    If you have a bottle of JB bore cleaner sitting on a shelf for a few years, cut the top of the bottle off, pour off the oil, use the paste packed in lube grooves to firelap with. Best EVER firelapping compound! Full power loads too none of this...

    One of my customers dropped a 1911 barrel into a padded 6" x 8" mailer, it got scanned and ripped open, claims were filed, yada yada, it showed up 3 weeks later in a plastic bag with what was left of the envelope. Another one dropped a Blackhawk...

    If you can take the bolt out of it and gain a straight shot at the barrel you could rent a piloted reamer from 4D Rentals and throat it yourself. Manson reamers generally have a 1.5 degree leade on the rifling so you have a 3 degree included angle...

    It comes down to resistance when you question pressure increases because of a hard alloy, and/or smaller throats. It's very obvious that the more the boolit has to be swaged down to go through a throat, resistance increases, which will cause...

    I use W231 in 45ACP. I never shoot anything lighter than a 200gr LSWC, the 185 is basically a lightened LSWC so you can load it to mouse fart power level for target work only, and you usually have to set up the gun with a lighter recoil spring to...

    DougGuy replied to a thread 45acp LSWC, Fail in Cast Boolits
    Some makers do have a little freebore, but it's often the case that the diameter of it is too small to seat a .452" out as far as you would like to. More like .451" - .4515" but I have pinned out Glocks at .453" on more than one occasion so there...

    DougGuy replied to a thread 45acp LSWC, Fail in Cast Boolits
    If you can look down the barrel and see rifling all the way down to the chamber mouth/headspace ledge, like the barrel on the left, nothing you do will make your chosen COA work, and seating deeper only creates a secondary problem as a poor...

    It appears that I'm going to have to cast for this cartridge, too. The bore of the rifle measures .4595" which, with the microgroove rifling, seems to let the slug rattle down the bore. Commercial boolits sized to .460 were a tiny bit better. ...

    DougGuy replied to a thread Glock barrel leading in Cast Boolits
    YES. The reason I get so many 35 caliber barrels and cylinders is that most want to size to .358" so that there is an ample amount of lead to be swaged into the rifling for a tight seal. Works in autos, revolvers, and also rifles. Having a barrel...

    DougGuy replied to a thread Glock barrel leading in Cast Boolits
    All good now, got clean scans this week! Keep in mind that the alloy you shoot has a LOT to do with the final size. Softer alloys have less springback so they will come out of a .358" push through sizer a few tenths smaller than a wheel weight...

    If they are blued steel you might have a chance, stainless is very difficult and very time consuming to firelap.

    DougGuy replied to a thread Glock barrel leading in Cast Boolits
    So, you are still getting leading correct? You have not yet sized to .358" correct? You should have great groups and no leading if you are sizing so they will just plunk in the throat. Also, one of the things you can count on a soft alloy...

    If it dropped down the bore from the muzzle, and then you loaded a 209 primer from the breech plug I think it would be much better received overall. I can see the advantage of a consistent load increasing accuracy, my White inline really perked...
