    Thanks for the reports, been curious about the CFE powders. Have plenty of 231, Unique, Universal and finally BE but it's good to know the new powders are getting it done.

    I must be doing something wrong. I've shot thousands and thousands of boolits since I started casting and now have my first badly leaded bore. Not exactly sure how it happened but I'll probably have it out by bedtime.....or I'll let it soak...

    Not really, with all the threads asking "where did he go" one would assume this thread was stirring the pot. No big deal, there is another thread somewhere talking about his new forum.

    The sights are genuine Parker-Hale 5B range sights, quite rare in these parts and fetch premium prices on ebay. Here is a closer view of how it fits between the "ears"

    Actually your 68 Chevelle does have an emission system, PCV came along in 64 or 65 IIRC. One of the most effective systems to date and little if any effect on performance.

    A solution I like better is a set of RCBS Cowboy dies. The sizer only minimally sizes the case, barely touches the neck. Case mouth expander expands the neck slightly and bells the case mouth. Expander die works the same as a Lyman M dies, expanders...

    one little tidbit about the Lee 4-20 pot. As the level of the alloy continually gets lower, the Temp of the alloy will get higher, if you don't adjust the temp knob. It has to do with where the temp sensor is located. That is why a thermometer is...

    Tough break, Doc. Hope it turns up soon. I spent a little quality time with my load book tonight. My new 45-70 made a big dent in the 40 hunting rounds I loaded a little over five years ago. It seems I've only fired 10-12 rounds with my favorite...

    Yep. I tried non-stick foil, parchment paper, a silicon baking mat. Silicon mat worked best. I made accordion folds in it to hold the bullets in place, and they come out good, no stick.
