    Larry Gibson replied to a thread Micro-groove in Cast Boolits
    Add 2% tin to your COWW alloy. Try that. If it works add lead in 10% increments until the mix no longer works. That will be the quickest, easiest method to see if that mould will work with your rifle.

    Uberti M1873 carbine in 45 Colt to match caliber with my two SAAs in 45 Colt. M98 Mauser converted to 45 ACP which uses M1911 mags to go with my M1911 Colts.

    Like the chevy vs ford debate.......the best one is the one you've already spent your money on.........simply because that's what you've got. I've used Lyman 45s, 450s and 4500s I currently have three 450s. I've used the RCBS and a couple similar...

    I shoot thousands of TL314-90-SWCs sized .311 in all my .30 calls and .314 in all my .31 calls. Use 2.7 gr Bullseye up through 300 Savage capacity and 3 - 3.2 gr up through 06 capacity. I TL in LLA, let dry before sizing which keeps the grooves from...

    Nor does the formula take into account the alloy used. The formula is based on the pressure needed to obturate lead. Many of us shoot cast bullets well above the "failure" level that formula prescribes.
