    GhostHawk replied to a thread Spreading her ashes in Our Chapel
    I lost both my parents last year. They had a lot at the local cemetary. Put up a marker that looks like a little stone house. 8 spaces for urns, the urn is sealed into place with a stone cut from the marker. And a brass plaque that tells the tale. ...

    I agree that hulls should have a notation if they are straight walled and tapered. Ideall both hulls and wads would be cross indexed. If you buy these hulls you want X or Y wads. This would make life a LOT easier for someone just getting started....

    I'm using 3 grains of Red Dot but I like my loads on the milder side. I have loaded them up as far as 4.5 grains with no issues, good accuracy in carbines and a handi rifle stubb barrel I have.

    ATF with very tight patch's, followed by dry, then a very wet one. Let it soak for 4-8 hours. Repeat. When you think it is getting close go shoot 20 rounds through it and clean again. I had a pair of mosin's with very dark bores, very little...

    I agree with Reddog81. Stick with what JM Browning designed it for. There are extended barrels for 1911's. At one point I thought about a 12" barrel. But, you gain no sight distance. You can't put a front sight on the barrel and have it go...

    I used the lee 405 and powder coated it up to .459 and opened up the lee sixer to .459. It was a great combo. Using powder coat you should have no problems getting to the diameter you want Sent from my SM-T377V using Tapatalk

    I'm not sure you will gain much velocity with a barrel over 18". 5.5 grs Win 231 and a 230 cast powder coated runs 830 fps out of 4.25" barrel and same load does 1000 fps out of 17.5" barrel, pretty quiet too.
