    I have to add Cu to the alloy for high rpm loads for 308W, else 'poof'. Soft PB won't cut it.

    Was pulling some stuff Monday, one 40sw with HITek. No coating on the bands! Just slight tamper crimp but case tension too much - moved some Pb when seated. Old liquid green 2 coats. OF course no sign of crumbled HiTek.

    Lemishine and liquid laundry detergent that dosn't contain ammonia. Don't have a pin separator yet but not a real problem doing it by hand. Dump on a large towel to dry in the sun - I've been using a metal pan on the hotplate (set low) for a final...

    243K rpm says poof! 1500 says 135K rpm - maybe OK. And yes, the PP should shred at the muzzle.

    I've been told that most 40 S.A. actually H.S. on the extractor. I was looking for something that will work for snakes in S. Tx. when hog hunting. CCI (I think they use #9) only gives me one shot. Pattern is only good to maybe 5 ft. but that...

    Cci srp work fine. Slam fire is not good but muzzle safety reduced danger.

    I've shot Cci snake shot in 40, problem is not hot enough to work the slide so stovepipe. They feed ok. Alum. case. Look like 10 neck sized. May have to try WST load.

    Looks like over temp cooked anyway and yes, HiTek in that condition will turn to a powder when scraped off so you probably don't notice. Do a smash test on some you pulled and you see crumbly flakes.

    Something about numbering each scan file so they don't overwrite.

    Tex - got a Bob's single load mag for the BO (223 mag), really like it. Shove one in the slot, drop the bolt and fire. Lock back so just repeat! So a 9mm version gets you there.

    I usually like 2x moulds for rifle but Tom does make them good, i.e. all cavities come out the same. I still break the top edge of the blocks and use graphite pencil for plate lube. This one seats at base/shoulder fine, don't know how it would do...

    My printer ans printer scanner are both brother. Go to mint site, look for a link to Linux update site. Run driver updated program and it will download and build the driver. Not at my computer now so can't give specifics.

    Sundog - started with a 31-168b for the ar10 and it worked great. When I got into BO I tried the same concept for the 31-142C (PB) worked good too. Changed the nose profile just a tad and eliminated the groove entirely (31-142D) - groove above GC...

    I thought of doing that but in rimmed BO - pressure can get too high for standard loads. x39 looks like it would be OK but continuous 45K psi would be hard on the Stevens?

    Feed problem may be the mag, nose dented or ramp cuts?
