    Gunsmithing
    I own a S&W model 19-3 revolver that I reload for. I go as often as I can to the range to test out my recipes. For the last couple of months, I have been getting the occasional misfire due to light strikes on the primer. I am using CCI 500 brand primers. I know they are light strikes because...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Ran into something I have never had happen before in 40 years of shooting. I just finished building a .300 BLK. Took it out for a test fire using Remington UMC 120gr OTFB Supersonic ammunition. The rifle fired well. However, after picking up my brass, I noticed a full 70% of the brass was...

  8. Reloading Question

    Shotguns, Shotgunning, and Shotshell Reloading
    I have been reloading my shells for Skeet and Trap for about a year now with no problems. I wanted to load up some #4 buck for home defense and started looking at recipes. Which brought about a few questions. 1. What is the difference in a Fed 209 primer and a Winchester 209. All of the...
  9. Old Primer Box

    Muzzleloaders
    I was wondering if anyone, familiar with antique firearms, might recognize and be able to tell me something about this primer box. It is thin brass, compression fitting top and is quite worn.
