    You can go ALOT higher than that load for 556 pressures. Do a little searching and you can find the data you need. Those look fine as they are. You should find a node with just a little more. 55gr vmax seemed to be 24.3-24.5 in the 5 different 223...

    DO NOT get International. It can only be used for shotguns. They used to have some data but pulled it due to serious pressure issues and erratic ignition.

    Something wrong with Accurate? I have three molds built by them and every one casts beautifully was shipped promptly and works as expected. Check out NOE maybe. I also have a 311440 that drops large enough and also shoots well for Me with...

    Two more “new” ones for me this week. Both RCBS. First is a 32-98 SWC and the second is a eBay find 45-300 FN. It’s covered in surface rust. But inside blocks is clean but one spot. Hoping evapo rust cleans them. CW

    You use a spring to pull the bullet feeder tube down and it stops the dropped bullets.

    "THAT IS WHY I use Bullseye, TiteGroup, WST, or 452AA in the .38 Special, .44 Special, .44-40, .455 Mk2, .45 Colt and .45 AR." I certainly agree with Outpost75s choice of powders. I've been shooting M1917 S&W and Colts since the late '60s and...

    I'm one who disagrees with the philosophy of "always size to the cylinder throats". I did considerable testing using a Ransom Rest and testing at 50 yards along with shooting off other rests at 25 yards found if the bullets were larger than .002 -...

    jason280 Forgot to mention you might just TL those bullets in LLA as per the directions, let dry thoroughly and shoot. I do that to lots of commercial hard cast bullets with the hard wax lube and they shoot fine w/o leading. I used to clean the...

    This mold is a Accurate 31-135s. It was designed expressly for the RUGER Single six to fit it’s shorter cylinder. I have t yet tried it in the 32/20 but I will soon! Froggy, 7.3 showed ever so slightly sticky extraction from the birds...

    Another thing about "how good" some bullets make the trans-sonic transition back down to subsonic is how close the make that transition to the target. The closer to the target the transition occurs the less noticeable the adverse affect will be. ...

    I had a problem with it reacting. But it was my fault. I did not cook my bullets long enough. Once I started the 25min timer after the bullets wetted out it went away. It was bad enough to cause a few rounds to baarley get the bullet out of the...

    Hello Froggie Yes, your correct. I haven’t shot the birds-head with these kids yet. I have 6,6.5,7 & 7.3 g loads ready to try. This load started at 5.5g of Blue Dot. Then 5.8 & 6.0 gr. Then 6.5 and 6.8 and 7.0g. No issues with any. Cases...

    I am getting Tactical Rifle for $16ish/ lb. And Auto Pistol for $20/lb. So it is a bit of savings. If I bought the AP in 8lb jugs then it would be the same as the Tactical powder.

    Other than the above some bullets will make the trans-sonic transition w/o losing a lot of accuracy, becoming dynamically stable or losing stability entirely. Generally a flat based, round nosed bullet with high sectional density makes the...

    I've been shooting 41 magnums for many years and have used a .410 H&I sizer in my 450s. That has always given excellent accuracy because, as already mentioned W&W and Ruger are quite uniform in throat and groove diameter dimensions. Also for a lube...

    I have a MP 359-220 HP mold that’s really showing promise. I just got a 358429 HP. It’s a lil lighter than what I want as a hunting bullet. I have tried a LBT 220 and a Lyman 358315 and RCBS 200-FN. none shot very well. Not well enough for...

    With the EoTech mounted it's easy as both eyes are open so vertical hold is easy to tell the same as with the use of iron sights, just like on the handgun also. Additionally the Eotech reticle has a circle around the dot with hash marks at 12, 3, 6...
