    You can't get enough 4198 into an M1 carbine case to get into trouble. Load a full case with 1/8" compression as if loading black powder in the .32-20.

    Lee 255 RF mostly but sometimes the 200 RF either one powder coated is better bullet than I am shooter. And even tumble lubed for a big batch of plinkers I have no complaints. The 200 is a little milder on recoil which is nice in general but also...

    I think JBinMin is 100% correct in the idea of being a regular customer makes a difference. Also makes a difference if you can purchase large quantities. For yourself or for a group that pitch in together. I stop in to "check the bin" and ask...

    Perhaps someone who has ordered recently can confirm the phone number? Or email address. I don't know them well enough to be able to confirm the real owners are at the other end of a phone call. The placeholder page says If you need help with a...

    In the dark, under stress, at a target moving toward you. BMC is your only real target. Only question in my mind is how hard you going to hit that mass and with how much weight. I would use a DA with say .38 at 158 grains or 9mm at 124 grain as...

    If I am correct, Power Pistol has been discontinued and replaced by AutoComp. 5 grains is the +P load, with AutoComp using a 158-grain bullet in .38 Special.

    I was also thinking LsStuff ready made. For what they sell a quart for I think you are well ahead over making it yourself. If you decide to make it yourself then check LsStuff because they also has Xlox which is way cheaper than other sources of...

    12 lbs. of near Linotype alloy. Had some spacers in it that I'm guessing were fairly high tin/lead alloy. BNE tested it at: Sb 10.4% Sn 5.1% Pb 84.5% Linotype would be 12/4/84 So the tin part bumped up which drove down the percentage...

    Cast a couple dozen Lee .562 round ball to see if they were a snug but not overly tight fit in 20 gauge with a wad. Now going out to do a couple hundred because they fit very well.

    My advice is to stay on the mild and conservative side with heavy bullets in the 9mm. I load 3 grains of Bullseye with a 147 cast in my 940.

    1:40 casts well, giving good fill-out of the mold cavities and is economical. Casts much better than pure lead, but is not too hard for use in muzzleloaders or cap & ball revolvers. Ideal at black powder cartridge velocities with either BP or mild...

    The concept that you can't take an alloy back apart certainly has merit as a consideration. I keep the majority of my components separate but.... When I make Lyman #2 I'll end up having it gunned a couple of times to adjust the alloy until it is on...
