    I started with my Dad's old MOSSBERG Bolt Gun. Wanted to shoot his FN Browning SA, wouldn't let any of his Boy's ever shoot it. My Grandpa bought me NYLON 66 just after they came out. My first New Gun, I think it was just to tick off my Dad. ...

    I bought My first .270WCF in 1974. It was my first New Bolt Hunting Rifle. Took my 2nd Elk with it that fall. For some reason I've never cast any .270WCF loads. Just skipped it and went down to .257 Cal, For .250S, .257R & .25-06 I ended up...

    I Know your Pain, I felt it when My last living sibling left. I don't think the pain ever goes away. But time = distance. The pain just gets less intense. MAY GOD BLESS YOU.

    I have one of those NM RUGER BlackHawk's in .45Colt from the mid 1970's. I had new ammo split on firing. And reloading those cases ? I lost about 5 or 6 split on every loading. Didn't have any problems with the S&W M29 bought before the .45Colt...

    Yep, You need a better heat source, maybe find an old used 2 burner propane camping stove. Plenty of support for a 9" cast iron skillet full of alloy.

    The Ideal #429215 - 210gr RN was an old mold for the .44 Russian. In the early 1950's it gave up It's mold # to the Thompson .44 - 215gr GC and was assigned the new #429478. My DAD had a Ideal 4cav mold #429215 that dropped a .44 - 210gr RN. I...

    I used an old Lee 240 non-TL bullet over 6.5grs of Unique in my old CA Bulldog. Which is also a load shown in the Lyman #4 Cast Bullet Handbook.

    Sorry Ausglock, I must clarify Sizing Lube comes as a liquid concentrate, and is called Aqualube 3000 and there is Aqualube 5000. The difference is particle size of colloidal suspension. They both work interchangeably. Both need very large...

    I favor the Lyman #429421 and #429244GC But we haven't been able to legally hunt with Cast Bullets in a lot of years in CA. Long before the prohibition again Lead based jacketed bullets. But I'll tell you the old Lee #429-208-WC over a good...

    When I was a Kid, the Tru-Line Jr. Press was the first step up from the Comet singl stage. I was 10yrs old when I got to step up, .38Spl - lube, size, expand, prime, powder(#55), seat & crimp. It was so easy. One of those steps in growing up....

    I have a 1500watt single burner that I use to preheat molds. After I pull the molds off, I turn down the heat to preheat 1 lb ingots. Forgot to turn down the heat once. No damage, but the melted lead poured through the "hanger hole" in the cast iron...

    I've heard some folks size before PC and then after. The only time I had a similar problem like this was when I made the mistake of casting some Lyman #454190's out of PURE LINO. Dropped at .456dia and I didn't bother to check as cast bullet...

    If its a Lee type sizer on your press, I do a little shake in a plastic tub with DAWN dish soap. Start sizing 4-5 soapy bullets and the switch to 1 soapy one every 5th or 6th one. If you shake out the soapy one onto a plate you can let them dry. No...

    RCBS has Replacement Ball Handles for the RC'er. And I have a longer one with an offset Ball handle to use when I stick the Piggyback II on it. Mine were both free, but that was back in the 1990's.

    I think you may be confusing IMR4895 with H4895, for Reduced Loads. When I had a .375H&H I used IMR3031 for full power JSP loads and H4895 for reduced loads for JSP and either H4895 or SR4759 for Cast Lead loads. You CAN NOT use IMR4895 in...
