    if your planning on that, go with his steel or brass molds. I would also step right into a master caster and not the lee pot, they are waaaay too different for anything you gain from the lee pot to transfer over. I have 2-3 of both sitting on...

    the truck gun out here is something that can rattle around a bit without you really caring about the finish. it's used to whack a yote or rock chuck when the opportunity arises. the Arisaka and Mossburg I mention above wear scopes that would...

    That should be M1906 ammunition, the stripper clips being a possible clue. Have you pulled a bullet?

    the 314 is well suited to the 7.65 argie round. the K-31 has a completely different throat/bore/groove dimensions than any of the others you mention, it will like a silhouette design.

    N-110 is like our 2400. in use not exact burn speed. as I remember VV put out a load manual for cast bullets and N-110 is the prominent powder used in the manual. I would contact them or find one of those manuals. I wouldn't enlarge the flash...

    you can cast just as fast by hand as with the machine. faster actually. your not giving up anything by buying a magma mold, they are top notch and hold up to tons of casting.

    back in the old days they used tin with their lead. I would bet 25 or 30-1 would be more than enough with the P/C applied. I realize a pound of tin would only make like 5-600 boolits.

    you can squish a gas check up in diameter all you need is pressure. I push 8mm checks on 8mm boolits up to 358 all the time, it's how I make 140gr gas checked wad cutters.
