    Only one reason to slug a revolver barrel and that's to know that it's at or a tick smaller than the throats. Boolits should be sized to a mild snug fit in the "throats". Slug your throats and size accordingly. Rick

    Welcome to CastBoolits BKB, I suggest your next step in the journey to be load those boolits without any sizing & pan lube, that or a larger sizer die. Should help with results on target and with any possible leading. Rick

    Yeah well, the factory's have "screwed up" in the past too, there are recalls all the time. Perhaps we just shouldn't shoot whenever there is no one to "blame". Rick

    That's just plain silly. There are several people that I know well enough I wouldn't give a second thought for shooting their hand loads and have numerous times. Rick

    Yes but the difference is small in most cases. A larger boolit (say 45 Cal & up) will give more increase than will a small caliber boolit such as 22. You can get some info on this here . . . http://lasc.us/CastBulletNotes.htm Rick

    The percentage of antimony (Sb) determines the amount of shrinkage upon cooling. A high Sb percentage will yield a larger diameter boolit than will a lower percentage from the same mold. Rick

    Yep, huge difference! I always refer to it as handloaders and reloaders. Rick

    Hhmmm . . . That was you huh? You should have left a message. The phone number that just called here was from West Virginia. I get 8-10 solicitation calls every day and thus I NEVER answer calls from un-known area codes. Rick

    Well Mike, the first thing that has to be decided is what type of event you wish to put on. Are you looking for a "match"? Or . . . Are you looking for a cast boolit get together, socializing, meeting & making new friends? Nothing wrong...

    Same here, an NRA sticker on your vehicle marks you as someone that is more likely to have a firearm in the vehicle and there is no shortage of idiots with the intent to find out. Rick

    If that's the case then I recommend a different range. If it has to be run as a competitive match with hard set categories and a bible for a rule book it will severely limit both the attendance and the intent of the event. I'm not trying to say what...

    Bruce is 110% correct. If you want to have a military match then have that but if you want max attendance and max guns fired per shooter with emphases on fun then the rule books must go. When I started the Extravaganza I made it "shoot what ya...

    Perhaps so but if it weren't for the NRA right now today YOU would NOT own a single legal firearm. That's reality! How much of someone elses money is that worth to you? I take it your not an NRA member so whatever they make a year is someone elses...

    I look at the NRA as a necessary evil. Without them you can rest assured that not a single one of us would own any legal firearm and we wouldn't have for many years now. Yeah, I get pretty tired of constantly getting hit on for more money but...

    Without antimony (Sb) pure lead will never age harden no matter how long you wait. Sb is required for age hardening or quenching/oven heat treating to gain any hardness. Pure lead will be the same hardness/strength once it cools off as it will be...

    I gotta agree with Dean, the RCBS 35-200 has been an outstanding boolit in every 35 bore I've run it through, even 357m revolver. I've several 35 molds but it seems once a load is settled on it uses the RCBS 200. Since you mentioned hunting I...
