    I have been noticing availability is up on some less common powders but nothing that looked like a massive glut in supply. You know seeing a few of the powders that have not been common or a place having a couple of cases of 1# jugs instead of 1/2...

    Over on the CBA forum Larry Gibson recently posted pressure test data in .45 Colt using Bullseye powder with the Accurate 45-240H1, 45-262H and 45-290H bullets. 6 grains of Bullseye is a mild load well below SAAMI MAP safe in older guns. A charge...

    ALWAYS size revolver bullets to fit the chamber throats, about 0.0005" to 0.0010" under chamber mouths is correct.

    I suspect there is a glitch in their website database. By brand should list the brands but lists nothing. The message for powder would be typical of web programmer generic message for no records found for display. I sent them an email to let...

    One other thing, my Macs slug from .363 to .365+ so a .360 bullet will likely be too small for your gun. I'd suggest .365 as a minimum if you don't want to slug your barrel. To use 9mm brass in your mak, expand and recap with the mak die then...

    I'm loading cast lead, I need to run a expander down into the assorted brass to get consistent neck tension and avoid thicker brass swaging the lead down to fit the brass. 4 hole turret, powder through, seat, crimp takes up 3 so.... if I want an...

    Well not if it works it isn't. Only a waste of time if it fails to function AND you don't learn anything in the process.

    Someplace there is a YouTube video of a guy using that set up and it looked like it worked pretty well. He just put the mold over the larger pot of lead on his heat (propane as I recall), pulled some up in the ladle and let the stream from the hole...

    For those who can gain wisdom from the experience of others, you will probably do well in reloading if you take some care. For those of you that feel a need to pee on the electric fence to see what happens.... we want video and don't touch the...

    I have one of those mugs on my bench (not sure what is in it) and one on my tin shelf that I use to store loose pewter ingots (small bars run about 5 ingots to the pound) for adding to batches so I don't have to dig for them. I figure I don't need...

    The meplat on factory Winchester Silvertip .30-30 loads is 0.155", so that is a good number.

    The above is a pre-view of the article which will appear in the next upcoming issue of The Fouling Shot, published by the CBA. I would highly recommend that all serious cast bullet shooters join the CBA and support the association, because...

    OK folks, here is the complete compilation of .32 ACP data: Buffalo Bore’s 75-grain FN +P is claimed to be the most effective .32 ACP factory load. But, it costs over $1 a pop! Over the last year, I successfully developed home-made...

    It feeds 100% in my 1963 DOM Walther PP former German Police turn-in and in my Beretta M1935. Never tried it in the Beretta Tomcat because the frame on that pistol cracked before the mold arrived. If you would like to try a few before ordering...
