The Longbranch / Obsolete rimfires talk Facebook group
« Last post by ndnchf on Today at 06:29:31 AM »
For those on Facebook. FYI - The 32 Rimfire talk group has expanded to include all obsolete rimfires. A great place to discuss all those long forgotten dust gatherers and get them shooting again.

For another data point I measured the lifter protrusion on mine .166". It functions flawlessly. Perhaps the trough is a little deeper on yours. From the top of the lifter to the bottom of the trough, mine measures 1.010".

DJ - good idea on the dummy round. I'm new to Ballards, so not sure how much contact the firing pin has. I have several rimfire rolling blocks, they seem to hit the rim with no problem.

Youre right it shouldnt. The positioning of the markings suggests they are from the machining process.

Haven't done a .46 rimfire, but played with the commercial Spencer rimfire cases a little.  I could never get them to go off, because the firing pin hits so close to the edge of the rim that it missed the rim of the .22 blank, but it sure beat the heck out of the edge of the rim of the case.  Some rimfire firing pins (No 4 Rolling Block, for instance) have a larger footprint.  I'm not familiar with the details of the Ballard, so it might not be an issue.

If I were working this project up I would make up a dummy case and see where the firing pin hits so I could plan on how to make up the cases.
The Powder Room - CAS reloading / I BROKE MY PRESS!!
« Last post by Coffinmaker on Yesterday at 07:59:44 PM »

 :)  Oh NO Mr. Bill!!  ;)

Yep.  Broke my Dillon.  First up for bids, I was having trouble getting my 650 to prime.  Took it apart as it appeared the turret wasn't indexing properly.  It was.  Seems the primer feed was out of alignment and needs adjusting.  40 Minutes down the Tubes.

Then there was a big BANG and it locked up SOLID.  No move.  Took forever to get it apart enough to move again.  With no cases in the press, ran perfect.  With cases, it locked solid.  Then I noticed the De-Capping pin looked a little wonky donkey.  Ah Ha says I.  Bent De-Capping pin.  I have those on hand.  To take the die apart, you have to remove the little "E" clip that holds the Decapper.  OK.


That little ring disappears into the ether.  I think it's still in the shop.  Somewhere.  With the Dust Bunnies.  Those, I don't have on hand.  Canabalize says I.  I have many tool heads.  Back in business.  Finished the run but found there was damage to the station 1 case feed plate.  Don't have one of those either.

Hot message to Dillon (Can't call.  Have to message).  A new "E" clip and plate will be sent Monday (Happy Ending).  Monday I will also call Dillon Sales and order a package of "E" clips and an extra feed plate or three.

Stay Safe Out There.

Scene now fades to black
