    Here's the second group after I figured out where to put the bead. I walked it up the paster to center it. That's 2 in one hole.

    Here is a 3 round group I shot at 50 yds (off a bag) in a 20 ga Remington Express (wife's). They were Remington Slugger slugs in bulk pack from WalMart a buddy had given me. Smooth bore barrel with Carlson $12 IC screw in choke.

    I had an RCBS 400 gr. SWC pb that I used to shoot when I had my SRH. I had a 2x Leupold on it and hitting clay targets @ a measured 100 yards was easy. I believe I got my load from a two book set from one of RCBS' parent companies.

    I use that mold and lube also..... My Glocks that I had would shoot anything, as will my Ruger LC9s Pro. My CZ-75 SP-01 will not digest anything larger than .357..... As I made a pile of rounds before I bought the CZ I still have a LOT of the...

    Never did any that heavy, but did make quite a few for a .480. The mold has to be good and hot, but you know that. I used to strive for frosted boolits, when they started to take a longer time to solidify I'd turn the heat down just a little and...

    I remember when I used to get 60 pound lead ingots from Sanders lead. I had to take them to the place where my son worked and use their cutting torch to make them usable. They sure absorb the heat!

    I've been asking them for years as well. I watched as new offering after new offering made the lineup, and a lot of them were of calibers that I had never even heard of. I can't believe it took this long before such a popular cartridge made the...

    Just get rid of all that undersized 9mm brass, problem solved. Unless you have a woman in the house, being the 9mm is a ladies caliber, you will need to keep some around. ;-)

    Just fill the .40 cal cases with lead and use them as boolits for a .44 mag. Makes one heck of a wadcutter if loaded base forward, and a pretty potent boolit if loaded case down. Close to pure lead is best.:Bright idea:
