Be careful about cartridge overall length when setting up your dies. Short rounds up the pressure and can give you false groups. Long rounds don't chamber very well and can cause problems. Good luck and have fun. It's a brave new world you are about to enter.

I liked my lee until Phil turned me onto the Lyman, it is great.

Cole let me know if you need a hand primer and I will send you one of my extras.
I mentioned Lee because they are pretty cheap and my only usage is bullet removable and an occasional Jeff load,however I do prefer their Die sets over RCBS

Sorry Rob, I was referring to the hand priming tools. Lee does make good dies as far as I’ve used. Their crimp dies are great

Their later hand prime tools are kinda crappy but I do use their early models

I’ve used C&H, Lee, RCBS, Hornady and maybe a couple of other brands of dies, but my current preference is Redding. I still prefer the old model of Lee hand primer, but you can no longer get replacement parts, so I’m looking for a new replacement.
I use 2 presses. A Lyman turret for 300WM and down and a Lee Classic for big stuff with their quick release, pulling bullets and miscellaneous operations.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
