    303Guy replied to a thread Twist and stability? in Cast Boolits
    I found a stability calculator that showed the stability over a range of velocity in the form of a graph. It was interesting to see how the stability went south through the transonic range. Bullet shape was taken into account. This site took the...

    Looking good! I roll my patched boolits on my lube pad with STP smoke stopper on it and seat. The STP soaks away and leaves the paper gripping the neck pretty well. Makes for easy tight seating. It does work best with printer paper but that...

    For what it is worth, I now patch without a tail. Or I did when I last patched and will do so again soon. For me the only thing was to protect the boolit base from powder kernel peening. Harder allow and/or lower pressure solved that problem.

    While not the most sexy nor attractive ... I much prefer the packmeyer presentation grips. They fit my hand perfectly and are not all that ugly to me.

    John, getting a custom barrel from you would be superb. Judging by the liner you did on my 93 Marlin I would be happy with a barrel done by you. PM sent

    I never focus on the front sight. I focus on the target and the rear U focuses the front post for me. Same with peep sights. I'm not ashamed of my shooting ability. I once shot with a Remington 512 with scope and another with with its irons and...

    that makes sense as the 45 Colt is a fairly straight walled case with hardly any taper. in the '73' this should not be a problem as the lifter raises the next cartridge up flat and shoves it in the chamber in this straight line afair ... now the...

    Thank you. My main goal is to put slugs on steel at 50 yards. I don't care and pinpoint accuracy 4-6" with a smooth bore is plenty good for my intended purpose. I have an "00" buckshot mold that I use for sling shot ammo I'd like to mess with...

    I haven't. But thanks for the tip. But it still requires a mallet blow? I want to take it off and go with open sights. It's a short little bush gun, made for mud and rain. The scope was just for 'accuracy' testing.

    The pressure will lock the case body onto the chamber wall and the case head will separate. Don't ask me how I know. (Never did find that case head).
