    Lee finally released the instructions for the APP. Looks like they want you to buy an extra adapter if you are using a universal decapping die for 22cal. And they also say it is not recommended to size bottle next cartridges with the pass through...

    Excellent question. Most commercial cast bullets and factory "cowboy" loads are assembled with hard-cast bullets because the 92Pb-6Sb-2Sn, 16 BHN alloy, is readily available in 1-ton heat lots from the lead producers, the material flows well through...

    Order a mold to cast bullets THROAT diameter, NOT barrel groove. Cast your chamber. Read the sticky. Most likely you will need a bullet closer to .315-.316 rather than .313-.314" NOE and Accurate both make suitable molds of adequate...

    I have web space available, depending on the size of the files, I should be able to put it up if anyone has copies. I couldn't find Wiljen in the list of members to send a PM to. Does anyone have a contact email for him that they could PM to me?

    I still have some Magnum #2's left over from my crow shooting days. I have used some to alloy lead, it does take awhile to melt, but it finally does, so not too bad. Probably never use it all in my lifetime.

    BNE replied to a thread How accurate is a pistol? in Cast Boolits
    Every pistol I own is more accurate than I am. I really think they just take more effort to hold steady and to aim than a rifle that is designed to be held more securely. Iron sights that are only 4 inches apart are difficult to properly line up at...

    Any bolt .30-'06 which feeds and goes bang with factory ammo in which the bullets don't keyhole at 100 yards is worth that.

    I've been shooting cast bullets in numerous 22 Hornets for 45+ years. The problem with the 22 Hornet and cast is the different twists used over the years. I've shot cast in 12, 14 and 16" twist barrels. The one cast bullet that has performed...

    The WFN GC'ed bullet cast of 16-1 alloy will give all the penetration needed or wanted. No, expansion is not "needed" but it kills quicker. That may be of benefit in thick stuff in Florida as it was in thick stuff where I hunt simply because the...

    The .38 Special wadcutters ordinarily do not produce linear dispersion when target range increases very much beyond about 50 yards or meters, when shot from the standard S&W 18-3/4” twist barrel. Using a faster twist of rifling, such as the 1:10”...

    You are not going to have a catastrophic failure by running standard 45 Colt loads in a 454 case at 45 Colt length in a 454 gun. By seating the bullet deeper into the 454 case you will probably end up with a very slightly smaller case capacity than...

    If you are not shooting these in an antique revolver, but in a modern revolver chambered for .38 Special, the 12,000 psi pressure limit does not apply. Instead look at starting, pressure-tested loads for the .38 Special and match the same overall...
