    See Post #10. Outpost is dead on. I have used my BP lube on smokeless and it is very,very accurate. One down side is in a revolver the gun is covered in residue after about 50 rounds. 40% bear oil/tallow and beeswax at 60% by volume. Soft in hot...

    I have shot a fair amount of Green Dot under cast 200 swc, H&G 68 style. My load came from some old load manuals so you will have to decide how to proceed. The best accuracy came in at 4.5 grains with my alloy around 14 brinell. I used Lee scoops...

    thks T-Bird, I haven't thought about that. The 4759 is faster than 4198 and I have never been a fan of 4198 in 30's compared to 4759 and 5744 and 2400. I will grab some H335 and might try 4895 speed range powders. Good catch, Thanks Tony

    We have shot a lot of magma 160 swc. This weight range is short for caliber and has to be pushed a little harder than say a 185 or 200. Our mim. target load is 4.6 grains of Bullseye and accurate out to 50 yds. Other fast pistol powders work as...

    My 311291 throws a .301 nose and will not chamber in any one of my 4-30-30's. It shoots MOA at 100 out of 3 30-06's I have. great boolit if it fits. 311041 will chamber in two rifles,crimped in the crimp groove, and two require crimping about half...

    White Eagle I wish I had time to do that. Between work and all the whatevers I split my time between the pot and the trigger, LOL. I was just hoping I could get that flat nose to work. It would be okay in a factory rifle I'm sure, but I wanted to...

    updated range report: I had to size the flat point bullet down to .309 to allow a longer OAL. Still not engraving the nose but will engrave the driving band. The throat or freebore is longer than I thought. That boolit is not going to work in this...

    Lube is commercial carnuba red, a little harder than Glenn's regular. I sized to .313 because on the 314299 pointed it engraved the nose and front driving band. The Flat nosed version at .313 does not engrave the nose just the driving band. Do you...

    38 special hands down, so many molds and powders it could keep you busy for a long time. Second is the 30-30 from mild to wild, and also lots of molds to choose from on it also. Tony

    I am looking for a simple to make softer than my normal alloy(95.3-2.3-2.6) for 30-06/200 flat nose and 30-30/150 flat nose, all wearing gas checks. I tried the aka-50/50 plus 2, but could only get about 3 to 4 shots before group busting leading...

    I have cast a lot of large boolits in both pure lead and alloy's. Ladle casting is tough on long boolits. I drilled the spout of an RCBS ladle to allow the lead more head pressure and volume out of the ladle. Pressure casting also worked good. The...
