    While COW is used many, like waksupi and myself have had problems with it, especially in bottle neck cases. Some years back I did a pressure test for some members here of the 45-70, a relatively straight walled case, using COW as a filler. I found...

    I load 5.5 Unique for a pair of 1917s with the NOE version of the 454424 and 452-200 RNFP Lee . The RBH likes it too . Even a high point carbine likes them . I'm almost out of the 12# keg of 1968 then I'll have to start all over with 2 cans...

    Mark me down . If I'm casting for best bullets I have no issue with a good single but I do find them tedious if I need very many of a particular bullet like a 454424 for example no point running a Lyman single when 4 rifles and 3 pistols don't...

    Outpost75 is correct. The noise level produced via muzzle blast is all about the volume of gas produced and the pressure/velocity of the gas at muzzle exit. The lower amount of the faster burning Bullseye will produce a less volume of gas and have...

    Probably to both questions. If you are shooting from a bench with the rifle in a consistent stable position and are single loading each cartridge in a consistent manner you my not see an improvement in accuracy using a Dacron filler. The reason...

    The 6.8 is the 25,30&32 Rem shortened . The head shares the 30-30,32 WS dimensions but is rimless . The 22 Nosler is the 6.8 case with a rebated rim reduced to the shared 223 rim diameter . There's a 35/38/9mm produced on the 6.8 case . It is...

    Shiloh I shoot that bullet in 8x57 and it is killer at about 1800 fps, only one shot needed to drop an 1100 pound cow buffalo, bison actually but us mountain people call them buffalo. I did most of my testing with mil surp powders when they were...

    The old Lyman slip GCs, current commercial slip on aluminum or home made ones w/o the crimp flare work best. After cooling the GC flicks off and can be reused. With these lightly loaded WCs there's really no reason to shoot the GC. If using a GC...

    NMLRA Guy I suggest 2.7 gr Bullseye in the 32 H&R Magnum under a 90 - 115 gr cast bullet. The SR primers should fit w/o least they fit in Starline and Federal cases. In the 44 magnum the LR primers may be too tall as...

    Yes there were some cases with thicker rims than others some years back.....maybe quite a few years back. RCBS, back in the day, made 2 different shell holders for the 9mm; #16 being the standard and #16 N for the others.

    The propriety carbide sizer in my Dillon SDB sizes the cases just fine as does the Lee 2 ring carbide sizer (not the FCD). I also suggest not "tossing" the FCD as it may come in handy. Years ago I shot thousand of 356402s and 356242s cast of COWWs...

    The results of that report are correct IF one is using a quality commercial bullet that is balanced and that has a strong enough jacket to hold up to the high RPMs. Another caveat is the shorter bullets at Higher RPM are not as accurate at longer...
