    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.

    The only way to totally avoid the annoying calls is to get rid of the phone. Remember when there were no bells ringing to disturb your dinner/peace. Who needs the aggravation?

    I hope you got my point about the experiment with "your" boolits. It doesn't matter what LaserCast or Rimrock bullets will do in your rifle, because they are NOT your boolits. But it did tell you that your rifle will function with a .454 sized...

    I don't have an answer to your questions, but I'm gonna guess that those details aren't as crucial when loading for 45-70 at "less than High Velocity". Now, if you are looking for great accuracy at long distances with Max loads, then I suspect you...

    My thoughts are... since you have a .452 size die and "if" you have a .454 size die, it is time for you to do some accuracy testing of the two different sizes of your own cast boolits, from the same mold, cast from your own alloy, to see what your...

    When Stihl brand chains got expensive about 10 years ago, I found Baileys. My close friend and I have a matching set of Stihl saws...one each of 16" and 20". After I bought a couple woodland chains to tryout, I started ordering them by the 10...

    my cat likes to catch a bunny and play with it, til it's dead. She never eats even part of one. Most times after it's dead, she will lick/groom the dead bunny like she's prepping it for the taxidermist, LOL.

    I think the Star is the best...especially for pistol boolits. but, I do prefer the Lyman 45 for Rifle boolits with GC. If I am heat-treating Rifle boolits, I use a lee style push through size die first, then Heat treat, then lube them in a Lyman...

    9.3X62AL; Now this sounds like fun: 60.0 grains of WC-860 (full case in W-W brass) gives a satisfying cannon-BOOM report, not quite 2100 FPS over the time-clock, and grouping remains in the 1.5"-class. I don't have WC860 but I have 5010...

    I hopes that it helps! Nice mold overall but the lack of fill-out at the base of the bullet takes some of the joy out of the experience. Thanks again, Mark

    Yep, Rocket stove is what I'd make for smelting range scrap or insulators. I'll add...I would not use one with WW, too difficult to control heat and I'd fear zinc contamination.
