    I'd think you'd want something like 0.010" to 0.018" patch. There's some compression going to happen and more with a thicker patch. But if you have 0.715" bore then you'd want the ball around 0.695" I think. That's close enough to 0.690" to try...

    I just looked the Piledriver slug data out for another fellow so thought I might as well share it here too: This was my basis for loading most slugs over 500 grs. I used Fiocchi 2 3/4" hulls, Winchester 209 primers (mild) and built up wad...

    HS6 is a great powder, so is long shot, but it is a very fine flattened ball powder. So it is not a dense powder, it's a very fine small particle size.

    Take the barrel/action out of the stock and see if it will fire. If it does then something in the stock is blocking the trigger from fully disengaging the sear on the striker.

    Soft swaged Hornady or Speer bullets should shoot fine over 4.8 gr Titegroup w/o leading like that so I doubt its the alloy. My first suspicion would be the lube. I suggest using a Q-tip to put another coat of LLA or the 45/45/10 on the drive...

    I've used Jeff Cooper's suggested 7.5 gr Unique under a 200 gr cast for many years. Not my standard practice load but when I hunt with the M1911 or my M98 conversion it is the most common load I use. I also load 7.5 gr Unique under Hornady 185...

    Might weigh some before powder coating. Also the alloy used can give a marked difference in bullet weight. Moulds are cut for a certain ally for a specific weight +/-. If you use an alloy with a higher % of lead the bullets will be heavier. If...

    Guy In another thread I recommended a Dacron filler over 36 gr IMR3031 under your 350 gr bullet in the 45-75. That still should be quite safe but you may want to drop to 32 gr and still use the Dacron filler. That way you can work up to 1380...

    All good advice. Pre-1972 steel frame Detective Specials and Police Positives shouldn't be fired with +P either! Winchester makes a standard pressure 110-grain Silvertip which performs well in the 2" guns.

    this is how it works with naked lead too. eliminate the imperfections and don't change the intended shape of the bullet and you get on target results.

    Concur. It's during the flight of the bullet to target that the centrifugal force acts on the imbalances in the bullet which results in larger groups or poorer accuracy. However the 3 moa accuracy tomme boy was getting is within the expected...
