    Doug Guy--my rationale for sizing +.001" over throat diameter has to do with uncertain outcomes of bullet diameter once seating into a case mouth is accomplished. My 38 Spec/357 Magnum expander spud mics in the .3565" ballpark and .358" bullets get...

    I load most of my revolver castings at .001"+ throat diameter, some are right at throat diameter. I can't see much difference in downrange accuracy, and haven't leaded a bore for several years. FWIW.......a week ago I was firing a new-to-me S&W in...

    There IS something to flat-pointing the RN 22 LR rounds that enhances lethality. I am not interested in the Paco tool at all--anyone who has used a Lee Loader knows why I say this. I have filed little flats on my bullets as a shade-tree experiment...

    Yes with antimony alloys especially when sized immediately after casting, they'll grow as they age up.

    I've tried to load images, but it always fails. Maybe my image file is too large.?.?.? Can't say and I've not had this problem before. However, the images are from another camera that has a heavier load of pixels. CDOC

    Thanks Claude --- Maybe I'll need to add the IMR4227 to my list of tested powders. With the triple 4 bullet, I tried, LilGun, H110, AA#9, MP300, H4227, Unique, Blue Dot and 2400. I'll likely put LilGun and H110 towards the front in my up...

    Lead has in the past been available everywhere, but plastics and health scares have fixed that. Wheel weights, plumbing, roofing scrap etc are fast becoming a thing we read about, but can't find. If ya find some even at an exorbitant price, it may...

    Why would you use a check or a big bill to buy a stamp? That's what banks are for. Besides you can buy stamps at groceries and even at some banks. You can even buy them from your local USPS carrier.

    Of course someone can do both or a number of factors at once. We all do that. I just don't care much for shopping or for dickering. Some folks love that stuff.

    Froggie........the K-32 x 6" is my Holy Grail. I am looking on intently. In the meantime, I have a Model 16-4 x 6" in 32 H&R Magnum and an SP-101 x 4.2" that do good service as my 32 S&W Long repros with powder weights giving 900-1000 FPS to...

    The approach can be any mixture a person wants to blend. It's not my place to tell others how to go about their business, I was only sharing my own view of the question.

    22 LR firearms have definite ammo make & type preferences. I have a couple that are my "Steak & Lobster Dinner Cotillion Debutantes" in their tastes, others are more "jeans and hiking boots and MREs" in their preferences. In life, I have had a LOT...

    There are a lot of "variables" to factor in to the acquisition question. It boils down to this, for me--Do I want to spend my free time hunting online for bargain tools & toys, or hunting afield for critters? My time is worth something to me, and...

    Used the RUGER 77/44 on a deer for the first time this past Monday evening. DECISIVE! Shooting a 275/280gr Wide Flat Nose cast from a Accurate Mold #432275M which is made for the triple 4 Marin. I cast this bullet for a son's .444 and...

    USPS MOs are a PITA on both ends. I only use them if no other payment is accepted. PP may be anti-gun, but at least on the buying end it's hassel free. For us that have to make a special trip to the PO it can be a real problem and if it is a...
