    Doesn't appear to flow very well, try 250f for a while, then up to 400 for 15. Try some cotton gloves when shaking. Swirl a lot to get static and up/down to 'float' the powder. Tap off excess. Try thicker #5, thicker elec insulation works better.

    Keep the alloy temp below 220F and no effect on BHN. I wouldn't boil too long.

    Look for JM stamped on barrel, not Rem. Late Rem s may be good - or NOT. What ever fits your budget, they al work. Trigger may seem funny as it is 'floppy'. Good bore is most important. If used, get 5 snap caps/dummy rnds to cycle - won't cycle or...

    Dumping straight from the mold into a glass of hot water helps harden them a tad as well. NOT! Cold H2O will. If you have a proper top punch just use it to tap the GC on, base on a steel plate. Hold the mould handles tight while the alloy is...

    I use 145 & 170gr super in the BO, run the 170 @ 850 fps, fun. You could run the 100 gr soupcan seated real shallow. I've heard of running the 30 carbine mould for pests.

    out light shuts off but the temp. keeps rising another 10 or so degrees then falls down to set temp. Called overshoot. Do the autotune on a 'full' pot a couple times, then it will be OK. You will get a bit of overshoot later but just let it settle...

    Usually 39gr of H4895, haven't tried IMR version. Kinda bottom end load and I've gone higher but not much improvement other than some extra fps. Varget wasn't as good, nor ARcomp but they worked well for jacketed. Haven't anything slow like rl15.
