    I put the mold on a hotplate and let it get hot, and kept it there for about 30 min. Turn off the heat, and let it cool down on its own, which takes quite a while. Repeated that cycle 5 or 6 times. Mold started to develop a nice patina. Then got...

    Never had a brass mold, or a HP mold that I could cast worth a darned with. Bought a new to me, and almost new 358429 brass hp. Spent most of the day conditioning it. Had to fight serious temptation to jump right to casting with it. And WOW. I...

    Also, for grins, I had loaded some of the NOE Lyman clone (690-500-HB) with the MEC Slugger using some once fired Remington low base dove hulls. The NOEs where seated in Claybuster CB113812 pressure wads (WAA12R clones). So two clones that are a...

    Got around to shooting the Lee one ounce slugs that were loaded with the Slugger. A majority of these were a bit rough as I was adjusting the dies. The bottom line is that they shot so good that I need to work back through them using the Slugger. I...

    I considered it, but there are no older 20 Gauge bolt guns. I don't want to buy the Savage, and I'm not interested in any other action.

    Now that I've had all the dies apart and understood how they work, I'm getting the hang of this thing. The wide meplat of the Hammerhead is a bit of a problem but I've learned a there can be a small amount (.1") resting on the slug and the 2nd crimp...

    I will get with you guys a bit later this evening. All three crimp dies are adjustable, a pretty good range plus I think the "Short Kit" will take it down to less. I found a kit at Wholesale Hunter for $27 so I bought it just to see what it does. In...

    Life has been good with the Slugger, just been too busy with the holidays to report plus this retired guy was offered a heck of a part-time job doing something that he really likes. Anyway, the hogs moved on, so I have not felt the immediate need to...
