    I'd list it on your local craigslist as a rare item and get one of the local mall ninja's to come pick it up and move on.

    I generally seat the swc types so that the front drive band is flush with the case mouth. I know that ain't how every body else does it, but I don't have short chambering rounds either.

    had a vaquero and another one with 1 digit more in the serial number back before I let my dad talk me out of them. I have only had one 40 caliber mold, the magma engineering 38-40 rnfp mold. the SIL uses it in his 40 weak now.

    Note* everything I load with lead is kept below 1000fps. that could be where we differ in the opinion. generally diameter and shape are king of how things work, but it depends on the launch. I don't shoot much of my lead below 1,000 fps except...

    if it's a random issue and you have eliminated the cases being mixed, or different lengths etc. then I would look at the boolit itself. you might just have one cavity that isn't quite closing all the way and it is a bit larger in the exposed...

    all those little notched pieces have a letter on the end of them. the notch lined up on a bar to make the letters line up into words. the type setter would lay it all out. when I buy lino-type from our print shop here it comes as spacers or the...

    key holing is a function of stability. your either spinning the boolit fast enough to be stable or you ain't. the grip on the rifling will determine whether your spinning the boolit enough or not. too small = skidding and non stabilization. ...

    Jim that's more like what I use. over speeding a large meplated boolit into flesh and bone will give you a very dead animal. you'll have to look for some of the parts and pieces but it will be dead. I remember hitting a grouse too far down when...

    the white is lead oxide it generally forms from being exposed to water. I do a lot of term storage of normal lubed boolits, 5 gallon buckets do a great job. if I were to put some stuff up for true long term storage I would just do a coat of...

    I probably shop a bit weird. if stuff is on sale I calculate how much we could use by the expiration and buy that much. we might go to 2-3 different stores when we are down in town and sometimes go back to the first to pick up those 3-4 things...

    'up to' depends on too much for the alloy alone to dictate that. up to 2700 is easy. up to 2200 and hitting the target is another story. I worry more about absolute fitment and manipulate my alloys towards that end rather than an final bhn. a...

    Time. things happen over time. 1 they reached their final BHN. 2 antimonial alloys can grow larger slightly over time. the other possibility is the tumble coating was just enough increase to make them work.
