    That would be correct if you were necking .243 Win to .260 Rem since the cases are the same length. With the 6.5 CM you are sizing the shoulder and body down to form the neck on a shorter case than the 243 Win.

    Smoke's powder has always worked great for me, in any color. He is A+ to deal with. If you get the chance, get some of Smoke's CLEAR powder coat. I like it better than the colored pc. It looks like a sugar frosting on the boolits until it...

    Any mold I buy, from whoever, Lee, Lyman, RCBS, or a custom mold, I always "de-burr" the sprue plate. Use some 400-600 sand paper and do over the surface that contacts the mold block,...take a fine sharpening stone and/or ceramic rod and go around...

    Hickok replied to a thread Sizing question in Cast Boolits
    I don't think they will increase to any degree that you want. What type of rifle do you have? Try .459" in your rifle before you get anxious about needing .460". It may be a tack driver. If you need .001" more inch from your mold, you can...

    Coming for a precision competitive background I had very little use for full auto. That is until I got to play with them some. It's hard to have that much fun with your clothes on. Rambo-ing an M60 with a 200 round belt is something that you...

    Duplicating the velocity is only one part of the equation. Duplicating the pressure with the same velocity is the real challenge. Per the owner, Tim Sundles claims that they use proprietary powders in some of their loads to get the performance...

    Well, I don't have it yet, but I am trying to find a Henry Big Boy Carbine blued steel, 16" round barrel, side gate in .44 Magnum. A dealer close to me has one, but it is color-case hardened and octagon barrel. Nice carbine, but not exactly...

    The JA barrels are should be timed and indexed so it should be a direct screw on. That is the point of the index mark on the receiver and the barrel. Just line up the lines in inspect the headspace. No chambering should be required unless the...

    While per Dave Emary Hornady's senior ballistics scientist the Creedmoor’s parent case is the.30 TC but that is mostly marketing hype. It's actually the brainchild of Denise DeMille and like a whole host of others like the 6mmXC, 240 NMC, 6mm...

    Killed between 40 and 50 whitetail buck and a few does with a 243 most with one shot. Depending on angle and size I found a couple of bullets just under the skin. Never lost one or had a hard recovery.
