    I never slugged my SIL's Hungarian 9mm Mak. My 95gr Lee mold drops them at .366 or a bit more? it's been a while since I cast some. I Lube them with 45-45-10 twice, then load 'em without sizing using PowerPistol powder.

    if it's a hot summer day, I dry them outside, in the sun. BUT, if it's wintertime in MN, I use the wood stove to dry them. Also, I decap all rifle brass before they get the citric acid bath, bottle neck cases dry better without a spent primer in...

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I also scored the coveted 45th edition of the Lyman reloading manual. I've heard others mention it's one of their favorites and they wouldn't be without it. I've seen them priced stupidly high on the famous auction...

    Maybe? The Hutchinson show in late Sept has been a staple for 36 years, known widely as a locally run 300 table show (by the Elk's club) with lots of private dealers, much like the Wells, MN show in March. There is usually a "crocodile productions...

    Myself, I keep it all separate and in it's original form, but I don't have 800lbs of mixed type. If I had 800lbs of mixed type, that's been sitting unused since '75 and I wasn't planning on selling it, then I'd surely think your plan of smelting it...

    You do get used to the smell. Ballistol works great for cleaning up black powder! Been using it for about 8 years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    shot the barrel loose? WOW ! Ruger couldn't fix it? WOW ! again. As DougGuy says, .431 seems like the size to use, if it'll fit. Hunting load, I'd use H110, work up a load for your gun, starting at Hodgdon's recomendation for a start load.

    Dip a sharp wooden stick in slowly and scrape near the spout, this seems to clean that area and the drip stops. I use a paint stir stick or a sharp oak stick. There are impurities that get trapped and the carbon (burnt wood) seems to lift it
