    Another little tid bit. Read post #8 and adjust accordingly but your final adjustment should be done AFTER the mold is up to casting temp. If you adjust a cold mold it will be different once up to temp. The advice to use a small piece of copper...

    Hhmmm . . . $6 huh? $6 will buy a whole quart of two cycle engine oil and that's all it is. A whole quart is probably about 3 lifetimes worth. Did a google search, here are 10 pages of threads on Bullplate substitutes. Bullplate substitutes ...

    Well, when ya get them back together get and use Bullplate on the bottom of the sprue and top of the mold. Prperly adjust the plate tension and you should have no more problems. Didn't a little bottle of Bullplate come with the new molds? Rick

    I agree with detox on the 4759. I use air cooled WW and the RCBS 180 gr seated to just kiss the lands, fine shooting combo. Rick

    You posted that 19 hours ago, I hope by now all he had is now in your possession. Even if you don't need all of it at $1 a pound you will have no problem making a profit on the rest. Rick

    No Brad, I didn't ask you to get a borescope, I simply mentioned how much I value mine and you seem to have interpreted that into gotta have. :mrgreen: If you do get one pop the money for the longer one. I was shooting primarily handgun and bought...

    When your in a shoot off for a revolver match win and you just fired and your spotter looking through a $700 scope says . . . If it was a 45 caliber you would have hit it, it was that close. Then you wonder how much uniforming flash holes and primer...

    Yes, I was talking about both. There are two sides to that hole in the case, think uniformity. Rick

    Several years ago I did a side by side comparison of regular primers and bench rest primers. All loads as identical as I could make them changing only the primer. Not a single group, not a single chrono result showed any difference at all between...

    Web contours? Conventional wisdom from the bench rest crowd is that you want flat, smooth primer pockets. I'm not familiar with the Redding pocket uniformer, I bout their case length trim machine a few years back and it turned out be complete...

    Oh yeah, I can say in all honesty that as good as the Sinclair tool is if I had to do it by hand it would never get done. 600 RPM in my brass prep machine is the only way. Here it is turning 414 Super Mag brass into proper 41 Mag but it...

    I would start with sizing a bit larger but without more info it's only a guess. If the leade into the rifling is anything like this photo you do need a throating reamer. While this isn't a 1911 type action (it's my Winchester 94 30-30) it is proof...

    For those that like to use a wood stick to stir and scrape the sides/bottom of the pot here's a word of warning. Your intent is to flux, i.e. clean the alloy however that stick will char under the surface, the charred pieces can/will flake off under...

    Yep, 4759 with heavier bullets has been my go to power for reduced loads in both the 308 and 30-30 for many years. While I wouldn't call 150 gr bullet bad accuracy wise I could never get the consistent groups that heavier bullets would give. The...

    Winchester did a 76 commemorative model 94 and a box of the same head stamped ammo came with it. In all probability that's the brass you have. Load it & shoot it or keep it as collector's item. Shame ya didn't get the rifle too. :mrgreen: Rick

    Didn't you say you were using 2% Sn WW alloy? If so I doubt adding more Sn would be the solution, if not trying adding enough to get it up to 2%. Might help answer that question huh? Rick

    Hhmmm . . . Wasn't aware of that. Best I can offer is that there must have been a reason for it. I seriously doubt it was done just for a lack of something better to do. Rick
