I’m curious about the Whidden blackout trim die. It’s $60 where the Dillon is close to $190 (with tool head). Will the Whidden make the conversion or will a rough cut be necessary? Also need to know if their die will work with the Dillon tool head and vacuum setup.
I can’t see any reason to spen $190 if $60 will do.
I'm getting ready to start reloading 357mag for a carbine rifle. I've got some Magnus 158gr JSP's (J-119) and I'll be using H110. Hodgdon's data shows that with a Hornady 158gr XTP the starting load is 15gr and max is 16.7 at COL of 1.580. I think I'll follow this being that it's the closest data to the Magnus bullet I can find. Does anyone load Magnus bullets? All advice welcome. Thanks. Her's a pic of the XTP and the Magnus J-119.
I recently received some empty aluminum 9mm cases in a batch of misc. brass. I don't see why these can't be reloaded, but I've personally never heard of anyone actually doing it. Anyone have experience or potential issues I should be aware of? Thanks in advance.
I did a brief search on this but came up empty. My apologies if it's already been discussed.
