    You could make up a jig to drill a large shallow hollow point in them, but its a lot of work if you only have a few. Stick with flat point even though I know of one guy who has used Lee 125gr conicals with no ill effect, I actually purchased the...

    I believe this was covered some years ago when some were having problems using MEK and Joe found they were using the product you were using which as you found was not the same. Regards Stephen

    The APS350 is a single base replacement for AS and AP 30 which are double base, as fare as I am aware the loading data for APS350 is the same as AS and AP30 powder. I believe there is a new APS450 which is the replacement for AS and AP50. I should...

    I had two 94 30/30 rifles 40years ago that would both group into 2 inch or less with WW 170gr silver tips, I just wish I still had them. If you get your rifle to shoot better than that 2 inches I would love to know what you did. Regards Stephen

    Have a look on utube you will find several that have direct drive from motor to the bucket, you could rig it to support on the screw top I think. I use a 5 gal or 20litre bucket tired into my cement mixer and it works for what I do. Regards Stephen

    I use the Lee 6 cavity handles on several of my double cavity moulds, some moulds require the slight thinning of the metal in the mould area but they are great value and I like the extra length. I think you will find that you don't have to use...

    There can be no doubt that bad bases be they cut or just badly cast will result in bad groups, but if you pull back the edge of a check, load and fire it the check will be pushed back into place and all is well again. This was the findings with my...

    I tested this theory last year and I agree with you, I found no change in accuracy as long as check stayed on, I don't powder coat but know some who do and as long as they keep the bases clean all is good. I guess the best idea is fit checks before...

    I have a modified Lyman 156gr that I had lube grooves removed from and it drops cast at 172gr without G/C. I have not tried this one as yet, I coat all my cast with HI-TEK coating and use no G/Cs and get no leading up to 1,700fps. I hope to try the...

    I use the Lee 158gr-RF in my Rossi, many use the 125 gr Lee-RF as well. The Rossi is a strong rifle and takes loads I would never put in a converted Winchester 92. Regards Stephen

    I would go with a lighter bullet like the RCBS 300gr f/n g/c. The 400gr will kill anything that walks or crawls and a 300gr would be good for hogs deer and better for those who are sensitive to recoil like kids and women. A rifle that is not a...
