    I guess I swing the other way. I mostly punch holes in paper. Don't need a lot of noise, recoil, velocity. 1600 fps is more than plenty, for most calibers 1200-1400 is just fine. So I prefer Red Dot/Promo. I only need a little, 3, 4.6 or for larger...

    I picked up a pound by accident, worked fine in the .45acp. Nice and mild. But eventually I went back to my old standby Red Dot. I think it is a quite energetic powder with lower tolerances than many others. But where it works it works.

    19 grains of 2400 might just be pushing it harder than the alloy can take. Gas Checks? What's the speed on those? If it was me I'd be using the Unique load.

    I would put them in a single layer in cardboard box, keep dry for now. When it warms up set them out in sun or warm spot to dry. Give them a few weeks to get really cooked dry. Then load one or 2 from each box into an empty hull and test. You'll...

    My manual said 20-21 grains. I dropped to 18. I use #1 buckshot. They will self stack. Take 9 in your hand, pour them into a 12 ga hull and you get 3 stacks of 3 every time. To that I add a small measure of cornmeal for buffering, an overshot...

    manufactures go to great length's to cut grooves into monometal bullets,similar to lube grooves,to reduce pressure and bearing surface seems to me that by PCing the boolit you are accomplishing the same unless you just want to play with a mill...

    I'm with Greg. My 16.5 foot the trolling motor gets run more than the 20 hp merc. But I do have a 48 lb thrust MinnKota, in camo paint job no less. Unless your normal fishing is BIG water, fresh or salt I'd go with an electric.

    I went from a 4 lb dipper pot to a 20 lb magnum melter which is still a dipper pot. But it does hold a lot more and will take a much bigger chunk. I gave up on bottom pours 40 years ago and refuse to go back.
