    One of the boxes has a manual with an ad for the 45 edition Lyman's Reloading manual. The publication date for that is apparently 1970. :eek3:

    I think the RCBS stuff is newer and the Lee auto-prime is more recent (though still pre-internet).

    I still need to get some stuff to complete a basic setup, and definitely some manuals.

    The dies are .44 Mag and .22-250 Rem :)rofl:). I have no use for them at the moment.

    Holy shit, it's the same RCBS single stage press my FIL has! We use it and a Rockchucker when we reload. It's a good little press.
     
  3. It means you have to build a .22-250 now.

    That fucker has an impressive concussion wave/blast. Earlier in the summer, a guy at the range was shooting his and on the first shot, the dandelions six feet from the table lost their seeds. Neat to see it ripple through the grass

    I've already bought a AR lower for 6.5 Creedmor. I don't need TWO wildcat chambered rifles. :mamoru:
     
  6. Neither the 6.5C or the .22-250 are wildcats.

    A wildcat is something for which there is not commercially available ammunition. (or at least not commonly available) The 6.5C is available enough that it's hard to call it a wildcat, and the .22-250 is very commonly available.

    I was reading about the round on wikipedia. It pushes a 55gr round to 3786 fps and 1751 ft * lbf.

    right on!
    I inherited all of my dad's equipment. He bought it when he was in high school.
    Most of it is from the mid 60's
    It gets the job done!

    This came from an uncle. I'm going to make him some .44 Mag and give them to him for Christmas.

    There's a Savage in a McM A2 chambered in 22-250AI that might be snagged cheap on ARFCOM currently.

    I'm telling you this, only because it's twisted 1-12.

    The reason why I got a second single stage was because we only reload together so having a 550 would sort of defeat the purpose. This way, we can setup for different calibers and shoot the shit as we do menial stuff like depriming. However, we designated the Rockchucker for bottleneck cases as the leverage system is alot better.

    You got it wrong you need a progressive press with a bullet feeder. Then you have a free arm for the beer.

    My .22-250 is my favorite rifle for obliterating whatever I'm killing.
