    Lots of commercial ammo on the shelf for it now but you can buy or make your own. Buy a BO (or any of the several variants) barrel. Don't know if you can set back a 223 1/2 ". I've shot 220 UMC subs from my carbine 1:10 twist fine, 145gr cast @...

    GC on the cast? h110 is too fast, 4227 better but that is a high fps load. 9 gr cfe pistol works but doesn't cycle. 10-11 cfe black might work but will be dirty. Light bullets and slow powder don't always get you where you want, need pressure to...

    300BO pistol with brace, 110gr vmax or heavies if you want. My 10" 1:8 is light, 5# with heavy barrel, get a light barrel and save 1/2#, Single point sling and it goes over the back easy carry. Co-witness RD with BUIS, easy 100yd, RD with 3x gets...

    You can re-cook, no problem. I've cooked for an hour for heat treating, no problem. IF they get cooked at too high a temp, the PC shrinks and peels off.

    Wouldn't be anyone left in school in my day and I did grow up in that Ks neighborhood. Courts are craazy as well as the educational system. School announced it was NOT their decision to have her arrested. CYA type talk!

    Charlie Pride - long time ago at a place in DFW, he and gal were cutting up the rug pretty good. Talked to Randy White once. They put on their shoes just like me.

    I have both, normal and tl groove,I prefer the normal as fill out is easier but both shoot fine. Lee changed the alignment to normal pins so the mould lasts longer.

    No, my concern is you sign a paper about lead use and other 'contamnents' in the house. Like if you smoke in your car, get les on trade in. Flux smoke is bad too. Hard to hide, even primer won't cover it. Casting inside won't hurt you if you vent.

    I tried re-heating, then standing in cold water, didn't work (30cal rifle). Mine are flat nose, thought about using a 220F plate on the nose for a short time but haven't tried it yet. Some OP got it to work but controlling the process is a bugger....

    I normally cast 725ish with the Lee pot. Watch the sprue, when it 'turns' frosty it should have a dimple unless you pour a huge puddle. Count from the pour to frosty, cut the sprue and see how it does. Pimple - pulling metal from the sprue. Divit -...

    LeverRevolution is 3" drop and 1100 ft-# @ 150. 2200 fps or better. If it's SW elk, they are like a northern deer, ~3-400#,not 5-700#. Hornady loads em hot. I'd say you 06 scope is broke or installed 90 deg. off. Rings are hard to break, scopes...

    That is a toque rating, not power. It will only run on 3phase. Yes it is fractional horsepower motor.

    I PC and tumble lube, can't tell the difference. I push 308 to 2700. Proper cast the makes more difference.
