    I've already sent him a letter. Been a week. Either he's sick or he might have passed away. I figured that if I could get someone local to him to maybe knock on his door, I could find out what happened to him. I don't think his wife or kids even...

    That's all I do when loading the 45/70 with Unique. The guy that had his gun blow up only loads with the Lee powder dippers and loads one case at a time, seating the bullet and crimping, before going to the next case. Been loading for 50 yrs. So...

    What do you think would have caused it? Wasn't a double charge as he weights all his loads, and he was using new winchester brass. Had to be the oversize bullets and the heavy crimp. I use the same load, but with a filler and I use a taper...

    Watched a guy shoot a trapdoor carbine with 11grs Unique powder. Dropped the loaded round in and fired. The powder moved down on the bullet in the case when tipped down for loading, upon firing blew the breech block out of the gun. With the 400 gr...

    mattw, if you like the 4895 sc powder, try aa2520 powder, it's a ball powder and meters well in powder measures. I use 26 grs 2520, under a 150 gr Ranchdog bullet, 1800 fps, very accurate in my Savage 340 c rifle. Burns very clean. Any of the...

    Just put a small piece of toilet paper or a pinch of dracon pillow stuffing on top of powder, just enough to hold the powder down on the primer. It's just to keep the powder from spreading out on the bottom of the case and maybe causing a SEE in...
