    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!

    My wife's son was on the SWAT team here a few years ago before he moved to Nashville. He still stays on guard when visiting and is always watching.

    Beagle333 replied to a thread Starline 30-30 in Leverguns
    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. ;-)

    Honeycrisp is my favorite apple. They don't grow them here, so price is always at a premium. Anytime I see them for less than $1.99/lb, I stock up. Publix often carries them at $4.99/lb, but I just have trouble making myself pay about 4 bucks for...

    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:

    Tom W. replied to a thread What is it in Lead and Lead Alloys
    The Babbit that I used to cast was almost that composition, but no lead at all. When I used it straight it made some beautiful but extremely hard boolits, so I made ingots of it to add to my COWW.
