    clodhopper replied to a thread Core molds in Swaging
    You could drill holes ok, but if the holes are not centered on the parting line of the blocks the cores do not want to fall out. Don't mount the blocks on the handles until after drilling the cavities. The fasteners are cleverly designed to not...

    We miss you too, Calvin! Shooting and fellowship was great today - weather was a bit temperamental (some high winds and a brief rain), but all in all, a wonderful way to spend the day. Tomorrow is more shooting, more visiting, and more food....

    Andy, Thank you for your generosity, but wgg already sent me one, and it fit just as original! While I wouldn't mind having a backup, I would rather see it go to someone who needs it. Maybe someone will see it in this thread! Thanks again!! ...

    Loren, I traded it to my son, and he opened the gun rug to show the gun to his father-in-law, and it fell to the concrete. It broke the front half of the sight off, just forward of the plastic insert. I'll have him bring it back over here so that I...

    As it says above, I'm looking for a suitable mould for my .405 Win. Something in the 250gr to 350gr range, and I would prefer a gas check style, but would settle for plain base. Let me know what you got!! Don
