    I leave the pot temp alone and light the propane heater in the casting shed. It might only be 15 degrees outside but it's roasty-toasty inside!:-P

    I use a similar alloy, 94-3-3, with the Lee mould in my .375 Winchester running at 1297 fps. Accuracy is good and there is no leading. I wanted to duplicate the original 38-55 load at 1300 fps so I settled on 10.0 grains of Unique. Your load is...

    RPRNY, I would be the last person to advise the use of varmint bullets on deer. The thing you mist consider regarding my recommendation of the .223 is this; The 62 grain boded core bullet was intended from the start, and was built to be, a deer...

    Put together a hundred rounds of 12 gauge round ball loads for deer season (and practice!) and made up some Bruce B softpoints for my .375 Winchester. I usually hunt with the rifle but on those rainy/snowy/wet/sloppy days I prefer to take the...

    DRT? A .223 sporter loaded with Federal Fusion. It is AWESOME what this load does to a deer! The deer I've shot with it have wound channels that look like I shot them with my '06, I kid you not! The last deer I killed with it, the bullet broke the...

    If the pawl and/or ratchet are worn enough to cause the gun to be out of time, return it to the factory for service NOW. If you continue to shoot it that way it will certainly not get any better.

    centershot replied to a thread Making Ben's Red in Boolit Lube !
    I'm surprised that a load that shot so well would change so much by changing lubes. But, what do I know, I've been using alox lubes (NRA 50-50 and tumble lube) for forty years, this is the first time I've used anything else. Deer season is two weeks...

    LOL! Well, yes Ben, I've done that. I wasn't expecting any problems by switching to Ben's Red, this caught me by surprise, to say the least! Can you offer any insight as to why this happened? This lube has been well-received and is used successfully...

    OK, here's a question - Did anyone have any problems with accuracy declining when switching from Alox-based lube to Ben's Red? I'm loading for a .375 Winchester; W-W cases W-W LR primers 10.0 gr. Unique Lee .380-255 plain base boolit, .380"...
