    AMP DIY Alternatives - Induction Annealing

    Yes, you would need both. Not sure if the controller has a timer. If it does buying both of those might work. not an expert one these was just looking to see if I could see a very cheap alternative. Not quite cheep enough for me though. but if you look around that site you can just basically get the board for 20 quid.

    Neck sizing vs full sizing question.

    Thanks I’ll take a look

    Neck sizing vs full sizing question.

    getting quite complicated now and probably down to a level I don’t have the stamina for. I’d probably start losing track going into this much detail. But baby steps, I’ll experiment with die insertion or maybe she’ll holders. I have never annealed, don’t really want to start as it looks expensive and more time consuming. we are probably heading into the realms of diminishing returns for my application. I don’t compete or anything, I shoot for fun, I do enjoy my bolt actions and plan to shoot more this year with them but PSG and lever actions take a lot of time.

    That makes sense also. Yes pretty simple.

    Neck sizing vs full sizing question.

    yes it does, thanks, makes sense Hornady match I think they are. Yes I’ve found the part numbers. I just need to measure my brass to work out was bushing I need.

    Neck sizing vs full sizing question.

    ok, lots talking about bumping the the shoulder back. How would one do that? I take it I’d wind the die back further from the case holder, but how far? to be honest, I can’t be doing much wrong, I’ve been shooting the same brass many many times, it’s still going strong. In my 308 it groups very well probably more by chance than anything else. I need to spend time working a load for my 6.5. Although it’s performed well at 600 meters groups not great at 100. Not as good as my 308 anyway. So I need to experiment. I have a fancy match die for that but didn’t realise you had to buy a separate part for the neck tensions so I keep using my cheap Lee die. I suppose I need to look there first before I look into bumping shoulders.

    Ball watches

    Ball are outstanding watches. little known outside of watch enthusiasts though. I used to collect watches before I collected guns

    Scenar vs Scenar L

    just a heads up for uk people. He refuses to ship to UK now. Copy paste from an email he sent me after refusing to sell me an order I placed and inquired why he wouldn’t fulfill the order. I see you mentioned the op is still Europe so you may know already. “it is still possible, but we will stop shipping to UK. Process will be to complicated in the future. We only ship to european countries which does not need documents or customs delcaration etc. Sorry.”
  14. Knocked up 50 6.5crdm and some 308. did some organising as my reloading room has got a bit out of hand, found the cases for my dies to put them away for a change and noticed both lee cases had neck sizing decapping dies. is there any down side to using these instead of full length sizing every time? Do I still need to use lube? thanks
  15. Hello all, don’t know much about them but my marlin is threaded. Thought it would be quite easy to find one but .578 x 28 doesn’t seem to be a thing in the UK. any ideas who I could speak to or look at. thanks.
