    Ordered one from Midway today. It's for the 35 Remington I bought from a member here. I have some Missouri Bullet Hi-Teck to load up. I have tried the NOE expanders but like the Lyman die better.

    The NOE expanders are nifty- esp if an M expander isn't available in the specific diameter needed. But I agree that I like the regular M-style expander dies better (Lyman, RCBS, Redding, etc).

    Ha-ha... bang stick... that's what they use in these parts to smack a gator on the head and terminate him.

    I wonder if that's what happened to the poor critter that made it onto my plate of fried gator. :eat:

    New to me but not exactly new. It is an older rifle, the serial number dates it as built in 1962.
    Taken with a crappy cell phone.

    That's REALLY cool. Congratulations!

    Like the saying goes. Real guns are made of blued steel and hardwood.

    Thank you.

    I like them all. The newer black evil guns clear back to the old steel and iron guns.

    I have put a few rounds of Hornady's 200 gr. Leverlution ammo through it. I haven't tested for accuracy yet but it does a number on a water filled milk jug!
