    Thanks all. Seems 15.5 is my accuracy load also using Unique. Jump to 16.5 and looks like shotgun pattern instead.

    Lino is precious today. I mix lino & pure at 1:3 and then add 2% tin. The 1:3 mix is 96-3-1, virtually the same as the average composition of COWW ( see here http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?231905-Clip-On-Wheel-Weight-XrF-Data). After...

    I'm trying. Due to working all the time I can't find enough time in the loading room to get more than 50-60 rounds at a time. Lol. I had bought a Turret press to speed that up but I'm powder scared so I'm usually waiting on Chargemaster to drop...

    HS 6 is what I ran in the Henry. Really nice loads and cleaner than Unique. Just happened to be out when I loaded these. I'm at a stopping point pretty much until I can get cylinders reamed out to match bullet size for the bore. They are undersized....

    I picked this up today in 45 colt, 45acp. Four and 1/2 inch barrel. I'm not going to shoot any full house loads through it but thought I'd like to carry for something in 25 yard range with my rifle of course. I'm casting a Noe mold that's been sized...

    RMc, many thanks for the link to Havlin Sales! Their prices are a little higher than Numrich but their website is much more detailed than Numrich's, at the least I'm sure I'm getting the parts I need.

    Well after all that hassle my barrel drops in but slide won't go on. Back to Lone Wolf and see if they stand behind their refund policy.

    longbow, I was an 870 guy for a lot of years but a yearning for a 20 ga. and Pandy's posts regarding the M500 caused me to buy TWO of them last month, a 12 and a 20! I'm not sorry! Lightweight, smooth, slick handling guns! The 12 came with 3...

    Yes, I had forgotten about longbow's custom rifled choke tube, something like 100:1 twist rate. Certainly worth a shot! People have told me that it's a problem o "over-spin" a bullet; I've never understood how that could be a problem, any thoughts?

    longbow, the wads look good. Last outing only 1 out of the 10 fired showed any damage, a torn but attached petal. It tore at the base where it cinnects to the bottom of the cup. Wads show strong rifling on the gas seal and light engraving on the...

    You gents running round ball/wad combinations in rifled bores; what diameter are you finishing at? Is .740" too large for a rifled bore? So far my loads with a .662" ball and a single wrap of paper in a Federal 12S-3 wad are running 5" at 50 yards...

    I don't know why I typed Storm Lake. I bought the Lone Wolf. They were only ones that offered a 30 day no hassle return. I ordered the threaded barrel which I thought I might like later on. I had one years ago to convert my Glock 27 to shoot 9 mm....

    Well now, after reading the discussion regarding longbow's search for a new shotgun, I had to get me one! Actually I'd been looking for one for awhile, kinda' miss not having a 20 ga. in the cabinet. I found a very gently used M500 at the LGS for...

    You may have had good luck. I've read where several people do. I've tried bullets from .401 to. 4045 and have had leading in one mag of each. I will spend the extra money to be on the safe side. Powder coating helped ones sized at .403 but added...

    I've got an 18 and a 22 lb spring now. I was thinking of a mold somewhere in 200 grain range. I think husband shoots 200 gr underwood in the factory barrel now. I'm only going to use it to plink with. My lead is around 20 BHN right now. So that's a...

    It's not giving any accuracy with cast or powder coat so I'm going to try one for cast only. Will use factory barrel with jacketed.

    Been looking at KKM and Storm Lake barrels for my Glock 20. Storm Lake on eBay around a $125.00. Just got off the phone with KKM and $175.00 shipped with 10 day lead time. Was going to powdercoat for stock barrel but would rather size and lube. Also...

    No tumble lube bands. It's the TC. One on left is a bullet I had pulled. The other was just cast.

    Maybe not a crimp groove but last band on bullet underneath the wadcutter itself. It has a lube groove and then the other band which I assumed was the crimping groove.

    According to my slug it is .40185. Close to .402. I traded a 29 for it so I've no idea of how many times it's been fired. I get great accuracy with factory ammo in it still. I'll resize .403 when set gets here. If it doesn't work I can order the...
