    That part I understand. Only curious of how much I can resize without deforming.

    I wish! But then again, you'd need a 50 cavity mold to make it practical.

    I've got some case slick. Don't know what it's made of. I usually use Hornady paste lube or one shot for bottleneck. I don't care for the case slick. It gums up my sizing die. The bullets are coming out of the mold that large. I was informed at Noe...

    2 on bottomhave been resized. 2 on top have not. Stupid I pad turned pictures sideways. Should have been left to right.

    I haven't bought a .454 resizer yet and not going too until I can scrape up enough for a lube sizer. I already had the .452 sizer. It wasn't until I started sizing on the Lee classic cast that I could feel how much pressure it was taking to do it....

    I'm asking am I sizing too much to deform my bullets from what I've been reading.

    I had posted earlier that my Henry seemed to like .454 bullets verses the .452. I reslugged this morning and high side is pretty much dead on at .451.5. I ordered a Noe mold that was sized .454 since this was measurement of my Laser cast bullets. Al...

    Yeah, the wife & I were talking retirement (hers) the other day and my thoughts drifted to new armament I would need once we settle in Arizona. But then, the hunter in me found it's way out and said "Hey Patrick, a lot of ek have been killed with a...

    They told me to keep the old one for parts. They sent new one today. I also got the Noe mold today. Looks like a Cadillac next to a Pinto. I did luck out with this Lee with no burrs. Cavities looked good. Noe looks a lot better. Will try it this...

    I tried that barrel-shim trick posted above before I left for the range on Monday. Dang! That really tightened up the fit! And, of course, the scope was no longer zeroed because of it, but once I got it back on paper it put 15 rounds into a nice...

    I'm hoping NOE sends prep specs for the new mold. I know guy at Noe told me whatever I did was to never smoke the mold. Clean with dawn and heat treat 3 times if I remember right. I think I read that they cast at 600 degrees but I have to keep alloy...

    I had bought my first 2 cavity Lee mold from Amazon 3-4 weeks ago. Had burrs in back cavity. I've honed and sanded on them until almost gone but they are still there. Mold pin came out and took a real aggravating time getting it back in. Am waiting...

    I spent a few minutes pushing wads & balls thru my bore with a dowel. The 12S3 +.662 RB mikes .717-719", yet, it's snug thru the bore until I reach the "breech-end" of the choke tube. There it gets noticeably looser until it hits the choke...

    rking22, I'm of a mind that the 16 ga. died for no good reason. I don't own one but keep wishing I could afford a Sweet Sixteen A-5! Longbow, yes that combo with the card is REALLY tight, w/o the card it is still snug but definitely pushes thru...

    Well it's been about 3 weeks or so in now. Got the Lee 4-20 and bottom pour some and ladle some. Don't like my mold so ordered a NOE mold. Got to get a lube sizer yet. Don't care for the messy Alox lube. Cast these with 2 different Lee molds last...

    Yes, I quite agree! For ultimate accuracy everything needs to be tightened up and a scope mounted. Here however, my purpose is to find a RB load that is easy to assemble and will provide accuracy on par with factory slugs. Also, I absolutely do not...

    Longbow, This gun has interchangeable choke tubes, I am running the IC tube for these loads, so about .010" constriction. It's very possible that even that small constriction could shear a petal as the 12S3/.662" RB combo is very snug. In the...
