    At 490 pics you got some melting on the HP or was that PC not even or not full fill out ? But I would get a true temp reading and keep the heat around 400 just increase the time spent in the oven is my thinking.

    I pre-heat my convection oven to 400 degree and put a cold tray of PC'd boolits in for 20 minutes. Takes about 5 minutes for them to "gloss" and 15 more to "bake". It has worked fine for every batch I've done so far ...

    I started deburring my primer pockets in the case with a #1 starter drill turned down and welded to a small rod to fit in the case mouth way back in 1970 when I shot more and went for precision at distance. Now I use a Sinclair de-burr tool (not...

    try patching to 0.0005" bigger than bore if you are wiping for best accuracy. use thin paper and a thick bullet. if a 45 is not making confettii like a 40 cal, something needs addressing. the inner wrap needs to be cut. keep safe, bruce.

    I have always been told that if the rifling isn`t engaging the patch as it goes down the bore, don`t have hopes it will `confetti` away at the muzzle. My patch work is set to just below where the ogive starts.Robert
