    I had both my Colt .44Spl's Reamed out to I think 14degrees ?. Sorry it was 30+yrs ago. It stopped my leading problems. Same Gunsmith did my S&W 624 at the same time. Matching bullet diameter to chamber throats and bore diameters really helps....

    I size clean cast bullets for pan or Tumble Lubing, by tumble lubing them in Dawn dish soap. Size then rinse in hot water in a strainer, dry in sun. Then lube by TL or Pan Lube. Depending on need. And if you haunt fleabay you can find Lyman Lube...

    My Uberti '73 (1987) will not catch the rim to extract the cases. Tried .44 Spl too. The .45 colt case won't fit in any of My 4 .44WCF Rifles or one Revolver. Sized them in My old Lyman dies from the early 1960's. Rem cases sized in that old size...

    I used to counteract moisture 2 ways, first I start with a cold pot filled with cold scrape. I lay the scrap spread out on a tarp in the sun. Cover with 2nd tarp at night. That also allows you to check for weird stuff to reject before it goes into...

    Sig556r It is not good to compare Hi-Tek with other heat cured coatings. Hi-Tek requires only basic requirement when being heat cured. The dried coating film/s and cast, must get to 180C, and stay there for another 2-3 minutes to adequately...

    The Lee 44-240-2R is a Round Nose. It is "sharp" enough to rest on the primer of the one ahead of it in the magazine tube. Not a good idea. Primer detonation in the mag tube is NO FUN. If you want a good 240gr. N.O.E. Makes a FANTASTIC BULLET the;...

    Lots of ways. 1) Adjust seating die/stem to just touch a factory load. Size & expand a dummy case, no powder/primer. Seat one of your cast bullets, no crimp yet. Drop it into the chamber of the bbl of your disassembled pistol. If it plunks, then...

    If it's a new Lee mold and you still have the receipt, you can send the mold back to Lee. Tell them It's dropping undersized bullets. If It's used, well you know why it was sold. Their Warranty is only good for 2yrs and you gotta have the receipt....

    Get the Lyman #4 Cast Bullet Handbook. It's a great Reference. And it also lists Overall Cartridge Length. Or OAL, that is a good reference (no pun intended) point to start.
