    Walks I don't vibrate the case with the powder in it. I have a vibration mounted on the shelf the powder drop is mounted on. I just lift the handle again after I make a drop and let it settle in the powder drop while I put the wad in and compress it...

    This question comes up quite often and you will get the answers from people that use a drop to be the best no matter what the brand is. They all in my opinion, all have their fault in one way or another. I been putting black powder in cases since...

    Lead pot replied to a thread Fluxing in Black Powder Cartridge
    I cast in the basement and fluxing is not an option doing it several times during a session, the vent hood I have over the lead pot does not catch all the smoke. I just use a spoon with holes in it stir the pot and skim off the dross and set it...

    Good choice Larry. This bullet is an all around good bullet for just about everything. The only thing that would make it better and that is getting rid of those rumble strips. :D

    Brent just take a hatchet and put a vertical cut in a white pine and let it bleed and a couple days scrape off the pitch. Just a small BB size does a good job and it smells better that smoker wood. :) I don't think smoker wood has much rosin.

    You can make a rifle with .400" free bore shoot quite well but you need to patch the bullet groove diameter. I have spend a lot of years with rifles that had .430" free bore and it shot every bit as well as the rifles I have without. Pedersoli...

    Just stand the bullets up in a tin bred loaf pan and pour in the lube till the grooves are covered. I like to use a .40 or .45 caliber leave factory rounds come packed in, you will find a bunch at the range because I don't think they reload anymore...
