    I wonder how much spring-back there is with those FMJ? You might want a undersized 30 cal sizer die...maybe .307? I'd use a swaging lube, like Lanolin thinned with s bit of neatsfoot oil.

    Back in the summer of 2016, when I thought there was a good chance that Trump might lose to her (who will not be named). 22LR was still somewhat high priced, but I pulled the trigger on a case (5000) and haven't looked back...my 22LR habits have...

    I would be tempted to try Lanolin, it too gets stiff in the cold, but has a melt temp at about 100 Deg F. You could also try Coconut oil which melts under 100 Deg F. OR Pure Olive oil mixed with a bit of Lanolin.

    I edited the microfiber out of your title. Have you thought about Heat treating your 94-3-3 http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?248671-Heat-treat&highlight= I got about 24BHN, but with lower oven temps, you'll get less hardness.

    If your application would lend toward a motor over heating, if sure would make sense to connect the purple wires as lightman states, so the overloads are in series with the switch.

    Slide the firing pin stop down some, look for a serial number in the firing pin stop pocket in the end of the slide.

    Even though I do recall the dollar amount and it was a 1 ton passenger Van, I don't recall all the other details? maybe she had the brakes done too?

    How does the bullet fit without crimp? You need a consistent "pullet pull" Could it be mixed brass doing the flyer, at that velocity everything counts

    One productive Saturday afternoon/evening, I piled up about 2000 from a NOE 5 cavity mold (358-128-SWC). I did take a break for dinner...so I guess it was more like two sessions back-to-back...but all in one day. BTW, the week following that...

    About 3 decades ago, I gave a girlfriend some automotive tire advice...As in, 'you need tires, your tires are shot' She then proceeded to borrow $800 from me to buy the tires. Six months later we broke up, I haven't heard from her since. I...

    The Last cast Iron thread got me to thinking that I should be looking for a nice vintage #8 to add to my collection. Mostly I cook with a #9 Griswold and find it a tad large sometimes. I found a older Wagner at one antique store for $17. The...

    If you can chamber the .433" in the 629 you can shoot it without issue. I doubt you can chamber that unless the throats have been opened up. The pistol in my avatar is a Uberti Old West model, .451" groove diameter, .4565" throat diameters, I...

    I think this is just a classic example of aiming “about a foot” above, when it’s actually 4 feet. I totally understand this, given he is using the stock sights ( they seem HUGE compared to the “tiny” target), and the 3” barrel. Any kind of precise...
