Would anyone make a 20 gauge shotgun barrel that was 26” for anything but improved cylinder? Skeet?
Apparently that 156 in the top pick indicates the gun was manufactured in January 1956, which is consistent with that serial number.
There is a...
Is there some place else to look for choke indicator markings?
These are the only markings I find?
I just bought a Merkel 20 ga. O/U for $3,500. Looks to be in excellent condition.
I bought it from a gun estate middleman who goes to estate...
We’ll see. This is virgin Starline brass I’m flaring.
Problem solved! Patent your design and offer it to Lee for $$$.
Have you informed Lee of this?
I thought I read this tug was by design?
Well, no one addressed whether that final tug from the Lee expander die could do any damage to my Redding turret press? I’m thinking about turret...

JOB WELL DONE LEE !
Redding, you’ll be...
Well right now guys, advantage Lee over Redding (believe it or not)! I have 2 brand spanking new taper crimp dies, 1 from Lee and 1 from Redding....
Not a fan of Lee Precision? My man FortuneCookie45 (a.k.a., Steve) really likes Lee’s dies. Especially their factory crimp die.

At ~1050 FPS, that seems more like a 38 Special load than a 357. I’d expect a minimum of 1300 FPS to qualify as a 357 load.
These rounds had a light crimp, certainly nothing excessive.

I was getting around 1050 FPS on my...
