    Lead pot replied to a thread Walnut hill dies in Swaging
    A few years back I talked to Rick Kalynuik of KAL tool and die about getting into making dies to fit the Walnut Hill Swage press and he was interested. But he had some health problems since so I don't know if he ever went into that line. He makes a...

    I think you guys using the reloading press swage dies would use a RCBS Big Max A-4 press or even the C&H three station H press and use the center die holder for doing this type of work. The Big Max is one super press I got on for mostly forming...

    Most of those sewer pipe bores was caused more by the mercuric priming compound than the black powder. Alsoback in that time mercury as in common use for cleaning lead out of the bore.

    I have two .16 ROT .40's one .40-70 and a .40-65 and one 14 ROT .40-65 and the 14 is outperforming the 16's with the same bullets from 1.4" too 1.5" long.

    Even if a bullet eccentric and you run it through a sizing die to make it concentric it will still be out of balance. Shoot the eccentric bullet as it is. It will be concentric when it leaves the bore. :)

    Your better off getting a proper sized mould. You can't compress lead, all you can do is make it flow in a couple directions pushing it through a die.

    There a lot of die hard Swiss users and it is/was/? a good powder. I use it but with the last case I shot up a couple weeks ago I have to see some good reports in the future before I buy another case. I have worked some very good loads using the OE...

    Nah, it don't bother me in the least with what you want to use. I tried it my self and I didn't like my cases getting edged with the green stuff that builds up. Down the bore is not a problem, salt or no salt because I clean my rifle when I get...

    The only experience I have with a hollow based bullet is the mini. I have shot a lot of my swaged cup and dish based bullets in the Sharps and all need a different a way to protect the fragile skirt. The dish or cup based bullets were designed to...

    Cory. When you say hollow base, do you mean like in a mini ball? Some call a dish and cup base a hollow base. It makes a difference on what you use under them.

    Lead pot replied to a thread Old E in Black Powder Paper Patching
    Chris, When I see occasional fliers and I don't think that it's so much the powder doing this if the rest are tight. Something else is going on. When I suspect it's the powder is when the groups open from golf ball to soft ball sized patterns...

    Your right the 57 was my .22 and the 62 was my .256. It's been a while. I might still have the .256 dies.

    Another great .25 caliber that was short lived was the .256 Win Mag chambered in the Mod. 57 Marlin's Levermatic. The 57 was a Box magazine short throw lever action that you could flip the lever without taking your hand off the grip. The little...
