    I may be wrong but I believe this sort of stuff is highly collectable in places like England, perhaps someone here may be able to say. Regards Stepehen

    Sounds like wrong cartridge used or gun not a cartridge gun. Mine just pull out easy when top removed, I would try what you said or drive a sharp narrow blade down and split the cartridge assuming it is not metal. Regards Stephen

    I just abused a female scammer last week, told her she could make her mum and dad proud by becoming a $2 hooker. No I don't consider her a lady so I did no wrong. Regards Stephen

    I should also mention my brother shoots my plain base 320gr .452 in his 460SW magnum at near 2000fps with outstanding accuracy and no leading. Regards Stephen

    I cast for myself and a good mate, I do 300gr 350gr 405gr 460gr and two different 500gr in .460 all coated. I use them in my 458wm and mate uses them in 45/70, there is no leading if no gas check is used. I do however find they shoot a little better...

    I don't powder coat but I do use Hi-Tek coating on all my cast, I drive 158gr lee plain base at 2400 fps in my 357 max rifle with good accuracy and no leading. The only bullet I still use gas checks with is my .458 wm loads as I think it gives me...

    For what it's worth I would be very reluctant to use any rifle cartridge around my children's rooms, shotgun with light bird shot would be as high as I would be willing to go. Many years ago I had reason to keep a loaded gun at hand, it was a 12...

    I have plenty of 40SW shells, Police shoot at our range and leave a lot of brass on the ground, I have formed a few into 320gr projectiles for a mates 404 as proof of concept. I don't see why you need to coat them with Hi-Tek other than you can....

    I can tell you they will work great as I drive 158gr plain bases at 2400fps in my 357 max with no leading and great accuracy. I hope you did not mean you coated over those blue things with Hi-Tek, if you did I think you will be disappointed as I was...

    Some good ideas here gents. Outpost75 your idea of running 30/30 into 7.62x39 die was one I never thought of and it may well be the choice he makes, aap2 I agree that a bottle neck case will be a better option. My 357 max Cadet can at times be a bit...

    A friend of mine has a bubba cadet which will have a good barrel once a couple inches of muzzle end are removed. The project is to up the power of the 310 cadet round by rechambering it to some form of necked down 357 max case, by using some...

    I believe you will have problems with coating sticking to swaged bullets, I believe swaging will give the same smooth surface that sizing will and this causes problems with adhesion, perhaps soaking the swaged bullets in acid will give a surface...
