    NorthMoccasin thanks for the info on loading your 9.3x74R. I also have a No. 1 in 9.3x74R. I am new with this caliber. I just shot it twice for the first time today. I purchased the rifle with sizing die, mold, dies, gas checks, and a new box of 50...

    15meter I hear you on the use of fillers and caution due to ringing a chamber or a barrel. I will say that I have fired many many loads of 5744 in my 505 Gibbs shooting a 525 grain boolit with about 1.5 gr on dacron fluffed out to fill the void...

    Caster of Lead (Roger). Great news on your wife. I will continue to pray for you both as you go through this trial. I understand completely when you say you don't know what you'd do without your wife. My wife and I have been together married over 50...

    15meter Thank you for the load info! I will do some calculating to see how that works out for me using your formula. I am with you on finding a cheaper powder. 5744 is some of the most expensive powder from what I have seen. I have some SR4759 that...

    15meter I have not fired a shot with my 9.3x74R as of yet. I have recently loaded up some j-words bullets for break-in on my Ruger No.1. I will do some careful measurements before I order a new mold for mine from Accurate. However I called and got...

    smoked turkey replied to a thread Curiosity in Cast Boolits
    I do basically the same way as you have listed with exception of case trimming. I measure case length and try to get a length that is below max that has a large number of cases. The longer cases go into a container with a note "needs trimming"....

    The "fake news" and "Trump bashing" is beyond belief to me. I can't and won't tolerate it. I cannot see why so many news networks, their people, as well as senators, congressmen, and governors seem to have to take an anti-American stance to oppose...

    smoked turkey replied to a thread Prayer request in Our Chapel
    Wayne, I totally understand about being hesitant to ask for prayer. I guess that pride sometimes causes our reluctance to ask for prayer on certain issues, but I also think that we men are just somewhat this way. That is not to say it is good to be...

    I've got a new caliber to feed. Loaded up a box of 9.3x74R stoked with 56 grains of IMR 4831 under a Hornady 286 gr. SP J-word bullet. I got a box of 50 of these bullets with the rifle. I plan to use them to do a barrel break-in of sorts and then I...

    Double good job. Sounds like you were a good boy scout who was prepared. Very nice trophy bobcat you took. I haven't made it out yet for alternate season. Hopefully Friday.
