Re: New member

Yeah, my .300 Savage has a Remington installed recoil pad and it's still quite lively on the shoulder of your humble correspondent. .35 Rem is no daisy either.

Re: Buffalo arms 30 Rem for sale

And as to reloading, I now have everything I need to reload .30 Rem since my .30 Rem trim/form die came in. Midway has them as well as the die sets. I promised myself I'd only take up one weird caliber a year so I'll have to wait till next year to take up .35 Rem.

Re: Buffalo arms 30 Rem for sale

Aaaaannnd, they're sold out!

Hmmm, looks like they raised the price right before it sold out. $60 per box and $54 per if 5 or more bought. When I ordered, 10 days ago, it was $50 a box and $45 if 5 or more.

Re: Is this a good book on reloading?

RCBS will work in Lee machines. They were designed for single stage loading and using them in a progressive machine, a Dillon for example, takes a little thought. For instance, I use the seating die to seat only and have a separate crimp die so as to not over stress the brass.
