    EMC45 replied to a thread tennis elbow in Casting Equipment
    Mine flared up a few years back from shooting about 100 rounds of 429-421s over around 19gr. Hercules 2400. I was getting ready for deer season and I was dialing in My 7.5 inch RSBH. Didn't see any deer. My elbow hurt for a couple months afterward.

    I know that in my misspent youth I tried loading the bullets that I cast for my .30/30 into my .308 with regular jacketed powder charges and got patterns rather than groups. I can shoot the same bullets with light loads and get good results in my...

    I had problems and emailed Lee. They sent me a closed end die to get the checks on firmly, then could run them through the sizer. I tried both nose first and base first. The flat nose bullets did better base first, the round nose did better nose...

    Today at the range the guy next to me came out with a 7.65 swedish Mauser straight pull with a ring on on the end of the bolt. The rifle looked like it just came from the factory, stock was perfect, bluing was excellent, and it was as accurate as...
