    popper replied to a thread 308 boolit mold in Cast Boolits
    +1 ^^^ Flat nose is better for hunting and it is heavier than the others. Don't use that exact one in my 336 tube mag, I went to 185gr. You probably want a harder alloy while in bear country. A lot of feeding problems can be solved by COAL change. ...

    Range PU, factory Hornady, toss them when they split. Anneal when I feel bored. FL sized for levergun, lee dies. No clue as to how many reloads, but probably 10 avg. Unique cast loads to factory FTX loads.

    popper replied to a thread Suggest ant traps in Our Town
    Most ant bait works until it gets wet. I put some Amdro granules where they come inside and they haven't been back for years. When it gets dry, Sevin will kill all pests in the yard.

    OOB firing. Check FP, dirty channel or bent. Possible (not likely with factory ammo) large case. Factory box means nothing. I do NOT put reloads in factory box.

    Sorry longpoint - way late, yes I use Cu in all my alloy. This was same as I use in the 308W 4% Sb & 0.5% Cu. Heat treated. I use AC in the pistol and run them slower.

    Really hate to tell you but Tilapia in the states is raised on droppings of other fish, same with pigs, feces added to their feed. Probably a lot of others I'm not aware of.

    IIRC, wax bullets will go through garage door, no problem. Other is powder choice, cfeblk is supposed to be flash suppressed. I can't shoot my 10" pistol with one hand and it only has 3 more rnds than my 40. Don't think an intruder is going to...

    US army has a book on pistol marksmanship, Canuks (IIRC) have one on rifle shooting. Basic logic behind accurate shooting. Many 'run&gun' training programs around. You can do it yourself with practice on dueling tree, steel or just multiple bull...

    it has a magnifier in front of it, at normal sight picture is stays the same. if you wear mag. glasses, it gets larger. the sight lens does not magnify the target, just the reticle.

    IMHO I would not use the BO pistol for in house defense. For an 8" it may be hard to get reliable cycling with heavy bullet and pistol powder. Heavy and clunky for rapid use and no more firepower than a standard SA in 9 or 40. HV anything...
