    I learned that all shot shell hulls are not the same diameter internally. and that not all wads are the same diameter externally and they might even be larger in the middle than at the gas seal. this can be good and or bad depending on the hull...

    Tomme beat me. 43-44 for 125's and 42 for 150's I have used both I and H type for both loads and usually do well depending on the powder at that point in time.

    For standard pressure, not +P with the powders you list, 2.8 grains of TiteGroup, Red Dot or Bullseye, not to exceed 3 grains. 3 grains of Green Dot or 3.5 of Unique. Blue Dot in my experience doesn't ignite and burn uniformly in standard...

    Ben replied to a thread Lee molds in Swappin & Sellin
    I think you have an error. You have the Lee 205 90775 listed as a 309 mold. I think that one is an 8 mm , .329 dia. mold ? ? Ben

    Probably... But maybe not... If you already have the dies, try them and you might get lucky. Depends on whose .32 S&W dies you have and whether they are for .32 S&W or S&W LONG, there is a difference.

    Okay, I just though maybe they might be slightly undersize and gas blow by causing an issue. Are they seated flat and square? Is the boolit base flat and square? A small angle there would cause erratic gas escape at the muzzle. If not...

    nope it's just a coating. I shoot a CZ-75b and use the alloy I mentioned above. I size to 358. get a good lube groove design or a slick sided boolit and skip the LEE T/L designs.

    16 BHN for commercial cast sounds correct. it's usually 2/6/92 alloy.

    it's the round shooting into the chamber and hitting the end where the case mouth goes. I'm thinking you can smack the back of the pistol and chamber the round. and it doesn't happen every time. throating probably wouldn't help that, it doesn't...

    an old cookie sheet, an electrical box, or the bottom off another coffee can will work until you get a saw blade. if you were near me I'd drop a couple of blades off to you.

    I use the porta band. for lino pigs I use a hatchet and 2 2x4's. I notch the flat corners then flip it over and whack it on the point with the back of the hatchet, it snaps right off. then I just toss the pieces in the pot and make ingots out...

    I use the large ones as gas checks when I swage 223 bullets. other than that they go in a bucket to see if the scrap yard will take them some day.

    you guy's are newer so you don't know that 45/45/10 lube was designed to do exactly what your doing. Bens tumble lube also does the overcoat. they both work without the lube under them too. how fast they will go just depends on your...

    My Army & Navy was originally a .255 but had a badly pitted bore. John Taylor relined and rechambered it to .32 S&W Long and Lucas Geiger did the exterior restoration after the relining was done.

    Get a larger diameter detent ball. You can search on Savageshooters site for the size. It helps. This is a very common problem with Savage rifles. 223 rifles were the worst offenders doing this. I think there is also a newer design extractor.
