    I was unaware that Marlin made some 1894S (44mag) with a faster twist? I had a 1894S (44mag) that was made in the early 1990s, it had the 1:38 twist. to the OP, a 200gr boolit should be ideal for a 1:38 twist. I mostly used 240gr jacketed...

    I got a 60$ rebate from Cooper for 4 new tires, and when I tried to use it for some auto repairs at the same store, it was expired. It cost nothing, and that is exactly what it was worth. Lesson learned, use it as soon as possible if they will let...

    So we have a siesta time in the middle of the day. What's the big deal? I generally take a nap then anyway.

    I have a 45acp Lee Pistol (carbide) FCD as well as several others that came with die sets. I've used them with jacketed bullets (and commercial cast bullets) back in the day, I don't really load any jacketed bullets in pistol ammo anymore. I quit...

    I assume it's a "El Paso" ? (stamped as such?) I have a K10 El Paso on a Ruger #3, while it's a bit large for that small rifle, the scope tube is long enough to correct the position of the far forward mounts that plague the #3 (yeah, I suppose I...

    I've had 50 cal pistol checks by both Hornady and Gator. I'd guess they are the same specs. I only have one mold with GC shank. It's the Lee 440 RF. the shank on my boolit mold is undersized, both checks slide on too easily, and kind of crimp...

    It's easier to get an appropriately sized tote to store all the equipment in. Clean is a relative term. I have 2 totes, one has the tools and the other supplies, and finished lube. The tools don't matter if it gets hot, but the supplies need a...

    I would choose a powder with a slower burn rate for that heavy boolit...depending on what velocity you hope to achieve.

    DO NOT reduce H110 or Win 296 by 60% again, I will state, there are too many "exceptions" to have a valid rule of thumb.
