    I have a huge drawer full of molds, all I bought and all I made myself. I have to 564 gr molds. All I ever done was dish soap and hot tap water even when I used WD-40 for cutting lube. I made the little electric box oven for the hot plate and put...

    Me too, I have a huge knuckle from heavy bows and trigger guards are no fun. I can't escape it on a Bisley.

    44man replied to a thread 500 S&W mold in Cast Boolits
    I made my mold a 440 gr for the JRH and it shoots great from a S&W. But a 400 will do it too. Just need .501".

    Yeah Doug. Mine fit fine with room to spare. I have my long boolits at 1.725" and they have room. My SBH cylinder is 1.70" but the cylinder is not rebated for the rim. The lee is shorter.

    I crimp in the lower groove. I shot all mine up so I can't measure. Rounds here don't stick around very long.

    1316 fps with the LBT and a might faster with the lee. Now my 330 gr will be a tad slower. It takes 21 gr. of 296. Made my own mold. If anyone thinks a .44 is anemic. This is a neck shot. Crazy shot, deer was running and I led him but seen brush as...

    I watch trophy hunters once in a while on TV but I bet meat is tossed. Why would anyone kill an animal if you toss the meat? They lose one at night and spend the next day to find it. Just antlers. Meat is no good.

    Deer were good from there. But deer in Warren county were iffy. One would be good and the next so awful nothing saved the meat, same size from the same place. Even Ohio was iffy, never had a bad doe or young buck but put an arrow through an old...

    The two guns from Ruger I like best, the 10-1/2" SRH and the 7-1/2" SBH Hunter. All my hunting revolvers are 7-1/2" and my SBH is 10-1/2" ( old silhouette gun.) I don't like the trigger set up on the RH and it is harder to get accuracy with the...

    I have the RCBS bench prime tool, used the Lee hand primer for years but between primers size being "off" and my hands getting a little shop worn I've gone to the RCBS tool with much glee. Got the Lee bench primer to, seems to need a little work...

    Soil is important too. Ohio had great soil and minerals. Not bad here either.

    My observation is that those who learned/started with a ladle are still using it. Those that began with bottom pours are still of that persuasion. It soon becomes a habit with the method you learned first. Like many others I have purchased the...

    Most PA forest deer are so small an empty beer can can clock them. Have to go southwest for real deer. Washington or greene county. Go to Elk county where an 8 point rack can be covered with fingers touching. I have taken does over 200# where I live...

    Pour melt generously into a cleaned HOT mold until you get frosting. That means pouring and dumping fast without inspecting the product. Then reduce the frosting by, 1. cooler melt, 2. slower pace, 3. using a damp rag. You likely created your...

    Agree. Deer angles are never exact. Shoot behind the shoulder and exit the off shoulder to destroy it and guys will say I did not "place" the shot. Sorry but I am not that good. I can't tell 90 from 98 or from 87. To expect perfect means you...

    I've worn coke bottle bottoms since I was 5. Since having cataract surgery, I only really need them for close work. I first found the ringed brass when a primer only partly tore and I couldn't remove it from the SH. I found the rest while...
