    Went ahead and ordered a couple of the ones the Ebay seller had, figured for nine bucks and free shipping it wasn't worth my time to rummage through hardware store drawers. I'm kind of more concerned about it resulting in too light a trigger pull,...

    So I bought a Winchester model 70 Heavy Varmint (push feed) rifle in .308 a while back for just cast bullet target shooting, figured .30 caliber cast paper punching was most of what I was doing anyway, might as well have a dedicated rifle. The...

    Buggybuilder just posted an ad with a bunch of bullets and a mold for the .32-40, same bullets work well in the .32 Special in my experience. If you haven't already got dies, I have a good set of old Hollywood dies that work fine.

    Ok Mozz, here is what I did, maybe it will give you a few ideas. First off I wanted a sturdy bench, but since I didn't have access to a lot of tools I went the easy route since I was renting a place and really could not start putting a permanent...

    I use a NOE 45 grain WFN design and I ordered mine with all plain bases. You can have the same bullet with checks and even hollow pointed if you so desire. That bullet in front of two grains of Bullseye in my Savage 219 is a Fox squirrel killing...

    Perhaps, but I will say I have made this observation; there are two cartridges that are very attractive to guys who want to push the envelope and try to make it something it is not, the .45-70 is the main one and the .22 Hornet is a close second. ...

    I'd kind of like to find a 340 with a bad barrel and turn it into a bolt action .38-55.

    Koger, yes the brass and the cleaning is no doubt the biggest down side to black for most. If I didn't own a wet/pin/SS tumbler I might do less myself. Here's some of my days loading. Lee's .515 dia. 450 & 500 grain boolits being cast. ...

    Kroger, you might try taking that plains boolit and use pure lead and use some black powder instead of smokeless and see how it does too. The black and a pure soft plains boolit should fill the barrel just fine. It might just be another type of...

    This thread got me thinking about them. I pulled mine out of the closet yesterday and shot 40 rounds of 311466 and ten grains of Unique yesterday afternoon. Considering I haven't messed with it for a long time and all, it shot pretty well, though...

    I dabbled in cast shooting in a sporterized Swede, the rifle wouldn't shoot much of anything very well, so it went down the road. Recently, I jumped on the 6.5 Creedmoor bandwagon (sort of) with a Ruger American. That rifle shoots jacked very...

    As 1hole stated, discolored brass does not effect shooting much. I like my brass nice and clean cause it helps me spot any anomalies like a shiny ring around web area where case separation likes to occur, also on necks where splits occur. Primer...

    A guy has a Ponses Warren 10 gauge loader advertised locally for $275 I noticed today. I want a 10 gauge someday, almost tempted to get it as a hedge against that.

    454bore, Here's my 2cents worth. Save any shells you haven't already cut open to use them as they are. Either purchase some once fired plastic one piece hulls with integral base wad such as can be found in the Winchester AA trap shells or...

    I used a Lyman turbo tumbler for about 30 years. Got it shortly after I started reloading when I only did a few calibers. Did a pretty good job and other than the media dust, dealing with the primer pocket media debris, incomplete interiors, cost of...
