Yeah, I've got one brand new one, unused, if you want it. I thought the .50 might have been BMG .50 but apparently not. The CheyTac cartridge won't fit up into it. BTW, like the screen name. LOL.

I spent six months in DC back in 2006 and wandered up to Frederick a few times. Seemed like a nice place to live.

This cartridge is unusually fat since it's almost identical to the .505 Gibbs. Thanks in advance for any info.
I have an arbor press that I use to push the primer out with an expanding/decapping rod from a 7RM die. I use a metal "cap" with a hole in it and I place the 375 brass on top of this. I also use this setup to decap military crimped 50s.
