    Looking under the bed ain't just 4 kids

    So this is why I keep a Tac 14 next to the bed. Actually, I'm a dead man in that scenario. My hearing is so bad now that I can't hear them rattle anymore. Confirmed recently on the early dove opener.
  3. Southern Xpress. Actually did it while my dad waited there. We shot it last weekend, turned out great.
  4. I have several of the Lee case length gauge trimmers. They work well and are cheap. I have had issues with two of them but Lee made right with warranty. I somehow got a cutter with no threads in it, they sent me a new one. I got a 7.62x39 gauge that trimmed too short right out of the package, again they replaced it with minimal effort on my part. These are great until you get into quantities like hundred or more. I have taken to using the Lee quick trim on most of my straight walled cases. I have the power adapter but have never used it. I have a WFT 2 from Little Crow and adapters for all of my necked cases. It works well also. I thought it was awesome until I got the Frankford case prep center. It actually works better. You really have to watch for shavings in the WFT that will vary your length. The Frankford seems to clear the shavings better and give more consistent results with less double and triple checking. I was going to get individual WFT's for my more heavily used calibers so I didn't have to fiddle with changing the bushings as often but I canned that plan when I got the Frankford. Having the rest of the tools right there already spinning saves a lot of time too. I also have a Lyman universal and ordered extra pilots that it didn,t come standard with and the power adapter. All of that still sits new in the box too.
  5. Got it done, thanks guys.

  7. My pop is ready to screw a .45 Raptor barrel into a Savage model 10 receiver and drop it into a MDT chassis. For some odd reason, the shops in Tucson are turning him away. They say that they either don't have the time or the tools. Who can recommend a Phoenix smith for him?

  14. Pima college is a good idea, thanks. My drill press is part of the problem, even when I just chuck a drill bit it wobbles. Not a precise machine at all. I usually do get to Phoenix at least once a week for work and I do have a customer near Sky Harbor. PM coming Thanks guys
  15. I have been playing with LeGandre (side) crimps on my 450 Bushmaster and .45 Raptor handloads and have seen enough to convince me that I want all of my loads for these two calibers and probably 45 Colt in the lever guns to include them. Back in the olden days... like 3 years ago, if you wanted a side crimp on a straight walled .45 caliber case, you would buy a Lee Factory crimp die in 45-70 or .45 Colt and cut it down to put the crimp lower than the case mouth on whatever cartridge you were working with. If you are fancy, you cut the die way down and use shims to move the crimp up or down and match the cannelure to seating depth on whatever bullet you choose. Nowadays, Lee sells a 450 Bushmaster factory crimp die and a 460 S&W (parent of 45 Raptor) factory crimp die. I found that the 450BM die puts the crimp on a 45 Raptor case just about where I want it most of the time. I cut down the 460 S&W die to be adjustable with shims which I have. I did this by jamming a 375 H&H case into the crimp jaws and chucking it in a drill press, holding a dremel with a cut off wheel to it as it went round and round. I have a cheap drill press, I don't have the most steady hands or straight eye. It works well but there is a problem. I didn't get the cut straight on the die, Its functional but I would like to clean it up. I just need enough material removed to square the cut on the collet, if too much is removed, I will need to trim the body as well. This is why I don't trust me to attempt it. Anywho, can someone square a cut for me? I can separate the collet from the die body easily. If you are local to Tucson I will meet up wherever.
