    If your bullets fit the cylinder throats (tight push through fit) and the cylinder throats are as larger or larger than the groove diameter of the barrel them "obturation" is a non issue because your bullets will be swaged down. "making it too...

    Something the bullet sizing advocates forget is that a ternary alloy Pb-Sb-Sn bullet will not emerge from the sizing die being the exact size of the hole through which it was forced, depending upon as-cast diameter, and the amount of reduction which...

    Soft steel jackets with a proper copper coating are no harder on barrels than their pure copper jacketed counterparts. I've shot a bajillion of them in '06, 7.62x51, 7.62x39, and other milsurp cartridges over the years w/o any additional harm. Our...

    I suggest the Lee TL430-240-SWC. It has a short SWC nose and with the small TL grooves you can load it to a perfect length for your M92 and crimp in whatever TL groove lines up. Cast of COWWs + 2% tin mine drop at .431 and of #2 alloy at .432. ...

    My favored .44 bullet is the Accurate 43-230G. This is a double-crimp-groove design which lets you seat bullets out and crimp into the rear crimp groove of .44 Special brass, to increase powder capacity and OAL for using .44 Specials in your cowboy...

    rockrat replied to a thread 6.5 BlowMore in Factory Rifles
    I think the reason you don't see the 25-06 in competition is the lack of suitable target bullets or maybe I should say the lack of such a great selection of target bullets. I think thats why the 6.5s and 7mm's are so popular. I built my 6.5...

    The Lee C440RF is a pretty good bullet. I like to load 4227 for it, it's about the same burn rate as 296, but is bulkier.

    My boat gun is an H&R topper in 20 ga. I removed all the oil with acetone and coat it with JPW once per year. On a stock cuff are two #4 buck and 3 71/2s. It is stowed in a case that looks like an expensive rod case.
