    I still haven't tried the 32/20 brass in my 30 Carbine BH. 30 Carbine ammo runs fine, so if it ain't broke I don't try fixing it.

    swheeler replied to a thread 25-06' what to do ? in Cast Boolits
    My first was a Remington 700 ADL bought in 1970 and it shot 120 grainers just fine, used surplus 4831 at 52 grs, second was a Winchester Feather Weight bought in 1990 and it too shot the 120's fine. Are you sure you are not thinking of the .244...

    Avenger, THANKS for posting your results! The results weren't bad although another powder may produce better groups. Only one way to find out and that is too test them. As per test loads, with rifles when I am getting anywhere close to...

    Both Lyman #452460 and the H&G #68 clones shoot really well for me in a whole lot of 45 ACP self-loaders. In the Glock 21, the #68 feeds with a slight ka-chunk as the slide closes--so there is a slight hang-up or hitch somewhere. But they feed...

    Nobody makes an investment like that without expecting to profit. Just what do they know that I don't? Of course, if I had that kind of money, I wouldn't need to invest. My frugal family couldn't spend it in their lifetime but it would sure be...

    No--you are not. In such situations, I spend a bit of cash and buy jacketed bullets for the marathon shooting sessions. The J-words DO have their place from time to time.

    Grow lights cost a ton of money to run. Illicit MJ grow sites usually "jumper" the power supply from the providing utility--steal power, IOW--and this is their ultimate undoing, because if you think a utility is going to turn its back on $100,000...

    I am just happy that I can still shoot and own guns in this Worker's Paradise. I do not give a flip about dirty guns or smoke (You gotta be kidding me.....), that is what Hoppe's #9 was designed to address. I guess I am "out of touch" as well....

    Unless funds are limitless, a mini tubing cutter will allow you to trim almost to length without a mess. I have done lots while in my recliner watching TV or youtube. The only space needed would be to contain the brass before and after cutting and...

    Avanger, Little question that there are better powders for the 45/70 then 4350. I use H335 in mine behind a 465gr Wide Flat Nose cast. AWESOME. But since you are specifying 4350, you might look up information for the Accurate Arms 4350, they...

    The 45 ACP is already a very lead-friendly caliber right from the git-go, and I had zero leading or accuracy problems with my Glock 21s using cast bullets sized at .452" and lubed with Alox/BW. Bullets sized at .454" did well also. The 8-lobed OEM...

    I have that same mold in 44 mag. Got to get it hot first for sure. You can plan on dumping first 5-6 pours back out until it gets hot. I also take a propane torch and heat both sides of the spruce plate with it and it always helps.

    While I am in no way saying the 45/70 could not have decimated the buffalo herds, the fact of the matter is that by 1873 when the 45/70 came to be, the majority of the big herds were all ready gone. This is easily verified. However, a black bear...

    That made me think back and laugh. I bought a 1984 Chevy 1500 in Kalispell in 1988 with the 6.2 diesel in it. I had parked in front of Super One Groceries and left my pickup running since it was winter, when I came back out there was an oldtimer...

    Typo on my part. Was supposed to be a 3 not a 2. The first batch I ran with lyman#2 give me around 2.5 inch groups at a 100 yards. They are casting .461 but I'm sizing to .459 and lubing with bac.

    I'm using a bottom pour and another 20 lb pot on a camp stove for ladling. I'm also using 2 molds but one is 45-70 2 cavity and other is a 4 cavity 45 colt. It takes a little longer for the big bullets to get set up in the mold verses the 45s. I...
