    that may very well work, but I set COAL by trial and error, making dummy rounds, starting about as long as possible, then attempt to chamber the dummy, if it's no-go, which is usually the case, I keep trying shorter lengths, until I find the length...

    " required" ...nope, but the amount of accuracy lost without one, makes it worth the cost and effort, IMHO. Here is a sticky on it. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?65035-Can-I-shoot-a-gas-check-design-with-out-the-gas-check

    I haven't seen anything anywhere that they changed 44 Mag. If Remlin were to change the slow twist on their 44 Mag guns, I suspect several will be sold to castboolit shooters and we'd have a dozen threads about them.

    You should email or call Al at NOE to ask the status. There is no average time for an item to be back in stock. If you contact him, so he knows you want to buy one, he "may" squeeze in a batch to replenish stock if he knows one is to be sold right...

    What do you have in mind, Hunting or accuracy? A heavy 265gr is sure good for hog hunting, BUT... since those marlins have that slow twist rate (1:38), a lighter boolit will tend to fly more stable. Many have reported that boolits over 240gr when...

    I would answer "maybe". There are too many variables to give a solid answer. pistol or rifle? BP or smokless? Lube recipe? What oil is used in the lube? percentage of oil content in lube? and lube grooves size

    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...

    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.
