    I have no dog in this hunt, but was reading all of the comments, and thought I might be able to give a reasonable opinion. I have owned a 32 horse Kubota 4x4 with a loader, and it was shuttle shift. I did some mowing, bush hogging, grading, food...

    Mr Sheesh, the main reason I was advising safety is not for those of us who practice safe loading, but just as a reminder to folks who read these posts that may not even be part of the site. I shudder to think of some of the things we've seen come...

    I'm thinking resin or hot glue boolits would hold together, not separate. Since we do most forms of reloading here I think we are pretty safe to keep investigating the wood capsule/sabot loads. God Bless, and One Love. GoodOlBoy

    That question has been bugging me since I first saw them. I would suspect (but won't know until I can deconstruct a round or two) that there would be some kind of wadding in the base. Can it be? Certainly on a newly made round it CAN be, and I...

    I like the Lee HB 405, it is actually my preferred bullet for "cowboy" loads in my old H&R single shot. I have yet to shoot them over black, but I know of a fella who did. His solution was to fill the hollow in the bottom of the bullet with the...

    I would just keep pulling bullets, dumping powder, and drop a hammer on the empty case to pop the primers. I know it's alot of doing, but then you CAN sell them for scrap brass, and honestly that is the best solution. I would NOT bury them, or...

    Nope, that's what the wood sabot/capsule looks like from the top side. Image borrowed from McPheeters Antique Militaria. Hollow on the bottom, round bullet-y shape on top... Each one filled with shot. God Bless, and One Love GoodOlBoy

    Actually I wasn't as concerned about finding a load as I was with the idea that you might have been having issues with factory loads. I know of a couple cases where Hornady Lever-evolution rounds wouldn't group for beans, but something like a...

    I agree with Tatume. Before you spend money at a gunsmith; who is likely going to sell you a fix whether you need one or not; perhaps we should look at what and how you are shooting, what is your setup, etc. Also you said it is a new rifle. Many...

    Not in the least, as has been said. Howsomeever! If you were to paper patch them instead of powder coating them you MIGHT be able to accurately bump-up that far, but I doubt it. Also we have made some assumptions here. Your 44 mag mold is...

If you do not stand for something, you stand for nothing.

You can't spell "restore" with h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y.

The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.
