    Cowboy action .......I wonder if Jerry Mikiluk has done it more than once . Ammo production alone has it in for shotguns . Rem nitro steel is marked right on the side of the 2-3/4" case 1050 B.A.R. which converts to a very handy 15,000 psi ....

    Seek out the Lyman tool . It does a roll crimp , in my case I still have to remove and seat a primer but a spare MEC 12 ga press does that .

    Harter66 replied to a thread .45 Colt and Unique? in Cast Boolits
    I shoot mine in a Ruger and my original notes said 6.5-8.5 for SAA 255 gr . My old lot of Unique gave me 850 fps out of the 7.5" barrel at 8.5 with a 454424 , 452-252 @262 gr and 825 with the 452-255 @265 gr . Some books give 9.5 as a max load with...

    Flounder . 1-10 is plenty in in the first 2 for AR family 223 and 30 Rem/6.8 based cartridges in 25 & up cal . For cast it's probably going to be fine in 260 . It's probably way too fast in the 35 though I shoot 250s 2100 fps in a 1-14 358 Win...
