    I don't know if you've shot it or not, if you haven't, the first few trials ought to be fired with a lanyard.

    Ok, thats cool, I seem to remember that members have done it before. The main point of my question is that I am given to understand that the (primary?) ingredient is unobtainium. Maybe 45 2.1 can shed some light here,,,,,

    It is my understanding that "Starlube" is unrepeatable because (one/some?) part of the ingredients are of unknown composition that is no longer made or sold. (Can't be sent to the lab?). Is this correct?

    It it literally is an academic interpretation, defining the difference between the pursuit of game as an act of leisure, and harvesting game for subsistence. ie, it's not the colloquial definition of wether something is "Sporting" or not.

    You know something EDG. I've got some SL brass that's somewhere in the neighborhood of 54. It's very heavy brass, and it's very soft in the head brass. The combination made for a couple blown primers using the same load that worked just fine in...

    Hmm, if it took 5 hours for the first one, that means 2 1/2 hrs for the second one, and if you did ten moulds at one time and charged, say, $100 bucks a pop, and did 3 or 4 runs a year,,,,,,,just seems like a neat way to make a little extra...

    In this case it was a Nosler Partition over 35gr 4895. In Bob S's case, it was a Winchester Powerpoint over 30gr 4895. For a 6mm bullet, it too has a very thick jacket. I don't think a Partition bullet is likely to strip in the bore. Slowed or...

    There have been big advances in pressure testing since those old manuals were printed. That's the biggest factor, but there's also the legal aspect, people suing the people who produced the manual. "I followed their directions and my rifle blew...

    We often get confusing dimensions from various sources. One upon a time 30-40 brass may have been .457 in the head, but most of what I now have runs closer to .453 with .457 being more a chamber dimension. Original 6mm Lee runs .447, but I bet...

    East Taylor will stand behind their product. I got one from him that didn't fit right once the sight was on. When it was on, there was a gap between handguard and stock on the right. He took it back, but wasn't too happy, said he wouldn't sell to...
