    The rough may or may not be a problem, only some shooting will tell the story. Ive seen some pretty rough bores ( inspected with a Hawkeye Bore Scope) shoot pretty good. Also Shooting may smooth them out as time goes on and round count goes up. As...

    Funny how so many shy away from 3F.. We shoot lots of Goex 3F in all sorts of cartridges. Ol Eyns is even better for full case expansion sealing gasses in the barrel. But hey I guess real cowboys would have used smoky less if it could have been...

    What cartridge are you shooting? That's more of a factor than the barrel length.

    Probably not, but you won't know for sure until you try it out.

    Supply House have corn cob and walnut hulls very reasonable, I think the last 50 lb bag of corn cob I bought was less than $20.00. A 50 lb bag lasts a long time. Corn cob, walnut, rice, Baking soda, sand, glass beads are all used in sand blasting...

    I thought about the o rings also. They do work. I'm still thinking on it. The stop collar isn't all that expensive and with a small thumb screw would be secure and quickly adjustable for different case lengths since I recently added 44-40 to my...

    I think you're right, Mike. Need more tin, not antimony. WW's typically have a bit of both but possibly not enough tin in this batch.

    Thanks for the link...had to get on my cell phone to watch it, as this computer is still out of whack lol. I watched a couple in fact, and there seems to be lot of accuracy capability in that little rifle. Hope yours shoots as well or better!!

    Good evening Tex Well one thing for sure.. That mix will drop that hog. Least it is not a complete failure. Not sure if your WW has any tin in it but I found tin to give the finished cast more ability to not shatter impacting heavy bone. You...

    Actually I got lucky, it seems this batch of boolits is a bit brittle. The boolit that killed this hog basically dropped him in his tracks but did not exit. I can't call that a boolit failure but it wasn't what I wanted to see. I lost two other good...
