 312. Now it will have a new safety and the correct rear sight. The parts are expensive though. 48 bucks for the couple little parts I ordered, but my old rifle will be back to the way it was before. They have parts for the pistol also. They ha...

Yes, it's CO2. I bought it in 1980, but the box had a half inch of dust on it when I bought it. They made them from 1971-1980, then sold the rights to Daisy. Daisy offered it as a Model 780. I even have the original sealed pellets. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y14/SidecarMike/Shooting/100_3306.j...

.... I bought it about 1970 for the closeout price of 29.95 if I remember correctly.That was a junk of change back then. From what I understand it's worth far more than that now. That's what I gave for my S&W 78G. I remember people thinking I was nuts to spend that much on a pellet gun http://i...

Thanks, I will check that site out. Are there any parts that are going to come flying out or anything like that, or is it straight forward. Use my trick. Get a gallon sized ziplock bag, put the gun in it, stick your hands in and disassemble. If something goes boing, it won't go far. Maybe you can f...

Haven't worked on a Benj, but I've done a number of Crossmans and a Smith & Wesson. Usually nothing but o rings and an occasional felt seal. Old Benjamins were known for leather seals. That is a good thing. Usually a generous application of neatfoot oil is all that is required to bring it back. ...

I got a copy and it is really nice. Thank you for making this available to us. I am also able to use it in Access 2007. I guess I was wrong. When I try to save a load, I get an error saying; "An expression in argument 2 has an invalid value" "You tried to run a macro or used the DoCm...

If I may make a suggestion? It would be nice to search loads by component. For example, I have a couple thousand 115 grain semi-wadcutters on hand. I'd like to know what kind of loads I have entered using them with various powders. It appears the only search option is to already know the number of t...
