    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...

    I have an old Savage 110 that was re chambered from 222 to 223 and this cartridge interests me. I have a 357 Max Martini but would love a bolt gun in 350. Regards Stephen

    I tried sorting the jacketed from cast and lost interest real quick, but I ended up with some 400 Kilograms of lead ingots that were fine for my use. I plan to mine the berms at my club again when it cools down some, I being an older member can...

    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...

    Marcopolo hit the nail on the head that corrosion is a dead giveaway, I have had old 303 Brit brass do the same when it is corroded like that.I bet the corrosion started from inside. Regards Stephen

    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 believe that picture is long gone but I do remember when it was posted, from what I remember the front shoulders were torn to bits and much meat destroyed. I think the OP proved his point that cast is a better killer but maybe a little too much of...

    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...

    Feeding something like the 458 win mag with factory gets old real quick, but generally I don't see a saving with the amount I shoot in a year. Pride and enjoyment are the big motivators for me. Regards Stephen

    The use of extra acetone as you describe, does not cure leading it actually thins down the mix and makes it easier to get a thin even coat on first coating. I actually use this mix on my first coat as well, take note of what HI-TEK said about it...

    When much younger and casting for myself and two mates, I cast over 4000 230gr .45s and it took a long day. I still cast between 500 to 2000 in one hit, but I enjoy casting and take pride and pleasure in it. Regards Stephen
