    I've had a couple P89s and I have a New 9e I've never tried the 105gr, but all these rugers like the Lee TC 120, LEE RF 125gr, and the Ranch Dog TL RF 135gr. I also have the NOE 128gr SWC specifically for a fussy browning Hi Power, The NOE also...

    Sadly, their website was incorrect, the twist rate is 1:38

    Well I just received a disappointing email from Henry. I had asked, "I see Henry is offering the Big Boy color case hardened in 44 Mag/44 Spl. The 20" Rifle version specs the twist is 1:16 Can you verify that?"

    Well that's good to hear. I sent them a email (via their website "contact us") yesterday after I made the post I do have something custom in mind.

    Nice looking mold, I haven't ever cast with one of their molds...I wonder if they do any custom work?

    I am a big fan of the Lyman 45, I think it's a better design that the 450/4500, but that's my opinion. All Lyman dies and RCBS dies will work. I prefer the older style Lyman dies without the O-ring, as they were made to fit/seal in a 45. The new...

    I wouldn't thin it. I make my own and it is the consistency of creamy peanut butter. Heat is your friend. My process is just about identical to Gray Fox's process. I will make this claim, If I pre-heat the boolits and don't apply too much...

    I use 94-3-3 for Rifle boolits, It gives very good fillout, and as Larry explained so well, a balanced alloy is stronger/tougher. I use COWW or COWW blended with soft scrap for pistol boolits, depending on the desired loads I plan to assemble. ...

    Just seen this photo and caption on social media. It reminded me of this thread. It's too bad Mr Hoshino didn't grab his levergun, instead of that Nikon.

    I've never heard that? I've only heard about the connection of 2400 to 22 Hornet.

    I am sorry, I didn't realize this was a rhetorical question. ahhh, you are not dumb, you seem smarter than most. I, myself, am a simple man, and what Hodgdon states about their H110 powder seems simple enough for me. Good Luck on your...

    Does the 2018 manual have the same 3% warning near the front of the manual with the other numerous warnings? The warning in the 2011 manual doesn't say, MAX loads should not be reduced by more than 3%. It says, "loads should not be reduced by...

    3% according to a 2011 Hodgdon reloading manual. They state, "due to inconsistency of velocity", but there are several posts in this thread by people I trust to better explain why it's dangerous.

    I've always loved the 44, going all the way back to the 80s. 44 is the reason why I started reloading. 44 is the reason I started swaging bullets. Swaging bullets caused me to start casting cores, and then casting bullets, so indirectly 44 is why...
