    I weight the bullets before and after the knurl and the knurled bullet gained the most weight. I have never seen a gain in length but changing to a more aggressive knurl you can gain diameter just about as much to a reasonable diameter you want like...

    I made rollers on my Lathe using the knurling tool with different pattern depths. The thing with knurling a bullet is it also increases the bullet diameter. This pattern you see on the pictured bullets will increase the diameter by as much as .013"...

    I swage most of my pistol and some rifle the bullets I swage I knurl and pan lube them with the lube I make. This works very well with no lead problems because no bare lead makes contact with the bore. I also make full .355 wad cutters for the 52...

    Lead pot replied to a thread Wax as a lube? in Boolit Lube !
    I use a 1/4" straight B-Wax wad right on the powder with no other wads or paper in my 93 and 95 Marlin lever action rifles with black powder and a GG bullet. This lets me have fun at the range with out fouling out. The B wax wad right on the powder...

    Bruce you can pour a very consistently uniform thickness lube for wads that will not vary in thickness from side to side. This is how I make my lube wad cake. I use a round 12" straight wall cake pan and put about a 1/2" of water in it and put it...

    Lead pot replied to a thread Hard drive eraser? in Our Town

    John yes you can shoot a bullet with out a wad. A GG you would get by better to a point then a PP. A PP patched to bore you have to balance the allot hardness so it upsets quick to fill the grooves to hold the gas back so it don't cut. I primarily...
