    I think I would rather fill from the top rather than the bottom. your grain amount and muzzle speed isn't too out of kilter suggesting the powder isn't slow enough to need a kicker charge. I'd drop a grain and a half and try a grain and a half of...

    I was happy with our deal also . He drove 10 miles across town to deliver , he told me he'd have come on out to the freeway if he'd known I was headed for San Antonio from Texarkana . Very pleasant guy to meet .

    those should still work. but the powder coat should flow and smooth out at about 350-f then have a wet look as it cooks and not change that look/color until it starts to harden as it cools. you might want to check your ovens temperature. and...

    if your cases are too clean they will stick on the flair/powder through dies especially on the Dillon's. I just swipe my left hand on the funnel every 4-5 rounds. it has a little lube on the fingers from handling the boolits. for rifles when...

    I think that marlin is in better shape than my 1920's made Win. 92 rifle in 25-20, the carbine too now that I think about it.

    It's interesting that the gun read the same amount in both samples. It maybe reads 0.7% of anything you test is Zinc. The XrF guns are not perfect. Try Roy putting some muriatic acid on the lead. If it bubbles, then you do have some Zinc. If...

    that is true.^^ my 041 easily makes 311 but it ain't a new one. I size mine to 310 but only 2 of my rifles will shoot it worth beans. one really likes it and the other tolerates it, probably because of the load I'm using behind it.

    runfiverun replied to a thread something i did in Cast Boolits
    lots of cases make pretty good bullets for other calibers with some up/down manipulation. 380's are fairly close for 375 bullets, 5.7 brass can be made into 30-31 cal rifle bullets, the new 17 Winchester rim fire is almost spot on for 270/7mm...

    I finally updated my deer rifle to the 30-06. I figured I better get with the times and quit using the 7x57 now that the Mule deer have finally spoke with their white tail cousins and got bullet proof. the Elk haven't figured out how to do that...

    you can just buy the dies right here from BT Sniper. a 180gr 358 cal boolit for a core and an annealed 40 short and weak case and you get a 44 mag bullet. flat point-hollow point you can even notch the nose to look just like an XTP. I shoot them...
