    Knock on wood ........ I have several 6C Lee moulds for pistols and they typically cast .5-7 under to 1.0 over . The 358-158 RF casts .3598-touching .360 and round to .001 with weight dispersion light to heavy more reflecting the pot level that a...

    I hunted Nevada all of my life . The regs call for 1000#@100 yd minimum . We always planned for a 3-400 yd shot above the tree line but most typically shots were inside 250 yd . The last 3 deer , all antlerless , were inside of 100 . I'm not...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread 8 x 57 in Military Rifles
    Years back I had 2K of the Rem 185 CorLoks. I worked up a load using 47.5 gr of slow burning lot of milsurp IMR 4895 which was very similar in burn rate to IMR 4320. I measured the psi (Oehler M43) using a VZ24 in new condition. The psi was...

    I had an LBT 403-175 RF . I also had a Lee 401-175 STD groove 2C . I gave away the 2C Lee because I "knew" the LBT was better . Later I bought a 6C 401-175 SWC TLTC , the order went through wrong I'm sure I ordered the STD groove . I poured a few...

    ..............I use the mops 99% of the time for oiling the bore after cleaning. The other 1% is used after shooting corrosive primed ammo (30-06, 8x57 & 7.62x54R) with a water/windex mix. ...........Buckshot

    ................You may go here on Cast Boolits: http://castpics.net/dpl/index.php/the-archives/group-buy-mold-archive There is no way that ALL of the "Group Buy", or "Custom" designs are listed there. I think only 2 are listed for the 8mm, and...

    30calflash If your Marlin has a 20" barrel then 200 yards is realistic with the 150s using LvR powder. With the 160 FTX Hornady 250 is very doable. If you've a 24" barrel then 300 yards is certainly possible. With a 20" barrel expect...

    If this works out, you'll be much happier with the Redfield. I love mine on my Winchester. Get a nice white or gold bead to go with it. I'm constantly taking money from scoped-bolt-gun crowd at the range... Cheers!

    In the H.P. White test Keith used a 429421 cast of 16-1 alloy at 250 gr, sized .429, lubed with Lyman Banana lube loaded over 22 gr Hercules 2400. He does not state (that I could find) what the cases and primers used were but I suspect the cases...

    If it reaches 20kpsi it should form fine . I haven't worked with 4227 .... 8-12 gr of Unique should be safe and do the job but check it against Lyman's manual

    I, for one, was certainly not arguing with 44MAG#1 about anything he posted. Since he asked no question nor made a statement I just asked for a little more information to fully understand the information/data he posted. I do disagree with him...

    I had a 405 HB I poured pure , 408 I think . I wasn't keeping really solid track as it was a trial of the bullet and it didn't work out for me . The base plug is most likely the bug in the weights . If they are scaled for tin/lead it's probably...

    What was the alloy? Weight of the bullet? What was the length of the barrels from the breach face to the muzzle (the actual "effective barrel length)? What was the cylinder/barrel gap of each revolver? You merely post results (which is...
