    That bullet profile could be duplicated with a small lathe equipped with a tool post grinder. And a cannalure tool for the muzzleloader bullets, the process would not be fast. But considering the cost of those bullets, making your own might be...

    That is due to the limitations of the hardness formula. It is really only valid with tin and antimony percentages found in boolit alloys. The formula produces good values when both Sn and Sb are higher that about 1%, but not higher than about 6%. ...

    Nice target, I will shoot some more of your pellets after I get my scope mounted square again. For best results do not let target turrets bang against steel pellet trap...

    Looking for something like these? If you're just using them for a display for a few days, I would be happy to send them to you for just the cost of a small flat rate box, as long as you send them back when you're done. Let me know! Don

    D-RIG kindly sent me some of his swaged .25 air rifle pellets. We visited on the phone and I told him I had a Marauder PCP 25 caliber rifle. MY results at 31 yards yielded 3 groups of five, about .65", My one comparable group today with...

    Newtire, I have a mould for a hollow base, smooth sided, slug (drops at @.395), that I'm sending your way this morning. There are two different pins for the hollow base. I think it was designed for the .410 shotgun, but after reading your...

    clodhopper replied to a thread Leaky Maruader in AirGuns
    I had given some thought to smearing a little spit over the fill nipple, like checking a leaky valve on a car tire. But read online about the importance of keeping PCP guns dry inside. Really, throwing the gun in the bath tub will make the leaks...

    clodhopper started a thread Leaky Maruader in AirGuns
    Last night after shooting a few rounds, I pumped up my .25 Mrod. Checking the pressure later it was down 500 lbs. An hour later it was down another 500 psi. By this morning the gauge read 0. So, thinking it was the check valve on the fill end....

    Glad to see you here, really want to know more about your pellet swaging. I have a .25 marauder, and am making chips plus bigger pieces of scrap from 01 tool steel in attempts at a 25 caliber pellet swage die.
